Browse RC Willey’s 8x10 Rug Collection
The 8x10 rug is a versatile staple in home decor, offering both functionality and a splash of style. Given its generous dimensions, it's frequently chosen for living rooms, where it can comfortably encompass key furniture pieces, such as sofas, coffee tables, and chairs. Typically, designers advise placing the front legs of sofas and chairs on the rug, creating a cohesive and inviting zone.
In dining rooms, an 8x10 rug can sit under a dining table and chairs, ensuring diners have a soft underfoot even when chairs are pulled out.
Beyond mere placement, the colors and patterns of the rug play a crucial role in room aesthetics. A vibrant, patterned 8x10 rug can become a focal point, drawing attention and anchoring a space. Whether it's a bold geometric design, a soft floral pattern, or a rich, solid color, the rug has the power to dictate the mood of a room, making it an essential tool in the hands of anyone looking to craft a particular ambiance or highlight a specific area of their home.
Frequently Asked Questions about 8x10 Rugs
Is an 8x10 rug the same size as a queen bed?
An 8x10 rug is larger than a queen-sized bed. The standard dimensions for a queen bed are 60 inches wide by 80 inches long (5 feet by 6.67 feet). In comparison, an 8x10 rug is 8 feet wide by 10 feet long.
So, while an 8x10 rug is broader and longer than a queen bed, they are often used in bedroom settings with a queen bed to provide ample rug space on either side and at the foot of the bed. This arrangement allows for a balanced and luxurious look, with the rug extending beyond the bed's boundaries.
Should I use a rug pad underneath an 8x10 rug?
Totally up to you! A rug pad can provide cushioning, prevent slipping, and protect both the rug and the floor underneath.
Can I layer an 8x10 rug with other rugs?
Absolutely! Layering can add depth and interest. Just ensure there's cohesion in patterns and colors. Maybe try mixing a soft,plush shag rug over a sisal rug for an interesting tactile contrast. Or find rugs with interesting patterns and colors and mix and match those. The fun part of layering is that it's not permanent. Feel free to rearrange, swap out, or adjust until you achieve the desired look.
How do I flatten creases or folds in a new 8x10 rug?
Over time, most creases will settle. You can also reverse-roll the rug or place heavy objects on the creased areas for a few days.
How do I store an 8x10 rug?
If storing, roll the rug (do not fold) and keep it in a dry, cool place. Use a protective cover to keep out dust and pests.
