8'x10' area rugs are designed to fit 11'x13' or larger living rooms and open spaces. This is the most common size found in most living/family rooms. It is sufficient for the front legs of the seating furniture to be anchored to the rug. With a coffee table or ottoman in the center of the rug enough space is provided to comfortably move around. Also, larger sectionals may require this size.
Dining Room8'x10" area rugs comfortably accommodate tables with 6 chairs allowing enough room to keep the chairs on the rug when pulled back for sitting (some tables with bulkier end chairs may require 8'x11' rugs to provide room).
An 8'x10' rug is the best choice for a bedroom with a queen bed.
