Here are the most common rug sizes (approximately) and where they are used:
2 x 4 – They are usually called scatter rugs and used in places like bathroom, kitchen and doorway.
3 x 5 – Slightly larger than scatter rugs and usually used in entrances or kitchens.
4 x 6 – Used in entrances and under small coffee tables
5 x 8 – This is one of the most popular sizes to use in living room when you want the rug to come up just to the couch and still show lots of floor.
6 x 9 – Very similar to 5 x 8 just slightly larger.
7 x 10 – This size is not very common, however you can find it if you look around a bit. This size is good for dining rooms with a small space.
8 x 10 – Every time I hear this size, the word dining room comes to my head. It is the most popular size for the dining area which allows the chairs to remain on the rug when pulled back. It is also used in living rooms.
8 x 11 – Very similar to 8 x 10 just slightly longer.
9 x 12 – Most common size for homes with large living room or dinning room.
10 x 14 – These are large rugs which are usually too big for average rooms.
You can also find very large rugs, or sometimes called mansion rugs, in certain patterns. There are also few rug types that can be custom ordered to fit your need.
