Round or Square?
Have you ever wondered what would look better in your kitchen or living room: A round or a square / rectangle area rug?
Some things to consider are:
1. Style – For example for a romantic look – soft tones, curvy shapes flowers, etc. A round area rug would fit nicely. A hip or modern look would sport more geometric shapes inwhich a square area rug would fit nicely.
2. Staging – Depending on what will rest on your rug, you may want a different shape. for rectangular tables with chairs, a rectangular table where all the chairs can sit on the rug would look best. Too many round area rugs in a room can look too “dotty” unless you have angular or curved walls.
3. Visual – Patterns and designs can look better on square or rectangular area rugs where swirly patterns and rag-style looks tend to enhance a round area rug.
