Choosing the Right Size Rug for Your Space

Rugs not only add comfort and warmth to a space but also contribute to its overall aesthetic appeal. Selecting the right rug size is crucial to create a harmonious and balanced look in each area of your home. Here, Dress Your Space takes you through the different considerations and recommends the best options for specific areas of your home.

Entryways and Foyers

For entryways and foyers, opt for smaller-sized rugs that can fit comfortably in the space. A smallish rug provides a welcoming touch while allowing the surrounding floor to be visible.

Living Rooms and Family Rooms

In larger living rooms and family rooms, a well-proportioned rug can tie the seating area together. Consider placing a rug that accommodates all the main furniture pieces, such as a Bayliss Balance rug that comes in various sizes sure to suit. Ensure that the front legs of sofas and chairs are placed on the rug to create a cohesive and inviting space.

Dining Rooms

In dining rooms, the rug should extend beyond the dining table and chairs to allow for easy movement and comfortable seating. Ideally, choose a rug that is large enough to accommodate both the table and chairs. This ensures that the chairs remain on the rug even when pulled out.


When it comes to bedroom rugs, there are various placement options. For a large bedroom, consider a rug that extends at least 45 to 60 cm beyond the sides and foot of the bed. In smaller bedrooms, a runner rug on one or both sides of the bed can add a cosy touch.

Hallways and Narrow Spaces

In narrow areas like hallways or galley kitchens, a hallways runner is an ideal choice. Go for a rug size that matches the length of the hallway or extends a few inches beyond the furniture. Common runner rug sizes include 300cm x 80cm and 400cm x 80cm. As with all rug options mentioned, a non-slip underlay is almost always a good idea.
