An entrance rug is a practical and stylish addition as you transition from outside to inside. A rug can set the tone of your space as it will be a great introduction to the rest of your home decor. When choosing a rug, consider the surrounding and the existing elements you have already. If your walls are more minimal choose a rug with a geometric pattern or multi-colour tones to create a focal point. If you have an established themed colour palette, choose one of those tones as the base for your entryway rug.
When choosing a fibre for a main walkway a flatweave rug is a popular choice for this space, if you like more softness and texture, a low pile rug is recommended. Size wise your rug should fill the space without overcrowding. If your room is more square find an area rug
Match the shape of the rug to the shape of the room. For narrow hallways, a long length runner rug is best to elongate the space. For shorter spaces a round rug or the small rug is best to fill the centre of the area. Center the rug as much as possible as it acts as the foundation of the whole space. Make sure you leave enough space for doors to open smoothly and unobstructed.
As it is a high foot traffic area, adding a non-slip rug underlay is essential for this space as it keeps the rug safely in place and also adds padding underfoot for extra comfort.
