Area Rugs in Pembroke Pines, FL
What Size Area Rug Fits My Room?
One of the chief benefits of using area rugs is the sheer number of options they provide when it comes to room design. You’ll find a huge variety of rug sizes and shapes when you shop with Dolphin Carpet. The rug size we’ll recommend for your particular room will depend both on the room itself and your design goals.
- For proper coverage in large rooms, you’ll want a rug in 8x10 or larger. You should also choose large sizes to place underneath dining room tables & chairs to ensure that all furniture legs are standing on the rug.
- In medium-sized rooms, a 5x7 rug may be more appropriate. These rugs can also be used to frame small conversational seating arrangements, bringing together various pieces of furniture into a cohesive “mini-room” within your design.
- For small spaces, you might opt for a 4x6 or even smaller. We have rugs as small as 2x3 doormats which are perfect for entryways as well as high-traffic areas within your kitchen or bathrooms.

How to Keep an Area Rug Clean
If you have rugs in your home, they should be maintained regularly as a part of your normal cleaning routine. The easiest way to clean a rug is by vacuuming, which will pick up most of the dirt and debris that gathers in your rug’s fibers as a result of normal foot traffic.
However, you should also consider having your rug cleaned by a professional on an annual basis. This can consist of a deep clean using the hot water extraction method. A steam cleaning is also sometimes sufficient, but only if performed properly according to your rug manufacturer’s recommendations.
You’ll find that area rugs can be safely used on any flooring surface, as long as you pair your materials correctly and use a high-quality rug pad.
What are Area Rug Pads?
An area rug pad is a layer of material cut to size and placed between your rug and your floors. They serve a variety of purposes simultaneously and are a worthwhile investment for rug owners.
First and foremost, rug pads help grip both your rug and your floors to prevent slippage, keeping you and others safe while walking in your home. This also helps rugs from bunching, bending and tearing, keeping them stable & helping to prolong their beauty & useful lifespan.
The other primary use for rug pads is cushioning. The thicker the pad, the more cushion your rug will have, lending extra comfort underfoot. Rug pads can be cut to any size, and can be used to fit round rugs & runners as well as standard rectangular rugs.
