Using a 5x7 Rug
Shopping for rugs by size allows you to explore the full variety of colors and materials. You could purchase a blue, gray, black, red, teal, yellow, cream, or multicolored 5x7 rug, for example. Or you could combine neutral colors and opt for something like a black and white 5x7 rug. The design options are limited only by your imagination.
A 5x7 rug is a perfect size for smaller spaces. In most situations, you want to keep 12 to 24 inches between the edges of the rug and the wall. So, the smallest area that could house 5x7 area rugs would be a 7x9 room. But there are many other uses for the 5x7 rug size. We'll elaborate below:
How Big is a 5x7 Rug?
A 5x7 rug is a medium-sized rug. For those asking, "what is a 5x7 rug in inches?"? it's 60"?x84"?. Measure your rooms to visualize how big a 5x7 rug will be in relation to the dimensions of your home. And if you need a bit more coverage, try a 5x8 rug or a 6x9 rug.
Is a 5x7 Rug Big Enough?
A 5x7 rug is big enough to fit underneath a coffee table in a small living room. Depending on your home's layout, a 5x7 rug can also work nicely in the center of the kitchen or to either side of a kitchen island.
Will a 5x7 Rug Fit Under a Queen Bed?
A 5x7 rug fits nicely under a twin bed, with ample room on both sides. For a queen bed, a 6x9 or 8x10 rug would be a better match. An 8' round rug also fits nicely under a queen bed.
Shopping for 5x7 area rugs is exciting, and it can be hard to choose between so many beautiful designs. To help eliminate some of your options so you can make sure you get the rug that you want, check out the tips and hints below:
Consider Durability: Pay attention to the material(s) each rug is made with and pick one that you can keep clean. The nicest rug in the world doesn't look good if you can't maintain its condition because of high exposure to traffic, moisture, soil, or UV rays.
Get a Rug Pad: Rug pads are designed to prevent sliding, which protects your rug's backing and pile from friction damage. This can add years to the life of your new 5x7 rug, and we highly recommend adding a pad to your cart before you checkout.
