These small entryway rugs are perfect for homes of all sizes. What are you waiting for?
Rugs serve many purposes in the home, ranging from insulating against the cold to reducing echo in small spaces. By the front door of the house, they set the tone for the rest of the decor while trapping soil and moisture from dirty shoes. Small entryway area rugs are found around the world to greet guests and keep floors clean, and you'll find them in any color combination or style imaginable.
If you're not sure how you'd like to use small entryway rugs in your residence, look at the professionally-inspired ideas below to get started:
You can use small indoor entryway rugs to greet and see off guests, but you can also place them in your laundry room and at other doors. Designs range from muted to playful, with everything in between, so there's something for everyone.
For homes that see a lot of traffic, small entryway mats work well. Mats are thinner than rugs, which means that they're not as susceptible to ground in dirt and moisture damage. Many mats come in reserved neutral colors, but they're also available in a range of vibrant styles.
For apartments and houses with limited space, small round entryway mats can create the illusion of more space. The rounded edges trick the mind because of the increased distance from the wall. As a bonus, these rugs often come in fun medallion designs.
A Closer Look At Small Entryway Rugs
Small entryway area rugs are subjected to more traffic than almost any other rug in the home. These rugs see people in and out of the house every day, rain or shine. Most small entryway rugs are made from synthetic or even indoor/outdoor materials that are designed to handle elevated levels of traffic, soil, and moisture.
Research the material your rug is made from before making your purchase to ensure it'll stand up to your lifestyle and/or region.
