If you're shopping for a dining room rug, know the size of the table; you don't want your chairs falling off the edge of the rug when you back up from the table. For stair runners, count the number of risers (each step has a riser and tread). Most new rugs come in sizes from 2 feet by 3 feet to 10 feet by 14 feet—although some come in larger sizes. Runners are typically 30 inches wide. If you are Buying Rug Online then you should know the Rug Size.

The weave should be fine enough to clearly express the motifs of the design. A design may have less than 100 knots per square inch while a detailed floral pattern may require 300 or more.
