Yes or No to Kitchen Rugs?

by

This week’s topic might be a bit controversial, the kitchen rug: yay or nay? I know many people would shudder at the thought of placing a rug in this high traffic area that is subject to food spills but a kitchen rug does have its merits. I have used one at our beach house where the basic ‘galley style’ kitchen needed some enhancement (to say the least!). Using a rug in this space has a few features. It provides a splash of colour that links to the artwork and blue and white homewares. It also defines the kitchen as more of a room and less of a walk through space. My kitchen rug was inexpensive, so to replace it down the track if/when it does get stained won’t be such a big deal.

Stripes seem to be a popular choice for kitchen rugs.

I like the fact that a rug also softens all the hard surfaces within a kitchen.

Even a smaller sized mat can still work to add some colour.

An oriental or Aztec style with a darker colour may be more practical.

The washable polypropylene indoor/outdoor rugs that are now available would be a great choice for the kitchen too.

So, what do you think? Yay or nay to the kitchen rug?

  1. I like the plastic rugs made in Sweden. They add a pop of color, comfy on feet, and easy to clean! Check out Stocholm Savanne Rug.

  2. They do look beautiful…as do all those kitchens! but with the amount of times I have to sweep and mop my kitchen floor I think it would barely, actually never look quite so pristine as these ones! Maybe one of the more patterned ones that hide the dirt…. or I just wait the gazillion years until my kids stop spilling stuff! 🙂

  3. I think I could be a yay for the rug! Love the pop of colour so much. Is that your beach house in the first pic? Love the artwork and the striped rug – so beachily beautiful xox
