Area Rug for Living Room; Right Size ?
Marc
June 6, 2012 in Design Dilemma
We are currently shopping for an area rug for our living room. We found one we like but it's only available in 5' x 8'. I think it's too small but my wife likes it. We were initially looking for a rug about 8' x 10'. I have made two simulations (in Photoshop) to see what the 5' x 8' and 8' x 10' rugs would look like in our living room. Note: The sofa is 7' wide. We also have a 2' x 4' table that will be 2' in front of the sofa. The room is about 10' x 12'.

I suggest the 8'x10'. I know it stinks when you can't find the size you want!

I'm having the very same issue....so I suggest the 8x10. I'm going to shop around until I find the perfect one! Good luck :)

Definitely get the 8 x 10 but turn it horizontally from where you have it. As it is placed (or photoshopped) is is dwarfing the room by looking too short to the right of your couch. Pull it forward a bit too and it will look great!
