While a dining room without a dining table is, well, just a room, you still need a grounding anchor to pull the whole space together. Large area rugs offer protection to hardwood floors, a soft touch underfoot, and an opportunity to bring color and shape to your space. Abstract rugs offer geometric appeal with the option to go neutral or color-filled to best fit your space. Want to take a walk on the wild side? Add a hint of character to your dining space with a funky animal print rug, to bring a fun, yet elevated look to your dining space. As most dining rooms are not high-traffic areas, when it comes to construction, opt for hand-tufted or hand-loomed rugs as they are a high-quality, high-style option, producing a greater pile height, resulting in a luxurious feel down below.
