Deciding on what kind of rug for your home can be a difficult choice, however practicality and versatility of a washable rug can significantly sway your decision making. We've listed a few great reasons below as to why you should choose a washable rug.
Pets and Children - Whether you have pets, children, or both, a washable 8x10 rug can stand up to the mess, be cleaned easily, and be both beautiful and practical.
Easy to clean - These rugs are easy to clean with small spots and big ones; blotting small liquid stains can offer quick relief, but these rugs are also machine washable.
Durable - Rugs like these are also more durable and can stand the test of time in your home and will look beautiful even after washing.
Decorating with an 8x10 Washable Rug
Styling Tips Based on Rooms:
Living Room - An 8x10 rug is a common size for living rooms, and it works well in a few different layouts. You can station it centralized in front of your sofa, or if you have another seating arrangement in a “U” formation, you can use that rug as the central space for that seating.
Dining Room - When using a machine washable 8x10 rug in your dining room, it’s natural to center it beneath your dining room table. You can choose an 8x10 rug that fits whatever your style is, whether that be traditional, elegant, modern, or something else.
Bedroom - Stylizing your bedroom with a washable 8x10 rug is a great way to add in some cozy comfort in your bedroom. Common practice is to place the rug underneath ? of the bed and have it extend into the rest of the room out from the foot of the bed. If your room is smaller, you can always place it completely under the bed and against the wall. Or if your bedroom is larger, you can place it by the side of the bed and have it serve as a bridge from your bed to the rest of the room.
Kitchen - 8x10 rugs work well in open kitchens. Adding in a washable 8x10 rug makes perfect sense anywhere, but especially in a kitchen, where there’s a lot of foot traffic and food droppings.
Outdoors - A machine washable 8x10 rug works great outside, since backyards and porches are often big enough to handle a large rug. You can place your rug centralized in your sitting area or station it beneath a dining space.
Will an 8x10 rug fit in a washing machine?
Yes, even an 8x10 rug can fit into a standard washing machine! You can fit into a dryer as well, and while you can safely dry a rug in the dryer on low, gentle heat, we recommend letting your rug air-dry when possible.
