Rookie Tip: If you’re going to join Team rug-in-the-kitchen, be prepared to get a little messy! The most important part is to accept the stains as part of the territory and not worry about it. I spent about $20 on this rug and it has lasted me a whole year of wear and tear… every.single.day. $20 for an entire year is a pretty awesome return on this investment & makes me far less attached to this rug and far more understanding when a little red sauce flies out of the sink and onto the rug… to stay.
So yes, I am still a rug-in-the-kitchen-kind-of-girl and am digging my new runner thanks to HomeGoods! And the best part?
HomeGoods hooked it up with another fabulous (and AFFORDABLE) rug.
Our entryway has seen some serious wear & tear throughout this brutal Chicago winter. One old gross rug, somehow multiplied into 2 mismatched rugs that looked even worse than the original problem spot. Rule of thumb: 2 wrongs still do not make a right, even when it’s cold & wet outside.
Again, this affordable woven rug was the subtle change that would add a clean, fresh and functional pop to our entryway.
It’s a little longer than the original doormat sized rug that was there, however, I love that it peeks out from behind the half-wall. Just like in the kitchen, this rug adds some serious texture and makes the whole space feel more “finished”.
