Hallway runners often fall to the bottom of the list when shopping for rugs for your home, but despite their smaller size, they can have a truly transformative effect on any long, narrow space. Runners add colour and texture to sections of your home that are otherwise empty and can connect transitional areas of the home through shared colour and pattern. In addition to pleasing aesthetics, hallway runners also offer a number of practical benefits including absorbing noise and protecting flooring in high traffic areas.
West Elm Canada's collection of hallway runners includes options in every style, pattern and colour imaginable. From bold, abstract designs in vibrant colours to vintage-look rugs in more muted tones, there is something for every design style from traditional to ultra-modern. Regardless of the style, all of these runners are perfect for muffling footsteps in hallways lined with bedrooms and for adding colour and warmth to entryways or other transitional spaces. The collection also includes runners that make ideal kitchen rugs, which are great for adding cushioning that can make a world of difference during long hours spent at the stove and sink.
Once you've chosen the perfect runner for your space, you'll want to be sure to pick up a rug pad to ensure that your hallway rug stays securely in place. The runners available at West Elm Canada come in 2.5' x 7', 2.5' x 9' and 2.5' x 12, so you'll want a similarly sized rug pad. Read on for more about just a few of the many hallway rugs in the West Elm Canada collection.
Sun-Kissed Landscape Easy Care Rug - The durable nylon yarns of this handcrafted rug make it shed-resistant and tough enough for high-traffic areas. The beautiful printed pattern adds rich colour and a sense of movement to any space.
Flourish Rug - Available in Pearl Grey and Dusty Blue, this rug is made of a plush blend of wool and viscose, which gives it a soft, well-cushioned feeling underfoot. The lightly distressed, muted pattern calls to mind Persian-style floral rugs.
Indra Rug - The flatweave of this rug makes it highly durable, less prone to shedding and ideal for high-traffic areas. Handcrafted from a blend of viscose and cotton, the rug has a subtle sheen that adds depth to the intricate pattern.
Side Stripe Jute Rug - Known for its sturdiness and durability, jute is a great, eco-friendly choice for a hallway rug. The Side Stripe Jute Rug takes advantage of jute's natural fibre appearance by incorporating its texture into the rug's pattern to create an earthy, boho look.
