Dining room rugs can have a big impact in your space. They not only make your room look more comfortable and inviting but also complete the whole design, make the room look more visually pleasing. If you’re looking for the right rug for your dining room decor, check out our tips!
Size: Arrange your dining room furniture without a rug. This will help you measure and pick the right rug for your space. Measure the length and width of your dining table and add 2 feet on each side. At the same times, it shouldn’t cover your entire room. Let the edges of your floor breathe.
Shape: Picking a rug in the same shape of your dining room table is not mandatory but we do agree it looks more put together and harmonious.
Color: Use the rug as a jumping-off point for decorating. If the rug is one of your first purchases for the dining room, you can use it to set the tone for the space and develop a color scheme, like the example above.
Pattern: Go for a rug with lots of pattern or a dark color to help camouflage stubborn stains. If that’s not your style and you prefer something more simple and neutral – read next tip.
Fabric: If you want easy to clean materials, choose cotton and wool. Plush rugs are also a great way to conceal sounds, from dining plates and cutlery.
One last tip! Dining rooms without rugs can look equally beautiful, so don’t feel obligated to have one.
