3x5 Entry Rug

While some rugs are so big that they make you wonder how large a room you'd need to fit them, 3x5 is one of the most versatile sizes and can work virtually anywhere. A particularly popular spot, though? Your entryway, of course!

Entry Rug

The right 3x5 entry rug will smoothen the transition between outdoor and indoor in a cozy way, without overwhelming your visitors.

Depending on the layout of your home, you can also decide to place it horizontally or, in narrower but longer entryways, with its smaller side facing the door.

Do I need an entryway rug?

Entryway rugs are undoubtedly a good idea: they add a cozy touch, help you keep your floors clean, and stop your foyer from running the risk of looking a bit bland.

You can also use them to immediately showcase your good taste in décor or introduce the interior style that your guests will find in your living room.

What type of rug is best for an entryway?

In most cases, the best type of rug for entryways is any model with darker shades or a patterned design: in fact, these are the most forgiving when it comes to dirt and stains.

However, if you don't mind cleaning your rug a bit more often, you can easily opt for lighter hues and monochrome designs, too. 

Another important thing to consider is how thick they are: if your 3x5 rug will be a bit further away from your door, then you don't have to worry about it; however, if the door will open on top of it, you must make sure that it's not as tall as the gap between its bottom rail and the floor.

How do you keep an entryway rug clean?

To keep an entryway rug clean you can hoover it just like you would in other rooms, but it's also helpful to have a doormat on the other side to get rid of mud and dirt before stepping on the actual rug. 

Some entry rugs (such as all the Ruggable models that we've included) are also machine washable for extra peace of mind.
