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 magnoliamarket.com. 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.

    Yes I totally agree with these rug placements. I believe you can even use a smaller one for the dining area and living room.

    Hi Joanna and Chip, You both are the best I have seen!!!!!! We are having a house built and won't be finished until after Christmas 2017. I do have somewhat a sense of style. It's bringing it all together that can be a little bit scary! The house is 1668 sq ft, cape cod kitchen cabinets 2 bath rooms and 3 bedrooms. There is a covered patio and 38' back yard, which I love. Thank you for everything. Love your children too!! ;-)

    Hi Joanna and Chip, I am a big fan of Fixer Upper. I love to watch you work magic on homes. My husband and I are renovating a small home in Bluffton, SC. The home has an open floor plan with the dining/living area with a vaulted ceiling. The kitchen is pretty small and I wondered if you might have some storage ideas if I sent you some photos. You always have such amazing results.
    Thank you!
