I would love to have a rug in the kitchen that looks like this.
I like this kitchen and its rug. It inspired me to buy a rug for my sad little kitchen. I thought it would brighten it up. I went for a more contemporary look because we have plenty of antique in our house. Here it is in the Crate and Barrel world.
But after living on my kitchen floor for a few days, the thing looked gross. The white part became super dirty. So I washed it in the washing machine. Then it got little pills all over it. So I pulled them off by hand but it still didn’t look good. Then I took it to get cleaned professionally. And $40 later it is sort of clean, but not going back in the kitchen. Now it lives in a spare bedroom and I think the whole thing was a big waste of time.
How the heck do people keep rugs in the kitchen clean? Most of the ones I see are kilim rugs which certainly are not washable.
My next project just might be to make my own rug from this website.
I would not choose this one exactly, but I love the idea of making a vinyl rug with a fabric I chose to cover my vinyl floor that is super ugly. It would be so easy to clean. Thought I doubt it is a long term solution, all I need a year or so!
