Using a 3x3 Rug
A 3x3 rug is a compact choice that only requires about 5x5 of exposed floor to keep enough room around the edges. You might place it in the center of a small seating or reading nook, in front of a door, under an accent table, or even in front of a kitchen or mudroom sink. Square rugs are typically reserved for square spaces, but you can get away with using them anywhere at this size.
Below are some of our favorite ideas for using 3x3 area rugs inside and outside the home for those who'd like more inspiration:
Adding a 3 ft square rug to your interior decor will make small spaces feel more grounded and inviting. If you're not set on a square shape, you might try a 3x3 round rug instead. Either way, align the rug with whatever feature of your home it defines for the best effect.
If you opt for a 3x3 entry rug, it can also go in front of the door inside for an extra layer of protection for your floors.
Browsing 3x3 area rugs is exciting, and we're sure you're eager to start comparing your favorites. Below, you'll find some tips we've included to help you decide which rug is best for your home based on your needs:
Measure First: Measure your space and try our room visualizer tool to see how your 3x3 rug will look in your space and confirm you're buying the correct size.
Consider Durability: Think about the level of soil, moisture, shoe traffic, and sunlight that your rug will be exposed to. Pick a material that you can keep clean in your space. If your rug isn't durable enough for the zone you place it in, it will show signs of wear faster.
