If you have a beautiful hardwood floor in your Flemington home, you know that one of the most interesting ways to play with hardwood design is to add carpeting into the mix. And while most people are familiar with the advantages of using an area rug, there’s another fantastic option that shouldn’t be overlooked: carpet runners.
There are so many different styles of carpet flooring, it’s not a surprise if you’ve never heard of a carpet runner. That’s why the experts at Floor Coverings International Hillsborough are here to give you a quick and thorough rundown of these attractive, functional flooring pieces.
What is a Carpet Runner?
A carpet runner, sometimes referred to simply as a “runner,” is a type of long rug. Carpet runners tend to be narrow, but come in a variety of lengths and widths. Most people use carpet runners in hallways or on stairs in order to improve traction and/or to add an attractive design element to the room. However, the way you use a runner is up to you! Put one in your kitchen to make things feel a little cozier, or use multi-directional runners to create a sense of cohesion between rooms in your Flemington home.
Why Should I Use a Carpet Runner?
- Available in custom sizes and shapes to fit your space
- Wide selection of carpet material and style
- Creates a comfortable standing surface
- Increases traction on slippery surfaces like hardwood and tile
- Visually divides space without actually separating the room
- Provides temperature and noise insulation
