Rug Size Guides
Building your room to your personal aesthetic doesn't have to be limited to a rug that grounds your room, or accentuating different aspects with multiple rugs. With the art of layering rugs you can build upon the decor of your space with a simple addition with contrasting colors giving the room a richer feel. We've created a small guide to help you in knowing what sizes to layer with accordingly.
On their own, 8x10 rugs are ideal for living rooms, bedrooms, or in dining rooms outfitted for four to six people. If you want to layer a rug over an 8x10 rug, then you should look at options like 4x6 or 5x7. Remember though, the layering of the rugs shouldn’t get in the way of any practical needs, such as pushing your chair in and out at the table.
Ideal Rugs To Layer on an 8x10:
Ideally, when you layer rugs, you want somewhere between one and three feet of the bottom rug reaching out past the edges of the top rug. That’s a big range, and what size you choose for the top rug will vary depending on how bold you want to be with your style and how your rug(s) overlap with the furniture. With layering and overlapping furniture in mind, you also have to consider the rug’s materials and pile height.Oftentimes, you’ll use low pile or flat rugs so that there’s no tripping hazards, although sometimes you can use medium pile/shag rugs on top of a flat one.
