Traditional house designs of this type usually opened straight into a hallway and a hallway runner rug would lead traffic down past the front bedrooms and sitting room to a central space in the heart of the home, close to the kitchen.
Since then, the hallway rug has morphed and changed to suit a range of spaces including office, studios and even the space beside your bed. Shag rugs are the perfect soft place to put your feet first thing in the morning.

What size should a runner rug be for a hallway?
A hallway rug or hall runner rugs are generally long or even extra long. Runner rugs and are usually designed to cover the space connecting one door to the next. The most common placement for oversized rugs like long hall runners is from the front door of your home leading to the living space within. This might be a large hallway or a small one, depending on your home, but whatever the size, your hallway rug is a welcoming and often important indicator of where traffic should go.
Hallway spaces are traditionally quite narrow passages throughout the home, particularly in older style designs. This makes them ideal place to overlook when you’re looking for décor and furnishings, but the hallway should never be neglected, and a hallway rug is a perfect way to breathe some much-needed life and vitality into your home space. As a vital and central artery leading through your home, your hallway is the place to populate with your favourite designs and décor, offering you the space for small homey touches that big and central living spaces can often be crowded with.
Our range of hallway runner rugs include rugs constructed from soft, natural fibres which can offer your space a light and earthy look and feel. Choose from our natural jute hallway rug collection for a versatile and hard-wearing material that has been hand loomed by skilled craftspeople from 100% natural fibres. Our Makahara jute rug is also reversible making it even more long-wearing. The chunky and tactile properties make it a great piece to place in heavily trafficked areas around the home or the office or studio space.
Colour should play a big role in choosing the ideal hallway rug. As this piece is often expected to see a lot of foot traffic, you have quite a bit of wiggle room to play with. You could choose a soft coral peach from our Turkish inspired hallway rug collection that marries traditional woven design with soft modern hues to produce a runner that won’t crowd narrow spaces or be ignored by admiring guests.

Our Turkish and Moroccan rugs range are inspired by tireless and classic exotic design.
Gradients and modern rugs are a great way to introduce light and depth to any space so if you have a narrow hallway and low natural light, a piece like our Taraz grey rug with a gentle floral motif could be just what you need to lift and enliven your hallway. The gentle gradient moves from dark grey through to ivory and can be placed to face whatever door you believe represents the journey from dark to light best.
