The entrance into your home is the first greeting a guest receives at the door, the first peek impression of your space. But a hallway can be a difficult space to perfect — how do you make narrow dimensions feel warm and welcoming, imbued with the personality of you and your family? The perfect rug can go a long way in setting up your space and creating a welcoming entrance. Here are some examples we’ve found around the web:

This foyer is bright and warm, setting the stage for a neat and well thought out home by matching the rug to the front door and the vase on the side table.

This entryway mingles simplicity with bohemian vibes, letting the warm colors in the patterned runner bring out the natural warmth of the wood and woven basket.

This entryway’s warm rug works similarly, but the dark door, lampshade, and other accents work with the dark navy elements of the rug pattern to create a more dramatic feel. The pink and reds in the rug keep the hallway from feeling severe.

This black and white mudroom keeps things simple and organized. The space looks crisp and together, but the striped runner adds a playful element.

Talk about playful! The colorful, geometric rug in this hallway really brightens up this entry.
