Buying Guides

How to choose area rugs for dining room?

Among the countless area rugs on Amazon, finding a suitable rug to put under the dining table is not easy. There are area rugs only suited to the living room, there are rugs right for under bedding. Then, area rugs underneath dining table also have their own principles.

Dining Table Size & Rug Size 

Seating No Shared Area Minimum Size Ideal Size Rug Size
2 2′ x 2’6″ 2′ x 3′ N/A 5’2″ x 7’2″
4 4′ x 2’6″ 4′ x 3′ 5′ x 4’6″ 6’5″ x 9’5″
6 6′ x 2’6″ 6’6″ x 3′ 8′ x 4’6″ 8′ x 10′
8 8′ x 2’6″ 8’6″ x 3′ 10’6″ x 4’6″ 9′ x 12′
10 10′ x 2’6″ 10’6″ x 3′ 11’6″ x 4’6″ 10′ x 14′
12 12′ x 2’6″ 10’6″ x 4′ 11’6 x 5′

This can be considered as standard dimensions to choose an area rug for the dining table. With that size, the seats will be located entirely inside the area rug. 

Depending on the number of family members, the dining table set may have 6 or 8 seats. Therefore, in the TOP PICKs, we only offer 2 sizes 8 ‘x 10’ and 9 ‘x 12’ respectively for these 2 types of dining tables.

If you have more space in your large dining room, you can choose a slightly larger rug.

Some families use a 4-seater dining table or round table. You also be able to choose the appropriate size. For a 4-seater dining table, a square rug would be very neat. As for the round dining table, a circular rug or even a square one placed in the diamond shape will be very eye-catching.

Patterns and colors

There is a fact that the rug has many intricate patterns that are only suitable when it is placed not on the floor. A complicated patterned area rug when placed under the dining table will be very “wasted” because you can not admire all the patterns on it. Imagine a guest coming for a meal, he has to look tilted to figure out how your area rug patterns look like under your table. Then you will have to explain to him and that makes no senses. For that reason, we suggest using only the simple patterned or monochrome area rugs. 

Area rugs are also furniture, so the ability to harmonize with other furniture, especially the floor, is an important thing. We avoided white and bright hues rugs. Those seem inconsistent with dining space. Moreover, bright and white colors will show more noticeable dirt than dark colors. Nobody wants to see the stains on the dining room carpet.

Materials

Dining table area is an area where greasy dusts are easily trapped from food falling onto the area rug. Unlike other high traffic areas where rugs can get inorganic dirts. The area rugs in the dining room are often covered with organic stains. 

Differ from inorganic stains can be easily cleaned by vacuuming or wet rags. When organic stains are there, it is better to wash the rug. If only wiped with a cloth, the stains cannot be removed. They can lead ants and other insects to the area rug.

Pile height

Visualize an area rug placed under the dining table where not much stepping but many of chair movements. Consequently, a short pile rug is the most appropriate one. The long pile rugs are more suited to the living rooms and bedrooms where children and pets often play.
