Table Runner FAQs

How to Place A Table Runner?

The traditional, long dining table runner is placed lengthwise and centred across a table, covering one-third of the surface area. It is usually long enough to leave some material hanging over the ends of your table - much like a tablecloth would. Short table runners are equally as popular but are generally better suited to a relaxed table setting.

As well as lengthways, some hosts might like to use slightly narrower and shorter table runners placed across the width of the table, in front of each chair as placemats, for easily separating place settings. Far from being limited to use on long, rectangular dining tables, the range of lengths available in dining table runners means they can be used to equally impressive effect on round, oval and square tables too.

What size table runner do I need?

To decide what size table runner to get, measure the length of your table first. You can then choose a table runner that is slightly shorter than your table, or a longer table runner for an overhanging look.

What are the best table runner styles?

Depending on your home decor and dining table theme, there are many table runner styles to match. Popular table runners include:

  • Lace table runners: Bring a sense of elegance and vintage style to your dining table with a lace or lace trimmed table runner.
  • Hessian and jute table runners: If you love texture and natural colour tones, a jute table runner is the perfect addition for an earthy vibe.
  • Sherpa table runners: Effortlessly blends comfort and style, creating an inviting ambiance for your dining experience
  • Festive table runners: Add festive cheer to your table with a vibrant red table runner or a more subtle festive table runner to suit your aesthetic.

What to pair with my table runner?

You can choose coordinating table cloth, cloth napkins, table placemats and napkin rings to pair with your table runner. Additionally, choose matching dinnerware sets and elegant drinkware to match. You can even layer a wider table runner with a narrow table runner for a classy layered look!
