Using an 8x11 Rug
An 8x11 rug will fit nicely in an 11x13 room or one that’s slightly larger. The best layouts make space for 12 to 24 inches of floor between the edges of your rug and the walls. This prevents a cramped look and makes your area feel larger.
We recommend picking a rug that works well with your room’s color palette and decor style. Most spaces should have a palette of four to six colors to keep the designs cohesive. And a bit of browsing online should help you identify the primary theme that matches your home’s current aesthetic.

Is an 8x10 Rug Big?
Just how big is an 8x11 rug? It's on the smaller side of large, and precisely 96”x132”. For example, if you have a traditional style living room, you should be able to fit a coffee table and sofa on an oriental rug 8x11. You could add two accent chairs, most likely with the back two legs of each sitting off the rug’s edge.
Where Should I Place an 8x11 Rug?
Provided you have enough square footage, you can place 8x11 area rugs in any room. For example, an 8x11 gray rug would work well under the bottom two-thirds of a queen-size bed in a chic bedroom. In a dining room, you might try an 8x11 braided rug underneath a rectangular table for six.
Browsing 8x11 area rugs should be a fun process but picking your favorite rug from an array of stunning designs is challenging. Use the tips and tricks below to help narrow down your options and make sure you buy the perfect rug for your home:
Consider Durability: Before you buy a rug, look at the material(s) it is made from and learn about the cleaning requirements. It’s crucial to pick a rug that you can keep clean in your home. You’ll need different materials based on the level of exposure to traffic, moisture, soil, or UV rays in your space. If you’re decorating outdoors or in a busy entryway, try an 8x11 outdoor rug.
Get a Rug Pad: Rug pads are placed under your rug to prevent sliding damage to the pile and backing. They can add years to the life of your new 8x11 rug. We recommend adding an 8x11 rug pad to your cart before checkout.
