Looking for the perfect square jute rug to dress up your home? Get ready to fall in love with one of these beautiful options!
Jute is a strong natural plant fiber that’s popular in textiles ranging from burlap bags to luxury home furnishings with everything in between. And as an eco-friendly option, jute has seen an increase in popularity over the past couple of years.
A square jute area rug is a versatile piece of home décor that can work well in a variety of spaces. Square rugs are typically paired with square tables, rooms, or other accents, and you’ll know if you have a place in your home that would be a suitable candidate.
Check out these ideas below for inspiration on how to use a square jute rug in your home:
Layering an 8 ft square jute rug over a colorful 10 ft square rug increases the padding and insulation in the room. It also adds a border of color and allows you to make use of older rugs with stains or excessive wear.
Homes with high traffic might do better with a square sisal rug instead of a jute option. Sisal is a natural fiber that is stronger and rougher than jute. It’s commonly used in hotel lobbies and other zones that are subject to high levels of soil and moisture.
A 5x5 square jute rug would be an excellent candidate for a laundry or entryway room. Smaller sizes of jute rugs offer durability and versatility, all while adding texture to a space. And they layer beautifully under or over other rugs.
A Closer Look At The Square Jute Rug
When you buy a rug with a natural fiber like jute, the first thing to think about is cleaning requirements. Natural fiber rugs require regular care so you can keep them looking lovely for years to come. Jute, for example, has requirements and instructions like these:
Blot all stains and spills with gentle detergent and a clean cloth. It cannot withstand scrubbing because of the long natural fibers.
Vacuum with the beater bar disengaged to avoid causing “shedding” of natural fibers.
Use baking soda to remove undesirable scents from pet or child accidents.
Is A Square Jute Rug Right For Me?
Before you buy a new square jute area rug for your home, make sure you’ve picked the right shape and material. The questions below can help you decide:
Based on my research, is jute a good fit for my home? Jute is a durable fiber, but it’s not right for everyone. If your home experiences elevated levels of pet messes or spills, a synthetic material might be a better match.
Is square the right shape for this room’s décor and layout? Square rugs do best when paired with other square elements. Rules like this are, however, made to be broken. Use your best judgment.
