Rug Runners in the Kitchen

Adding small details to my home gives me joy. Even if it is something small. A new vase, curtains, pillows and some blue and white ginger jars, whatever I find buying for my home always gives me such great happiness.

I was on Pinterest recently looking at kitchens and saw how some people had put rug runners in their space. I thought that was a great idea. It took me awhile to find one that I liked and one that my family would tolerate but I found this small runner at HomeGoods a few weeks ago.

This is my kitchen. Now this looks like a normal size rug but it isn't.

It is a blue, white and gray runner that I found at HomeGoods. I paid about $40 for it. 

I do like the way it looks and my husband has not complained about it at all. 

Some inspiration that I found on Pinterest.....

Love the farmers sink and how the island is blue and the kitchen cabinets are white. 
I do like how some homeowners take risks. Sometimes it turns out great!

Now I must admit I do love the color of these cabinets with the gold hardware. It looks so chic to me!

Oh sorry forgot, the runner looks great too!

I do hope that you enjoyed this post and are inspired to take a second look at rug runners. One in your kitchen just might give it that extra pop of color or texture that you are seeking.

  1. I love that idea. And your new kitchen rug looks perfect.

    1. Thank you Sadie! It took me awhile to find a runner that I liked but I am very pleased with it.
