What size rug?
Caz Gee
March 29, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We've just purchased a new table sized 2.4m length by 1.2m width (7.8ftx3.9 ft, apparently).

We want to place it on a rug, partly to protect the laminate flooring beneath it. What size should I be looking for? I think we may have to have a custom sized rug made. I'd appreciate any advice. (Will try to find a pic of the table and the space)
Thanks, Caz from Oz

This is the space.. It is currently a display home so the furniture will be going. Obviously it is hard to tell with the fish eye lens but it will be in the rear end of the room where the smaller table currently is. The table that is there is about 1.5 m, so our table is about half as big again.

We find that the best size is 1.5 to 2 feet beyond the table. That way the dining chairs don't get hooked up on the rug when people pull chairs in and out. So maybe a 6x10 or a little under. This size is not too difficult to find in the handmade rug world. I would be happy to post some options in that size frame. What sort of style are you going for? Traditional? Contemporary? Transitional?

Thanks for that, I think I have been looking for one a bit larger than that, maybe 8x10 ( not sure because we work in metric) . Haven't yet decided on a style. We will have to have two rugs in the space, one under the table and one in the lounge area (open plan living/ dining), so I was thinking plain and neutral for under the table. Thanks for the offer to provide links but since I am in Australia, probably not relevant
