The dilemma remains–rug v no rug in the dining room. We are trying to decide what to do in our houses. Currently, we do not have a rug under the dining table. We always thought it was weird to have food over any soft surface other than hardwood, stone or tile, but lately all these fabulous dining rooms with rugs under the table changing my mind. Dining tables rugs ground the space are, and they’re winning me over.

Let’s decide on a rug or no rug. Here are a bunch of great dining rooms: some with a rug under the table, some without. Which do you think looks better of these fabulous dining rooms? We found a few great ones with rugs under the table and a few without.

7 Dining Rooms to Help Decide: Rug v No Rug

we love the simplicity of this room. A rug here would take away from the minimalistic feeling and distract from the oversized frame. we can just imagine having a meal on this walnut table. Less really is more.

On the other hand, We love how cozy the rug makes this room. A similar walnut table looks very different from a faded rug. We especially love the long buffet and mirror above to tie in this great dining room.

This dining room is a serious inspiration. Who knew a striped rug could work in a dining room? We love the way the black and white tie in with the leather chairs. This is such a great, simplistic meets country look.

We 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.

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.

But every time we think we’ve decided on a dining room with a rug, We see how simple and perfect without rugs they can look. We love how long this dining room table is. There might just be five chairs, but this table can fit many more.

The view isn’t the only great thing about this room. We seriously want these chairs in our life. This dining room wouldn’t be complete without that rug.
