8x10 Area Rug Piles & Textures

For different areas and uses, we have a variety of rug pile and textures to choose from. In areas with low-clearance doors, consider our Flatweaves & Kilims. These lightweight rugs have no pile, making them ideal for such areas. For living rooms and bedrooms where comfort is key, explore our selection of 8x10 area rugs with a higher pile of 1/2 to 3 inches. For dining rooms and kitchens, consider our Vintage Rugs or Overdyed & Distressed Rugs, which are shaved to have a lower pile of about 1/4 to 1/6 of an inch. These pieces facilitate chair movement and are easy to clean.

Is 8x10 the Right Rug Size for Me?

The key to styling your 8x10 area rug is to ensure it properly fits in the intended space. Here are some guidelines:

Living Room: For open floor plans or larger rooms, an 8x10 area rug is an excellent choice. Leave at least 2 feet of flooring visible around the rug. Your living room furniture should either completely sit on top of the rug, or the front legs of your furniture should lay on the rug.

Bedroom: An 8x10 rug is suitable for beds of various sizes, from double to queen to king. If you are placing the rug under your nightstands, the rug will need to extend about 1 foot past them. If not, leave a minimum of 2 feet of soft carpet around the bed for comfort.

Dining Room: An 8x10 rug works well for a dining table that seats 4 to 6 people. This allows for ample space around the table for easy chair movement while keeping all chair legs on the rug

How to Maintain 8x10 Rugs

Handmade rug owners understand that proper care and regular upkeep preserves and even appreciates the value of their investment. While wool rugs do an incredible job at hiding dirt, these pieces will over time undergo wear and as such accumulate abrasive dirt that if left to fester can damage the rug’s fibres and foundation. This type of damage cannot be undone, and as more and more dirt penetrate the fibres it leads to a loss of color and vibrancy making the rug appear dull. Rather than wait till your rug looks dirty to bring it in for a clean, we recommend you incorporate a few at-home care practices that will help extend the life and sheen of your rug. Regular vacuuming of your 8x10 area rug will help to eliminate dirt and particles. Firstly, be sure to turn the beater bar off as the aggressive motorized brush can break the surface fibres of your rug. Next, vacuum sideways across the width of the rug and across the direction of the pile. At all costs avoid vacuuming over the fringe as rotating brushes will quickly tear the fringe. If your rug has a thin foundation with a pile, we recommend using an upholstery attachment and vacuuming in the direction of the pile only. Don’t be aggressive and apply too much pressure. The goal is to keep the buildup of dust and grit to a minimum. In general, you want to vacuum the top of your rug every 1 to 2 weeks depending on the traffic it’s getting and the location in your home. Every other month, vacuum the backside of the rug as this will help to keep moth and bug activity to a minimum.
