HOW TO CHOOSE A RIGHT RUG?
To determine your Rug/ Carpet or Kilim size, measure the place where you want to put it or spread and fold a bed-sheet at the wished size – this will give you an idea of the right proportions. Make sure to note down minimum and maximum lengths to have a larger choice range.
Front of a couch
Rug or Kilim length must be at least equal to the width of the couch. Sofa on the carpet or off the mat? There is no real rule, which may eventually determine the choice is the reason Rug or Kilim.
Under a table
Add about 20 inches on each side of the table to help install the chairs. This rule is used primarily for knotted Rugs. As fare as kilim is thin, the back legs of the chairs can exceed the kilim.
In a corridor
Allow at least 4 inches between the wall and Rug or Kilim runners.
