Are you ready to buy a new rug? Perhaps you are working on a home remodel or simply want to change up the décor in a single room. No matter why you are in the market for an oriental rug, you may find yourself struggling to find a rug in a size that suits your needs. Most people do not realize that rug size is fairly standardized. You may be able to save yourself some time and effort by becoming familiar with standard rug sizes.

The Norm 

The most common rugs are made to cover large parts of bigger rooms, such as the dining or living room. For this reason, both sides are similar in length. For example, you may be able to find standard rugs in the following dimensions:

  • 5 feet by 3 feet
  • 7 feet by 5 feet
  • 10 feet by 7 feet
  • 12 feet by 9 feet
  • 13 feet by 10 feet
  • 14 feet by 11 feet

When you shop for a standard rug size, you may find a greater variety.

The Runners

Runners are rugs that go in longer spaces, such as hallways. While this type of oriental rug size may not be the norm, the following sizes are still fairly easy to find:

  • 6 feet by 3 feet
  • 9 feet by 3 feet
  • 12 feet by 3 feet
  • 16 feet by 3 feet

This type of rug is woven with one dimension significantly smaller than the other in order to better fill the long, narrow spaces.

The Unusual

If none of these sizes are right, you may not be out of luck quite yet. There are a few other sizes of oriental rugs that you might be able to find. Of course, your choices may be limited, but you may find rugs with the following dimensions:

  • 6 feet by 4 feet
  • 8 feet by 5 feet
  • 10 feet by 8 feet
  • 11 feet by 9 feet
  • 12 feet by 10 feet
  • 14 feet by 10 feet

The next time you are out shopping for an oriental rug keep the standard rug size in mind to make finding a product easier.
