13 Beautiful Kitchen Runner Rugs


Adding a runner rug to your kitchen is the perfect way to add some color and texture, and it can completely transform how your space looks!

Since the kitchen is a high traffic area that will inevitably see lot of spills, crumbs and messes, it’s important for your sanity that you choose a rug that can handle what will inevitably land on it.

What Type of Runner Should I Get?

Consider your color palette and other decorating choices when choosing your rug color. If everything else in your kitchen is neutral, consider adding a pop of color with your runner.

My Top Kitchen Runner Choices


Usually I would stay away from such a light colored rug in the kitchen, but if a bold black and white geometric print is what you want, then this washable rug is a must-have.

Beige Striped Indoor/Outdoor Runner

In the past, I had an area rug in my dining room similar to this one and the cotton material was both soft underfoot and highly durable. This one comes in several colors and I love the trellis pattern.

Grey/Ivory Trellis Cotton Runner Rug

This is the same line as the sage rug above, just in a dark blue. I had to show both because the colors are just stunning. I’m tempted to buy this one too and see which one I like best!
