Best Rugs for the Kitchen

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

What is the best rug to use in the kitchen?

Here is what I learned about putting a rug in the kitchen...

And here is the 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!

After having my cabinets paintedand you can see that process HEREI wanted something gray and off white like the paint.

the perfect rug for the kitchen

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.

How did the carpet in the kitchen hold up? 

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. (I did not win Housekeeper of the Year)
