30 Best Kitchen Runners to Complete Your Kitchen With

Written by: Cielo Bayobay

Create a fabulous kitchen space with these exquisite kitchen runners! Not only are they stylish, but they also add comfort and warmth to your kitchen.

The kitchen is considered the heart of the house not just because it’s where we prepare our meals, but also because it is where unforgettable get-togethers happen. All those baking sessions, fun food fights, and first cooking experiences (that ended up a complete kitchen disaster) — it all happens in the kitchen. Since it is such an important place, it should be decorated into a beautiful, inviting room where families and friends would want to hang out and cook meals. One way you can achieve a cozy cooking space is by adding kitchen runners.

 

 

Whether you have a simple farmhouse-style or an elegant English-style kitchen, you can use these runner rugs to enhance your kitchen. Aside from using them as decorations, you can also use them to bring warmth and comfort to the kitchen. Most of them are made from plush materials so you can use them to keep your feet comfortable while you are cooking or preparing meals.

 

 

Pros and Cons of Using Kitchen Runners

For some people, the idea of adding a runner rug in the kitchen sounds absurd because these floor covers are known to be notorious filth magnets. However, having a kitchen runner could also bring a lot of advantages. Get to learn more about the pros and cons of using kitchen runners below.

Pros

  • Has soundproofing properties that help control kitchen noise
  • Keeps your legs and feet comfortable while you cook
  • Adds style and beauty to your kitchen
  • Some are washable kitchen runners

Cons

  • High-pile runners can cause accidental trips and falls
  • Kitchen runners tend to be stain magnets
  • Without a rug pad, it can slip on the floor
  • If left uncleaned, it can leave foul odors in the kitchen

Even though there are some consequences in using kitchen runners, it is still a good idea to use them, especially if you like to DIY. Some of these rugs are designed with ornate patterns that could turn a dull, boring kitchen into a sophisticated cooking space. But if you prefer to keep it simple, many of these kitchen runners are also available in subtle, muted colors that are ideal for minimalist kitchens.

Frequently Asked Questions about Kitchen Runners:

 

 

  • How long should a runner rug be in the kitchen?

 

It actually depends on the layout of your kitchen. But, usually, runner rugs are used either in island-style kitchens or narrow-galley kitchens. If it’s a kitchen island, then it’s ideal to use a runner rug set with overall dimensions of 5 ft. X  7 ft. (for the longer rug), & 3 ft. x 5 ft. (for the smaller rug). Meanwhile, if it’s for a narrow-galley kitchen, obviously you should look for a smaller rug. Look for something that measures 2.5 ft. x 7 ft. 

 

 

  • Where should a runner rug be placed in a kitchen?

 

Think about the place where you mostly stay in the kitchen. Is it the washing area or the food preparation area? The area where you mostly spend your time is the one with the most foot traffic, so it makes perfect sense to place your runner rug there. 

 

 

Conclusion

If you love cooking, you probably spend hours in the kitchen making delicious meals for your family. But how can you cook properly if you tire easily from so much standing? Reduce foot and leg fatigue with these kitchen runners! Most of them are made from soft, plush materials, so they keep your feet warm and comfortable. What’s more, these rugs often come with anti-skid backing. Remember that kitchen floors tend to get too slippery (especially tiled floors) so you’ll most likely fall or slide without an anti-skid rug.
