What Size Rug Goes Under A 48 Round Table

Like any home project, there are many factors to consider when styling round or circle rugs. The first and most basic is whether a round rug suits your space and your design aesthetic. The rest is nuts and bolts: your furniture layout, how much of the floor space you want the rug to cover, where and how to center it. Taking the time to review your layout(s) and design goals will help you sort this out. Here are a few dos and don’ts when styling your round area rug.

Ideally, a 48″ table should be placed on an 8′ or 9′ round area rug, providing 24″ behind each chair so guests can slide in and out easily. Round tables pair well with round or square area rugs, so an 8′ x 8′ or 9′ x 9′ square rug would also work.

DO: Use the round rug to highlight a section of your living room.

If your living room is an open plan or large enough to accommodate an additional furniture grouping, a round rug can help define the space, creating a vignette or a focal point. Place your round rug under the furniture that you want to draw attention to.

A 10-seater is 4’-6”x10’ and goes really well with a 10’x14’ rug. This statement dining table is perfect for oversized dining rooms that are great for hosting dinner parties and elaborate luncheons.

DON’T: Limit yourself to round decors.

A round table centered on a round rug is visually balanced, but a round rug works even if your table is square. Just make sure the round rug is large enough so that the shapes don’t clash. Again, at least 30 inches all around the table is preferred, but a larger round rug would benefit the two shapes playing off of each other.

If you’re placing a round rug under your dining table, a good rule of thumb is to choose a rug that is 30 inches larger all around your table. You’ll want to make sure that your chairs don’t get tripped up on the rug. Chairs should move freely to and from the table.
