As a child I can remember my Aunt’s little nation kitchen where many fantastic foods were shared. Although the dishes were quite flavorful, it was the wall-to- wall shag carpet that made the kitchen memorable. Even as a child I was puzzled at the thought of vacuuming a carpet instead of sweeping a kitchen flooring.
I recently I polled a group of designers and design fans about rugs in the kitchen. Many agreed wall-to-wall carpeting wasn’t an perfect installation for a kitchen floor, but that runners helped to catch little spills and provide warmth from cold floors. Runners also offer another chance to add colour in a kitchen, no matter the size. If you are a skeptic like I was, this ideabook might allow you to see kitchen rugs in a brand new light.
