What Size Rug For Couch And Coffee Table
It doesn t need to sit beneath the couch completely but shouldn t float out from the coach either.
What size rug for couch and coffee table. Don t be too funky and try to use round rugs with square tables leave that to the experts use a rectangular rug with rectangular coffee table and a round or oval area rug with a round or oval coffee table. To ensure comfortable foot traffic around the rest of your living room we also recommend leaving 30 of space between the coffee table and other pieces of furniture like a tv stand or entertainment center. To choose an area rug to go directly under the coffee table of course you need to make sure all four legs of your coffee table rest on the rug. While you can of course go with whatever shape and size you like to have an ideal relationship between your coffee table and sofa here are some general things to keep in mind.
For smaller areas we recommend a 5 x 8 6 x 9. Your coffee table should be at least half the length of your sofa but no more than roughly the length and should sit at about the same height as the seat give or take 4 inches i e if your sofa is 90 inches. A 5x8 rug can go in front of your sofa with no furniture going on it but then larger sized rugs are best practiced to have the front legs of your furniture on the rug. To allow for easy maneuvering around your coffee table we recommend leaving between 12 and 18 of space between the coffee table and the sofa.
To calculate the width of the perfect coffee table for your space measure from your sofa to your tv stand or other big piece of furniture. If you choose a layout with the sofa on the rug the rug should extend at least 6 on each side for proper scale. You will need an 8 10 or 9 12 rug size for under a typical dining room table.

For most spaces that means a 5 8 rug size is too small. You would need a 10x14 rug up to 12x18 rug to allow this. Learn more about these layouts below. That being said most people use between a 5x8 and a 9x12 in their living rooms.
It is also acceptable to situate your sofa and arm chairs so that only the front legs rest on the rug. Not only does your area rug size need to be large enough for your table but it also needs to extend far enough to where your chairs sit on it completely. There are three main layouts. If you are placing the rug under a coffee table make sure that it can accommodate all four legs of the table.
A rug should run just beyond your couch and seating area. If you don t an 8 by 10 foot rug should suffice. Better homes and gardens in the example above as you can see the rug placement fits the proportions of the room and extends 8 12 beyond the edge of the couch. Area rugs that are 4 x 6 feet or 6 x 9 feet are generally suitable for using under coffee tables.
For a twin or full size bed aim for a 6 by 9 foot rug or bigger. With this option you should leave 18 to 24 inches of space around the outer edges of the furniture. The front of the rug should rest a few inches in front of your sofa. As a general rule for a king or queen bed a 9 by 12 foot rug is ideal if you have a bench at the foot of the bed.
