Dining Room Tips: How to Choose The Perfect Rug ⇒ Finding the perfect dining room rug is not easy. Even though most dining rooms will require a rug that is practical, having one that is also stylish, often comes as a priority too. A great rug will be like an extra soul in the room, filled with colour, warmth an texture. How do you do it? Follow CovetED below to find out!
First question, what’s your theme? That’s where you should start so that you can more easily define what rug you need based on colour, texture, warmth, and purpose; a fluffy pile can permanently trap every crumb from the table, while a small rug can also trip up chairs.
Match rug shape to room shape! If you have a square dining room, try getting a square or round rug. Rectangular room? Use a rectangular rug. This will definitely help to ensure that the room is visually harmonious.
Pick a flat weave rug! This is a practical choice, spills can happen, and the ability to pull a chair back quickly is, therefore, important.
Another practical tip is avoiding light-coloured rugs in this space. Any pale hue is going to show dirt and spots sooner, than darker, richer, colours. If you happen to choose a rug with lots of patterns even better! Just make sure that it completely blends with the rest of your dining room.
If you are decorating your dining room from scratch you can even use the rug you choose as the element with which you set the tone for the room. A great tip is using the lightest, or background colour from the rug as the colour of your dining room.
In terms of fabrics, pure natural fibres like cotton and wool are the easiest when it comes to cleaning time, while synthetic blends are the most difficult. The exception is indoor-outdoor and stain-resistant rugs that are made to withstand scrubbing.
