Well Woven's 2x5 runners are long and narrow rectangular rugs designed to fit your narrow spaces. Made for your hallways, stairways, kitchen floors and more, their purpose is to add both functionality and style to high-traffic areas in your home, while protecting your floors.
Choosing the best 2x5 Runner
Choosing the perfect 2x5 foot runner rug for your home can be daunting, but we're here every step of the way. Consider these factors when shopping for an accent runner rug:
Rug Pile: Consider the rug pile and choose a height based on your lifestyle and preferences. Low-pile runner rugs like flatwoven, washable runner rugs or 2x5 outdoor runners, are easier to clean and are ideal for high-traffic areas, while plush runner rugs offer a comforting feel to cozy spaces.
Rug Material: Opt for synthetic runner rug materials like polypropylene for stain resistance or natural fibers like jute or recycled cotton for a more eco-friendly choice. Let your needs and personal preference guide you to the best 2x5 rug runner for your home.
Rug Colors: A 2x5 runner in blue or a light, neutral color is great if you want a versatile and timeless look that complements any decor style. Alternatively, dark toned or gray runner rugs make a statement to your hallway or kitchen while hiding dirt and debris.
Rug Style: If your interior is more traditional, opt for classic patterns like a 2x5 vintage runner with medallions. For more contemporary and ecclectic spaces, go for colorful or abstract runner rugs. Don't be afraid to mix and match your rugs until you find what you love.
Rug Safety: Nonslip 2x5 runner rugs or runners with rug pads underneath can increase safety in high-traffic areas. They have the added benefit of keeping your runner rug in place on more slippery floors!
Placing a 2x5 Runner Rug
Runner rugs 2x5 or larger are best kept in long, narrow spaces that see high traffic.
2x5 Hallway Runner Rug
Aim for your hallway runner rug to be about 4 to 6 inches narrower than the width of the hallway to allow some floor space on each side. As for the length, it should cover most of the hallway, leaving a few inches of floor visible at each end. Remember to ensure the pile of your hallway runner rug is low enough that it doors can glide over without catching.
2x5 Kitchen Runner Rug
2x5 kitchen runner rugs add functionality and style to the heart of the home. In a galley kitchen and in a kitchen with an island, lay 2x5 runners parallel to the long walls of the room to create a visual path that guides the eye through the space. In an L-shaped layout, position the runner rug along the counter to unify the space. In a U-shaped kitchen, lay the 2x5 rug in the central part, leaving enough space on either side to maintain a balanced and open feel.
2x5 Bathroom Runner Rug
Runner rugs in the bathroom add safety, comfort, and style to the room while protecting the floors from wear and tear. Ensure your 2x5 bathroom runner rug covers the length of the room, leaving about a 6-inch border of surrounding bare floor, for an aesthetically pleasing fit.
