Basic Rug Sizes 8X10, 9X12 AND ABOVE. We can clump all these sizes into one category as they have very similar setups. 5x8 and 6x9 Rugs. As people are downsizing, 5x8 and 6x9 rugs are becoming extremely popular. 4x6 and Below. These sizes work great for unique areas in your home. Runners and Rounds. Layered Rugs. Regardless of where you buy area rugs, the standard sizes are usually the same. Small rugs are usually less than 5′, medium rugs measure between 5'1″-8'6″, and large rugs are between 8'7″-12′. If you need to cover a large area, like a basement or open living room, choose an extra large rug that measures more than 12′. That being said, most people use between a 5x8 and a 9x12 in their living rooms. A 5x8 rug can go in front of your sofa with no furniture going on it, but then larger sized rugs are best practiced to have the front legs of your furniture on the rug. Large room-size rugs— 9' x 12' is common—will look best with a floating furniture arrangement, where the furnishings are pulled away from the wall and rest entirely on the rug surface. If you prefer to have furniture hug the wall, a 6' x 9' or 8' x 10' rug can work well. In a big open-plan space, the rug should sit under the front legs of both the sofas – or if you have a large rug, then both sofas can sit completely atop the rug. If you have chairs in the space as well, then the front legs of the chair should be touching or "hovering" on the rug.
