Make a statement in any room with an 8x10 rug! These rugs are popular because of their "not too big, not too small"? size and proportion. They can be used in a living room, dining room, bedroom, or entryway. They come in a variety of materials, thicknesses, and styles so you're sure to find the perfect 8x10 rug for your space.
Room By Room
In the living room: this is the place where friends and family gather to relax. Whether simply chatting, watching a movie, or playing games, you'll want this room to be comfortable and inviting!
Wool, cotton, or synthetic fiber rugs are soft and durable. They're easy to clean, making spills, stains, and dirt no big deal.
In the dining room: a well placed rug adds style and protection to your flooring. An 8x10 area rug fits under medium to small sized tables.
Choosing a flat weave or low pile rug is especially important in this room. Chairs need to be able to scoot back and forth over the rug without catching. You'll also want your rug to have plenty of space behind the chairs so diners can move without catching the edge of the rug--we recommend at least 24 inches.
The dining room is prone to spills. A low pile, easy to clean fiber such as a flat weave in wool or cotton are great choices. A low pile synthetic rug is also a good option.
In the bedroom: a large rug framing the bed in any bedroom gives a cozy place for your feet to land in the morning.
Place an 8'x10' rug under two thirds of a double/full or queen sized bed, just past where the night stands stop.
Softness is the top priority in a bedroom rug. Traffic in this space is low so silk, cotton, or synthetic fibers such as nylon or chenille work great. Wool is also a good choice.
In the entryway: a large entryway is a great place for an 8x10 rug.
You can place the rug next to the front door or centered under the chandelier. If you place the rug next to the front door, be sure to choose a rug that is less than ½"? thick so that the door can open without catching.
Wool and synthetic rugs are a great choice for the entryway because they are durable, they repel water and dirt and they are soft and cushy.
Jute and Sisal rugs are extra durable. These rugs absorb moisture and are easy to clean, making them an excellent option for the entryway.
