Long hallway runners – something you need in the middle of the night.
If your home or apartment flooring is hardwood or laminate then you know what you need at this moment: the floor runners that are comfy.
Soft, smooth and oh so plush against your toes.
No need to dash to the bathroom when walking on a long hallway rug.
Of course, if you have a pet (a dog with nails) then hearing the “click-click-click” sound is annoying too.
Having a nice rug where your pet likes to walk would help create a more Zen like atmosphere.
So, if this sounds like you, then let’s check out some extra long runners for the hallway so you never have to dash to a room or even put on socks!
Rug Runner Sizes
But first, what are typical rug runner sizes?
And what about long and extra long carpet runners for the hallways?
When it comes to hallways, the most common size rugs are 2-3 foot wide x 6-8 foot long.
These sizes are ideal for most standard hallways since they provide enough coverage without overpowering your space.
If your hallway is longer than 8 feet (around 96 inches), an extra-long runner is what you’re gonna need.
Long runners are typically defined as any runner that is 8 feet or shorter in length.
Extra long runners are any rug longer than 8 feet in length.
You might already know whether you want a long or extra long runner, but it can be helpful to measure the total length of your hallway before you make a purchase.
That way, you know how much space you have to work with and can pick the perfect fit for your room.
So, with rug sizes out of the way, let’s check out some extra long hallway runners that would look perfect in your hallway or entranceway.
Extra Long Hallway Runners
When looking for extra-long runners, choose ones made out of durable materials like wool, polyester or nylon.
These materials are not only soft on your feet but they are also hard wearing, meaning that you won’t have to worry about the runner wearing out in a few months’ time.
And this means not spending a ton of money replacing your runners! Score!
Pay attention to the padding on the underside of your extra-long hallway runner.
Look for ones with thick pads that provide cushioning and insulation from cold floors as well as sound reduction from footsteps.
Many runners come with non-slip backing so keep this in mind too – it can be a lifesaver!
Lastly, if you want something with more visual appeal than neutral shades, then there are plenty of patterned options available too so take some time browsing the selections until you find one that works for you.
So, here they are!
1. A Boho Style Runner
I LOVE this Boho style runner for the hallway.
This Boho style runner is an absolute must-have for anyone needing a cushy runner.
The extra long hallway rug is thin, making it not as comfortable to stand on as more plush carpets.
But it’s aesthetically pleasing and a vibe for your place.
It’s easily washable, which is nice when dirt builds up over time – I’ve had no issues with washing my rug in the machine yet!
Like I said, I’m obsessed with this carpet: vibrant and rich colors, and the designs are bangin.’
And although I initially thought the rug might become worn out or cheap-looking after being washed, I was pleasantly surprised to find that not only did it come out just as beautiful as before; it was also much cleaner!
Plus, since this particular runner is machine washable, you don’t have to worry about any intense maintenance process – all you need to do is throw it into your washing machine when needed.
2. A Hint of Rainbow
This is the PERFECT hallway runner if you are a bit missy with spills!
This multi-colored extra long hallway runner will surely bring a cheerful vibe your dull hallway!
The larger size is surprisingly easy to straighten out and lay down flat, making it perfect for that long hallway of yours.
It’s a great value for the price too; it fits perfectly with any living room decor (or bedroom style), and the look complements any vibe you may have.
Not only that, but it also feels incredibly soft underfoot – making it a great accent piece for any home. It’s also incredibly easy to clean due to its thin material and low pile height.
3. Go Neutral
You can’t go wrong with neutral colors for your hallway runner rug.
This is best for any apartment decor, and it’s incredibly easy to spot clean.
It’s big enough to cover a large space, and the thickness of this rug is more than the 3mm described; it will feel thick and soft underfoot for those late-night bathroom trips!
The rug is bright with vibrant colors, and I LOVE the eye-catching design.
Plus, rather than being printed or dyed, this rug is loomed from high-quality materials – a sign of its durability.
Not only is it strong enough to handle the foot traffic of a hallway, but it offers great value for money too.
4. Pure Black
This hallway runner has a rubber backing making it anti-slip and a great option for your small apartment.
A definite looker this rug is!
Since black isn’t a common rug color, you’ll surly surprise your guests when they stop over, but will instantly fall in love with the comfy feel and no slip feature!
5. Oriental Style
You can always go classic with this oriental styled runner.
These are some of the best types of long hallway carpet runners you’ll find when searching one for yourself.
Because they stand out but also match any decor elements in your place.
The best of both worlds!

To find the right color and geometric shape hallway runner, check out these tips:

- Geometric designs come in all kinds of shapes and sizes – from circles and hexagons to stars and diamonds – so have fun playing around with which ones work best for your hallway.
- Establishing a pattern with multiple shapes can give it an extra oomph and make it really pop. And if you’re looking for an eye-catching statement piece, go big with a large shape like an oval or rectangle!

8. Go Contemporary
Alright, here’s a gorgeous contemporary hallway runner!
This is perfect for any hallway and is super comfortable to walk on.
The rug will arrive well packed as a roll, and once unpacked you’ll notice were some folding marks at the end of the rug, even after a few days. So, it may take a few days to flatten out.
The rug is beautiful and fits perfectly in hallways up to 14 feet long.
It can really make a space look bigger than it actually is due because it’s long, making it BEST for small or narrow spaces.
One great thing is that it’s incredibly easy to clean and maintain, with regular vacuuming being enough to keep it looking as good as new.

One thing to note is that the rug is thin and may take a while to flatten out.
10. Contemporary Grey Hallway Rug
This is one extra long runner for the hallway! Clocking in at 11 feet it’s perfect for narrow hallways.
The unique pattern adds an extra layer of texture, which means it can hide all the dust and dirt that tends to track all over.
That means you no longer have to worry about having to vacuum every day just to keep it clean – the rug does the job all by itself!
Non Slip Runner Rugs
Non slip runner rugs for an apartment can be a better option so that you don’t trip when walking on your rug.
While they are an investment, they are worth the money if you want to make sure your hallway is safe and slip-free.
Latex rubber backings are usually used on non-slip carpets since they provide better grip than regular carpets do – preventing any slips that could lead to injury or worse!
So, let’s check out these anti slip hallway runners.

The rug’s non-slip backing means that no matter how much traffic goes through the hallway, the rug won’t get pushed out of place or start curling up on the ends. It really adds a level of safety when walking through your hallway since you don’t have to worry about slipping on any loose carpets or mats.
On top of that, it’s very easy to clean as all you need is a vacuum cleaner or broom and you’re good to go!
