Okay you guys, so rugs are slightly more difficult to sum up into one quick design tip as there are always exceptions. But when it comes to choosing a living room rug size, for the most part, I have two things that I always consider without fail each and every time. Number one: is all of the furniture in the seating arrangement on the rug? If not, are at least the front legs of all pieces on the rug? Number two: is there at least 18″ of bare floor around the perimeter of the rug? If the answer is yes, you are choosing a living room rug size that works!
Side tip: to date, I’ve never seen a 5′ x 8′ rug work in a living room setting. It’s simply always too small.
