7 Dining Rooms to Help Decide: Rug vs No Rug
I love the simplicity of this room. A rug here would take away from the minimalistic feeling and distract from the oversized frame. I can just imagine having a meal on this walnut table. Less really is more. The no-rug look here elevates the elegance of this dining room. From the giant canvas painting to the golden chandeliers, adding another big accessory in this area would crowd the room. The sleekness of this dining room design is what makes it special.
On the other hand, I love how cozy the rug makes this room. A similar walnut table looks very different with a faded rug. I especially love the long buffet and mirror above to tie in this great dining room. The rug and walls are similar in color and they balance each other out. That makes the dining table and long buffet stand out and makes them the center of attention in the dining room.
This dining room is a serious inspiration. Who knew a striped rug could work in a dining room? I love the way the black and white tie in with the leather chairs. This is such a great, simplistic meets country look. The black stripes on the carpet balances out the whites in the room. It makes the dining table the centerpiece of the room as it is the only item that is a somewhat different color from the black-white theme going on.
I need this much natural light in my dining room. Love the black chairs and reclaimed wooden table. With the oversized light fixture, banana leaf plant, buffet and artwork, a rug in this dining room would take away rather than add. The sleek, empty flooring puts emphasis on the other decorations in the dining room. Each item gets its own time to shine and a rug in this case would just crowd the area and you wouldn’t even know where to look!
This wall puts white walls to shame. And this rug just feels so cozy. I can just imagine Thanksgiving dinner here. Especially with these chairs. The browns in the rug and dining table and chairs blend super well together. It creates a contrast between the grey/blue walls and each section of the dining room gets its own moment. The golden spikey chandelier also creates some balance between the rug and the upper area of the room.
But every time I think I’ve decided on a dining room with a rug, I see how simple and perfect the no-rug look can be. I love how long this dining room table is. There might just be five chairs, but this table can fit many more. It makes for a great dinner party setting and the sleek, no-rug floors will definitely come in handy if there ever is a spill. The flowers on the table and the back table create a very cozy and friendly environment around the dining table.
The view isn’t the only great thing about this room. I seriously want these chairs in my life. They create such a great balance with the dining table. This dining room wouldn’t be complete without that rug. It would feel too empty without it. The minimalistic decor in the room needs a centerpiece, and the rug is it.
