A room's shape should dictate the rug you choose. There are endless options for rugs, but if your space is square or rectangular, consider a square-shaped rug for that unique look. Rectangular shapes will fill up extra spaces in more creative ways than squares do; round and oval-shaped rugs may be better suited for those with irregularly shaped rooms though they'll also take up more floor space. That rectangular rug might not be the best option for your square-shaped room. Rectangular rugs can make a room seem boxy and uninteresting, but if you want to avoid that, keep in mind that there are other rugs out there than just rectangles. If you have an L-shape or T shape floor plan, consider ordering something with those dimensions instead, like a circular rug which would help break up all the straight lines throughout your space. The best Square Rugs for 2024 are on a list below, and it is full of some great choices. These are all going to be the perfect addition to any room in your home. They come in so many different colors, sizes, shapes, and materials, making it easy for you to find one that matches your style. There is something here for everyone.

Frequently Asked Questions About Square Rugs

1. How Often Should I Rotate My Rug?

Ideally, you should rotate the rug every quarter. The rug's pile will gradually go flat if it gets worn in one place from prolonged standing or sitting. And when that happens, it may be necessary to have the rug professionally cleaned by a carpet cleaner for best results. To avoid this problem and have your rug last as long as possible, make sure you always rotate your area rugs based on wear patterns and dirt accumulation. It is recommended that the rug be rotated every 6-8 months. Rotating the rug will prevent wear and tear from making your carpet look dull, worn, and old. With wear and tear, dirt becomes embedded in certain areas of carpet that get walked a lot more than others. Rotating your rug will lessen this imbalance in cleanliness by spreading it around to other sections of the carpet as well.

2. In What Setting Do You Think A Square Area Rug Will Work Best?

A square area rug might work well when a person wants to add eye-catching detail to their room. This type of rug typically works in modern settings because it is usually geometric shaped and considered trendy but may not be best for more traditional or classic spaces. In general, this type of rug can easily fit into any space that needs a little something extra. When choosing a square area rug for your own home, consider the point that solid colors often pop out better than patterned styles, making it harder to fit neatly into the rest of your decorating scheme. 

3. Do You Have Any Tips For Picking The Best One For Your Home/Office/etc....?

Determine the need for your space. Is this for a family room or bedroom? Office or Murphy Bed? Before any purchase, list out all needs that will be addressed by the piece being purchased. Determine where you want to place the piece in your home/office/etc. Will it fit in well with current items? Is this related to something that can tie an area together aesthetically? Does it fit with your style preferences, such as Victorian, Modern Industrial, etc.? Remember to measure the space and compare measurements for sizing purposes. Visit any stores around town and take notes on what you like and don't like about everything you find. Then narrow down to two options that contrast with your décor accent and try.

4. What Are Some Different Ways To Use Square Area Rugs?

    1. Lay the square rug on the floor, with space for furniture precisely calculated.
    2. Stand it up against a wall vertically for a unique design update. This also helps illustrate how modern art looks good against cheap, neutral-colored walls, such as eggshells or white paint.
    3. Propose them on top of any other object to form (e.g.) an imperfect square or more interesting shape (e.g., triangles).
    4. Lay it out on your floor as a play mat for your kids.
    5. Stack them up to create a taller tower shape
    6. cover the bottom of your stairs with them to form a base at the bottom
    7. line them up all the same to make an interesting border around your balcony or garden.
    8. An accent rug complements a larger rug to provide color or texture.
    9. One large square area rug can be used for the entire floor covering while smaller rugs are added as an accent.
    10. Square area rugs are commonly used on staircases, alongside poufs or benches; alternatively, they make great seat covers in front of sofas and chairs.
    11. Squares don't have to go just against walls; under beds, besides end tables or desks in the lounge room, can all make a big impact aesthetically. Squares do beautifully under window seats—so it's easy to sit there and admire them. 

5. What Are The Best Materials For A Square Area Rug?

It depends on what you want the rug for. If you're looking for a decorative rug, then I would recommend using wool. It's inexpensive, resists mold and insects, and it comes in a wide range of colors. On the other hand, if you are looking for a high-traffic area rug, I would recommend buying sisal or seagrass with jute braiding; they are very durable with an average life expectancy of 15 years. In general, natural fibers such as wool, cotton, and linen tend to last longer in heavy traffic areas, more so than synthetic rugs made with molds or chemicals (acrylic, nylon). If you're looking for long-life durability and easy ability to vacuum, it's typically recommended.

6. In What Ways Are Square Area Rugs Able To Shape The Floor Plan And Style Of A Room?

Square area rugs are one of the strongest shapes for large spaces, making them a great choice for hallways. They also work well in general living and family areas, as they can often mask imperfections on the floor. If you want to build length or use space more efficiently, it's always better to choose an L-shaped lounge instead. Otherwise, square shapes can take away from already limited space and create awkward tension in triangular locations like entryways and corridors.

7. What Is The Smallest Size Square Rug You'd Recommend Installing?

We recommend measuring the size of the space you want to cover and using a calculator to figure out the nearest fraction or square foot equivalence. The most common sizes are 8x8 for an entry rug, 16x16 for a living room rug, and 12x12 for a kitchen area or hallway.
