Southwestern Rug Runners

Southwestern rug runners can look great in many different rooms and situations. But most commonly, you'll find runners in hallways, kitchens, foyers, behind sofas, and as an accent in a room with other, larger rugs also in the room. Runners are a great way to add a bit of style and warmth to an area where you wouldn't otherwise be able to fit a rug into. You want to choose a Southwestern rug runner that fits your space, your personal style, and the decor of the rest of your home. Don't be afraid to play around with different styles of home decor. There are no rules that say you can't throw a Southwest runner rug down in a room with modern style pieces. Whatever works for you and makes you happy is all good. Also, one good thing about rugs when combining different styles is that rugs are typically expected to add a pop of style and color. So going with a bold rug can work well - even if it is from a different style of interior decorating.

2x8ft Southwestern Rugs

Runners can come in a multitude of sizes, but currently, all of our runners measure 2x8 feet. This is a very common size for runner rugs and we find typically works out well in a lot of decorating situations. If you are looking for runners that are in other sizes, please feel free to reach out to us and we'll see what we can find you that fits your desired size. Runner rugs are an easy way to add intrigue and a pop of style to your home and interior design. You can add a matching runner to go with your larger 5x8 or 8x11 rug. Or you can go with a different design for your runner that compliments the other rug you have in the same space. Feel free to mix and match your rug designs, but, of course, there's nothing with ordering matching rug designs.

We have a versatile collection that spans a range of different styles. Whether you're looking for striking, vibrant colors or cozy, subtle tones, you'll find just the right pick that suits your house from our wide collection, and we hope our featured rugs above have stirred you in the right direction already.

Where to Place Southwest 5x8 Area Rugs

Living Room

The 5x8 area rug size represents the typical area of rug dimensions. Depending on your room size, furniture placement, and proximity to the walls, the 5x8 size can serve many different purposes. When it comes to the living area, you always want to make sure your space feels spacious and inviting. You might be surprised to know something as simple as just choosing the right rug and placing it in harmony with your existing furniture can completely transform the feel of your living room. An area rug, as its name implies, serves to define your sitting area. You can choose a rug size that extends for a couple of inches beyond your sofa and chairs, or go for a smaller size that doesn't go under the furniture itself. Instead, it becomes the centerpiece around which your living room converges. If you prefer the latter choice, a 5x8 Southwestern rug should fit perfectly in most cases. Make sure you pick the accents that complement your existing room ambiance, so everything feels like one cohesive unit that is easy on the eye.


When getting out of your bed in the morning, you want your feet to be greeted by a soft, cushioning rug when touching the floor. There is no one right way to design your bedroom's rugs' placement, but we're here to focus on the 5x8 size. If placed perpendicularly, the 5x8 southwestern rugs can fit under your bed and extend in front of the nightstands on both sides. This can be an excellent choice for people who don't want to use multiple smaller rugs.

Final Thoughts

The open plan design of living areas is great as it gives you the utmost space utilization. You can have your sitting area, kitchen, and dining room all flowing as one unit without any partitions. This way, you get a more roomy area that acts as a social hub where your whole family can come together. The wide adoption of such internal design language made area rugs more relevant than ever. You want to set order over your space, so even if there aren't any walls to separate different rooms, there are enough visual cues in the form of our southwestern rugs to ease you into defining the borders of every individual area.  This can also extend to rooms. For example, if you want to set a reading corner in your bedroom, you can use one of our Southwest 5x8 area rugs to set such an area apart from the rest of the room. Make sure you maintain the same color palette so you still get a sense of a unified design.

Round Southwestern Rugs

Round Southwestern rugs are a welcome departure from the rectangular, sharp-bordered rugs that we see everywhere. The round shape conveys the illusion of having more spacious areas, making it the ideal choice for spaces like in the middle of a foyer, dining room, children's rooms, and office nooks. Furthermore, you can use a smaller round rug on top of a rectangular area rug. You might ask, why would I want to do that? The answer is pretty simple! A round rug with just the right accents can make your space pop. This can be just what you're looking for if you want to divide larger, open spaces into specific, easily-identifiable areas. Though Southwest area rugs provide a new, fresh way to decorate your house, they can be a bit tricky to integrate into your space if you don't know where to start. We have some extra ideas in store for you that will surely make you on top of your interior home decorating game.

Where to Place 8ft Round Southwestern Area Rugs

Dining Room

If you have a rounded table at the center of your dining room, a rug with the same shape will make perfect sense. When settling on the right size, you need to consider the extra space that the chairs can occupy when pulled away from the table. You don't want to end up with your chairs sitting halfway on the rug and the floor beneath. For an eye-pleasing setup, make sure your round rug is away from the walls. You want your rug to look as if it's floating in space and carrying your dining table with it. If any part of the circle's perimeter touches a wall, the illusion is instantly broken, and your room will look asymmetrical.


An 8ft round Southwestern rug in your entryway adds a welcoming design, especially if you pick a fitting color pattern with predominantly warmer tones. You can slap in a small table and a chair where you can place your keys and bag. The round rug is the secret glue that defines such a setup and makes it work out. Subconsciously, you'll know it's time to reach to put or take your keys out of their rack once you step on your entryway round rug.


A round rug can be a great option to consider when setting up a corner in your bedroom or your kids' room. For example, a reading corner with its own bookshelf and comfy chair can all be outlined by a round Southwestern rug that creates a sense of intimacy and harmony. Remember, you don't want your round rug to ever touch a wall. So, make it the centerpiece with all the other furniture arranged around it and at least touching part of its perimeter. Furthermore, if you want to ensure your kids leave their room organized after playing, you can set a dedicated playing area with a vibrant round Southwest area rug. Now, toys live only in this area, and they shouldn't become dispersed all over the room.

Final Thoughts

We hope our ideas have set you on the right path to explore more ways to integrate round rugs in your house. They fit perfectly in roomy bathrooms, your breakfast nook, in addition to being a way to accentuate curved furniture. As you can see, the possibilities are endless, and we've only addressed the tip of the iceberg. Now that you know the do and don'ts of decorating with round Southwestern rugs, we're excited for you to start experimenting and seeing what works best for your particular space.
