I have been on the hunt for some good farmhouse kitchen rug runner. The style of my kitchen is a rustic Italian farmhouse vibe and need to break up the sea of dark floors. One challenge is to actually find one in the plethora of choices. I mean its not like they say Farmhouse kitchen rug runner. Some other obstacles I’m dealing with a kid who for the life of me can not stop dropping a single thing and a dog who loves to be in the kitchen with dirty paws scavenging. I get a lot of questions on where can I get an affordable good runner, or what style of runner will match my farmhouse kitchen. So I figured while I’m on this journey I will show what to look for and what I find that will fit in to that farmhouse look your going for and can take a beating.
What to look for In a Farmhouse Kitchen Rug
Ok we are on a mission. The first thing I want to take with me when I am searching for a piece is my priorities or my must haves. For example with my little booger running around I need my rug to be slide proof and waterproof for all those accidents waiting to happen. However I’m pretty sure that a rug pad will be needed. Washer safe if all else fails I can just throw it in there is a plus. And style of course. It has to fit into that rustic farmhouse style.
Look for distressed vintage and some tribal style designs. The distresses of the style gives it the more rustic feel. Not a beige fan? No worries those type of design almost always come in all kinds of color. A good universal style would be a jute weave. It a highly sustainable source and is very durable. There is some texture depending on the weave. This type of runner matches very well with that farmhouse look and more. Lastly, what is your budget. Take that into consideration when looking at your picks. My budget is $50. Since this is a relatively low I am going to source some affordable place that won’t steer you wrong with prices. There will also be a variety of color and textures that will fit your farmhouse kitchen needs. So let go shopping!
Okay I have come to the conclusion that finding a kid friendly rug period is not easy. Finding one that is affordable and has good reviews is damn near impossible. But I got it done. I was tempted to gather some at the $80 dollar range, but had to stick to the guns when it comes to the budget. Oh and all these picks are rated a 4 star or more. There is a lot of give and take with the selections, though. For example its either stain resistant and not skid proof and vic versa. Lets see which one shall we pick.
