Choosing a Modern Entry Rug
The hardest part of shopping for a new modern entry rug isn’t finding one you like. It’s usually picking just one of the many designs you want. And while we can’t eliminate this challenge, we can help make the process easier. The best way to find the perfect rug for your home is to identify the elements necessary for an excellent fit to narrow down your options.
Below, we’ve highlighted helpful tips for deciding what you want and need from your modern entry area rug. Keep reading to get inspired.
Color and Pattern
Look at the existing color palette and theme of your space to get an idea of the best colors and patterns for the look you’re creating. For example, you might want a bold, colorful mid-century modern entry rug to go with the rest of your MCM space. Or an abstract entry rug in muted neutral tones like grey and tan to update a chic home.
You can choose colors from the existing color palette in your space or pick ones that fit well with what you already have. Use the search filters to refine your search to the colors and styles you're looking for. If you’re adding a modern vibe to an existing style, try searching for something more specific, like a modern farmhouse entry rug.
Material and Durability
An entryway rug will usually face more traffic and element exposure than any other rug in the home. You want a material that’s durable enough for your household so that you can keep it clean for years to come. Consider how much moisture, soil, shoe traffic, and sunlight exposure your rug will face, and pick a modern indoor entryway rug that can stand up to it.
While you shop, look for materials that are well-suited to your space. For example, you might want an indoor/outdoor material if your home is very busy or if you’re decorating the exterior entryway. Or a modern wool entry rug if your space experiences low levels of traffic and exposure.
Size and Shape
Measure your entryway and pick a size and shape that will work well for your space. For example, you might want a 5’ modern round entry rug for a small square entryway. Or a modern 2x4 entry rug for an apartment entryway.
A modern entryway runner to stretch down the hall could be a good fit if you have a long and narrow space. Whatever size and shape you decide on, test it on the floor with masking tape to get an idea of how it'll fit before completing your purchase.
We recommend placing your modern entry rug on a high-quality rug pad to keep it in good condition for years to come. Rug pads protect the backing and pile from surface and friction damage, adding years to the life of your rug.
