How To Choose A Rug For Entryway

You only get one chance to make a great first impression. Make sure your entryway reflects the style and vibe of your home with a sensational rug. If you’re wondering how to choose a rug for your entryway, we have all of the answers to your burning questions and tips for choosing a rug you’re sure to love. We’ll help you to find the best type of rug for your front door.

What Size Should An Entryway Rug Be?

The rule of thumb for rug size is to allow at least 18”-24” of floor space between the wall and the edge of the rug. However, smaller rooms can get away with less.

What Material Is Best For An Entryway Rug?

Your entryway rug will receive a lot of wear and tear. The entryway is a high traffic area with a lot of dirt and moisture. Be sure to choose a material that will handle anything.

How Can I Protect My Carpet At The Front Door?

A rug is a great way to protect flooring near your front door from dirt, snow, rain and sunshine. We also recommend placing a door mat outside your front door so people can wipe their feet before they come in. Placing a small bench near the front door reminds visitors to take off their shoes, which helps to preserve rugs, carpet and flooring. Place a high quality rug pad under your entryway rug to keep the rug from shifting, sliding or bunching. The extra cushion is not only a pleasure underfoot but also helps to extend the life of your rug.
