How to style runner rugs?
Whether you want a hallway runner rug to elongate the space and add depth to it or add some more comfort to your bedroom flooring, you will realise just how fun it is to style with runner rugs once you invest in one from Jaipur Rugs’ wide collection of runner rugs. But if you feel confused about how to buy the right one, where to place them, and how to style runner rugs, we have a few tips for you that will definitely come handy:
Measure the space: A rule of thumb to keep in mind when buying runner rugs is that they should always match the shape of the hallways. The average runner rug is usually 2 and 3 feet wide and 6 to 14 feet long. When placing the rug, make sure you have at least 4-5 inches of space on both sides to the wall. This helps create a defined path with the runner rug. If you have a long hallway, center your rug properly so that the floor space visible on either end of the rug doesn’t create a visual discrepancy. Remember that the main priority of investing in a runner rug is coverage, durability, as well as walkability.
Style: The architecture of the space, its flooring as well as the surrounding decor will determine which runner rug style will accentuate the space the best. If you have a cosy country-side cottage, opt for a country-style runner rug to welcome your guests home, or if you have chic tile work in the hallways opt for a contemporary runner rug. A traditional style runner rug with Oriental designs and motifs will complement hardwood floors. A stylish runner rug will help transform your hallway from boring to nothing less of a red carpet for your guests.
Material: When investing in a runner rug, you should keep in mind that they are subject to a lot of accidents, wear, and tear. From pets peeing on the entryway to muddy shoes strutting over the runner rug, there are many dangers that these rugs are subject to that rugs in your other rooms are not. Hence, it is super crucial for the material of your runner rug to handle some of this harshness. And since natural fibers don’t hold up against moisture so much, synthetic fibers are the natural option when it comes to runner rugs. They are easy to clear, resist moisture, and won’t snag.
