Rugs in the Dining Space:

The arrangement of the dining space is very important to convey the message of intimacy. It is also very important to choose the correct rug according to the shape of the room and the table. For the rectangular dining table shapes, you should always pick the rectangular rugs, whereas for the round table you should go for the circular rugs. Mismatching in this area will create a disaster. You need to take the measurement of the rug properly as to place the entire furniture on it, even when the chairs are pushed back they should remain on the rug itself.

Rug arrangement in the Bedroom:

While placing a rug in your bedroom, you need to keep in mind that the bed should be our focal point. Based on the positioning of the bed, the rug/rugs should be spread underneath or beside.


  • All legs of the bed on For this set-up of the rug, you need to keep in mind that the bed and the alongside table should be placed on the rug. Keeping the dressers or wardrobes out of the focus, this will give an encompassing look to your room.
  • On either side: If the placement of the bed is against one wall of the room, you can place a rug on the other side. But while making this arrangement you need to make sure that the runner doesn’t touch the foot of the bed.

  • Just the front legs: In this arrangement, the rug covers a 2/3rd area of the bed just shying away from the nightstand. To achieve this look make sure the rug extends 45-60 cm around the periphery of the bed.
