I recently put a hand washable 2 m runner in my kitchen. It is quite thin so there's no tripping. I also have a non slip mat underneath so it is firmly placed on the floor tiles. I love it, it helps protect the light tile grout from the flicks of water from the dishwasher when we unpack it, and adds a bit of warmth to the kitchen. Even my husband who was very much against it has conceded that it works well.

Ah yes my small strip of 'open shelves' have tops, like cabinets without fronts so hopefully will be ok. ... There are cabinets and draws with a pullout pantry and appliance cupboard with bifold doors so hopefully ok for a one bed apartment...

Belfast sinks or any large sink with a flat square bottom imho use a lot more water just to get a minimal coverage to do anything in....prefer the modern sink for practicality...

Perhaps someone will do a piece on mud rooms, butlers pantries and walk-in pantries to get us straight.
