Rug Size Guide


Sizes of Persian, Oriental and Indian rugs

Please ensure that you measure the space that you are looking for before you start your search as this will help you fit the rug better into your interior. To find the right rug size, consider both the size of your space and the furniture grouping—measuring each as a first step. Before chooseing a rug, you must first understand its purpose. Do you want a rug that will be a real statement piece, or a more neutral design which will blend seamlessly into the space, giving an overall tranquil appearance? Do you want it to unify a room or to define a space? If you are attempting to break up a room into different areas, a number of smaller rugs can do so beautifully.
