We are getting travertine flooring in the kitchen. After much researching, and knowing that I can be a messy cook and washer upper, it seems the recommendation is that rugs be used in front of the sink and stove.
I don't want rubber backing because I don't like how it sticks to the floor and seems to come apart after a while. I've looked at simple cotton rag rugs, but I am drawn to the bolder colors (like red!) and I worry that those will bleed on the floor.
I have oriental rugs in my dining room and great room and I am wondering about using a wool rug in the kitchen. Home Decorators has a lot of reasonably priced wool rugs.
Here are some examples. (I will probably have to wait until the actual space is built, but I really can't help myself from thinking ahead!) Any thoughts are appreciated.
What do other people do in regards to the rug question? (Photos appreciated!)
