Ideas To Buy Perfect Rug For Your Dining Room

The idea to get a dining room rug is not simply to protect the rug but also to create a soft texture underfoot. Modern rugs in the dining room also add to the entire visual look while complementing the furniture. A rug in the dining area adds warmth, both literally and figuratively.

Rug Size

Size is an important consideration when choosing any rug. A dining room rug should be bigger than the size of your dining table to accommodate the table and chairs properly on it. Measure the rug and consider the full length of your table to the maximum extension.

Rug Shape

The shape of the area rug should also complement your dining room furniture. Most dining room area rugs are rectangular, though you can choose any other. A long, narrow table goes well on the rectangular rug, while a round or oval rug emphasizes the shape of a round or oval table.

The material of the area rugs that you choose will decide the longevity. Your budget also plays a part in choosing the right material. Remember that the dining area rug will receive a lot of traffic, so the material that you choose should be able to withstand that. Cotton and silk rugs aren’t suitable for the purpose, so look for wool ones. You can also look for easy upkeep materials. Manmade fibers are easy to clean and maintain.

Color and Pattern

Next, it comes to choosing the right color or pattern. Those two elements can decide the visual appeal of your dining room. The color of your area rug can decide the color scheme and tie the entire room together. Choose the color that can act as an accent, create drama, bring warmth, or tone down the mood. Multicolor is a great option to hide accidental spills. Medallion print is a popular choice for dining rooms while the stripes can make the room look visually longer or wider. Plain and solid color rugs will add more texture.

Get Rug Pad

The rug pad is important as it helps anchor the rug to the floor and prevents it from wrinkling or slipping. This way your rug will appear aesthetically pleasing and safer as well.
