Let's Talk About Rug Runners

Typically, rug runners are designed not for beauty but for practical uses. They are often used on stairs, in entryways, and by many businesses to help reduce the amount of dirt that gets into a showroom or office carpet. Runners are long, narrow rectangles, usually with non-skid backing and most often made in a solid color. They are also ideal for covering hardwood floors in hallways.

Runners can, however, be as beautiful as any carpet in your home. They come in Oriental patterns, Aubusson, contemporary styles, and more as well as a wide variety of striking colors. Many online carpet vendors will make custom runners to match the carpeting in your home.

Rug Runners Online

If you plan to search the Internet for a runner for your home or office, simply go to any carpeting website. Nearly all of them will have a list by type of the rugs they sell. When used for businesses or entryways, runners made of Olefin are the most popular. These cut pile mats help wipe the dirt and water from shoes before they end up on the carpet.

When searching for a runner for your stairs, hallway, or home entryway, it's important to use the same care that you would when you shop for any rugs. Stairs and entryway runners must be able to take a lot of wear, and they must be durable and easy to clean. You will find a variety of styles and a wide range of prices for runners online. Be sure to look for sales and discounts.
