Are you shopping for a new 6x10 rug for your home? If so, you've come to the right place. We have a range of styles from abstract to traditional, with everything in between.
Using a 6x10 Rug
A 6x10 rug is a medium size that can work well in tight spaces. These rugs are also more affordable than their larger counterparts, which is perfect if you're on a budget. Below, we've outlined some of our favorite ways to use a 6x10 area rug in the home. Keep reading to get inspired:
If you're on a budget, a 6x10 rug can work perfectly for the living room. This size will either sit under the coffee table in the center of the seating area or under the front two feet of your furniture. You'll need to measure your space and consult placement guides to pick the best option.
Try a 6x10 outdoor rug with indoor/outdoor material for easier cleaning and maintenance for busy living rooms. And for a traditional look, consider a 6x10 oriental rug.
Measure your space to see if you can use 6x10 rugs for dining room decor with your layout. This size will work best for smaller dining tables that seat four to six people. You'll want to leave at least 18 inches of padding on all sides so that guests can slide their chairs out without falling off the edge.
A 6x10 bedroom rug will work well for a full, twin, or queen bed. For most layouts, the bottom two feet of the bed will be on the rug, while the top two feet and your nightstands will be off of it. This placement should give you an exposed section of the rug on the sides and bottom of your bed.
Treat yourself to a 6x10 wool rug or a faux fur rug so that you have something soft to put your feet on in the morning. If you're not sure what color to get, try a 6x10 grey rug—grey works well as a neutral in the bedroom.
Rug shopping is an exciting experience. You're upgrading your home to better represent your personality, and you're adding both protection and insulation to your floors. We want you to find the perfect 6x10 rug for your home, so before you buy, check out our tips below to define what you're looking for:
Measure Carefully: Measure the room carefully to make sure you've picked the correct size. A 6x10 rug will require at least 10x14 of exposed floor space. This placement leaves 24" of room between the edges of the rug and the walls, preventing a cramped appearance. If you're pressed for space, you can opt for 18" of space between the edges of your rug and the walls instead.
Consider Durability: Pick a rug that's durable enough to stand up to the traffic, soil, shoe, moisture, and sunlight exposure in your home. You want materials that you can keep clean for years to come to get the most value out of your purchase.
