How To Choose The Right Size Of Leather Rug

Leather area rugs can completely transform a room by adding personality to it with its colors, patterns, textures, sizing, placement, and much more. If you have considered that an area of your home needs a spark of uniqueness or lacks a piece that will tie everything together, a leather area rug can serve that purpose. 

A few elements you must consider before determining the size of your leather rug are the room's dimensions, furniture, and design. Find out how to choose the right size of a leather rug for each room in your home to ensure that you are making the most out of it.  

Standard Living Room Area Rug Sizes

For your living room, you must first determine how much space you'd like your leather area rug to cover. Maybe you want to place it under a coffee table, under your furniture, or most of the floor. Based on that information, you'll choose the size of the rug that will fit your needs best. 

Standard Measurements For Living Room:

  • For Smaller Areas: 2x3, 3x5, 4x6, 5x7, 6x8 
  • For more furniture: 8x10
  • To cover the majority of space: 9x12

Measure your living room space and the specific area you'd like your rug to sit under. The more accurately you measure, the better you'll determine the size of the rug you'll need. If you are unsure, it is always best to go bigger than stand short when it comes to living room area rugs. 

Standard Dining Room Area Rug Sizes

When it comes to dining rooms, rugs must be large enough to sit under your dining table and chairs. The reason for this is because you don't want anyone's chair to be unsteady, so you must consider the distance chairs take when pushed back. 

Standard Measurements For Dining Rooms:

  • Rectangular or Square tables: 8x10
  • Round Tables: Approximately 8x8

If your dining table is around, we recommend using a round rug, and the same for rectangular or square tables, rugs that match the shape. Taking measurements will guarantee that you get the right size overall. 

Standard Bedroom Area Rug Sizes

Bedroom area rugs can be placed at different parts of the bed. Some people prefer to cover only one-third of the bed, while others prefer two-thirds, and some prefer round rugs for this area. When measuring for your bed area, you must take into account any furniture at the feet of the bed and nightstands.

Standard Measurements For Bedrooms:

  • Smaller bed areas: 6x9 
  • Larger beds: 8x10
  • To cover a larger area: 9x12 

You can also use leather rugs in other areas of your bedroom, such as runner rugs at the foot of your bed, leading to your bathroom hallway, or for your nightstands. Measuring is how you determine leather rug best sizes.
