Rug size is an important and
decision. As a general rule, at
least a foot of flooring should
be exposed around an area rug to
highlight the rug, furniture,
and flooring. 6' x 9' is a
popular size for a rug that is
under a coffee table and being
used to bring together a seating
area. Under a dining table, an
8' wide rug is usually required.
Accent rugs can be as small as
2' x 3'.
