Guide to Rugs


Select Rug Style

Area Rugs

Area rugs are designed to cover most of the flooring in a single room. They are often placed on top of hard flooring and sometimes over carpeting to decorate or define special areas of the home, as well as to protect other flooring surfaces.


Throw Rugs

Throw rugs are smaller than area rugs, generally between 2 x 3 feet to 2 x 5 feet, and live up to their name. They serve to focus attention on a special area of a home such as an entryway, as well as to protect flooring surfaces.


Runner Rugs

Runner Rugs are long and narrow and are used to direct traffic through areas such as hallways and range in precut sizes from 2 x 5 feet to 14 feet and longer.


Select Rug Size

Living Room: Full-Size Rug

A popular placement for an open-plan living room area is to have the front legs of the furniture on the rug with the back legs on the floor. This creates a cozy space and will add some proportion to your living room.

 Living Room: Area Rug

Choose a smaller-sized area rug such as a 5’ x 8' if you prefer to keep your furniture off the rug. The coffee table should fit in the center of the rug, with no legs on the floor.
