I have just purchased a floor runner for entrance but now not sure if it is to long or really works in this space. I have attached photos with runner and without.
Looks beautiful Debbie.
Really like the look with the runner. A wonderful welcoming entry hall. Not only does it look good, but it helps get all sand etc of shoes. Otherwise the sand would be left on your fabulous floors.
I like the runner. However, it does look a bit odd because it's off-set from the door.
I'd keep it.
Help with Entrance - Dead Zone!
Need urgent help with floor plan!
Critique our floor plan!
I know that’s what I thought as well, I think because our front entrance door has the glass on one side should have looked at that when we built. I just tried to measure so it’s the same width from both walls. I probably should have gone wider than 80cm but was hard to find one wider.
even though you've placed it in the middle try it a bit more under the table. it seems a bit precarious with the delicate legs
Thank you I’ve moved the runner over so it’s in line with the actual door. Have attached a couple of photos I feel it looks better.
It looks great in the new position. :)
Love the rug! Can I ask where you purchased it from?
Thank you purchased online through Simple Style Co it’s called the Bodrum Grey and Ivory runner its has a bit of a silver tone in the diamonds.
I'll be the dissenting voice -- I think its slightly too wide , and slightly too long , AND looks better in the first picture .
Why would you put a rug ( or runner ) under table legs ? Especially when its then 'off-centre' too ? I always had this strange idea that runners were for walking on , and looking good , and balancing a room .
The 'after' picture looks weird IMO , plus it almost looks like an obstacle course -- follow the runner and you either have to walk out and around the table , on the floor ; or you risk losing your hip .
Just me , I'm probably weird , but I go for visuals and function any day .
in the photo it looks better lined up with the door and more balanced with the table. But I do agree that it may be annoying to walk in.
Try the table on opp side of hall. It would cost much to shorten the rug.
If you could put the table on the opposite wall it would balance everything...at the moment the runner and the table are both on one side.
I have a similar entry. We went with a shorter rug right at the door. (Sand etc) Further down we have a longer rug about the same size as your, past the table and into the next section. Your entry is way more stylish.
yes you could host try a wider shorter rug in the entry and move this one up to the next section
Still prefer the very first picture, with centre of hallway placement.Can I ask how many people are going to stand at the end of the hallway, and say, " your floor rug isn't in line with your door"When you enter the front door, normal human behaviour would be to via to the right a bit in order to close the door. Then walk down the centre of your hallway, on the rug that is positioned in the centre of the hallway.
Thanks for your comments I have actually moved table Cross to other wall, the mirror also I think looks better on that wall.
Well done. The rug looks the perfect size now. Love it. You’ve made great choices
Thank you for your comments, I have actually left it how I originally had it. I think from my photo everyone thinks the table is close to the door but there is plenty of room to move and open door without getting close to table. And as you said people aren’t going to stand back and say hey your rug isn’t lined up with the door. everything doesn’t have to be perfect this is my home not a display home and if something isn’t quite right, well I think there is more important things going on in the world than my rug not lining up to the door.
Beautifully said Debbie.
