With that said, it is imperative to know that the size of your rug, not just its appearance, can change the dynamic of your room.

Decorating with 5x8 Rugs In Your Home
The most common mistake cited by interior designers is selecting a floor covering that is sized too small for a living space. This has the effect to disrupt the overall balance of your room, and brings a slapdash, messy appearance to your home. An area rug 5x8 in size might seem large, but is actually best suited for larger sized areas like your living room or bedroom. Area rugs 5x8 in size have multiple functions like identifying and dividing sections of a room. A 5x8 rug can be used to define specific seating areas in your living room, such as under a coffee table with the rest of your furniture, like sofas and armchairs, positioned at the perimeter of your carpet. Rugs 5x8 also have many applications in the bedroom. A 5x8 area rug can be placed horizontally at the foot of your bed so that a portion of the rug is exposed on all sides of your bed. The break between flooring and your rug adds subtle visual distinction and breaks up the monotony of your room with added visual color and pattern. LuxeDecor offers many styles, colors, and patterns of 5x8 area rugs so that you can attain any desired appearance for your home and give it your personal touch of style.
