What is a good size rug for a family/living room?
The smallest rug that looks like an area rug is a 4′ x 6′ size. Of course, it all depends on the space you have. A typical sofa measures 7′ in length and many customers want at least this length for there area rug. (i.e. 5 x 7′, 6′ x 8′). Also, many customers like to “anchor” their rug (place the legs of the furniture on the rug).
Do you carry runners?
Yes, we do. A typical size is a 2′ x 5′ or 2′ x 6′, but we also weave runners in a 28″ and 3′ width. Runners are very popular in front of kitchen sinks, hallways, beside beds, etc.
hat is a good size for in front of a kitchen sink?
The smallest size that I recommend is a 2′ x 3′. The sink measures 33″, and anything smaller than this aesthetically just looks too small. The only exception is a corner sink, and generally customers like a 24″ length (i.e. 20″ x 24″ or 2′ x 2′).
What is a good size for under a dining room table?
Measure your table, and then add 3′ to 4′. For example, if your table measures 4′ x 6′, a 7′ x 9′ rug would give you the additional 3 foot, whereas an 8′ x 10′ would give you the additional 4 feet. This is the amount of space needed so that your chairs will still be on the rug when the chairs are extended out when dining. You will need to measure your space in the dining room to see what is the best fit.
