Need help on a dinning room rug size (round)
October 18, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Looking to get a rug for my dinning room table which has a circumference of 59". How big should a round rug under the table be? Room is 16'8" x 15'11". Someone mentioned at least three feet more than the table. Is this correct?

Did you mean circumference or diameter.......? What is the diameter of your table?
If the circumference is 59" then the diameter would be 59 divided by 3.14 (pi) = 18.78"
So I think that your table is probably 59" in diameter, especially since your room is so large.

So, if your table is 59" in diameter you would want a round rug of approximately 12'' .........
Your room is large so this would work well. There would be an area of approximately 20" to just over 2 feet clear of rug around the edges of the room.
