Hi everyone,

Could really use your help here. I'm struggling to find the right carpet size for the "living room" in my 1 bedroom apt.

My couch is nested into that cutout. Because of this, it's difficult to find a carpet width that works for the room. Most carpets I've found are a) Too narrow (6'7"x9) or b) too wide (8"x10") so it flows over into the hallway space.

What should I do? See below for some dimensions:

Window to hallway opening / end of couch: 108 inches (9ft)

Width of couch / cutout: 90 inches

Full length of room (TV to back of couch): 144 inches (12 ft)
