Runner Rugs Under $100

I know it’s hard to go from Sylvia’s makeover to a roundup. It just feels cheap. So we figured if it was going to be cheap we may as well make it a cheap roundup – like Rug Runners under $100 (also, come back tomorrow for a REALLY BIG ANNOUNCEMENT).

Back to rugs: I have probably 5 runners in my house, some way more expensive – like that vintage one I bought for $350 at the flea market (shown above). But, there are so many under $100 and it was time to expose them to you and your hallways or kitchens.

If you need coverage for a long hallway, is your advice to get two of the same runner, thereby making them less unique and special/interesting, or two different yet complementary styles?

Yes! This is my question too! I have a hallway that’s over 24 feet long with hardwood floors and I’m uncertain about the rug situation. Advice please & thank you!

Another interesting option is to get two of these, and get a rug shop to sew them together for you. They’d obviously take the fringe off the ends, and what they can do is pretty amazing. I’ve done this for a client before. Costs can range hugely, but for what it’s worth, we did this with 2 kilim types in chicago for less than $200. And those long runners, boy do they get expensive!

Thanks for this, I’ve been looking for a cheap runner for my kitchen!
Can you do a post sometime on what other design blogs YOU like to read?

y’all are crushing it with the posts these days. such great content and it is so nice to have a new post every morning to look for! i buy something from target pretty much every day – they should pay you more 🙂 today a rug, yesterday a chandelier…

this might be too colossal for a single post, but what about an LA city guide for a future post or little series? maybe with an overview post of the fun neighborhoods/areas and their vibes, and then more in-depth posts on where to shop/eat/stay in those areas?

I second this!

Jeez, how did you know this is EXACTLY what I’ve been shopping for?

I don’t know…I love the look of a runner, but I see it and think our four year-old would constantly be tripping over it/messing it up/generally driving me crazy with it. How do your boys do on the ones you have?

This. I feel like I would have to wash a runner all the time, what with spills and such. I’m hoping/wondering if any of these are even machine washable.

I have runners and a four year old as well, no problems with tripping or messing it up. A rug pad is key. Also a vintage persian or turkish rug hides dirt and stains really well!

Also while I (maybe) have your attention Emily and team, you know what would be a super fun post? Some kind of fun comparison between decades old style/trends and today’s trends. Like photos from House Beautiful or Arch Digest from the 60’s and 70’s, and an analysis of what was in trend then and how it’s held up to now, what’s timeless and what’s not etc, or something like that. Just a thought!

Thanks, these are great. I would like to add that you can find really cool Kilim runners on e-bay at very decent prices.
Also, how do you keep these runners from slipping? I have two kids, and even with non-slip thingies underneath the rugs, the slide or crumple when the kids run. Thank you!

I have a question about rugs in the kitchen. I cook a lot and things spill on the floor constantly. I’d love cute rugs like I see in pictures but I’d really need something that can be thrown in the wash. Is a washable stylish rug possible? Thanks for your help. Your blog is the best!

I have a rug in the kitchen and I love it. I found a vintage persian on ebay for cheap. Its got so much pattern you couldnt really tell if anything was spilled on it … I’m always stepping on my dogs food bits in bare feet. They are also pretty good with not getting stains either.

Great roundup. Link for #33 not working. Would love a section of the site that just has links to all your very helpful roundups. I use these for sources for my renovation all the time.

Any recommendations on what to put under a rug layered on wall-to-wall carpet? The larger ones anchored by furniture stay in place but the 3′ x 5′ one by the bed wanders toward the closet about a foot per week. It’s gorgeous and about 1/2″ thick and the perfect size but the bed’s so heavy, there’s no way I can put down a larger rug and hold it in place by the bed. I tried the light weight kinda grid looking rug pad but it didn’t help. Any ideas?
