i just painted , wallpapered and gor a new loght for my entryway
i need arearugs. Id like a rug to be able to serve as a place to wipe shoes before coming in, but also want something decorative and pretty to make a welcoming entrance. I like the idea of washable, since it will get filthy from shoes, but my dilemma is that its a long and awkward shape. from the door to end of closet wall is 4 feet long x 3.5 feet wide .
then it opens up to 7 feet long x 5 feet wide.
should i do one long runner ( but then i worry about fitting the runner in my machine as it would be 10 feet long )
or maybe do 2 matching rugs - one at the door being 4x3 or close to it. and a second in front of steps/ tree hall in 4x6? either rectangle 4x6 or a 4, 5, or 6 round shape? that way, the smaller rug at the door would be the one that gets washed and the other rug would stay cleaner (?(
open to ideas of layout and also designs of rigs
here are pics of the space
