Besides add comfort, style and colour to any room, a dining room rug can also frame the dining room table and make the whole room visually more pleasant. However, picking the perfect rug can be a little tricky task. That’s why Modern Dining Tables‘ editors have prepared a list with five golden rules for choosing the perfect dining room rug. Check them out!
RULE #1 – ARRANGE YOUR FURNITURE WITHOUT A RUG
First of all, before you add a dining room rug, you must to arrange and rearrange the entire dining room furniture and get the placement of everything exactly how you want it. Then will be easier to measure and pick the right rug for your space.
RULE #2 – CHOOSING THE PERFECT SIZE
Probably, this will be the most important rule for finding the perfect size rug for your dining room: measure your dining table and add 20-30 inches. Then, you’ll have the perfect size rug for your dining area.
RULE #3 – LET YOUR DINING ROOM BREATHE
The dining room rug should not be so big that it covers your entire dining area. You must let the edges of your room “breathe”. So make sure you have at least 6-18 inches of floor showing all the way around the room.
RULE #4 – PICKING THE RIGHT MATERIAL AND PATTERN
Interior Designers and other experts around the world advise to choose the rug at first place and then coordinate and style your room around it. And keep in you mind: a rug can set the tone for the whole room!!
RULE #5 – GO SMOOTH
It’s really important to pick a rug with a low nap or one that is relatively smooth. When a rug is too high or too nubby, for instance, it becomes difficult to move the furniture (especially the dining chairs).
