Love the rug in the kitchen feel
protected by a rug is easy
mats and rugs are essential; the softness keeps you comfortable as you stand for long stretches of time cooking or cleaning. They also absorb excess moisture, preventing slips.

Add a rug. Kitchen rugs are easy on the feet and provide a nice variation of pattern or color on the floor. Long, narrow runners are perfect for this, but be sure to get one that can be thrown into the wash.
Cotton rugs are generally best in this area because they can be washed and dried easily. If your wood floors have been significantly water damaged, call a wood flooring professional. Stay away from: Large amounts of water. No matter where your wood floor is in the house, never pour large amounts of water
