There are polar opinions on putting a rug in the dining room. You either love it or you don’t. Here are some pros and cons of adding a rug in the dining area.
Like with any space, rugs can add warmth, dimension, and sound dampening properties to a dining room.
Warmth – Everything feels extra cozy when there is a rug in the room.
Dimension – Placing a rug under your dining table will help it feel more integrated with the room and can make the space feel more grounded.
Sound Dampening – Rugs can help reduce noise, especially if you have tile or stone in your dining room.
Families with young children may not want a rug in their dining space, because cleanup will be a bit more of a challenge if/when spills occur.
Rug size – Avoid using a rug that is too small making it difficult to move chairs in and out.
