Decorating Tips: Size Matters

  1. An area rug anchors furniture, defines your space, and makes your room feel cozy while directing traffic around the seating area rather than through it.
  2. Go big with your rug! A small rug makes your room feel out of balance and makes it appear even smaller. At minimum, the front legs of sofas and chairs should sit on the rug.
  3. In a large room, allow approximately 24" between the rug and the wall. In a smaller room, 12-18" is adequate.
