What’s the Best Location in the Home for a Runner Rug?
There are many obvious places in the home that you may have already thought of for your runner rug. However, because literally any space can be enhanced by a runner rug, there may be a few locations you have not considered. Depending on the dimensions, style, and color choices, runner rugs are ideal for kitchens, bedrooms, entryways, and hallways. Hand knotted and elegant, runner rugs are one of the best ways to instantly upgrade a room or hall.
Upgrade the Kitchen
Rugs are not often considered in the kitchen. But runner rugs are a stylish way to upgrade this space. Placed between an island and cabinets, a runner rug will add a pop of color to earth-toned or neutral kitchens. Not to mention, a runner rug adds warmth to an otherwise cold floor.
Create a Cozier Bedroom
The bedroom is a great place for a runner rug. Large area rugs are often the first go-to choice. However, a runner rug on either side of the bed adds a cozy and chic element that complements the room. Turn up the coziness with a decorative and colorful runner rug or two in your bedroom. Here is a little secret, runner rugs are also a great idea in a walk-in closet, too.
Create a Welcoming Entryway
Welcome guests into your home with a decorative and colorful entryway runner rug. Whether at the front door, patio door, or breeze way, runner rugs add suppleness to the area. When anyone enters the home and removes their shoes, the entryway rug can help soften footsteps. A runner rug can also help create the illusion of a larger entryway, which could make the area more inviting.
Beautify Any Hallway
Protect hardwood floors or carpeting in high traffic hallways with runner rugs. Hallways are particularly popular for runner rugs because they add a touch of warmth and uniqueness to the hallway. We offer a variety of colors, styles, and sizes to ensure that you get a rug that perfectly fits the area.
Update a Staircase
For those with hardwood stairs, runner rugs are an absolute must. They don’t only add decorative appeal to the aesthetic of the home, but they also help to reduce falls and slips, preserve the life of the stairs, and reduce noise. Make a bold statement on any size staircase with the perfect runner rug. If you have any questions about installation on your stairs, let us know. We are happy to answer any questions or concerns.
