Making our Kitchen a Little More Personal

Although we moved into our new home back in December, I feel like we are still trying to finish unpacking and make it seem more like home. I’m envious of those people who move in, unpack, and have everything beautifully decorated in just a few days. I guess we all have our own strengths (and organizing is NOT one of mine!)

One area that I’ve especially felt wasn’t complete was our kitchen. We don’t currently have the largest kitchen, and since I have a lot of kitchen supplies, it can get a bit hectic in there. Still, I kept feeling like there was something missing – something that would pull everything together and make it feel more homey.

My mom always has had rugs throughout her house, including in the kitchen, and it’s something I loved. When Wayfair offered to send me a new Home Dynamix rug, free of charge, to try out, I knew exactly where I wanted it to go – in the kitchen. To me, it felt like the ideal place for it, and it was something our kitchen needed. Not only do we have wood floors, and it would help protect them a little bit more, but I felt it would bring a much needed ‘pop’ of decor into the room.

Forrest wasn’t totally convinced – he doesn’t think kitchens need rugs. However, as soon as it arrived, and I set it out, I think he agreed with me that it was just what our kitchen needed.


I felt like the colors went with our cabinetry and the hard wood floors, and I just love how it brings everything together. I’ll admit I wasn’t so sure about the pattern at first, but it really has grown on me. The rug is also very soft, which makes standing on it to the dishes more comfortable! They have a lot of great options for rugs and you can see more here.
