Have a good weekend? It was the first weekend of Winterlude here in Ottawa so we spent some time skating on the canal, did a little skiing and of course...the Superbowl. Well, Mr. Fix-It watched the game with his buddies and I of course, watched the half-time show. How awesome was Bruno Mars? I was doing some serious couch dancing!
So, do you have a rug in your house that's too small? Or looking for that perfect rug but not sure how big it should be? Shopping for a rug can be tough and overwhelming. It's hard to know what size to buy and often people end up buying the 4X6 or 5X7 because it's cheaper than the 6X8 or 8X10 that their space probably needs. In the end, you've spent less money BUT you're rug is too small for your space, your room looks like it's floating and you've wasted your moolah. No fun.
Here are some tips to follow when searching for that perfect rug:
- Get that furniture on the rug!
You can either have all the furniture fully on the rug...
OR have the front legs on and back legs off...
If the rug is going under the dining room table, all the chairs should still be on the rug even when they are pulled out to sit down. This way the chairs won't scratch the floor and your guests won't be half on the rug and half on the hardwood floor.
A good formula to follow is: measure the width and length of your table and add 18-24' to each of the four sides.
- Go Custom BUT Custom Can Be on a Budget!
