And not only does a rug feel good, it looks good. I'm thinking we could really use a runner along our sink/appliance cabinet wall running from living room to pantry.
But what about stains/spills? Is a rug in the kitchen a crazy idea with a baby on the way? I am tempted by a rug, but do think it'd have to be cleaned very often...and I would not want to spend a fortune on it, knowing it might get damaged in this most-used room in the house. So what do you think? Would you worry and say no to a rug in the kitchen? Or would you go for it and just accept the added maintenance and the damage that might get done in exchange for aesthetics/comfort?
