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 that a rug can handle what will inevitably land on it. Plus is it machine washable and non-slip?

If everything else in your kitchen is neutral, consider adding a pop of color with your runner. It’s such a simple way to introduce new colors and doesn’t require a long-term commitment!

How To Choose a Rug Color

My Top Kitchen Runner Choices


Rugs that are rated for outdoor use are a great choice for a kitchen because they are designed to repel water and stains. This pretty blue rug is handmade and braided and not only offers a pop of color, but a nice texture too.

Light Blue Braided Indoor/Outdoor Runner

This is another indoor/outdoor rug that can easily be hosed down outside. Beige is a neutral color that will work in any kitchen and hides stains well, while still being light and bright. 

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.
