The dining room is often the social hub of the home. A dining room rug offers many benefits - it adds both comfort and style, frames the table, and can also define the room itself, especially in open floor plans. The perfect size rug will be smaller than the diameter of the room, but larger than the dining table. Ideally, when the chairs are pulled out, they should still sit on the rug. A round rug is also a beautiful choice for a round or square dining room table! Low pile rugs are the most popular choice for dining rooms as they are easier to clean and maintain.
