Spruce up your home in new, unique, funky ways using only runner rugs. Make a runner rug your next bright design idea. Here are a few of our favorites:
A softer side of cooking: Kitchens are sleek, efficient and often designed with hard lines and cold surfaces. A runner can be used to soften up the kitchen and bring a coziness that can't be accomplished with tile floors and granite countertops.

Luxurious bath: Gone are the days of ragged yarn looped bath mats that are either too small, too casual or just too simple. Your bathroom deserves as much attention as any other room in your house, but the challenge can be addressing the long narrow spaces.
If your rug might be located in an area that may soak up excess moisture, consider an indoor/outdoor polypropylene runner that is resistant to mildew.

Cascade down the stairs: Installing carpet on your stairs often has limited options. Patterns or colors are often less enticing than the variety available in the rug world. Runner rugs make the perfect companion to your stairs with more unique options than most carpet companies provide. The best part is, even as a novice, you can install it yourself.

Grace a small space: There is no reason a small space can't enjoy the same benefits and beauty that a rug provides, you just may have to be a bit more clever with selecting and situating the rugs. Rather than talk about it, we thought we should just show you.

Outdoor steps: For when those stone steps get slippery or just to dress up any of the paths leading from your deck to your yard, trying installing an indoor/outdoor runner. While you may not want to keep these rugs out all of the time, you can quickly and easily adorn your outdoor pathways.

Hallways and entryways: The one area of your home that is perfect for a runner rug is a hallway or a narrow entryway. Runners add such character in a long hallway that might otherwise seem bare.
