The Cossart Guide to Rugs

Finding the best rug for a space can be hard enough, but now I have to figure out the right size too? No thank you! Don't worry, we're here to help ease the stress of rug shopping with a Cossart Guide to Rug Sizes. First things first: what are you using the rug for? Do you want it to fill the room or break it up? Do you want the rug to accent the room or it is a purely functional need? If you want to fill the room, think about covering the entire furnished area. If you want to break up the room, then think about zoning and using the rug to create boundaries. If the rug is just an accent, think smaller. And if it's just for function, allow enough rug to cover the intended area. The next thing to think about is scale and proportion, if the rug is too big it can overwhelm the space, but if it's too small the room can feel cramped. The diagram below can help you figure out the size rug that you should be using in your space and put you one step closer to finding the perfect rug!
