Using an 8x12 Rug
Using an 8x12 rug isn’t hard if you have the room. The real challenge is picking which of the thousands of choices you’d like in your home. We recommend basing your choice on the decor style and color palette of your room.
For those who’d like more inspiration, we’ve outlined basic ways to use 8x12 area rugs throughout your rooms below:
If you have a bedroom with a king-size bed, consider an 8x12 wool area rug. Wool is a soft, natural material perfect for insulating a bedroom floor, and 8x12 is ideal for a king-size bed. The rug could sit almost entirely under the bed and provide around 2' of soft rug surface underfoot around the edges.
Picking your favorite design and color out of hundreds of beautiful 8x12 area rugs isn’t easy. We want you to be happy with your purchase. So, make sure you know exactly what you need with our tips below before you buy.
Consider Durability: Picking the right material for your rug means considering the levels of shoe traffic, soil, moisture, and UV rays it will be exposed to. This will help you pick a material that’s durable enough for your space so that you can keep it clean and beautiful for years to come.
Get a Rug Pad: Rug pads are designed to prevent surface damage on your rug's backing and pile. They prevent sliding and can add years to the life of most area rugs. We recommend adding an 8x12 rug pad to your cart before you checkout with your new 8x12 rug.
