A Persian rug in the dining room will instantly uplift the look of the room, adding beauty and elegance to an otherwise functional space.
With the rug as a focal point in your dining room, you don’t need to add any other accessories to the room.

3 Most Important Tips
Keep these three tips in mind when looking for a Persian rug for your dining room. Choose a rug with an elaborate border and corners as those are the only portions of the rug that will be visible. The rest of the rug will be under the table.
Choose a darker colored rug that will not show spills and stains so easily.
Pull all chairs out when measuring the size of rug to buy. This will ensure that all four chair legs sit firmly on the rug. If the rug is too small the hind chair legs will be off the rug, and will be wobbly to sit on resulting in an uncomfortable dining experience.
