I'm going to tell you all about the size of rugs and how it impacts the price.

The Rug Size You Need

Common sizes show will be less expensive that custom or unusual sizes.

Common sizes are:

2'x3"

4'x6"

8'x10"

8'x11"

9'x12"

Runners

3'x10"

 

Round rugs

8x8

10x10

If you decide to go hand-knotted, the size will vary slightly. For example, a retailer may have a wide selection of 8x10 rugs -- in reality, many of these rugs will measure slightly more or less than 8x10’ (such as 8.09x9.85’). This inconsistency is a result of each rug’s handmade character. If you decide to go for a machine manufactured rug, the sizes will be exact due to them sizes being regulated by a computer.

What Size Rug Do You Need?

Dining Room

Your dining room table and chairs should sit entirely on your rug with enough space for the chairs to be pushed out and still be on the rug. Allow for at least a foot of baseboard to show around the room and Voila! Your perfect size.

Living Room

The rug should be large enough that all of your furniture can sit on top of the rug, with about a foot of base-board showing

Bedroom

For a Queen size bed you will need a 5x8 at the smallest.. But 8x10 is ideal... If you have the space for a larger rug, Go for the 8x10. Ideally, The bed should be sitting on the rug entirely with at least 18 inches of rug around the bed.

What You Should Pay For Rugs

Three Ways That Size Impacts Price

 1. Bigger Size = More Material= More $$$

Although retailers will always set their base prices at different numeric values, the vast majority of them follow the same pricing equation that goes as follows:

Retail Price = (Style Price) x (Square Feet) +/- Popularity.

Basically, This means that the retailer has a set price per rug style ($50 for Peshawar and $18 for Kilim, for example), which the retailer then multiples by each rug’s size to determine its base price.

 2. Hand-Made Means Limited Scalability

Because each  rug is produced entirely by hand, there are few scalable costs and efforts that go into making each rug. That is, the price of cost and effort required to produce each knot in the rug doesn’t decrease as the rug’s size increases. Although scalability is high for many machine-produced and electronic items, it’s very low for handmade items. Consider the effort and cost required for your computer to open up more Internet browsing windows (hardly any!) compared to the effort and cost required for you to assemble an entire extra dinner (a lot!). Similarly, rug artisans contribute an equal amount of time and effort into each knot of a high-quality rug -- meaning a larger rug simply costs more to produce than a smaller rug. If you choose to place a polypropylene (synthetic) rug in your home, know there are a few downsides. The rug is less expensive now, BUT, Because of the rugs last only 3-5 years, you're spending more money in the long run. And they're toxic. You should NOT be paying for that $8 per square foot on a polypropylene rug. Polypropylene is a derivative of petroleum meaning...It's basically plastic.

3. Need a Special Size? You Need a Custom Order

Although custom-designed rugs are occasionally ordered in the Oriental rug industry, the vast majority of custom orders are for custom-sized rugs. Many consumers and designers find the perfect rug and are then disappointed that the rug isn’t made in the particular size they need for their space. In such scenarios, experienced retailers can offer custom sizing solutions. For a high price, the retailer can have producers make a specially sized rug. Since custom orders require more effort and time among both the retailer and producer, they are priced significantly higher than pre-produced, set-sized rugs. BUT, RugKnots can usually swing a custom order for only an extra $5-15 per square foot depending on the style you want.

Finally, It’s important to mention that although size is a key element in a rug’s price, it’s not the only factor a retailer considers when pricing a rug. Other features such as material, knot count, production source, and style all influence a rug’s final price point.
