Rug Size Guides
Entering college can sometimes be daunting, whether it's finding your classes on the first day or getting to know your fellow students. Often times, your dorm room is the once place where you can get a taste of solace. It's important to build a space that fits your personality and unique style. Dorm rooms can differ in shapes depending on the layout of the building and so it's important to determine what size rug works for you before you look at designs and color palettes.
To decide on the right size rug for your dorm room, it’s key to look at the size of your room, the layout, and how you plan on layering your rug with the rest of the furniture. Common shapes for dorm rooms include rectangular, circle, or square, but there are other options too if you want to make a bold statement. As for size, you’ll often use sizes like 3x5, 4x6, 5x8, or 6x9 rugs.
There’s a huge variety of color palettes and designs out there to choose from as well, so you can go bold and quirky with geometric shapes and bold colors or you can create a relaxing dorm with subdued colors and traditional prints. No matter which style you lean towards, you can personalize your dorm room to make it feel like home.
If your three beds are scattered along different walls of the room, then you may choose a large area rug to fill the entire room and make it feel cohesive. Otherwise, if your beds are along the same wall, you can use a runner rug between each bed like you would in a 2 bed dorm. You can also follow the guidelines for 2 beds if your room has one bunk bed and one single bed; using a larger area rug between the two sets of beds can tie the space together thematically and balance the room.
