A Dining Area Rug & One For The Kitchen

A Stroll Thru Life
With the new wood floors, I wanted a rug to kind of ground the dining area of my living/dining room combination.  Finding just the right size was a little tricky.

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)

This is a small area, but it will work with a 6' x 9' I think.

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.)

 I think this fights with the cowhide rug.  I don't like that idea.

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.

 One out of two isn't bad.  This one is the Safavieh Courtyard Black/ Bone Indoor Outdoor Rug from Overstock. 

I am happy with the dining area left  with no rug for now. What do you think?

Be sure to get all your projects lined up for Inspire Me Tuesday.  Party goes live Monday afternoon at 3 PM CMT.  Can't wait to see you there.
