Size and Placement

Size and Placement


Start by measuring your room to determine its area, paying close attention to constraints like door openings, any places where walls jut out, and your ideal furniture arrangement. Most designers recommend leaving two feet of bare floor between the rug and walls to keep a space from feeling overwhelmed, but feel free to bend this rule in smaller spaces or according to your personal preference. 


We’ve provided some inspiration below to guide you as you choose the right rug for each room in your home.

Couches may be placed on, partially on, or near your rug.

Occasional chairs are ideally placed on rugs, but let your heart be your guide.

Dining Rooms

Dining Rooms

Dining chairs should sit on your rug, even when the chairs are pulled out. Allowing two to four feet on each side of each chair will ensure they stay on your rug at all times.
Rectangular tables often look best with rectangular rugs. Round tables work well with round or rectangular rugs.

Bedrooms

Bedrooms

Choose a rug that’s large enough to accommodate your bed and bedside furniture. If that’s not possible, select a rug that fills the desired space at the foot of your bed while extending at least halfway under your bed.

Our rugs range from traditional to contemporary, from statement pieces to neutral foundation. This means there’s a rug for almost every room in any home…but how do you choose? Picking a design is more of an art than a  science, but there are a few questions you can ask yourself to guide your decision

Determining the right color

Determining the right color

We do our best to make sure rug colors are represented accurately. However, there may be subtle variations in color due to the uniqueness of the natural fibers we use, or, if dyes are used, variations in dye lots.

Additionally, though we take care to ensure our photos match the actual color of our rugs as seen in natural daylight, lighting conditions in your home may differ. This is particularly the case with fibers that possess a natural sheen, which may look different in brighter lighting conditions.

For rugs with a higher pile, colors may appear more or less intense in different lighting conditions. Some general advice is that if you view a rug with the pile angled towards you, the rug will appear lighter. If you view a rug with pile angled away from you, the colors will appear more saturated.

Finally, color variations may be the result of your screen’s color, contrast, and brightness. We highly recommend you purchase a physical rug sample before making your final decision should you have any concern about matching your rug to other items in your room.

We are always happy to work with you to help you find the Enkay rug of your dreams. Email us at hello@enkay.com and let us know how we can be of service.
