Where to Place Large Rugs
The first and foremost consideration you should always have while rug shopping is your specific, desired space. Understanding your design parameters is crucial in terms of choosing the right size, as well as aesthetic design, for your large area rug. Some common large rug sizes include the following:
As you can probably tell by scrolling through our large rug selection, we have a varying supply of all these larger sizes in terms of color and design. There will always be personal circumstances that help determine your final purchasing decisions, but always keep the following in mind when it comes to choosing the right areas for large rugs:
Large area rugs tend to work well as the centerpiece or focal point of any given room, and one of the main purposes of a room’s focal point is to tie the rest of the furniture together in a cohesive manner. It’s a standard interior design technique to make sure that your area rug is at least big enough to reach the front legs of the room’s furniture pieces, because this will essentially make the room appear larger and will also be a very appealing design statement!
A lot of homeowners place large rugs within their dining rooms, and depending on the size of your dining room table you can adjust the size of your area rug appropriately. We offer a multitude of popular choices when it comes to dining room aesthetics, so the limits are truly endless when it comes to this important design decision!
Large rugs are also a really great option to go underneath queen and king size beds. A good rule of thumb in terms of bedroom design is to place the area rug about two thirds of the way under the bed, allowing for a nice morning landing. Although bedroom rugs tend to be a bit different than dining room rugs, Rug Source has you covered with very soft, comfy materials!
Large rugs also work tremendously well within verandas and patios, because everyone enjoys a soft walking surface and some added style to these often bare outdoor living areas. Even if your patio or porch isn’t protected from weather elements, we’ll be sure to set you up with a large rug that’s very durable and can withstand being outdoors for long periods of time!
Additional Tips for Large Rug Shopping
Everyone’s personal preferences and architectural parameters are always going to be 100% unique, which is part of why rug shopping can be such an exciting experience. Your area rug should speak volumes towards who you are as a person, and our experts always enjoy getting to know our clients while figuring out their very best options!
The following are some additional tips to keep in mind while looking for your next large area rug:
Go Big or Big(ish)
One important tip in terms of your final size decision is that you should try to keep about 12-18” of space between your area rug and your room’s walls, and there’s nothing wrong with fitting your furniture completely on your rug or just the front legs. A 12’x15’ rug may not be feasible for a lot of people’s existing furniture setups and budgetary constraints, so going big(ish) with an 8’x10’ or 9’x12’ will also always work within many different designs and styles.
Do Precise Measurements
It’s important to remember that a large area rug is going to take up a lot of space, so you should use an easily removable tape or other type of clear visual to help you fully conceptualize where your rug will go and how it will end up looking. This will go a long way in terms of helping you to 100% know what size will work best for you and your room.
But if you’re on the fence between two sizes, choose the bigger size. This is because going too small can many times leave a room appearing disjointed and less cohesive as opposed to larger area rugs.
