Did you know that 3x5 entryway rugs come in dozens of style, material, and color combinations? There's something for every home so you can make the first impression you've always dreamed of making.
Why A 3x5 Entryway Area Rug?
A 3x5 entryway area rug is ideal for a 5x7 room, which is the standard size for a mudroom or entrance in most Western homes. These rugs protect the flooring of your most trafficked area from damage and set the tone for the rest of your house.
Entryway rugs don’t need to conform to anything other than the size of the area. Most rectangular rugs will serve the purpose well enough. However, these rugs are usually thin to medium thickness, because thicker materials don’t stand up to high traffic as well.
With a list that long, there’s a perfect 3x5 runner rug for every home, no matter what your taste is. Many of them are available in neutral or universal colors like grey, which means that they can also stand the test of time as you cycle through decor styles in your place.
Remember, your entryway rug sets the tone for your home. Interior designers will often use bold designs on the rug because 3x5 is a small space, meaning it’s safe to go a little wild and fun in this space.
A Closer Look at 3x5 Entryway Rugs
Entryway rugs have been popular in homes for hundreds—if not thousands—of years. They bring comfort and personality to the place where you take off your shoes, wipe your feet, hang your coat, and come into the house.
Entryway rugs are also the first and last thing your house guests see and thus have a tremendous impact on how people think of your home.
Whether you want your home to seem sophisticated or playful, you can set the tone with the right entryway rug.
Is a 3x5 Entryway Area Rug Right for Me?
As we noted earlier, 3x5 entryway area rugs are ideal for 5x7 rooms. They can crowd smaller rooms and look out of place in larger spaces.
If you have the right size space for the rug, you will find the perfect option. The following tips will help you figure out what you need:
Consider your home’s existing style. Your rug should complement your existing décor, so it doesn’t clash. While you can get experimental with the design, make sure it fits your color palette.
Measure under your door. You need to know how much space you have under your door if it'll swing over the rug. If the rug is thicker than your door's height from the floor, the door will catch on it or move the rug out of place when it opens.
Choosing the Perfect Entryway Rug
Use the search filters to select the right thickness and style before you search. This will help you find the right rug for your home, no matter what.
Don't forget to select a quality pad, so the rug stays put no matter how much traffic your home sees!
