Carpet runners are great for rooms which you wouldn’t normally carpet, particularly the kitchen. Long, galley-style kitchens may not seem like the ideal place for a rug but carpet runners are the perfect shape for this style of room. They are easy to throw down as protection for your flooring and they come in many styles, lengths and designs so there is no need to forfeit style for convenience.
Having a kitchen runner is a great alternative to adding wall decorations. If you have a long galley kitchen but don’t have a lot of space on the walls, carpet runners can really add a touch of style to the room. They are extremely convenient as carpet runners are easy to roll up and replace as and when needed. So if you feel like a change of colour or your runner is getting a little worn, then you can easily choose another one from our rugs for sale.
Runners are also useful for dividing up a combined kitchen and dining room. You can choose a runner for the kitchen to distinguish it from your dining room and you can add a rug to the underside of your dining table to prevent scratching. We have a range of kitchen carpet runners as well as many traditional rugs which you can use to separate the rooms.
The colour of your runner really depends on what you want to use it for. There are green runners, blue runners and even multi coloured runners so you have plenty of choice. However, if you are using your runner to protect the floor from muddy shoes, then you may want to go for darker colours such as browns and blacks to make sure your runner lasts longer. You have more freedom when it comes to colour if you merely want to use your runner to decorate the kitchen galley.
Kitchen runner rugs also do a great job of protecting marble, hardwood or stone flooring. As this type of flooring is designed to last for years, it is a good idea to take care of it. Carpet runners are extremely effective at preventing scratches and scrapes to the surface of expensive flooring.
Additionally, hall runners are also perfect to protect your hallway from muddy, wet feet coming in from the outside. Carpet runners are great for absorbing noise and can also add a little comfort under your feet in a kitchen (or hallway).
