Runner rugs have become quite famous in the past decade. They are long, narrow rugs that are a perfect fit for places where traditional rugs do not fit.
For instance, you may want a carpet in the hallway, at the front entrance of the house, in the kitchen, on the sides of the bed in your room, or even in the bathroom.
Wherever you use runners, they add color and life to the area. Runner rugs serve as a soft and warm bridge between the different areas of the house. They add a certain pop with the colorful texture they have.
Now you can easily buy runner rugs online at RugKnots. We have a huge collection of unique and original runners, so select one, place your order and receive it at your doorstep.
Typically, runners are 2-3 feet wide, and available in multiple lengths. You can choose any depending on your preferences and the area for which you are shopping for runner rugs.
For your bedside, we usually recommend buying the 6-foot runner. For the hallway, the 12 feet runners are ideal, and for the stairs, we recommend checking out 20 feet runner rugs.

Materials and Making of the Runner Rugs
Making the runner rugs is just as complicated as it is to make the Bokhara rugs, Oriental Rugs, and Traditional Rugs that you will find at RugKnots.
Nonetheless, to help you to know a little about the rugs before you buy runner rugs online, here is what you need to know.
Braided rugs – Braided rugs are also what we know as hand-knotted rugs. At RugKnots you will find a variety of these, but if you want to buy runner rugs in the US, then here are some recommendations we have:
Hand-knotted or braided runner rugs are unique in designs and how the artisans construct them.
Hooked runner rugs – These runners are usually soft. We use yarns and push them into the fabric base, creating a rounded, looped, and springy texture.
Hand-woven runner rugs – These are usually flat-woven rugs, hand-knotted without knots, and hence have a Kilim like those you will see in flat-woven rugs.
Wool runner rugs – These are one of the high-quality runners you will find in the market. We make these with extra care to make them feel very soft under the feet. The wool we use is stain resistant and 100% natural.
Natural Fiber runner rugs – We make these using Jute, which is a natural fiber that comes from the stalk of the same plant that is used to make burlap. These runner rugs are very soft in texture, though not as soft as jute is, and they are made from the agave plant. These runners are durable.
Design Variations Explained
If you are looking for traditional and sophisticated yet classic runners, then we recommend that you opt for the Oriental runner rugs. The Vintage overdyed runners are timeless Oriental rugs, designed with the modern twist.
They always have a lush and super-saturated color. To make the indoor-outdoor runners our artisans usually use the synthetic. This makes them capable of withstanding the sun, extreme weather, and sand.
Moreover, these rugs are low maintenance.
We have a variety in colors of runner rugs, which include colors like shades of grey, green, blue, red, and black.
