Are you looking for the best dining room rug ideas from real people just like you? We've collected inspiration from our customers to show you exactly what the right rug can do for your dining space.
The age-old question of whether you should put a rug under your dining table is a heated debate - in fact, we've got a whole blog on it! - but for now let's assume that, yes, you want a rug in your dining space. But you're a little stuck on the how, why and what you can achieve with your rug. We've collected a bunch of images our customers have tagged us in and grouped them into a few categories to help out:
Before we get down to it, are you looking to buy a rug?
A rug can really tie the whole room together; the final finishing touch that roots the table and chairs within the room. A rug can also add some warmth underfoot if you've got wood, laminate or lino. Both of these examples show rugs that, while patterned, seamlessly blend into the floor. You almost don't notice them, and that's the point!
Looking for a rug like this? Check out our Toscana Moroccan Lattice Two-Tone Rug in Grey and Cream

Both of the following examples have rugs with a more noticeable texture - shaggy rugs are deliciously snuggly underfoot! But notice that, while these rugs do stand out a bit more than those above, they still blend in with the overall colour palette of the room and tables.

These next examples take things up a notch by creating contrast through texture and shades with the rest of the room. These rugs do still match the colour palette of the wider room.
This is our Atlanta white high gloss and chrome dining table with 4 Cappuccino Beige faux leather Murano chairs. This rug is very like our Fantasy Geometric Moroccan Trellis Rug in Light Grey and Cream rug, too!
Here's our popular Leonardo rectangular glass and gold metal dining table, with navy velvet chairs just like our new navy Pesaro's!
Rugs are a great way to break up an open plan kitchen-diner or living room-diner and designate specific areas for different things. This can help create a sense of order and place in a larger open room, too!
Shop our white high gloss Palma pedestal table with grey velvet Pesaro's, and the rugs are just like our Toscana Moroccan Lattice Two-Tone Rug in Grey and Cream.
Now, so far we've gone hard on the neutral shades of greys and whites... but rugs come in all colours (we've got a lot of coloured rugs too!). These last 4 examples have gone for statement coloured and patterned rugs that become a focal point for the room, and we love 'em!
To rug, or not to rug? Whether you should put a rug under a dining table is an age-old question with experts weighing in on all sides of the debate, but what’s the honest low-down on this? We take a look at the pros and cons...
