Of course, runners are the perfect choice for decorating a hallway or stairs. In most homes there is nothing more attractive than a beautiful, long runner draped down a long, wooden staircase. There is no official definition of what a "runner" is. The term is used to describe any rug in which the length is much longer than the width, usually by a ratio of three to one or greater. The most popular runner dimension is five to one, that is, the length is five times greater than the width. Runners are the second most popular shape for area rugs, next to standard rectangles.
Not all runners have squared-off ends. You can find some very attractive and interesting rugs runners with rounded corners and some in the shape of an elongated oval. This gives you a tremendous amount of design options. Plus you will find that almost any style of traditionally shaped area rug has a complementary runner in the same colors and patterns. So no matter what the shape of the area you are decorating, you're sure to find a runner that will enhance the space.
