Below, we’ve outlined some of our favorite ways to use a 3x10 rug runner throughout the home. Keep reading if you’d like more inspiration.
Using 3x10 kitchen runner rugs is a great way to add color, padding, and protection to the heart of your home. They work well in narrow galley-style kitchens but also layouts with a center island. With 10' of length, you should be able to pad the floor in front of the sink, cutting board, stove, and more.
Both indoor and outdoor entryways can benefit from a 3x10 outdoor runner. Outdoor rugs can be used inside too, and they're made with durable fibers that are treated to withstand higher exposure levels. This is an excellent option for busy homes or those who live in wet climates.
A 3x10 runner mat can provide the padding and safety you need on your stairs. Measure carefully to make sure you don't need more length because 10' will only cover a smaller staircase. And make sure to use double-sided tape for both the pad and runner to keep everything in place.
With so many 3x10 runner rugs to choose from, you’re probably eager to get back to shopping by now. To make sure you buy exactly what you need, we’ve included some tips that might prove useful below:
Measure Carefully: Measure your space carefully to be sure you have room for a 3x10 runner. You need a minimum of 5’x12’ to accommodate a runner of this size, which will allow you to keep 12” of exposed floor between the rug and the walls. Ideally, a 3x10 runner would be placed in a space that’s 7’x14’ to keep 24" of the floor exposed.
Consider Durability: Think about durability before you decide on a rug. Look for one that’s made from a material that you can keep clean for years to come. This means considering the levels of soil, moisture, sunlight, and shoe traffic that your rug will be exposed to.
Get a Rug Pad: Pads prevent sliding damage to the backing and pile of your rug. We recommend adding a rug pad to your cart before you check out with your new 3x10 rug runner. It can add years to the life of your purchase.
