When it comes to buying carpets, it’s not the price, materials, and patterns that bothers most people, but what size carpet should be chosen.
Today, we will introduce 10 tips for choosing carpet size.
- The front legs of the furniture are on the carpet and the hind legs are on the floor.
Putting only the front legs of the furniture on the carpet is the basic principle of carpeting in most spaces. This way the carpet can not only connect the furniture together but also leave some other space in the room. Especially when the color of the carpet is very similar to the color of the floor, just placing the front legs of the furniture on the carpet can distinguish the carpet from the floor, and the entire space will look more delicate, as shown below.
2. Some of the furniture is on the carpet, and some of the front legs are on the carpet.
If you have a lot of furniture in your living room, and the size of the reserved space is not very large, and there is a strong contrast between the color of the carpet and the color of the floor, then it is recommended to put some furniture on the carpet and some of the front legs .
3. All the furniture is on the carpet.
If all the furniture in a room is placed on the carpet, the entire space will look uniform, complete and orderly, then all the furniture be placed on the carpet.
4. All furniture is not on the carpet.
This rule applies only to small-sized carpets that are more decorative than practical, such as placing a small-sized carpet indoors to increase the layering and texture of the space. At this time, all furniture should not be placed on the carpet.
5. The edge of the carpet is 45 cm from the wall.
When laying a carpet, it is appropriate that the edge of the carpet is about 45 cm from the main wall of the room. This rule applies if the room is a separate space and not for large open spaces.
6. The edge of the carpet is 20 cm from the wall.
If the area of the room is relatively small, then the edge of the carpet should be 15-20 cm from the wall surface. As shown above, according to the actual soft installation situation, the floor is exposed less in the space, giving a more modern feel.
7. Carpet 30-45 cm left by the bed.
To lay a carpet under the bed, you need to ensure that the size of the carpet is large enough. Generally, it is best to leave a width of 30-45 cm on the carpet on both sides of the bed. And depending on the size of the space, you can increase the width appropriately, but try not to waste this. If you only lay the carpet at the end of the bed, the carpet is only slightly wider than the bed, and it looks good visually.
8. The carpet is 60 cm longer than the periphery of the dining table.
Carpets are laid under the table. The carpet needs to be 60 cm longer than the periphery of the table to ensure that the dining chair can still be placed on the carpet during meals.
9. Corridor blanket covers the walking area.
If plaster strip carpet is used in the corridor, the carpet needs to cover the walking area to ensure comfort and safety.
10. Multiple carpets.
If your space is relatively large and there are multiple resting areas, then carpets need to be placed in each area, and the harmony between the carpet and the carpet and the decoration of the entire space must be ensured.
The above are the general rules for carpets, but no matter how many carpet rules there are, only one of them needs to be firmly adhered to and then conform to your own aesthetics and living habits.
