I have a steadfast rule about this type of home furnishing, and that's don't spend real money for it. If you do, it just invites conflict. Someone spills something, drops something, dribbles something, and next thing you know it's "Look what you've done to my rug." No no no. I have tiny grandchildren, and so I won't buy a rug I cannot afford to replace. Family first, then furnishings.
That said, I had a surprisingly hard time finding a runner. I had expected to go with a solid neutral color, but a beige would be too close to the color of the floor--blah--and we had painted a wall a shade of blue that was hard to coordinate. A blue gray won't work there, and neither will a royal blue. It came down to two (cheap) striped runners that would work in this space, and we went with this one. When it came, it was packaged in a transparent plastic bag and I said, What have I done? This is ugly. But once it was out of the bag and placed in the hallway, I completely changed my mind. It works great with the wall and since there's no other busy color there, it adds interest. We are very pleased.
The synthetic used to make it is fairly heavy and doesn't require a pad; it's got a nonslip back and stays where I want it.
I have given this rug four stars because of course, you can spend more money and get a nice natural fabric of some sort. But of course, then you'd have to spend more money. If you want an expensive-looking rug, it's most likely going to be expensive. So as cheap rugs go, this is really a five, but because there are house-proud people out there that should not be misled, I am calling it four.
We liked it and bought another from Sim to go in front of the dishwasher. Then there was that empty spot in front of the stove. Yeah, we bought a third one. Each time delivery was within a few days.
We could have saved 12 bucks on shipping if we had bought them all at once. In any case, Sim was no more expensive than the "prime" option - which never came.
Now for that spot in front of the refrigerator.
