Follow these handy tips for finding the right rug and creating the perfect gallery wall arrangement. Sizing Up the Right Rug Classic: If your room is designed with the sofa against a wall, choose a rug that is large enough to fit the front legs of all your seating. Floating: Furniture that is configured in the center of the room should have a rug large enough to fit all four legs of every seating piece. Dining: Choose a rug that is at least two feet wider than the dining room table on each side. Note that the standard dining room rug is at least eight feet wide. Bedroom: Pick a rug large enough to extend across the bottom two-thirds of the bed. It will keep you from stepping out of bed onto a cold, hard floor. Create Your Own Gallery Wall Shape & Size | Variety is the key to a good gallery wall. Choose pieces of all different shapes, sizes and orientations. Personalize | Your family is a work of art, so show them off. Include candid family photos in the collection. Mix & Match | Don’t worry about matching your frames. Varying wides, finishes and colors create a fun, eclectic feel.
