Originally the rug we bought for the mudroom was meant to run from door-to-door. That way whether you entered from the garage (on the left) or outside (on the right) you could still wipe your feet off. Except that the door from the garage doesn't have a built up sill so the door gets stuck on the rug.
That's why we had turned the rug and it ran into the room, way less practical.
Finally we just trimmed the rug with a pair of utility scissors, and ta da! The rug runs door-to-door, and we just need to step in a few feet to wipe our feet off, no problem.
The extra scrap winds up fitting perfectly in front of our upstairs front door. We are built into a hill, so yes, we do have two front doors.
I'm still not totally sold on the rug in front of the formal front door, not sure if it looks too utility up there, or if it blends in well enough with the floors to make it work. What do you think?
Thanks for stopping by!
