Burlap table runners are not "one-size-fits-all". Therefore when you are thinking of buying one for your dining table to be used as decoration, you must be aware of the dimensions of your table. Choosing the perfect size will enchance the look of your table in a subtle but distinct way. Burlap table runners are much in vogue in the rustic themed weddings.

So what size should I order?

Choose the burlap runner that has a width which is about 1/3rd the width of your table (although 14" works for most tables), and runs along the length of your table with an overhang of approximately 6 to 10 inches past the table on either end. Some people prefer an overhang that spans to the ground. This is a matter of personal preference.

Runners do not necessarily have to be used on rectangular tables alone. They create just as much visual appeal on round tables as rectangular tables. The same measurement rules apply, and the runner should be about one-third the width and hang 6 inches over the side.

In case, you want to use the burlap runner while dining, you may choose the one which fits along with your dining plates without overlapping with each other. Don’t worry too much if your burlap fabric came out too long or short. The space on each side, however, should be the same, and if hanging then the length should be the same on each side.  You may attach a tassel at both ends to give it a long look and for making it look short , you may bring it together and tie a bow or a thread at both ends giving it an elegant look.
