Over the last few years there has been a trend towards rugs in kitchens. I like the look, it can add colour and pattern to the space. Of course it can also make it more comfortable for standing. I remember seeing a picture of this kitchen several years ago, and I think it was one of the first that jumped out with the rug – and was at the beginning of the trend towards dark lower cabinets.
Here are a few other recent kitchens showing the rug trend. Even in very different styles of kitchens.
And a shot of my own kitchen with the rug. In my experience the kitchen rug with colour and pattern shows almost no dirt or spills. I think it adds a lot of warmth and personality.
