Rug Size Guides
Designing your dining room requires getting both the right look while fine-tuning its function. How you place the rug has to work with the size of your table, your chairs, and the size of your room. With a few important variables, we created this guide to you help you size your rug.
Your dining room rug creates a frame for your dining space, making the area feel welcoming for guests and family dinners. The average dining room is around 14' x 16', and the average dining room rug size is 9' x 12'.
However, the shape and size of your dining table, and the dimensions of your dining room, might call for something different. For example, if you have a round dining room table, you'll want a round rug, and a square rug is often best for a square table.
Sizes of rugs for a dining table and chair set also depend on the dimensions of your furniture. Ideally, you don't want the chair legs falling off the rug when guests scoot their chairs back to stand up.
We've broken down the best approach to picking a size for dining room rugs in any space in this guide. Ready to get started?
The two things you'll need to consider when finding the proper rug size for dining room decor include the dimensions of the dining table and the dining room:
Start by measuring your dining room table and adding 4' to each dimension. For example, if you need the area rug size under round dining tables, add 4' to the diameter of the rug. Or, if the table is rectangular, add 4' to the width and the length.
Then, check the results against the room size to ensure the rug is at least 2' smaller on each dimension – this keeps the rug 12" away from the wall at all points.
Another approach is to find the largest rug you can fit in the room and pick the table size accordingly. For example, if your room is 10' x 12', you could fit an 8' x 10' rug in the space. From there, you'll decide what size table to use for an 8' x 10' rug by subtracting 4' from each dimension, which leaves you with a dining table that's 4' x 6' or smaller.
When your dining room isn't large enough to hold the proper rug size, wall-to-wall protection with a vinyl floor mat is a great option. Vinyl floor mats come in various styles and colors, and they're incredibly durable.
Use vinyl floor mats to protect your dining room floor from the wear and tear of moving dining chairs in and out. This is ideal if you can't fit the rug you'd need or if your dining room sees a lot of spills and messes.
