WHAT ARE RUNNER RUGS?

A runner rug is both a stylish statement piece and a functional home decor. As you step inside, this rug instantly sets the tone of your living space. Beyond aesthetics, it’s practical too—they act as a catch-all that traps dirt and debris to keep your home cleaner. It also defines space by making it look longer, guiding your gaze and steps to different parts of your home.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF HAVING A RUNNER RUG?

A runner rug adds style and warmth to your space while providing practical benefits like trapping dirt and protecting floors. It's a versatile decor piece that can fit into various areas of your home, from hallways to kitchens.

Whether you're looking for eco-friendly options, durable materials for high-traffic areas or versatile designs to suit any decor, you'll find it all at Carpet Court. We offer a wide selection of high-quality runner rugs online and in-store in different rug sizes, styles, colours and materials. Use our store locator to locate the nearest showroom to you and see our runner rugs in person.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF A RUNNER RUG?

Runner rugs are both practical and stylish. They protect your floors and catch dirt in busy areas like hallways and kitchens.

To upgrade your entryway, living room or dining room, use Oasis as a hallway runner rug. It’s power-loomed in Turkey from tough polypropylene, making it ideal for high-traffic areas. Plus, the thick pile height brings a touch of luxury to your decor. It also comes in black and white geometric designs perfect for completing the look of Scandinavian-style living spaces.

For a durable and family-friendly design, try the Paradise runner. Made in Turkey from 100% heat-set polypropylene, this hall runner is built to last in high foot traffic areas like the living room or entryway. It has gold or grey accents and soft neutral tones, which makes it a timeless home decor.

WHERE SHOULD RUNNER RUGS BE PLACED?

Runner rugs come in a variety of styles and materials, so they’re perfect for almost any space. The most common spots are the hallways and entryways, where they provide style and functionality by catching dirt as people enter. Transitional runner rugs with classic and contemporary elements are excellent for these areas, while modern rugs featuring sleek designs work well in open-plan living areas or even as floor runners in a chic office space.

For bedrooms, placing a runner rug along the sides or foot of the bed creates a cosy landing spot for your feet as you start or end your day. Choose a shag rug or other runner rugs made of soft materials for extra comfort.

A floor runner placed in a kitchen can provide a comfortable standing spot when you're at the sink or stove. When it comes to living rooms, a runner rug can create visual interest and complement room colours. A dark grey or navy runner rug can bring a sophisticated look, while a blue or white runner along the wall can brighten up and define the space. Vibrant, multi-colour options like rust and terracotta offer a lively touch to your living area.

Don't overlook outdoor areas, either. An outdoor runner rug like the Terrace runner can spruce up a patio or balcony and make it more inviting. Made from high-quality polypropylene, this rug is ideal for high-traffic areas. It also comes in a range of stylish patterns and neutral colours that suit your space.

CAN YOU BUY RUNNER RUGS FOR STAIRS?

Absolutely! A stair runner rug is a narrow carpet that fits over your hardwood or tiled stairs but doesn't cover the entire width. Stairs are high-traffic, small-density areas, so you need a durable, low-profile fibre that can safely attach without causing trips.

Low-profile, tightly woven wool or synthetic fibres are the best choices for runner rugs for stairs. They're resilient, easy to clean, and simple to securely install. The Evoke and Odysey collections feature heat-set polypropylene fibre, making them highly durable and perfect as stair runners. For busy households and pet owners, the Museum runner is an excellent choice. With synthetic fibres made from 100% high-quality polypropylene, this rug is durable, non-shedding and easy to clean. It also has patterns inspired by Moroccan and Persian designs, which provide a decorative touch to your stairwell.

We have a wide selection of runner rugs, from solid-coloured, textured, synthetic to natural runner rugs.

Why should you have a runner?

A runner rug is like your best friend, they bring multi-faceted benefits to your life. The runner rug creates a strong impression when you first enter a home. Whether it is traditional or contemporary, bold or subtle, a runner rug is kind of a like welcome mat saying ‘welcome to my space folks, this is who I am’.

While creating a strong first impression, runner rugs also have practical benefits. Your hallway floor is where most dirt and debris from outdoors will be shed, so the hallway runner helps to collect particles from your shoes and prevent them from being tracked through the house. With this in mind, an easily-cleaned resilient runner rug is ideal.

Runner rugs also protect your floors from fading in sunlight. They are a noise insulator and add warmth and softness to your home’s entrance.

Your hallway runner rug also acts as a dimensional director, if you like. It highlights the length of the hallway while defining the space and acting as a pathway to other rooms.

Where can runner rugs be used?

Runner rugs can be used in any long space. While traditionally used in long, narrow hallways, in today’s open-plan living designs a runner rug is sometimes used to break up wide open stretches of space and as a path to doorways.

What sizes of runner rugs are available?

Within our luxurious assortment of rug collections, you will find runner rugs in a choice of sizes. Typically, you will find an 80cm width, with three, four and five metre lengths. That said, there are a range of rug sizes suitable to be used as runner rugs.

Can you buy runner rugs for stairs?

A runner rug for your stairs is a carpet that doesn't cover the entire width of the stair, so it is typically a long and narrow hallway runner suitable for installing over hardwood or tiles.

Because stairs are a high-traffic, small density zone you need a durable carpet fibre with a low profile so that it can be safely affixed to the stairs and won’t become a trip hazard. Fibres such as jute are not suited to stairs because of the difficulty cleaning the material while tufted wool which can catch heels and super soft, slippery synthetics aren’t suitable either.

Low profile pile and tightly woven wool or synthetic fibres are best because they have high resilience, are easy to clean and the low profile means they are easier to fix safely into place.

The Evoke Muse Blue and the Dream collection of stylish hall runners are a 100% heat set polypropylene fibre which is highly durable, doesn’t shed and has a 10mm pile height, making them ideal for use as stair runners. Runners from the exotic and luxurious Terrence collection is power loomed using enhanced polypropylene, Terrace rugs are weather and spill resistant, easy care and beautifully designed with striking effects that will add flair to any indoor or outdoor area.
