Vintage VernacularTransitional Entry, Sydney
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Take larger area rugs and removable pillow covers to be professionally cleaned. If you have wall-to-wall carpeting, have it professionally cleaned or rent a carpet cleaner and do it yourself. Drapery and upholstery that cannot be cleaned by another method can usually be safely steam cleaned using a real steam cleaner designed to be safe for textiles — not a carpet shampooer or hard-flooring steam cleaner. (Always check for care directions and test a spot first.)
What Houzzers are commenting on:
If you yearn for something softer underfoot in your entryway, a runner can be a great addition. Style-wise, a traditional design in soft, muted colours would work well in a classic home, while a contemporary interior gives you free license to have fun with colour and pattern – think bold stripes or a bright, artisan runner. If your entryway leads onto a very long hallway, don’t be afraid to use more than one runner or rug. Tip: Extend the life of your runner by rotating it every so often to even out wear and tear.
