Is A Purple Runner Rug Right For Me?
Use the color wheel to make sure purple can fit with your existing decor colors. Think about different shades and tones to find a purple that complements your home's design--you can always search for online photos for inspiration. Because runner rugs usually sit in entryways and hallways, they need to go with everything in the house, not just one room.
The following tips will help you find the right rug for your space:
Measure carefully. Runners shouldn't come closer than 6 to 12 inches to your wall. If your runner is too big, it'll look cramped. Likewise, though, if your rug is small compared to your space, it can make your area look awkward.
Pick a material. Will your runner be in a high-traffic area exposed to dirt and moisture (like the entryway)? If so, you'll want a more durable material that can stand up to traffic and cleaning.
Select a thickness. If your rug will sit under where a door swings, measure the space between your door and the floor. This measurement will tell you how thick your rug can be.
