Foyers without Rugs

Do you use a rug in your foyer/entry? I have noticed in my idea files that most of my foyer pictures do not have rugs. Don't you need a rug in the foyer to help collect dirt? Am I missing something? What do you do?

Have a great weekend-

I have a rug in my foyer. I am too practical not to have one! Mine is an indoor/outdoor rug from Ballard Designs and it is very thin and not cushy like other types of rugs. I think it does the job and looks nice without being super formal like a rug in a formal living room might.

Our rug in our mud room saves my carpet! Its amazing how much dirt I find under it every week, and about once a month it is beat and washed.

However, our foyer doesn't have a rug, because we don't use that door. Most of our friends know to come to the mud room.

We don't have a rug in our foyer, it's easier to clean the floor up with kids and dogs with no rug.

Well A- We don't have a traditional foyer and B- The way our dog runs around like a bat outa' hell? That rug would be a hot rumpled mess at all times. I like both looks. Rug and no rug. You decide ;)

And p.s.? How the hell did I miss that insane cabinet/booze drama!?? Freakin' tragedy!!!!!

I'm not much of a rug girl myself!! But with 2 dogs I would prefer to not have a stich of carpeting anywhere in my home!

love those photos. I don't have a rug in our entry but that's because I have such a hard time deciding.
