Love: Striped Rugs in White Kitchens

I saw these three white kitchens with striped rugs at This Old House.

Of course, my heart skipped a beat.

Two of my favorite things: white kitchens & stripes.



  1. Tara

    I *heart* white kitchens and striped rugs also. :)

    OOOOoo, I love white kitchens. I have one in this house we built several years ago. Love it! I usually use two rugs in there, I need to look for a stripe the next time I buy new ones, these pics are so nice. Thanks for sharing.

    Those kitchens are beautiful – so light and open! And the rugs are perfect. As much as I like the feel of a white kitchen, I really like color too, so those stripes are a great way to get that into a room. Something I’ll have to keep in mind for my someday house…

    Got the stripes, now for an entirely new kitchen courtesy of This Old House, cause I do have an old house right? Don’t you just love Dash and Albert rugs?

  5. Annelise

    By the way, Dash and Albert make great conversation pieces as well, their handbags get me lots of comments.

    I don’t have the white kitchen… but I may just be adding a striped rug to mine soon. Beautiful!

    Ooooh I LOVE striped rugs, especially the idea of one in my kitchen. Have a lovely Tuesday, Melissa : )
    Love, Laura

    Oh, I’m with you Melissa. I love the combo. When I get done with all of my cabinet painting I may splurge on a Dash and Albert rug. Unless I can find something similar for less!

    I love striped rugs! I have a hard time getting the client to go for them sometimes, but I love the finished look. I particularly love the long stripes down a hall!

    Oh me too! This little kitchen reinforces in me the desire to paint the cottage kitchen all white…now it’s a go for sure. {I had been going back and forth as to what to do} thanks for the help =)

    These look like such trip hazards, though. Okay, getting past that…they are very nice and a white kitchen always looks clean if it is. What am I even talking about?!

    Hi Melissa –

    I love the carefree, breezy look and feel a striped rug adds to a room. I have a few small ones in my kitchen that I change out, but would love one of these long runners. Kinda reminds me of the Blue and white stripe rug from the living room in the movie, Something’s Gotta Give. Love all the kitchens you posted, too.
    My best – Diane

  16. Jocelyn Stott

    Oh my, I too love stripes so much. These look great. I have a long, narrow kitchen as well and I think I could pull this off!!

  17. Trish

    Yes! I’m going back and forth between a white kitchen or a turquoise kitchen, but the rugs are fantastic! Thank you for a great post!

    I have always loved stripes. Repetitive lines—what is it that I’m so drawn to??? I remember a swimsuit I had when I was 13–tiny stripes. My favorite swimsuit that I still compare every swimsuit I purchase. These kitchen rugs are sooooo wonderful. They really warm up the stark white kitchens without adding clutter. Ahhhh, clean lines and warmth—what more could you want?

    I love my black and white stripe rug in my kitchen. They just look HOT in a white and grey kitchen with hints of stainless steel.

    I love how the rug looks in this kitchen.., but I have a scabos stone(each piece is different) in my kitchen…do you think the stripe rug will look good on my stone??

  21. Maggie

    My fave combination. Have had Dash and Albert for years. So durable. Now they offer indoor outdoor also..
