Choosing the Right Size
Confused about the right size of area rug for your dining room? Read our guide to choosing the right rug size. Here’s a quick summary for common dining room sizes!
- Round Rugs: Round area rugs pair naturally with round dining tables. Look for round area rugs that are 8' or larger in diameter to accommodate 4–6 seat dining tables.
- 5x7 and 5x8 Rugs: These work well in smaller dining rooms and breakfast nooks when paired with small tables, whether they’re two-seat café style tables or higher bar tables.
- 8x10 Rugs: 8x10 rugs are the perfect choice for 4–6 seat dining tables, offering enough room to make sure all chairs rest on the rug, even when pushed back.
- 9x12 Rugs and Oversize Rugs: If you have a larger dining table for hosting dinner parties, we’ve got you covered with our oversized rugs. Our 12x18 rugs can fit dining tables that seat 14 people or more! When choosing the size you need, keep in mind that area rugs for dining tables should extend 18” beyond the table (and extensions) on either side to accommodate pulled back chairs.
