Hallway runner rugs: because first impressions count…

Posted on 02 September 2015
Have you ever entered a house and had all sorts of cold feelings about it? If so, you certainly won’t want to make the same mistake in your own home. But where do you begin? Well, we suggest you choose from a fine selection of hallway runner rugs.

Hallway runner rugs: Picking the right one

As people always say: first impressions count. That’s why it’s important to choose a hallway runner rug that reflects your style and taste. Indeed, it’s a good idea to buy something that is particularly ‘you’ in order to make a good first impression on your guests.

Traditional yet modern look
This Mahal runner is the ideal rug for those who love traditional and accustomed interior design style but like modern items at the same time. This design, despite being a traditional one, is easily paired with modern interiors.

Eclectic style
Are you a connoisseur of the world? Do you like striking and expressive items? If so, this Antique Caucasian Karabagh Runner is one of the best you can find. The Armenian runner dates back to the 1890s and presents a very intricate design. It contains floral motifs together with horses and knights, plus a border decorated with geometric patterns. The original figures and the precision-detail make it the perfect fit for an unconventional yet appealing interior design scheme.

• Formal style
Are you passionate about period furniture? Do you love the classy and formal finishing? If so, you’ll almost certainly be a fan of the Traditional Persian Yalameh . The bold red and blue colours are in line with the formal style. The geometric designs also contribute to the overall impression.

• Country home
If you own a beautiful home in the countryside, or if your home is decorated in the country style, you have a number of options. However, always be careful when it comes to colours. You should stay away from traditional rugs with very intense dark and bold colours. That is because they will diminish your light and airy, rustic style. Instead, try to find a rare piece, possibly antique, with light brownish colours.

Take a look at this Antique Persian Sarab (c. 1890 Persia). It brings a distinctly Persian flavour thanks to the patterns, but at the same time maintains a fresh look due to the bright beige.

Now that you know the importance of a runner at the main entrance to your home, you may want to add some small ornaments to improve the aesthetic of your entrance.

Here are some suggestions to keep in mind:

• Shoes should be banned. Never allow family members to leave shoes at the front door – you could end up with 30 pairs dumped there.
• Flowers are appreciated by visitors, although fake ones do not make a good impression. Flowers are incredibly powerful when it comes to creating a pleasing aesthetic. Therefore, placing a bunch of flowers in a vase in the main entrance is an effective tactic.
• Mirrors make a BIG statement. We all know that a mirror make a room feel bigger, so why not take advantage of this attribute? If possible always opt for a full length one.
