Trend alert: Rugs in kitchens


I’m pretty sure that this topic has been blogged about and talked about ad infinitum, but we continue to see more and more kitchen with rugs in them.

Having textiles on the floors of kitchens can be tricky – although they look beautiful and can add pops of color and liven a space, it is also a potential attraction for crumbs, stains of all kind and, in my case, use and abuse.

There are many options for rugs for the kitchen, ranging from neutral, natural materials to more fun and funky. I personally do not have a rug in my kitchen, but it’s because I haven’t found the right one just yet.

Here are some of my favorite uses of rugs in kitchens (sources at the bottom of the post). They definitely do make the space!
