This is a beautiful rug. Purchased 31"Wx47"L for front door and the first time I came into the house after laying it I stepped over it, so as not to step on it. This is just too nice to have people wipe their feet on. Have been trying to figure out how to use this in a short 9' hallway but the sizes provided don't cooperate. Will find a way to make it work though, but this is a well-made soft rug that should never be placed inside the doorway of your home. It's just too pretty.
