A standard 4 feet by 6 feet rug placed beneath the dining table effectively separates the dining and living areas. If the apartment has an open plan or a larger area, the size of the rug can be increased to 6 feet by 9 feet or 8 feet by 10 feet.

The rug dimensions chosen for a dining room depend on several factors, such as the size of dining table and the dining space and the shape of the dining table.
