Over the last year, many of us have decided to escape the city for scenes of the country. And for those of us who haven’t transitioned, our connection to nature and the natural elements surrounding us have never been more significant - Cue gorgeous and modern country kitchen rug ideas.
You don't have to live on a century-old rural homestead to enjoy the charms of the country, though. A Modern farmhouse kitchen may sound like two opposite ideas competing against one another: but if done correctly, the blend of a rustic, warm farmhouse kitchen and a clean, minimalist modern kitchen can create a beautiful and timeless design.
Compared to every other room in a home, the kitchen is arguably the most popular spot to gather with friends and family. And these days, rustic cooking spaces brimming with country charm are even more irresistible.
And while modern design and farmhouse style may seem respectively exclusive, we promise they are not. The country kitchen concept is mouldable - it can feel clean and minimal, bright and retro, or elegant and traditional. And no matter where you live or the age of your home, you can re-create the charm of a modern farmhouse-style cooking space.
An impressive rug is an ideal finishing touch to your modern farmhouse decor - in this blog, we’re going to be bestowing the best farmhouse rug ideas to compliment your look!

For an Instagram-worthy modern aesthetic, it’s got to be the Beni Ourain Berber shag area rug. Though these rugs are too luxurious for the kitchen, we’d say - they make an ideal area rug placed underneath your dining table.
Not only is this a bold design statement, but also a cosy texture for your feet. This rug features a creamy off-white plush pile with a criss-cross design in charcoal grey and tassels at each end for the perfect finishing touch. Take a look at some of our Berber rug options featured.

A vintage Persian rug not only sets the tone in your modern farmhouse kitchen, but also lasts a lifetime. A floral pattern is in keeping with the country vibe and another way to bring an element of nature into your home.
Here at Lilla rugs we offer a substantial collection of vintage and antique rugs below are just a few of our favourites.
A Persian Kilim rug bears rich colours and graphic patterns that partner perfectly with a modern farmhouse style. If you have a larger open planned kitchen, then a stunning Kilim rug is one to consider.
It’s better to opt for flatweave rugs in the kitchen. They are more durable and easier to clean which is a must for kitchen spaces. Bear in mind that a patterned rug in a darker shade will be more forgiving when it comes to spills.
We have selected three Kilim rugs that are sure to be a conversation starter in your kitchen.
