Vintage Style Kitchen Runner Rugs

Consider this the part two of my previous post on the same topic, as my search continues for that perfect runner rug for my cottage kitchen. I am looking for something that's 

  • Stain resistant: hello, no-brainer for a high traffic area between kitchen counter and island. 
  • Easy to clean: I need a rug I can spot clean and quickly vacuum up when mess happens. 
  • Material: something that's stain resistant and easy to clean is unlikely made of natural materials such as wool or cotton. So polyester and polypropylene/cotton blend will do just fine for me. 
  • Cost: unlike a large area rug for living room or dining room where I splurged to make a statement, kitchen runner rug is intended for everyday abuse. To me, it doesn't make sense to spend a ton on it. 
  • Style: vintage-inspired of course. I am loving medallion and Bokhara patterns. 

Easy peasy right? These are the eight candidates I've narrowed down to. 

1. nuLOOM Traditional Geometric Herati Medallion Border Navy. This was the one I mocked up in my cottage kitchen. 

2. Feizy Katari in Taupe/Castle, so far the front runner. 

3. Momeni Afshar rug in copper/navy: so in love with rusty orange tones in a rug these days. It all started with this one. 

4. nuLOOM Vintage Freda Floral Garden runner in pink and navy. 

5. UniqueLoom Bokhara runner in grey: can you believe this is the runner version of the same Bokhara rug I love so much in my living room and my cottage dining room?

6. Mistana Blackwell Dark Blue rug: really love this one, the colours and the patterns, but I am a bit skeptical based on the reviews on Wayfair. A lot of buyers didn't find it as distressed as they hoped for. 

7. Surya Harput rug in pink and navy: this is the one that's now in my basement hallway

8. Nuloom Vintage Killian Gray Hallway Runner: this is another strong contender. It has a lot of blues and camels with a touch of pink on a soft grey background. 

So which one is your favourite? Which one would you recommend for my all-white cottage kitchen?
