And if you are going with a custom made rug then you can take proper measurement of the space where you want to place the rug. A custom made rug is best option if you have an odd shape floor and you can customize the rug according to floor shape and size.
How to measure size
Most common mistake that people make they buy a rug that is too small for the space. People mostly spend money on hardwood floor and laminated floor but they don’t know that a hand tufted rug with some floral pattern will enhance the beauty of the complete floor.
We mostly recommend customers to buy a rug according to furniture configuration not the room size. Because a rug always placed nearby furniture so you can take measurement after placing the furniture.
Tape trick
If you don’t have any idea that how to take proper measurement then you can take help of tape. Measure out a floor space based on the size you think you need, according to the standard sizes listed above. Then, using a removable masking that will not harm your floor, tape off the area you just measured. You will be able to see the outline of where the rug would end, helping you to see how a rug of that size would fit into your space. Once you are satisfied with the size of your taped-off area, you are ready to go rug shopping!
Final Point
There is one last rule about determining the size of an area rug: rules are made to be broken! The above ‘rules’ are standard guidelines; you alone can determine what is best for your home, because you are the one who has to live in it! Your home should be a reflection of your imagination, so if you feel like breaking any of the above rules, I say go for it!
