What Patterns, Colors and Designs are Available for 8’ Square Area Rugs
Find various rugs in different patterns, colors, and designs depending on their styles. Our extensive inventory stocks 8’ square rugs in traditional, tribal, contemporary, and transitional styles.
A distinct feature of Oriental rugs is the borders on their surfaces. Meanwhile, contemporary rugs have a more abstract approach to design. Transitional carpets draw inspiration from conventional designs but have combined them with fashion-forward patterns and color schemes. On the other hand, tribal rugs use bright colors and geometric patterns for their piles.
Choosing the Right 8’ Square Area Rug for You
Selecting the right 8’ square rug for your living space can be daunting as there are various options available. It’s best if you consider the size of your space. A rug with this dimension is best suited for medium-sized areas. Measure your rooms carefully to know what carpet size works best.
It helps if you also identify the rug’s purpose. Will it define a seating area, add warmth, or provide a focal point? Choosing the right rug will be easier once you establish its role in a room.
Another factor to consider is material. Different fibers have varying levels of durability and maintenance requirements. Wool is long-lasting and easy to clean, while silk is soft and delicate.
Given these factors, you mustn’t hesitate to mix and match. An 8’ square area rug with bold patterns can be balanced with subtle decor choices. But if you prefer a neutral rug, bring pops of color with accessories like paintings, throw pillows, and curtains.
Caring For and Cleaning 8’ Square Rugs
Here are some common ways to clean and care for your 8’ square area rug.
Vacuuming is key to keeping your area rug looking its best. We recommend cleaning at least once a week or more frequently if you have pets or have placed the rug in areas with high foot traffic. You can use a vacuum with a beater bar or rotating brush to get deep into its fibers.
You should also immediately address spills and stains as soon as they happen. Blot up any excess liquid with a clean cloth. Avoid using cleaning agents with harsh chemicals to prevent further damage.
Prevent uneven wear and tear by constantly rotating the rug every six months. This tip will ensure all areas of the rug receive equal foot traffic.
