I love old antique rugs used in a kitchen. They add warmth and a splash of color to the room.
Usually runners work best in kitchens, but if you have an open kitchen without an island, an area size rug will work too.
The rug and the window seat make this cottage kitchen very cozy! Since there is no center island, the designer was able to use an area size rug rather than a runner. This rug is a vintage Kilim.
Again this antique Kurdish carpet is the only color in the kitchen.
As the designer says "I love using antique rugs in the kitchen, it makes any kitchen look lived in." She's right! What a fabulous kitchen! The rug is an antique Persian Heriz. Image from High Gloss.

A beautiful rust antique Heriz lays in front of the kitchen fireplace.
You don't necessarily have to use an antique rug. Flat-woven and graphic rugs look great as well!
