6 April 2015

Things to keep in mind before decorating your table with mats and runners

Table decoration is an art in itself.  An incredibly decorated table is all you need to make your function fantastic.  When it comes to table decoration, table mats and table runners are the best things to decorate the tables with. There cannot be anything better qualified to décor your tables. No home décor furnishing is good until it has taken full advantage of table décor.

Like any other home décor activity, taking caring of certain important factors can make the task easy and walk in the park than otherwise.

Following are a list of things that you can take care of all your worries while decorating your tables with mats and runners.

Match them with the rest of the room: People often forget this simple room when it comes to table décor that everymat and the table runner that you purchase have to match the color and theme of the room. In order to avoid this, one has to understand the theme of the setting and the color patterns that would go well with theme and then choose the mats and runners accordingly. If you love to go Indian, there are numerous options to find and buy table runners in India without any worry in any of the home furnishing stores.

Table Runners in India

Be choosy about the material that you purchase: Before visiting any of the home furnishing stores, make sure that you know what type of material you want to buy a runner or a table mat. Runners normally come in silk and polyester. Polyester is tend to be cheaper than silk, while silk is much superior than polyester.  Depending upon your budget you can choose between these and most people cannot tell the difference between a polyester runner and a silk one. There are also many handmade quilted runners online and in home furnishing stores. If you want to go traditional, these are a good choice as well.

Do your homework and take measurements: Doing your homework when it comes to home décor furnishing is very important. It can not only save you a lot of your money, it can save time and effort as well. So have clear measurements of the tables before you make the purchase. Taking clear measurements in not only good to save money but a perfectly fit runner can also make the table look much better. If you are planning to combine table cloth and a runner, make sure that the edges meet or the entire arrangement can look really sloppy. Also it is important to have the runners and mats long enough to dangle at the edges of the table.

Make room for a centerpiece:  If you have not considered incorporating a centerpiece onto your table decoration, it is a great idea to make good use of. Having a centerpiece can make the table look extremely attractive and elegant. The rich look a centerpiece can bring to the entire table decoration is incredible. While doing so, you have to take care of the color of the centerpiece as it must only complement the overall look of the table decoration and not attract the entire emphasis onto it.


Do not overdo the decoration: It is often a mistake that people commit especially while decorating tables for any occasion. Though plenty of table runner and table clothes are available to make the table a perfect place to dine, one has to be extra careful not to spoil the entire fun.  Table clothes can come as modern and classic, subtle and expressive and thematic and non-thematic styles. One has to have a clear understanding of what type of style he/she must bring to the occasion depending upon the occasion.Bring a formal style to a wedding party or birthday party may not fare well with the tone of the occasion. So depending upon the occasion the decoration of the table using runners and table clothes must change.

While there may not be much to decorate tables with great runners and mats in the first look, the subtle art of table decoration is sometimes the key to the aesthetical feel of any function that one can probably think of. A well decorated table does have what it takes to be an interesting decorating item.
