Are you trying to find a way to inject a bit of colour or additional style into your kitchen? Kitchen runners are not only a great way to add your own personality, they can also be used to protect your floor. There is a kitchen runner to suit every taste and style, so take a look at our top five runners for inspiration for your own home.
With the Moroccan style on trend at the moment, we are sure that this Vintage Moroccan Kitchen Runner will be a big hit. It features warm colours and a geometric pattern and if you are planning to create a Moroccan kitchen then you should really consider this runner. 15 feet is quite long but if you have space then this runner could be used effectively as a focal point for your space.
For those of you who love cooking, this Olives Kitchen Runner is bound to fit into your kitchen. The words, stamps, and designs in a variety of fonts and colours on the muted grey background can help to soften the sharp, clean lines that are often associated with a contemporary kitchen. It adds a sense of fun and yet somehow manages to retain a contemporary feel. At two meters long, it is not too big for a smaller kitchen and will not overpower the space because the colours are nice and subtle.
We chose this next kitchen runner just for the sheer effort that has gone into making it. Created in Pakistan, the Ariana Ziegler Kitchen Runner is an incredible 19 feet long. What is more impressive though, is that it has been hand knotted and its colours are produced using vegetable-dyes. It truly is one of a kind and doubles up as a piece of art. However, this exclusivity does come with a hefty price tag, fetching almost £6000 – a justified price tag when you consider there are more than 900,000 hand stitched knots. It might not be to everyone’s taste and it definitely will not fit in everyone’s kitchen buy you surely cannot help but be impressed by the craftsmanship.
Here is something a little bit different and ideal if you want to add flair, fun, and colour into your kitchen. The Abstract Collage Multi Rug is not for the faint-hearted and the number of different colours mean that realistically it will only suit a white kitchen, however, you cannot deny that it is funky and modern. Handmade from 100% wool using a hand-tufting technique there is no doubt that it is full of luxurious, all be it wacky, charm.
If you are looking for something a little more down to earth, this Natural Living Seagrass Kitchen Runner will add a calming serenity to your kitchen. It is made from natural seagrass fibres, with a good range of subdued colours and tactile texture that make it perfect for a traditional style kitchen. The natural material and muted colours give this runner an eco feel and we think that it will work perfectly alongside natural solid wood kitchen cabinets.
