Choosing a Dining room rug just in time for the holidays!

Posted in Blog

      The holidays are fast approaching, and Thanksgiving is right around the corner! Soon enough, families will be gathering around the dining room table. We are often asked what size a rug should be under a table. The rule of thumb is to leave 18-24 inches of rug on all sides for chairs to get pushed back.

      The rug should be sized to fit the room, not the table. In some cases, this will not apply. If the dining space is part of a large, open space and needs to be defined, the rug can do that.


This large area rug compliments the large size of the room and ties the furniture pieces together:

This is a standard guide for choosing the minimum rug size based on standard size dining tables, rugs can always be larger depending on the room size. Feel free to send us any images or dimensions of your space and we will provide our recommendation for size!
