Floor runners with a purpose...


I've had this idea stuck in my head, I know it's nothing new and has been done before but I like to think I came up with the idea...I love the idea of using a floor runner at the foot of the bed running horizontally with a bench, trunk or two small ottomans on top. I think it looks great to have a rug underneath your bed that is quite a bit larger but what about using a floor runner to achieve the same sort of look and to cut cost? I think it would look equally as good and would cost a fraction of the price.

I went online to find some pictures to demonstrate this example and really... I could not find one, maybe I'm onto something. I have seen runners on the side of the bed but not at the foot of the bed?...Have you seen this or done this look before?...Pretend that you haven't :)

I love all of the looks of the runners below and all of them are surprisingly affordable. The next bedroom I design will hopefully have a runner at the foot of the bed to showcase this "new" (wink, wink) idea...

Obviously the large rug looks beautiful underneath this bed but if you are on a budget, why not opt for a runner at the foot of the bed instead of a full size rug?

That is a great idea for the end of the bed! I am actually looking for a good runner for my entry, so these sources are great. Thanks.

I've been contemplating this dilemma in our bedroom and a runner might just be the answer - thanks Staci!
