Area rugs in Ridgeland, SC, offer exceptional benefits, including visual appeal and fantastic durability, making them a valued part of your flooring experience. Size can also play a crucial role in your rug choice, with some options better than others in certain rooms.

If you've never considered area rugs in custom sizes, this is a great time to learn why they can help. Here are some facts that could help you choose the perfect piece immediately.

Standard or custom sizes?

As you search for the perfect rugs for sale, you'll hear the term "standard sizing" to describe common rug sizes. You'll see area rugs in some common sizes, including:

  • 3 x 5 
  • 4 x 6 
  • 5 x 8 
  • 6 x 9 
  • 8 x 10 
  • 9 x 12 
  • 10 x 13

While these are some standard sizes, you should know there are many other shapes and sizes, which will help give you the look and experience you need. It's essential to see the room size where these rugs will go to ensure the best area rugs, mainly when other furnishings cater to the décor.

An example would be choosing a rug that works well with your furniture placement in living and dining rooms. However, the wrong size, whether too small or large, can cause the room to feel and look "off", decreasing ambiance and comfort.

Room size affects rug size

Although some rugs come in standard sizes, that doesn’t mean they’re perfect for every home. Smaller homes need smaller rugs, with some options even helping to make the space appear larger than it is.

On the other hand, if you’re adding area rugs to a large, open-air room, larger sizes will balance the area better and create a beautiful space. It also covers more space for durability, resulting in less scratching or stains on the flooring beneath.
