Many people consider the kitchen the most important room in the home. It’s a place for nourishment and creativity, where families gather and meals are made. And while having a sleek wooden floor or tiles is a practical choice, a cheerful little rug can go a long way in sprucing up your kitchen’s look, and keeping your feet warm when you’re making coffee in the morning! Here are some of our favorite kitchens with rugs from around the web:

The entrance into your home is the first greeting a guest receives at the door, the first peek impression of your space. But a hallway can be a difficult space to perfect — how do you make narrow dimensions feel warm and welcoming, imbued with the personality of you and your family? The perfect rug can go a long way in setting up your space and creating a welcoming entrance. Here are some examples we’ve found around the web:
