Area Rug Guide

Area rugs are not just an accessory in your home, but they also help to define key spaces within your home. Area rugs offer your hardwood, luxury vinyl, and tile floors protection from everyday life while also being comfortable. Area rugs come in all different shapes, colors, textures, and sizes. Rugs are an easy way to express your decorative flair and add contrast to a room, and they can also create a sense of comfort and cohesiveness. Visit Modern Carpet One Floor & Home to find the perfect area rug for your home or office. 

How to Choose an Area Rug

When choosing an area rug, it is helpful to follow certain guidelines. Much of the selection process is based on your own personal taste and sense of style, and our team is here to help you find something to compliment your space perfectly.

Size Guidelines:

  • Room size rugs should leave a border of 6” to 24” on all sides.
  • Dining room rugs should measure at least 4’ longer and wider than the dining room table, so chairs will not fall off the rug when pushed back from the table.
  • Hallway rugs should be approximately 4” to 6” narrower and 6” to 24” shorter than the hallway.
  • Other area rugs will vary in size according to need.
