Below, you’ll find some of our favorite ways to use a 7x11 area rug around the home. Keep reading if you’d like more inspiration.
A 7x11 rug should accommodate a standard living room seating arrangement, with the coffee table in the center and the front legs of the furniture on the rug. If you're going for a traditional look, a 7x11 vintage rug can make your living area feel stately and elegant. Meanwhile, a modern or abstract style can instantly update the room and give it a sleek appeal.
Try using a 7x11 wool rug in the bedroom, where this soft natural fiber can be protected from heavy traffic. Position it under your bed so that the lower 80% is on the rug, with the back legs and nightstands off of the rug. This should pad the space around the bed, no matter what size of bed you have.
Entryway or Patio
You can use a 7x11 outdoor rug to define a seating area on your patio or protect a large entryway in a home. Indoor/outdoor rugs are usually made from sturdy synthetic fibers, but you could use a 7x11 sisal rug or a 7x11 jute rug if you'd like something natural.
We want you to find a 7x11 area rug that you’ll love for years to come. You’re probably eager to start shopping for your favorites by now, but first, please check out our tips below. These pointers will help you avoid common buyer’s mistakes so that you get what you need the first time:
Measure Carefully: Picking the wrong size can ruin the look you're going for. Measure your space carefully to make sure it is at least 9’x13’ to accommodate the 7x11 area rug. This leaves a minimum of 12” of space between the edges of the rug and the walls. If you can leave 24” of space, this will create a better aesthetic.
Consider Durability: Look for a rug that’s durable enough to stand up to the activity level in your household. Consider how much moisture, soil, sunlight, and shoe traffic the rug will be exposed to, and pick a material that you’ll be able to keep clean.
Get a Rug Pad: Rug pads add years to the life of a rug by protecting the pile and backing from surface damage. We recommend adding a pad to your cart before checking out with your new 7x11 rug to ensure it's protected from day one.
