Kitchen Runners are long, narrow rugs or mats placed in front of a counter or sink in a kitchen. Kitchen runners are specially designed to protect the floor from spills, stains, and wear and tear. They can also add a decorative touch to the room and provide a comfortable surface for standing or working in the kitchen.
How can you make a good choice for your kitchen, when it comes to runners? Here are a few things to consider:
- Material: Choose a material that is durable and easy to clean, such as synthetic fibre, cotton, or wool. Avoid materials that are prone to staining, such as silk or light-coloured natural fibres. Made of polypropylene, our kitchen runners are designed for light maintenance and easy cleaning
- Size: Measure the area where you want to place the runner and choose a size that fits well. Consider the width of the runner and make sure it fits comfortably in the space.
- Design: Select a design that complements your kitchen's decor. If you have a modern kitchen, consider a geometric pattern or a solid colour, for example, the Mashael MS-05 kitchen runner. If you have a more traditional kitchen, a floral or oriental pattern may be a good choice, you can have a look at our Portland PL-06.
- Slip-Resistance: Look for a kitchen runner with slip-resistant backing to prevent the runner from sliding around on the floor. Our kitchen runners have a jute backing and added grip
- Durability: Consider the traffic in your kitchen and choose a runner that can stand up to heavy use. Make sure you choose a kitchen runner that has colourfast dyes so that the patterns remain as good as new after daily use.
- Easy to clean: Kitchen runners are likely to get dirty and spilt on, choose a runner that can be easily cleaned and is stain resistant.
- Price: An economical kitchen runner doesn’t mean it lacks in quality, choose a runner that fits your budget.
By keeping these things in mind, you can choose a kitchen runner that is both functional and stylish. The kitchen runners from our Portland and Mashael collection come in various styles, patterns and colours to match any kitchen space, find yourself a kitchen runner that perfectly suits your home.
