Besides adding visual warmth and softness, a rug also adds literal softness, giving you something cushy to stand on while cooking. A little bit of extra cushioning under the feet can make a big difference if you spend a lot of time standing in one spot chopping, stirring or even just chatting. Of course, you’ll want to be prepared to react quickly to any drips, crumbs and splatters, so make sure you know how to deal with various food stains. There are other methods of handling spills as well, such as going with a flat-weave versus a shag rug and sticking to darker color palettes like red.
