This isn't a very large space and is just your typical builder basic floor plan of living/dining all in one room. The dining area looks like a sea of brown, so I think I need a rug to help break things up a little.
This is the space I am working with. As you can see here, the doorway to the kitchen/family room area is on the left, so I need to stay within certain boundaries here. I want the chairs around the table to be on the rug. That meant that a 5' x 8' was too small - I needed a 6' x 9'.
That cut down my choices quite a bit unless I wanted to go custom. I really just wanted something simple and non-descript so it didn't compete with the cowhide rug. I decided the best choice would be a sisal rug - easy and simple, plus there were several to choose from in 6' x 9'.
To make sure I got the right size rug, I moved all the furniture out and measured again. (I know, it seems like we've done nothing but move furniture lately)
Well, the rug came today and I am not sure this is the look I am going for. (Hubby is not home, so I couldn't get the table back in place.)
Not at all the look I am going for, so I think this one goes back. I like the room better with just the cowhide, so it will stay that way for now.
This room isn't all that big, so I don't think chopping it up with rugs will help.
I did find one rug that I really like and it is an indoor-outdoor rug for the kitchen. I love that it is plaid and has black and tan in it.
I am happy with the dining area left with no rug for now. What do you think?
