Runners lend a luxury feel to any space they’re placed in. From traditional, stately décor styles to modern and contemporary spaces, they fill awkward spaces well and add extra comfort to bare floors.
Hallways are the obvious spot for a runner. Choose a lighter shade with a bold graphic pattern or softer muted print to lighten up dark passages. The Romain runner is a good fit for wooden or screed floors as it makes for a great contrast in colour and feel. Inspired by traditional braided knits, this hallway runner is soft-to-the-touch and creates a sophisticated environment.
Runner rugs also give a little more traction on slippery surfaces, which make them ideal for a kitchen. Place yours in front of the sink or even in the centre of the kitchen to make the space look bigger. The Madras floor runner is a great option for kitchens. It’s made from natural jute which makes it hard wearing but offers a raw texture that gives hard kitchen lines a softer appeal. This material also makes it the perfect fit for pets that love to hang out while dinner is being cooked.
Runner rugs also look gorgeous in bedrooms, adding a touch of elegance to a simple space. Lie the runner in front of the bed, or better, in front of a storage ottoman at the base of the bed to complete your traditional look. We love the Alcati runner for this role. Its vintage feel, in soft mid-pile with a Turkish pattern is both dreamy and indulgent – perfect for bare feet on chilly mornings. Whichever runner you choose, you can get it today and only pay later through either Afterpay or Zip Pay.
