Hallway Runners: Yes or No?

Should you put a runner in your hallway? 

19 September 2017 -

One of the questions we get the most is, “Does my hallway need a runner? Keep it simple or dress it up?” Using a rug or runner can be the easiest way to add character to your home. They bring color, pattern, and create a comfy, cozy feeling on hardwood flooring. They also protect your floors from wear and tear and we all know the hallway receives plenty of traffic.

But a hallway feels grand, open and clean without a runner. This is convenient when a hallway is smaller and more compact. Sometimes you have to let the wall decor do the talking. Our final verdict? Depends on the home. Here are some of our favorite hallways, take a look and see what you think about runners.
