Covering a kitchen floor?
What do you have for a rug in your kitchen area? We recently renovated/added on such that the old kitchen is now our eat-in space, while the new kitchen is housed in the addition. We need a good sized floor covering to protect the quarter sawn oak floors, most especially in the eat-in section, beneath our dining table.
An actual rug doesn't seem like a practical choice, given spillage, crumbs, etc. I'm drawn to the idea of a painted floorcloth, but haven't found a good source yet. I've seen (in magazines) laser cut or water-jet cut vinyl floor treatments that were kind of interesting, but none yet in a style that is traditional or appropriate for the period of our house: 1902 Colonial Revival.
Any ideas? TIA!
