If so, what to choose? Should the carpet be as long as the corridor or hallway or maybe not?The traditional answer to such questions will not be difficult, howevernowadays interior designers try to be as far from tradition as possible. Changing typical and traditional solutions is a way to do things now. Choosing a strangely shaped carpet to fit in a standard room space will not be a surprise, then. However, what’s best for a narrow corridor or hallway is a carpet that fills the area, so long carpets seem to be a rational choice. Adjusting the length would be a matter of one’s taste, but what you should focus on is the type of material the carpet is woven from, the thickness and durability. Durability is obvious, due to the function of an area like a corridor or hallway. High quality product means a durable product, so there is no doubt here.Whether you choose a wool carpet or silk one –that is also a matter of one’s taste and designer’s vision.What is less obvious is the thickness of such long carpet, placed in a very first room you and your guests enter. The obvious truth is that the thicker carpet the more pleasant feel and the atmosphere and your home immediately starts to be friendly and cozy for your guests. There is nothing as delightful as stepping on a soft, mushy and comfortable surface. Add warm, vibrant colors to the structure of your long carpet and it will for sure create the best welcome for your family, friends, guests andyou, coming back home each day.
