Be it Thanksgiving or Christmas, going with a subtle or neutral table runner will work year-round as table decor. Farmhouse style can be a good decor option to use to create a subtle tablescape. A table runner acts as a unifying piece by bringing the different decor pieces together as a cohesive ‘piece of artwork’. Pair it with matching placemats to create the foundation for a welcoming dining experience. As such, choosing the right starting piece, or background will make the design of your table setting way easier. Think of it as the canvas to that artwork.
The use of table runners provides an inexpensive year-round decorating option. Use a single table runner along the dining table length to instantly enhance the look of your dining table. Moreso, feel free to experiment with different types of table runners based on the occasion. They come in different sizes, colors, and material textures. Two different table runners can sometimes be set to crisscross each other at the center with a centerpiece in the middle. In addition to the dining room table, use the runner to style your entryway, foyer, console, or coffee table surfaces while still showing off the furniture.
For better visual effect, the length of the table runner is an important consideration. Create an elegant decor by extending the table runner ends by approximately 6 to 10 inches on each end of the table. Choose a table runner between 84 inches and 92 inches in length to decorate a 72-inch long table.
Here is a curated list of farmhouse style table runners that can be bought online via Amazon. They are inexpensive and are of good, if not excellent quality. They were, in part, chosen based on positive existing customer reviews.
