Decorate with dining room rugs may not be the easiest thing to do but it adds a touch of style that can transform your dining room decor.
A Fluffy pile can permanently trap every crumb from the table. Too-small rugs can trip up chairs. But a good rug can bring color, texture, warmth, and style to the dining room. We are here to give you some advises that you must pay attention to at the moment that you’re choosing a dining rug.
The Size of The Rug
A dining room rug should have at least 24 inches of extra room on all sides of the dining room table to allow enough space for guests to pull out dining room chairs without tripping over the rug.
Pick a Flat Weave or Short Pile Rug
These type of dining room rugs are the most practical choice for your dining room decor. The spills are inevitable so these are more easy to clean but it’s not all and easier to deal when you are pulling a chair.
Use the Rug as a Jumping-off Point for Decorating
If your dining room rugs are the first decor piece of your dining room design you can match your wall colors from the lightest or background color from the rug, and bring in a bolder hue from the rug as an accent in the room, on dining room chairs cushions or in an artwork.
Choose easy-clean material
Natural fibers like cotton and wool are the simplest to clean at home, and synthetic blends are the most difficult.
Try Carpet Tiles
They are a smart choice for a modern dining room because if a stain sets into one square, you can replace it without buying a whole new rug.
Feel Before You Buy a Natural Fiber Rug
Natural fibers like cotton and wool tend to be easy to clean but, on the other hand, materials like sisal, jute, and seagrass can prove to be trickier. The key lies in the texture of the dining room rugs — the finer and smoother it is, the easier it will be to clean.
Have a square dining room? Try a square or round rug. Rectangular room? Use a rectangular rug. Echoing the shape of the room with your rug brings a pleasing feeling of order to a dining room design.
Match Rug Shape to Table Shape
Round dining room tables look great with round or square rugs. Rectangular and oval dining room tables work well with rectangular rugs. Square dining tables tend to work best with square rugs.
Avoid Light Hues
Unless you use your dining room more as a workspace than for dinner, it’s probably best to avoid white and light-colored rugs in this space. Any pale hue is going to show dirt and spots sooner than deeper, richer colors. Light colors are connect do luxury dining rooms but don’t forget that are other options.
Look at The Larger Space
When choosing a color and pattern for your dining room rugs, look at it as a piece in the larger puzzle of your space. What color are your dining room chairs and dining room table, light fixtures, flooring, and wall color? The rug chosen by you must fit with your dining room furniture.
