5 places in our house that need runners and rugs

Every home needs runners and rugs. Aside from warmth and homeliness, they also have the advantage to tie a room and the colour scheme together. You can use them to divide large spaces into cosier areas too. Depending on their size and where you place them, rugs and runners can even make a room feel smaller or more spacious.

Knowing where to place a rug or runner is probably more important than what style and size you choose. They are available in a variety of styles and sizes to suit all types of taste and design requirements.  But when it comes to finding the right spot to place them, there are a few thumb rules to live by.

As a leading provider of floor rugs in Melbourne, Western Distributors is here to help you learn about the 5 places in your house where you can place runners and rugs.


Hallways are often difficult to dress up because of less availability of space. But simply placing a quality runner in the hallway can make a world of a difference in the ambience of your hallway. Runners are best-suited for such spaces for many good reasons. Adding a runner to a hallway helps a heavy-traffic area become cosier and more eye-catching.


Entryways are what your guests see first when they are entering into your home. Similar to the hallways, entryways are another perfect place for a runner or rug. By adding a stylish runner or rug, you can leave a good first impression on the visitor’s mind.


Runners can add sophistication to your stair case while protecting them from wear and tear. We know that staircases can be slippery and dangerous, especially when you are bare foot. A stylish runner can provide safety as well as add to the cosy feel when used on a staircase.


Your bedroom represents you, so it should match your style and taste. A beautiful rug that matches your aesthetic will be the final piece of the puzzle when it comes to completing this area. It will uplift the level of cosiness as well as giving a comfortable landing to your feet when you get out of bed.

Living Rooms

When it comes to living room areas, larger runners appear streamlined and make the area look spacious. Place the runner in the centre of the living room (under your coffee table) and place the front legs of your sofa and armchairs on the rug too so that the edges of rug disappear underneath the furniture. This will give your living area a cleaner and more aesthetic appearance.

Whether you want to go traditional or contemporary in style, rugs and runners come in all shapes, sizes and designs to suit any taste. Above everything, they are versatile and easy to place anywhere in the house. Simply place the runner or rug in your space, adjust its position and elevate your decor!
