Interior design is the secret ingredient that brings a home together. It's the X factor that turns four simple walls into a domestic masterpiece of beauty and serenity. There is a place for breathtaking design and customization in every room, but the dining room is an especially important location for your design efforts. It's the epicenter of social gathering, and if you focus on no other area of your home, focus on your dining area. It can make all the difference in the world.
What is the centerpiece of your dining room? Why, of course that would be your dining room table. But once you have your table in order, you're going to want to find the perfect dining room area rug to complement the exquisiteness of this centerpiece and create a much-needed focal point for your dining room floor. But the question remains, how do you choose the perfect custom area rug for this important space?
Dining Room Area Rugs – Your Options Defined
Lowe's Home Improvement notes that most dining room tables require an 8-foot-wide area rug. If you want to determine the optimal length and width for your own custom rug, simply measure the length and width of your dining room table, and then add about 4 feet to each side. This simple calculation should give you the ideal dimensions for your rug. This is important because the chairs should never spill off the edge of the rug as people back away from the table.
If you want your area rug to cover the entire dining room, make sure to leave a border along the perimeter, exposing the flooring beneath. The border should be equal in size along all sides of the room. Once you have your size in order, you'll want to give some thought to the material (color is also a key consideration, but that boils down to your personal taste and style, so we won't dwell on that).
Dining rooms are where people gather to break bread and enjoy one another's company over a delicious meal, and as a result, messes tend to occur. These rooms also experience a great deal of foot traffic, so it's important to consider durability as a key factor when choosing your carpet. Sisal area rugs are the most durable of any natural fiber, and they're also colorfast. When choosing a durable fiber, you might also consider wool area rugs and jute area rugs, both of which stand up extremely well to abuse.
