Why A Vintage Runner Rug?
A vintage runner rug will bring a touch of class and life to your home. They're available in a wide variety of colors, styles, and materials, and every rug has its own personality.
Vintage rugs can be used in several areas around the home. For example:
A distressed runner rug in a farmhouse kitchen adds padding and style by the sink or countertops during food preparation.
A vintage rug runner in the entryway adds color and texture to the space for a better first impression on guests.
A vintage Turkish runner rug in a shabby chic home unifies decor in the bedrooms and bathrooms with the rest of the house.
The possibilities are limited only by your imagination, especially if you start layering your runner rugs. Placing a vintage rug runner on a jute runner, for example, can create a striking, natural appeal.

Vintage rugs usually use Oriental and tribal designs that have been passed down and refined over centuries, which is part of why they're so popular.

Is A Vintage Runner Rug Right For Me?
If your home has any hallways or walking areas that could use a runner rug to protect the flooring, you can guarantee that a vintage runner rug will do the trick. These rugs are versatile enough to fit into almost any home.
The following tips will help you choose the right rug for your home:
Consider the existing colors in your home. Choose colors that complement your existing decor so you can be sure your rug doesn't clash. Don't be afraid to choose a vintage pattern that throws in a wild card color, though.
Measure your hallway or walkway carefully. This will help you choose the perfect size of runner for the space. You want between 6 and 18 inches between the edges of your rug and the walls.
Think about style. Do you want an Oriental rug? Or something with a more contemporary feel? It's vital that you love how the rug looks on its own before you put it in your home. Try to pick a style that meshes with the rest of your decor.
