  1. If the size of the room is sufficient for a decent size rug anyway, then, I would put one. But not solely for the purpose of having the table on a rug. You’ll probably need a 5′x8′ size at least to pull off a look that makes sense. Otherwise, I’d skip the rug altogether, or choose one more room size like 8′x10″ where your forming a grouping and the rug is the anchor.

  2. I would recommend you put a larger rug (at least 8×10 ft) under the entire seating area group of furniture rather than just under the coffee table which might look odd.

  3. I would not necessarily put a rug under me coffee table should I have one. I think I would likely place the rug between the coffee table & me couch where I could enjoy the softness of the rug & use the rug to massage me feet, keep them warm & use the rug’s pile to remove miniscule debris off me feet. Of course, part of the rug could be under the coffee table to keep the rug & the table in place.
    That said, I would prefer placing me rug in the front of the main entrance door, or to the side of it where I would leave me shoes before cleaning them & placing them in their shoes bin.
    You might want to consider the fact that if you had a carpet then the coffee table would be on top of the carpet, so having your rug under the coffee table would not be that unusual.
    Therefore, as is the case any-way, the choice is strictly up to you & what you prefer. Certainly, if you have a 10′ by 12′ Persian Rug, as I do, you may not have a choice. I have no coffee table, so I can really only speculate, but a nice coffee table setting on top of my rug wouldn’t hurt the rug & could enhance the appearance & mood of the main room, or what we [the US] call the Living Room.

  4. I hate, despise coffee tables- (and I might add sun roofs in cars). I’ve had each- and never again! Walk into your LR- the greatest mess- unless you’ve got small kids and/or wild animals will be found on your coffee table. A bowl of something from late last night-god forbid a full ashtray. A glass of whatever that the tail of your dog has knocked over in greeting you.
    If they’re glass- you are constantly cleaning them carefully- if you have a klutz in your home- and in that case it would likely be me- shins will be bruised and curses often. For years I thought it was just me- well, maybe I have some narcissistic traits- until to reply to this I just decided to do a little research. I am not the only one who detests them! Here is an article that is a far better answer. Coffee Tables: 5 Reasons I’ll Never Own One
    I am a rug/floor maniac- and I have them on walls, floors- just about all over- but their beauty will never be at risk from a coffee table! As for sun roofs- I don’t know about you- but almost every time I looked up through one of those- I saw nothing but bird poop, a clear message that the car needed washing- and because in my last one- a Saab- I never really managed to close the thing fully- thus my friend and I had soap suds on our faces as we were automatically rolled along the vast machines!

  5. The carpet has vibrant patterns and colors, so when it is laid indoors, it creates an aesthetically pleasing pattern with the furniture, home decor, and other ornamental items. This can help people feel better mentally. Many people today prefer to use rugs to decorate a space because they are available in a wide range of shapes, colors, and patterns and have various aesthetics in the bedroom. The carpet is also portable. You can actually choose a carpet you like to decorate and get wonderful results if you want to change the interior style! On the coffee table, items like teapots, cups, snacks, fruits, and other things are typically placed. In particular, the majority of teacups are constructed of glass or ceramic. which, when dropped to the ground, is readily damaged. The teacup won’t get broken on the floor if there is a rug under the coffee table. On the sofa are those who, sometimes, prefer not to wear slippers. It wouldn’t be as chilly if they stepped immediately on the carpet. They’ll feel more at ease if they sit around the coffee table and eat snacks while standing on the rug. Numerous specks of dust are produced inside on a regular basis, and many of them are in the air where they might be inhaled by people. If a carpet is placed on the coffee table in the living room, the wool can absorb some of the dust to a certain level, lowering the amount of dust directly in the air and the likelihood that it will be absorbed by humans.So, it’s up to personal preference

  6. If you want a rug under your coffee table, you should put one there. If you don’t want a rug under your coffee table, you shouldn’t. This is an issue of personal preference, not a matter of right and wrong, and it’s easily changed if you decide you’d rather have it the other way.

  7. Yes, but not for the reason you think.
    If you put the carpet under the table, then there is a much better chance your dog will choose to sleep on the carpet under the table instead of beside the table. You will trip over the dog less often, and both you and the dog will be happier.

  8. Depends on what other floor coverings you have. If it is top quality carpet a £75/sq. m. and up, a rug under the coffee table is pretty essential to catch any spillages of coffee/tea/red wine. Rugs are relatively cheap!
    If, it is a polished floor such as tiles or marble I would make sure any rug will not slide on the surface. After all you do not want your coffee table shooting across the room spreading its contents everywhere, because someone brushed against it a little carelessly!

  9. Yes. The right place for a rug in a living room is under your rug.
    The rug should be placed in the middle space between your sofa and chairs.
    If you don’t use a rug, it will look kind of bare. A rug will give you not only a comfortable surface, bur beautiful patterns and visual texture. You can see and enjoy that patterns and designs behind the table, or even through the glass top of the table, in the case of a Barcelona Table.

  10. It is ideal to place a rug under the coffee table which is in the living room area and in the center of sofas so as to keep your feet warm and provide a warm touch to the room.

  12. This is one of those themes that there are blended sentiments on. A few groups say in no way, shape or form and that your rug ought to be sufficiently enormous to put at any rate the two front legs of your couch on it. Yet, there are likewise a lot of extraordinary plan models where the architect has set a smaller rug in a front room course of action, and just the coffee lays on it. So truly, it’s dependent upon you and your room’s plan.
    Rugs have magic powers. Beside breathing important warmth and plainness into any room, relaxing even the most clean climate, they likewise have the ability to integrate a room and shading plan, infuse shading into a generally dull room, assist tone with bringing down a generally jumbled space, can be utilized to isolate huge spaces into cozier regions.
    When it comes to living room rugs, less is certainly NOT more. Smaller rugs will appear cluttered and make a room look smaller, whereas larger rugs will make the room appear more streamlined and spacious. Place the carpet in the focal point of the living room under your coffee table and spot the front legs of your couch and armchairs on the floor covering too with the goal that the mat vanishes under the furnishings, and the furniture outlines the region. This makes for a cleaner, more tasteful appearance.

  13. As long as you don’t have any pet issues, a rug can do wonders under a coffee table in a living room.
    It add different textures to experience walking in the room, along with color variations. It can also help with echoes and reducing sound reverberations from otherwise hardscape floors.

  14. You can if you want to. Be sure the rug is large enough to have some space around it. Our oval coffee table sits on the middle of the rug. It looks good that way.

  15. I think it all depends mainly on the type of decorating style you’ve chosen. It’s not always convenient to add a rug under a coffee table. It depends on the coffee table model, the color scheme, the textures you want to include, the rug’s size, the dimensions of the space, and the type of activities that normally take place there, considering that some are more fragile than others. In general terms, it’s usually very convenient, and many times an area rug is a valid enough hit to add it. In my living room, I have a Tulip table that I bought at Manhattan Home Design and, so far, I haven’t added a rug underneath it, mostly because I’ve been all this time, since I got it, trying to decide which is the most convenient type of rug for my space. I know that when I find it, I’ll immediately know that it’s the type of rug compatible with its colors, shapes, and textures, but so far, I haven’t taken the task of looking for it too seriously either.

  16. If you want a nice look to the whole room then yes put a rug under the coffee table, but make sure the edges of of the furniture around the coffee table touch or overlap the rug otherwise the coffee table and rug will look like a little island in the middle!
