Q: We recently bought a beautiful Mid-century modern home with a 40' by 3.5' hallway. I bought four 8-foot runners rather than one long one to break up the length [photo below]. The design I picked adds movement to this very linear space. I am wondering if I made the right choice using four runners versus one long runner. I think one long runner will just accentuate the length. Is using four runners too much for this space? -Sent by Teresa

Editor: Readers, please vote: one long runner or several smaller runners? Which option works best in a long hallway? And should Teresa be worried about accentuating the length in the first place?
