Breathe Life Into Your Home with a 9x12 Area Rug
Interior designers use 9 by 12 rugs to add a subtle and intricate layer of sophistication to a given space.
However, large area rugs should be used in spacious rooms, as they can make smaller rooms feel cramped and suffocating. So, consider what you want to achieve in a space before placing a large area rug in it.
Do you want it to be the centerpiece of the room? Will you use it to create sections to create a more spacious area? You’ll also need to factor in the rug's pattern, materials, maintenance, and color.
Exploring the Dimensions, Materials, and Styles of 9x12 Rugs
The 9x12 area rugs in our showroom are either handmade or crafted using a machine. Hand-woven rugs are more valuable as they require meticulous craftsmanship, dedication, and more time to accomplish than mechanically-woven pieces.
Moreover, handmade rugs are not only unique but made by skilled artisans who use the finest materials, such as wool, silk, and cotton, for enhanced durability and longevity. Unlike mass-produced rugs, each handmade piece is distinct and showcases the artisan's expertise, making it a perfect addition to any space.
Depending on their style, 9x12 rugs feature various designs and motifs. They can be a Persian rug with bold red colors and symbols depicting nature or a contemporary rug in cool blue hues and a more abstract approach. Browse our inventory or visit our showroom to see all available designs.
Tips for Finding The Perfect 9x12 Rug for Your Home
When purchasing a luxury rug, it’s important to determine its intended use and placement. Doing so will help you consider factors such as the type of material used and the expected level of foot traffic it will receive.
For instance, rugs in kitchens and dining rooms must be prepared for spills. We recommend flat-weave rugs as they prevent liquid stains from seeping into the fibers. A custom rug with a thick pile is perfect in areas with low foot traffic.
You should also consider the color and patterns of your 9x12 area rug. For instance, bold hues will instantly stand out in a room with neutral tones.

Caring & Cleaning Your 9x12 Rugs
9x12 area carpets are placed in areas with high foot traffic. Thus, they should be cleaned regularly to prolong their lifespan. On top of that, consider these other factors as well:
- Vacuum the rug regularly
- Use the lowest setting of the vacuum to avoid damaging the material
- Clean spills by gently dabbing the affected area instead of scrubbing
- Rotate the rug regularly
- Avoid placing the rugs in sunny areas to prevent fading
- Have the carpets cleaned every two years by a professional
How to Decorate a Room Using a 9x12 Area Rug
As mentioned earlier, your room's theme will determine your rugs' colors and patterns. You should also consider the basic principles of color psychology in interior design.
Red is the most vibrant color and boosts the energy in a room. Yellow is associated with positivity and can brighten dark corners. Some people may combine these shades to highlight affluence and sophistication, whereas shades of blue evoke relaxation and relieve stress.
Beautify Your Interior Space with a Striking 9x12 Area Rug
Rugs too small for a room can make the space feel cold and uninviting. On the other hand, if the carpet is too large, the area may appear cramped. Choosing the right size is essential to balancing an interior space.
9x12 rugs are ideal for large areas like living and dining rooms. For living rooms, ensure at least 18 inches of exposed flooring around the edges of the carpet to make the space look spacious. These larger rugs are ideal for dining areas under tables with six to eight chairs.
Placing 9x12 area rugs horizontally under the bed and exposing a large portion of the carpet on both sides can make any bedroom look relaxing.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do you clean a 9x12 rug?
Regularly vacuuming your rug will prevent dust and dirt buildup. We recommend cleaning it by hand. To do so, you can use a white cloth and paper towels. Avoid scrubbing to prevent discoloration. And if you can’t get the stain out yourself, you can hire a professional.
How often should you vacuum your 9x12 rugs?
9x12 rugs are expected to receive high foot traffic. Thus, it’s best to vacuum them twice a week if you have guests over regularly. You should also clean your rugs every day if you have pets. Hair and other particles will rapidly accumulate if you don’t routinely remove them. We also recommend using the lowest setting while vacuuming.
What happens if you spill liquids on your wide 9x12 area rugs?
You can use a clean cloth or paper towel to dab the area, allowing them to absorb as much liquid as possible. After that, apply a cleaning solution and wipe carefully until the stain is removed.
