Living Room or Bedroom
Try using a 2x7 runner rug in your living room or bedroom to pad a walking path and better define the room. In the bedroom, this might mean framing your bed with two runners or placing one at the foot of the bed. This could look like a runner alongside the back of the couch on the walkway leading to the kitchen in the living room.
Cotton, wool, and other natural fibers will add beautiful texture to your rooms, enhancing their visual appeal. But always remember to pick a rug that’s durable enough for your space.
Placing a 2x7 rug runner in the entryway of your home protects this heavily trafficked area from early signs of wear on the floor. You’ll want a durable rug that can stand up to the moisture and shoe traffic in your home. Also, look for a rug that matches your home's style so that it sets the mood for the rest of your place.
An outdoor option can work well in an exterior entryway, but outdoor rugs also work well for indoor entrances with high exposure.
A 2x7 bathroom runner rug works well in narrow half bathrooms, commonly used as the guest bathroom. This long, thin rug can pad most of the space in front of the toilet and/or sink, depending on the space's floorplan.
Consider how much moisture exposure the rug will face—this will be higher if there is a bathtub or shower in the room—and pick your material accordingly. For bathrooms with high levels of traffic or moisture, indoor/outdoor rugs are a good option.
You can use 2x7 kitchen runner rugs in front of the sink or any other working areas to protect both your feet and the floor. Runners like this work well in small apartment kitchens or in narrow walkways created by kitchen islands.
Look for a 2x7 runner rug with the durability to stand up to messes, moisture, and regular cleaning. An indoor/outdoor rug is an excellent option for busier homes, as it'll be more resistant to heavy traffic and use.
