We all have those rooms or entryways that remain empty due to lack of inspiration - not to mention, a great runner can be hard to find! A runner can warm cold feet, absorb sound, and be the perfect finishing touch to a smaller room or hallway. We're big fans of interesting runners here at Carini Lang and we believe that in long narrow spaces or under certain furniture pieces they can add visual interest and another layer of design.
When it comes to choosing a color for a runner, think about how you would like to compliment your interior and also keep in mind what colors and materials will hold up over time in a high traffic area . If you're choosing a piece for a hallway or small space that won't be in between the outdoors and your home then you can play with more delicate materials or lighter colors and pattern.
We recommend choosing a low pile rug for an entry way. It will last longer and stay in great shape. If you have a long narrow entryway, then choosing a runner can make your space feel warm and can even make it feel wider. Adding a round rug can add an elegant touch and create the feeling of a grand entrance. An entryway rug, or hallway runner is a welcoming way to show your personal style as soon as your visitors walk in!
