A TIME FOR DINING
As the space where families and friends gather together over a shared meal, the dining room can be considered the heart of the home. Below, we share our tried and tested tips to help you find a rug that is pleasing to the eye yet hardy enough to handle your hospitality.


PRACTICAL MAKES PERFECT
Dining room rugs perform double duty, protecting your floors from scuff marks and scratches. Accidents are inevitable when you're eating and drinking. We have a selection of family friendly rugs that are easy to clean and retain their good looks.


MIRROR THE SHAPE OF YOUR TABLE
A rug can define boundaries in open plan living, or artistically frame a formal dining room. Ensure that the rug is in proportion to the furniture – for example, a round rug will better accentuate a round table.
We recommend a minimum of 60cm excess all around so that when chairs are pulled away from the table, the back legs still sit on the rug.

 


BOOK A DISTANT CONSULTATION
We're here to help you find the perfect rug for your space, style and budget with our complimentary Distant Consultation. Send us an email to start planning your space.
Our In-Home Consultations will resume again when Auckland is at Level 2
