How do you feel about rugs in the kitchen? We had one, but it recently bit the dust and I'm contemplating it's replacement. Looking through my inspiration files, most of the kitchens are sans a rug, but I'd really like to soften my kitchen a little -- and cover some of the awful laminate tiles that are supposed to look like parquet wood floors.
Something striped and colorful would be nice. I love the Dash & Albert cotton rug that's in our bathroom, even though it attracts dirt (it's brown and white), I toss it in the wash and it's good as new (I'm pretty sure I'm supposed to dry clean it, but washing works for me).
A natural fiber like seagrass seems like a good option. It's versatile, low-maintenance, and doesn't show dirt.
Jenny of Little Green Notebook posted this image this morning, which got my wheels spinning. Not that I'm going to run out and buy an antique rug any time soon, but I like the idea of trying something less kitchen-y. Not so sure this would stand up to my kitchen, which is also essentially a mudroom.
What say you, dear blog friends? Rugs in the kitchen, or no? What have you tried?
