Area rugs are some of the best accessories that you can include in your home décor. The right rug serves as a unifying thread for the rest of the room. Use an area rug in conjunction with your dining room furniture to create a space that is perfect for entertaining. When starting the search for a rug, be sure to:
Consider the Size of the Table
When placing an area rug in the dining room, you want to find one that is large enough to fit underneath the table and all of the chairs. Take measurements around the perimeter of the table when all of the chairs are pushed in. You should also factor in at least 30 inches to include the space needed when the chairs are pulled out. These measurements will help you choose a rug that is the ideal size for your dining room furniture.
Consider the Style of the Room
A modern rug might look out of place in an otherwise traditional room. Try to find a rug that allows you to stick to your desired design style. Work with colors and shapes that are already present in the room. Although the rug does not have to match exactly, it will create a better visual flow if it complements the style of the room.
Consider the Material of the Rug
Rugs are made using synthetic and natural fibers. While the natural fibers often look better with age, you might prefer a synthetic rug. The lack of knots and hand-weaving accents makes it easier for your guests to slide their chairs in and out.
