How To Choose A Rug For Foyer?

How To Choose A Rug For Foyer?

Your foyer contains the opening notes to the song of your home through hints of color, tone and personality. There are a few things to consider when choosing a rug, and your own personal style preference is arguably at the top of the list. When it comes to your home’s entryway, you’re going to want to keep a few other factors in mind as you shop. Shape, size, material and appearance are all important criteria to apply to your options as you narrow down your choices for the best in show.

Size

The most common sizes for entry ways / Foyers are 4’x6 to 6’x9’, but it depends on the size of the room of course, and the furnishings you have placed.  It is common for people to ignore entryways, which is a mistake.  This is the first impression of the house and should receive special attention.

Thickness

The entryway is also the area where the thickness of the rug comes into play; where ever a door is opening over a rug, make sure the door has enough clearance; wooden doors inside a house can usually be shaved to create more room under them, but the ones opening towards the outside of the house are very difficult to shave.

Color

Solid-colored rugs are a great way to make a subtle impact. There are a few ways you can accomplish this. Your walls may be simple with a solid-colored rug in a contrasting color to please the eye, or you can add a patterned rug in amazing vibrant colors.

Finally, no matter what kind of rug you end up choosing, it’s a good idea to stick a non-slip rug pad underneath if your entryway floor is a slick material such as hardwood or tile. A rug pad grips the rug in place and keeps it from shifting under foot traffic.

The customer service here is impeccable, Amanda spent so much time with us designing our spaces. I couldn’t be happier with the result. We shopped around, but this is by far The most professional store in Scottsdale. Her husband Sam knew all the history about the pieces we purchased which I really appreciated. I highly recommend this store

Sameer is very well versed on his knowledge of rugs, I came just to browse and left with 3 Moroccan rugs. Not only was he super attentive while I was in the store, but his knowledge made the whole process effortless. Highly recommend, for hand woven rugs there’s no other place in the valley, hell in the country, I’d go!
