What is the right size rug for a dining room?


The best size rug for a dining room depends on the size of the table that will be sitting on top of it. The most important part is to be sure that all four legs of the chairs stay on the rug to avoid catching the edge when being moved in and out. This means that for a common dining room table which seats six you would want a rug around 8’ x 10’. Keep in mind whether you plan to insert a leaf often to extend the table and whether that should be a factor when determining the right fit for your space.
