A beautifully proportioned rug can tie an entire room together, but it can be tricky to get the size and placement right. Armadillo have prepared these tried and tested room layouts to guide you.

As a rule of thumb, a rug should be large enough to anchor your furniture whilst leaving some of the floor exposed. When in doubt, go for the biggest size possible – there’s nothing worse than an undersized rug!

Armadillo rugs are available in a range of standard sizes or can be custom made to perfectly fit your space. 

To try our personalised in-home or distant consultation service, phone our showroom 09 373 3396 or simply fill out our online form. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us we're here to help you find the perfect rug for your space, style and budget. 


Living Room guide
Aim for a living room rug that is big enough to fully fit your furniture, with at least 20 cm of rug visible on all sides. Alternatively, arrange furniture partially on top, with the rug sitting underneath the front two legs of your sofa and side chairs. If you prefer a smaller rug, arrange seating at an even distance. Round rugs will make a living room feel more intimate and inviting.
