How to Choose a Hall Runner?
When shopping for a hall runner, there are some things to consider to ensure that it is the best fit for your home.
- Measure It Up: Getting your measurements correct is very important. A hall runner that is too short or too thin will look awkward in the space, and you'll want it to be flush with doorways so you can step onto it. You will need to accommodate elements such as furniture and door clearance in your measurements too.
- Settling On A Style: Your surrounding decor, architectural elements and flooring should determine the style of your hall runner. Traditional hardwood floors look great with traditional runners, including Persian or Oriental-style ones, while geometric tiled floors often work well with contemporary runners. Similarly, the pattern of your runner needs to accentuate and create interest, rather than clash with your home decor. Think carefully about how the pattern can work for you. For instance, in smaller hallways, a striped runner could be used to visually extend the hallway, and floral patterns blend beautifully with vintage or boho homes, giving a sense of bringing the outdoors inside.
- Materials And Density: There's a lot of practicality that comes into play when choosing a hall runner because it's more than likely your rug will endure several accidents across its lifetime. Synthetic fibres - options such as acrylic rugs, polyester rugs and polypropylene rugs - are excellent for hallways because they don't absorb water the same way as natural fibres such as cotton rugs, jute rugs and wool rugs.
- Getting Into The Feel: Given that hallway runners work hard, you'll be best served by a thick carpet runner that can last you for years. But, really, the feel of the pile is a personal choice. It's very difficult to look further than a shaggy rug when it comes to feeling warm and cosy.
Hall Runner Rugs FAQs
How to clean a hall runner?
Regular cleaning and maintenance of your hall runner will ensure it lasts for years to come. We recommend weekly vacuuming to remove dust, brush out pet hair regularly and shake your rug outdoors to remove dirt. Your rug will also require deep cleaning, always refer to the care instructions and use professional rug cleaning services to avoid damage.
What is the best colour for a hallway runner?
Since hallways are high-traffic areas, choosing a darker-coloured or patterned runner is a popular choice. Classic colours such as grey, clay and copper are great options that suit a variety of home decor styles.
How to arrange runners in a hallway?
Your hall runner should be placed in the centre of your hallway and help to show the path into your home. The runner should be narrower and shorter than the actual size of your hallway.
