Determine the right rug size for a corner sofa

Variant 1: Small rug - big effect!

In general, we recommend to choose a living room rug at least standard size 170x240 cm to a corner sofa. In this variant, only a small living room table stands on the rug. The corner sofa and possibly armchairs are not on the rug, but in front of it. We recommend a rug of this size, for example, for small rooms that have limited space or other spatial limitations.

Variant 2: The increase

If the rug size is not necessarily determined by space or budget, then we recommend to choose a standard size larger. The rug size 200x250cm now allows the front legs of the corner sofa and also an armchair to stand on the rug. In the professional world, it is called the creation of a living island when the living room furniture and the rug have a connection with each other. Visually, the living area thus automatically appears larger and more spacious. In general, the rule of thumb is that the larger the rug can be, the more spacious the living island will look.

Variant 3: Spacious living island

To create a really cozy and homely island of well-being, we usually recommend to put at least the size 250x300 cm to a corner sofa. With this rug size, the corner sofa would stand generously on the rug and, for example, a lounge chair could stand on the rug as well as a side table. This variant creates a spacious living island.

Variant 4: The XL living feel

If you have a really spacious living room, you can opt for the ultimate XL living feeling. With a rug measuring 250x350 cm or 300x400 cm, the whole corner sofa and any other pieces of furniture can be placed on the rug. The rug gives the living island a wonderful floor and provides maximum well-being.
