Simply stated, carpet runners are area rugs that have more length than usual. They are used in areas where walkways are lengthy and straight and require added protection due to heavier traffic or load levels in a specific area.
Choose a flooring store with all your best options
Most flooring stores have a great selection of runners, perfect for hallways, kitchens, or any space where the floored area is narrow and long. Stair runners also fall into this product line, but they are used on stairways and feature a different type of backing than what is used on runners.
When used in the home with carpet flooring throughout, these runners can serve as a decorative element, especially when playing up a current motif and protective features, to keep the flooring underneath from becoming worn, soiled, or damaged.
When you have hard surface flooring, these rugs can help create a warmer surface, which is often preferred in cooler climates or homes with young children or elderly persons. It also adds the safety of a more secure surface, which can eliminate the risk of slipping and falling.
To customize these pieces, choose your carpet type, shape, size, and binding, to create pieces that work specifically for your home. Our associates will be happy to work with you to create the perfect piece.
