Choosing the best rug for your space

November 23, 2016

Finding your personal style and picking out the right rug for your room is the hard part, but it can be just as tough to know what exactly your space needs as far as rug size and furniture placement. So today, I’m sharing an easy-to-follow rug size and placement guide to help you get the look you want in your house.

Take a look at the graphic below to see what the placement and standard sizes are for your living room, dining room, kitchen and bedroom. Keep in mind that these aren’t hard and fast rules, and your room may not fit perfectly into these categories. If that’s the case, you can determine a correct rug size by measuring your space, taking into consideration the size of your furniture, and then ordering a rug based on your measurements.

I’ve loved getting to introduce you to my rugs, pillows and throws over the past few months! Remember you can find my collection at retailers near you and also here at The newest installment of my rug collection will be coming soon! We‘ve added all new collections, and each one has its own unique story that I can’t wait to share with you, so stay tuned.

Tag me on Instagram (@joannagaines) if you post a picture of any pieces of my collection in your house! I’d love to see what you choose and how you incorporated it into you space.

    Dear Joanna,

    We watched your show at our Dutch television, but unfortunatly it stopped. Hopefully we can watch your new season (we're still behind, I guess).
    Love your style and I think you are very beautifull loving people. My house here in the Netherlands as a similat style, but we do not have wooden walls. It is all stone. So the shiplap is not what we use that much. In a view rooms I could need your advice, but Waco is much to far away :(
    With love,

    My husband and I love your show and beliefs. 😄 Do you have a site that shows your (store ) market with more things than the online shopping? I see so many things on your show I would like to order. May God bless you all and don't worry about what the news is saying, I know there are many people with the same values. 😄 The Bible clearly states it. They have a right to their ideas but I believe in the Bible. God bless, Sherrie from Saginaw, Michigan

    Hi there. My husband and I are huge fans of your show. We have wanted to build for three years and after watching the episode where you move and redo the shotgun house we know what we want. Is there any way to buy plans for that home?

    My husband and I have watched your flip episodes since early on, read your inspiring biography,and just made first online purchases. We appreciate your humor and positivity!
    Would you ever consider remodeling a Wesley Student Center to accommodate a growing number of college students?

    I love your show and design style, I was fortunate to visit the Silos this past September. Loved your shop, cupcakes and seed store. I have been helping my daughter and husband remodel their home. We put ship lap on their kitchen ceiling. Looks great.
