Kitchen Island Carts Once you've determined the appropriate shape and size for your table, you may choose to help expand define your dining area with a rug. Choose any style rug to enhance your room's d?cor and visually set apart your dining space from the others of your house. How big is the rug depends upon how big is your dining table. There must be a minimum two-foot perimeter surrounding the edge of the table for rugs, allowing for use of chairs and visual cohesion.
If you're buying chairs to match a table at home gauge the distance from the ground to the table apron to calculate in case a chair will fit. (The table apron is a rail that runs between the legs to support the table top.) If you're buying a table to match chairs in your home, measure from the ground to the seat of the chair and add eight inches to determine how much space you need under the apron. This can ensure a person sitting in the chair can in fact get their legs under the table. Chairs with arms are another consideration. If you have a good space, then you will likely want the arm chair to tuck all the way under the table, therefore you will want to be sure that the arm will fit under the apron, but be careful. If the chair arms regularly speak to the table apron, the finish may be marred. When contemplating arm chairs, also look at the distance between the table legs and the length between the arms of the chair to ensure they will fit together easily.
