If you just try and guess at the best size for the rug you are after, then you could make an expensive mistake. Measuring properly will ensure that you get the best rug you’re your particular lounge space.
First of all you need to measure the exact area where you are hoping to lay the rug. This also means measuring items of furniture like sofas and armchairs that will sit around the rug. You need to figure out how much of a gap you want between these items and the rug itself if you are hoping for a nice square arrangement.
You should also measure any coffee tables you might be thinking of placing on the rug once it has been introduced. If standard sizes don’t quite satisfy, then you can look into introducing custom made modern rugs instead.
