Enhance the Sophistication of Your Home With Bijan’s Runner Rugs

If you want to decorate your hallway without spending much on hardwood flooring or to protect your floor from damage, consider using runner rugs. Luckily, at Bijan, we have specially designed our Persian hall runners to safeguard your flooring.

Whether you’re looking for an oversized Persian Rug or a smaller beautiful Shiraz rug, we feature the widest range to choose from.

How to Choose a Persian Hall Runner?

It is important to remember that runner rugs should always be matched to the shape of your hallway. At Bijan, our hallway runners come in various lengths and widths.

The standard runner rug is between two to three feet wide and can range from six to fourteen feet long. Ideally, four to five inches of flooring should be visible on all sides of your runner rug. It is important to achieve a defined path rather than trying to fill up every corner.

What Makes Runner Rugs Special?

Runner rugs are rectangular rugs that are longer in size. These runners are usually placed in high-traffic areas to protect the flooring from damage. Along with protecting the floor, they can also add to the design of a narrow space.

To find a rug that is welcoming, resistant to dirt and can handle heavy usage, visit Bijan. We offer a wide variety of Persian hall runners, so you have plenty of options to choose from when buying runner rugs. We strive to ensure that you find the one that’s perfect for your home. And if you are after a true bargain, don’t forget to browse our Persian rugs on sale.

History of Runner Rugs

Antique and traditional runner rugs were first used in Victorian England. Local weavers learned to hand-tuft rugs instead of importing Turkish rugs and Persian carpets. The English upper classes, including the landed gentry, royalty, and nobility, owned multiple rugs and scattered them throughout their homes in London and the countryside. Runner rugs and carpets were specially made to comfort the residents walking in the halls and navigating the uneven staircases.

People used to use square rugs to decorate several home areas, such as hallways, entryways, stairs, porches, and bathrooms. With the advent of technology, laying a modern rug as well as a runner rug has become a more convenient way to enhance style, comfort, and cleanliness.

We have over 5,000 rugs in stock; the listings on this site represent a small selection of our extensive range. Please visit us in store to explore our collections.
