It's one thing to live in an apartment or home, and it's another to make it feel like a home. There are quite a few ornaments and textiles that capture that "homey" feeling we all know and love, and a hallway runner is certainly one of them. Whether it be the entryway, hallway, kitchen, or bathroom, runner rugs come in handy in all sorts of places. In particular, we love a rug as soon as you walk inside — it makes you feel cosy right off the bat.

If you're in the market for a new runner rug to warm up your home, you've come to the right place. We gathered some of the finest options on the market that, in our opinion, will add the perfect accent to your home. From vintage rugs to loomed rugs to checkerboard designs and Persian-inspired styles, there are so many long and narrow rugs on the market that we're loving.

We turned to Target, Ruggable, and more retailers to ensure these rugs would not only look good, but last a while in your home. Find ahead the very best hallway runner rugs that we're eyeing for ourselves and give them a try inside your quarters.
