What are runner rugs?
Characterized by their long length and lesser breadth, runner rugs are usually used on staircases, home entrances, and in corridors and hallways. Often used as accent pieces, they can be used to bring a room together or highlight a certain character of the space, such as a color palette, layout of the space, or the shape of the room. Corridors, staircases, and entrances are high foot traffic areas and a runner rug can not help protect their floors from wear and tear, but also make that often neglected space look beautiful. At Jaipur Rugs UAE, you will find excellent runner rug pieces that will not only be able to handle all those footsteps of visitors, but also make your space look much warmer and inviting. Our collection of hallway runner rugs are dust and dirt-resistant, and come in exciting patterns and wonderful designs, and are sure to add that extra edge to your living space.
How to style runner rugs for your home?
Whether you are looking for a hallway runner rug to add texture and a sense of space to your corridors, or just to add some more comfort to your bedroom flooring, Jaipur Rugs UAE will be your one-stop to find the perfect decor and buy runner rugs online. But if you are still contemplating, and are confused about how to find the right one, where to place them, and how to style them, we have a few tips for you that will definitely come in handy:
The Right Size:
First and foremost, keep in mind when buying runner rugs that they should always match the shape of the hallways. Usually, runner rugs are about 2 and 3 feet wide and 6 to 14 feet in length. While placing the runner rug, be sure that you have at least 4-5 inches of space left bare on both sides of the wall. This will help to create a defined path and a contrasting texture with the runner rug. If the hallways or corridor that you are styling is quite long, make sure to center your rug properly so that the floor space that is visible on either side doesn’t look lopsided.
Styling it right:
The best style for your space depends on its architecture and layout, and the surrounding decor as well. For a cozy cottage home in the countryside, opt for country-style runners like flatweaves carpets and kilim carpets in warm tones and minimal patterning. If you have a chic tile-work in your hallways, opt for a contemporary runner rug. For large corridors in a dark and premium dark wood, opt for traditional style runner rugs in oriental design motifs. For a premium-looking entrance to your home, why not go all the way and install a red carpet to welcome you and your guests.
Make and Material:
Runner rugs in corridors, hallways, and staircases are the most prone to damage and neglect. From urinating pets to muddy shoes walking all over the rug, the ordeal that runners go through is endless. When choosing a runner rug, it is super important to opt for a make and material that will handle the harsh treatment on a daily basis. For such use, it makes sense to go for synthetic fibers rather than natural fibers. Synthetics are quite resistant to moisture and are also easier to clean and make sense for use as runner rugs.
