Best Rug Size For an Entryway Or Mudroom

| Team Tumble

When it comes to your entryway and mudroom, finding the perfect rug size can enhance both the aesthetics and functionality of these high-traffic areas. The right rug size not only adds style and warmth to your entryway but also helps protect your floors from dirt, moisture, and debris. Additionally, opting for a machine washable rug offers numerous benefits in terms of convenience and easy maintenance.

When selecting a rug size for your entryway rug, consider the available space. A rug that is too small may get lost in the area, while one that is too large can overwhelm the space. Ideally, choose a size that allows for a border of flooring to show around the edges of the rug, providing a visually pleasing balance.

For a narrow entryway, a washable runner rug can be an excellent choice. A runner rug adds a sense of elongation to the space while protecting the high-traffic pathway. Ensure that the runner rug spans the length of the entryway and leaves enough room for the door to open and close without any obstructions.

In a larger entryway or mudroom, consider a larger washable area rug that can accommodate both functional and aesthetic needs. A larger rug size can define the space and create a welcoming atmosphere. It provides ample coverage for wiping feet, removing shoes, and keeping the dirt contained to the rug.

Washable Rugs For Entryways And Mudrooms

At Tumble, we don’t recommend just any area rug for your entryway and mudroom. Instead, we highly recommend a spillproof rug or a machine washable rug. Fortunately, our unique washable rug designs blend spillproof rug technology with a machine washable rug structure so you can have the best of both worlds when decorating these heavily trafficked areas in your home! 

Because your entryway or mudroom often sees a lot of outdoor to indoor foot traffic, the chance of tracking in dirt, debris, and other outside elements is significantly higher than in any other part of the house. These areas are prone to dirt, mud, and spills, making easy cleaning a top priority. A machine washable rug allows you to quickly and conveniently clean it whenever necessary, ensuring a fresh and hygienic entryway. Plus, with Tumble’s spillproof rug technology, any water, snow, or other liquid debris that gets tracked in will simply bead up on the surface for easy cleanup, rather than absorbing into the fabric and leaving a stain behind. 

Additionally, our washable area rugs are designed to withstand the rigors of heavy use and frequent washing. They are typically made from durable materials that can withstand machine cycles without losing their shape or color. This durability ensures that your rug will maintain its appearance and quality over time, even with regular washing. But, don’t just take our word for it; read why customers love our washable rugs, too! 

3x5 Rug Size For Entryways And Mudrooms

3x5 rug size for entryway

For most entryways and mudrooms, a 3x5 rug size will be the best option. This is our smallest area rug, making it perfect for placing just in front of your front door to add a welcoming touch to your entryway without being too big and overwhelming the space. Or, if you’re looking for a rug for your mudroom, a 3x5 rug is also a great option because it will easily fit inside the room while still leaving enough space around the edges so that the area doesn’t begin to feel cramped or cluttered. 

Washable area rug for homes with Modern design style: Fez — Sand/Multi

Why our customers love it: “First thing we noticed is how soft it is - wonderful! The corner pocket idea is great, as is making it a big big so it will still fit over the corners when it shrinks a bit. Super soft on our feet, and even with dogs running in across it from outside and then eating treats on it, one throw into the wash and it looks like new.” — Lorian G.

Runner Rugs For Entryways And Mudrooms

Washable runner rug for homes with Traditional design style: Amara — Blush/Grey

Why our customers love it: “Love the color! Super easy install! Mat is super comfortable to stand on and gives great support. I have seen the water bead up on the top of the rug and wipe up. Cleans so easily!” — Kayle Danae P.
