A Rug in the Kitchen

6:00:00 AM

Have you ever wondered about putting a 
rug in the kitchen?

Well I have found a great answer...

I hemmed and hawed over whether or not to put an 
area rug in my kitchen... I had images in my head of
it being covered with red juice, chocolate, 
and just being an absolute mess.

Well I bought a rug and that didn't happen!

and you can see that process HERE,
I wanted something gray and off white like the paint.

I ordered this Striped Chevron Rug from Ballard Designs.

This rug is an indoor/outdoor rug, the colors were perfect,
and it was reasonably priced too.

I figured that if it ever got dirty, 
I could take it outside and hose it off...

I am here to tell you that the rug has been down in 
the center of my busy kitchen for over 6 months now.

I have 2 teenagers and a twenty something living at home...
that means a lot of food and a zillion friends in the kitchen.

The carpet doesn't have 1 spot on it, everything seems to 
bead up on it like magic. I will be totally honest here and 
tell you that I only sweep it off once a week.

Not a speck of stain anywhere!

I am not being paid by Ballard to promote this carpet.

I found a good thing and I just thought you should know!

Would you ever put a rug in your kitchen? or do you already?

  1. Susan thanks for sharing this great source. I simply cannot commit to area rugs mostly because of the dirt / spill factor that you feared too but now you've got me thinking anew. Have a great weekend.

    1. Hahaha well CC if you need one... this one works! :)

  3. I like your rug Susan and it looks great in your kitchen. I haven't put a rug in mine and don't think I could, not with my family!

  4. Who'd even guess that this is an indoor/outdoor deal? I bet you'll love it even more when those winter chills seep inside!


  5. Oh, yes ... I love a rug in my kitchen, and yours is beautiful.

  6. I am too much of a slob to have rug!! But I must say, yours looks great. Love the pattern and colors!

  7. I love your rug! I have one in my kitchen too! I have also purchased an outdoor rug from Ballard's and actually have it outdoors! It has held up GREAT all summer!!

  8. Good idea... there wasn't one at Ballard that I liked, I'll keep looking. I like the hose it off idea!

  9. Love it! I'm going to check the rug out for my entry way.

  10. Good Morning, After reading all of the above comments I must be 'old'!! LOL I have two rugs in my kitchen and have had one by the sink for so many, many years. My rug is very washable. I really do like your rug and being able to resist stains, wow! Blessings and smiles, Emilou

  11. Don't think I could put one in my kitchen, that floor is always a disaster, but playroom it would work Great! TFS your source now I know where to go get one!

  12. Just curious, does this rug have any kind of backing on it? As you have said it is indoor/outdoor, so water would need to drain through it if it was out on the deck or front porch. Does the rug tend to slip/move on your wood floors?

    1. Linda there is one of those sticky rug pads under it... If you need to take it outside and hose it off the rug pad is a separate piece.

  13. We have an indoor/outdoor rug in our dining room and I LOVE IT. The kids are slobs (ha), so it's perfect. I'd definitely use one in my kitchen.

  14. I like a rug in the kitchen. I put one in ours lately but it won't last - I must be a messy cook. YOurs looks durable.
