My Favorite Kitchen Rug (bound carpet)

Guys, I have tried and tested many products over the past 6 years of blogging, and I can say without a doubt that this Mohawk SmartStrand bound carpet I have in my kitchen is my absolute favorite!

That’s why I love sharing it with you!

Why do I love it?


Because it can withstand the wear and tear of my four boys!

We are tough on carpet, and truthfully, most of our rugs get thrown away after a couple of years.  But not this one!

It has endured many spills and looks just like new!

Three of my boys and my great nephew, Colt, at spaghetti the other night at the table, and I didn’t worry one bit about any spills.  If they spill something, it cleans right up.  AND EASILY!



Soooooo easily, that I didn’t hesitate to pour some ketchup right on the carpet to show y’all.  Yep. I. Did

I poured some ketchup on my carpet, rubbed it in real good with my finger, and let it dry.

Later, I just poured a little dish soap on the carpet and wiped the ketchup up with a dish rag.  It disappeared instantly.  Not a trace!  LOVE THAT!

  1. Love the color and pattern of your rug-but the link takes me to Mohawk where there is over 2300 rugs! can you share the name and color of your rug to help me? price would be great too–thanks so much for your help

    1. Hi Jeanne!
      Here is the carpet I chose: “Lasting Luxury-Cobblestone.”
      I love the pattern, and it comes in other colors.
      I am checking on the price. :)

  2. I, too, love, love my Smart Strand carpet by Mohawk. My husband has advanced Parkinson’s disease and has trouble holding his eating utensils so we have many drops and spills. It cleans right up and that is why I purchased it. PLUS it is so soft and silky on the bottom of the feet. :-)

  3. I won this rug through a giveaway you posted last year. BEST RUG EVER!!!! With an 18 month old, who loves to drop his food, I have no worries. Nothing has stained, so easy to clean. Thanks again.

  4. Thank you for info! With a 4 y/o grandson who uses the dining room table for crafting & eating you can just imagine the outcomes! Am going to check out.

  5. Traci, I love that rug! Thanks for sharing about a great piece! I’d love to hear a follow up on the rug a year from now. (Still stain resistant?) and I’m also drawn to your eye candy chandy!! Did you diy that? I must have missed it!!
