What material is best for a rug that is under the kitchen table? We have 2 young kids, a black lab and a large cat. I'm looking for something that wont stain as much, and does ok with food and spills. Not sure I want a persion wool kind of rug because that doesnt seem very kitcheny to me - maybe a kilim kind of rug instead?
A Persian style rug in the right colors on a wood floor, can be very kitchen-y! But you're right, I can imagine a kilim rug in the kitchen and it would look warm and homey, too. I'm also partial to hand-hooked or braided rugs in kitchens, but that depends on the rest of your decor, and hand-hooked rugs, especially, do not hold up to pets. So let us take a look at most rug under dining room table with 21 design pictures below.

Here's what we have under our kitchen table, and it is the BEST kitchen rug, from a durability standpoint, although not necessarily from a design standpoint. It's basically wall-to-wall carpeting that is bound at the edges, forming a rug. (If you look under it, it looks like the underside of carpeting.) It's like a carpet remnant rug (leftover small-ish piece of carpeting bound into an area rug.) It's not exactly commercial-grade, but it is very low-pile. It's somewhat soft underfoot and will show vacuum marks, but is not as deep pile as typical wall-to-wall carpeting. It's a synthetic - stain resistant, like most new wall-to-wall carpeting. We have a solid color, but I believe you can buy the same type of rug in prints.
