Decorating a 15x15 Room: Rugs Edition

In order to create a balanced room, you must carefully consider the room’s layout and what size rug best compliments the room itself and the nearby furniture. When choosing a rug size, it’s vital to consider the size and function of the room as well. For example, the size of the rug you choose for your 15x15 room will depend on the function of that room, whether it be a living room, dining room, bedroom, or other space. Although you can just choose a base size like a 9x12 to fill the whole room.

How To Choose Rug Colors, Patterns, and Material

Your rug’s color palette and design should fit into your room’s overarching theme and style. When you’re looking for the right rug, look at your room’s existing color palette and decorative elements and then look for a rug that uses similar colors and design elements to tie the room together. As for material, you have your pick of what materials produce your favorite texture, pile-height, and durability/ease of cleaning, so think through what you need practically and stylistically as you shop for your perfect rug.

What Is The Best Size Rug for an 11 X 13 Room?

Following the principles of not overfilling the room, the best size rug to fill an 11x13 room would be an 8x10 rug or a rug that is 8 or 9 feet in diameter. Once again, that gives plenty of room for the room to breathe, but if you want to establish a smaller space for conversation, your bed, or some other space, consider these:

  • 8x10 is ideal for a 11x13 room.
  • 5x7 or 6x9 is an excellent choice to create a smaller space.


What Is The Best Size Rug for a 10 X 12 Room?

The best size rug to completely fill a 10x12 room would be an 8x10 rug or a round/square rug of a similar size. The key is to leave room to breathe on the sides and ends of the rug so that it's not pressed right up against the walls and crowding the space.

  • Grounded: 8x10 round/square rug.
  • Accent: 4x6 or 5x7 rug can add a nice touch to a minimalist setting.

What is the Best Size Rug for a 12x13 Room?

Rooms that are 12x13 are well accented by rectangular rugs. A 9x12 rug can fill the majority of the room, or a smaller 6x9 or 8x10 rug can accent specific areas. When using a 9x12 rug in a 12x13 room, it’s important to place the rug so the longer portion of the rug spans the longest side of the room. That way, there is still 6 inches of flooring visible between the rug’s edges and the walls. 

  • 9x12 is a great size for filling the entire room

  • 6x9 or 8x10 rugs can be used to define smaller spaces in a 12x13 room


What Is The Best Size Rug for a 12 X 12 Room?

In a perfectly square room like a 12 x12 room, you can add to that symmetry by using a round or square rug that is 9 feet or 10 feet in size. We recommend the following:

Best 12x12 Room Rugs:

  • Accent: 5x8, 6x9 are excellent options.
  • Round/Square: 9' and 10' will ground the room well

How To Buy The Correct Rug Size for a 15 X 15 Room?

Your rug should never be pressed right up against the walls; ideally, you should leave about one-two feet of space between the rug’s edges and the walls so that the room doesn’t feel cramped. To set apart separate areas of the room, try for 6x9 and 8x10 rugs (or something similar depending on how you plan on layering it with your furniture/fixtures).

  • Fully Grounded: 9x12 will complete your room
  • Dynamic Appeal: 6x9 or 8x10 will give an excellent look


What is the Best Size Rug for a 12x14 Room?

12x14 rooms can be highlighted with 6x9 or 8x10 rugs if you want to showcase any natural flooring around the room’s edges. Similar to other rooms that are 12 feet long or wide, you can use a 9x12 rug as long as the long side of the rug runs across the long side of the room. In general, a rug should not be pressed right up against the walls or trim; there should be some room to breathe between the rug and the walls to show off natural flooring or carpet. 

  • 9x12 rugs can be used to accent the entire room

  • 6x9 and 8x10 rugs can define specific spaces like seating areas, dining tables, and beds.

What Is The Best Size Rug for a 15 X 20 Room?

In rooms of this size, you’ll likely use medium sized rugs to define specific areas as opposed to filling the entire room. If that’s the case for you, look at an oversized rug like an 8x10, 9x12, or even a 12x15 rug for large seating areas, lavish dining sets, or making a big statement with a bedroom. Those rug sizes will give you plenty of room to work with and options with layering your furniture as well as blending together several areas of the room.

  • Fully Grounded: 12x15 rugs is the ideal size
  • Accentuate: 8x10 or 9x12 make excellent choices.

How To Choose Rug Style and Material

The material you choose should be both beautiful and practical to you. There are plenty of machine washable rugs out there that are great for high-traffic areas or homes with kids, but there are other materials as well that are easy to spot-clean. Within your search for materials, you can also choose different pile heights and looks, such as a shag rug or a flat-weave. Even in the different materials, you can find patterns that fit into a variety of styles, such as geometric shapes that are modern or boho along with oriental medallions that can elevate homey styles like farmhouse. There’s a lot out there to sift through, but it comes down to your preference with style, comfort, and practicality.
