What Are Runners & Why Do You Need One?
While this may seem like an obvious placement for a runner rug, some don't think they need one. However, not only are runners great for aesthetic purposes, but they can help to keep your feet warm during cold mornings and can help to reduce noise.
Bright Oriental runners can bring a dash of extra light to an otherwise dark hallway - making a space seem much larger through the contrast.
Runner rugs on stairs are a great way to bring some additional color to your home. They are also great to reduce noise that occurs from people walking up and down stairs. If you do end up choosing an Oriental rug for your stairs, be sure to choose one that is made of durable wool as silk may be too delicate for an area with such high-traffic.
Whether you place your runner in your room, in the kitchen or in your hallway, you'll be confident in your decision that the runner will enhance your house and add value and warmth to your home.
