A dining room rug underneath your table is a great idea to add warmth and interest, while also protecting your floor from stains and scratches. Popular options for dining room rugs that you’ll see in this collection include vintage, faded Persian rugs with intricate and detailed designs. This style of rug can be found in a range of colors and patterns, to match any space. In addition, the detailed pattern can help hide small spills and stains. Nowadays however, many stylish rugs can be found in washable versions.

Another popular option is rugs woven from natural fibers, including jute or wool. These rugs bring a rustic and organic element, which can complement a farmhouse dining room look. They are also very durable and able to withstand heavy foot traffic.

Beyond the color and pattern of your rug, consider the size of your dining table set. Your rug should comfortably extend beyond pulled out dining chairs, but not be so large that it overwhelms the room. If your rug is too small for your dining set, consider layering it with another, larger rug.
