5x8 rugs

With our definitive Guide to Rug Sizes, you'll learn everything you need to know about selecting the perfect medium rug for your home.
You probably aren't interested in an area rug for comfort if you have wall-to-wall carpeting, but you can still get the style and panache of one by placing it under the foot of the bed. This technique can give you space in front of the bed to create a seating arrangement with accent chairs or a bench, adding more functionality to your room.

For the living room, if you want to keep the furniture legs away from the carpet, the 5'x8' rug size is recommended for a compact but spacious room.

Where to Put a 5 by 8 Rug?

You may be wondering where you can place a 5x8 rug. The answer is: pretty much anywhere. A 5x8 rug is big enough to cover the majority of a room but small enough that it won't overwhelm the space. It's also a good size for under a dining table as long as you don't have more than six chairs around it.

However, this is the perfect size option if you're looking for something to put in your bedroom or living room!

How to Decorate a Room with a 5 by 8 Rug?

  • Place the rug in the center of the room. This is an important rule to remember when displaying any kind of rug, but particularly so with 5 by 8 rugs because they harmonize well with so many interior design schemes and can be used to anchor a space.
  • Place the rug on a hard floor. A rug that rests over carpeting will not be as effective at anchoring a room or drawing attention to itself, which means you'll have wasted your money. If you already have carpeting throughout your home, consider placing this type of rug underfoot while sitting down—it will bring some charm to even the most mundane setting!
  • Make sure that it's not too small for your space and also that it's not too big for it either—no one wants their guests tripping over something they own (or worse yet, stepping on one edge!).

How Much Does It Cost for a 5x8 Rug?

A 5x8 rug is an excellent option for those who don't want to commit to a larger area rug but still desire a soft floor covering. It's also great for families with pets or children, as the smaller size makes it easier to clean up messes. The following paragraph will discuss the costs associated with buying a 5x8 area rug and some other factors that should be considered when purchasing one of these rugs.

Iranian rugs have different dimensions. 5 x 8 Iranian rugs are one of the most popular. 5x8 Iranian rugs available at CyrusCrafts range from approximately $482 to $9,550. However, you can find cheaper machine-woven carpets.

Can 5x8 Rugs be Washed?

Yes, 5x8 rugs can be washed. You should use a gentle detergent, but not bleach.

You should wash your 5x8 rug by hand or machine wash. Wash in cold water on a gentle cycle and rinse well before air drying away from direct sunlight (which will fade the color). Do not use fabric softener, which can make your rug look dull and stiff after drying.

Will a 5x8 Rug Fit a Queen Bed?

One of the most common questions we get is, "will a 5x8 rug fit a queen bed?" A 5x8 rug will always fit a standard queen bed.

If you have a king-sized mattress (76 inches x 80 inches), then the answer is no: there aren't any 5x8 rugs that are large enough for such an enormous mattress! We recommend placing any smaller rugs in front or behind your bed so that they can be seen from either side and placed equally far from each corner.

Is 5x8 Rug too Small?

Let's talk about how big rugs are generally used in homes. Most people choose rugs based on their needs for each particular room—whether it's for aesthetic purposes or comfort and function. For example, if someone has a large living room with hardwood floors and wants something soft underfoot while also adding some color and patterning to the space (and they don't mind sitting down on top of their area rug rather than placing it beneath furniture), then they would likely go with an 8x10 square floor covering because this type of size works well across most types of furniture styles along with being large enough so as not feel lost amongst other decor elements around them (like large windows). 

But in general, the 5 x 8 carpet is perfectly suitable for use in the bedroom and kitchen and for use in the living room (whether you want to spread small carpets among your furniture or a large carpet for the entire living room).


In conclusion, 5 by 8 rugs are great for a variety of uses and purposes. They can be used as a rug or carpet in your living room to add color and personality to the space, or they can be placed under a table or chair leg to give them some cushioning.

These rugs come in all shapes and sizes, so there's sure to be one that fits right into your home decor!
