Ever wonder why the kitchen floor isn’t a rug, or even made out of carpet? Certainly it would be a lot easier to vacuum that space than to sweep it, and a padded surface would feel more comfortable underfoot. My guess? At some point in modern human history, somebody must have had to learn this lesson the hard way. There they were, dressed warmly and comfortably, slaving away on the stove preparing a warm, fulfilling meal on a cold winter’s night. They added the spices and the meats, slow cooking one of the most fabulous chilies that man had ever known (and there have been
some good ones
). The time to indulge was now at hand, but as our historic figure turns to transport her dish from stove to table…disaster strikes. She trips (probably on one of the kid’s toys), and starts falling in what appears to be slow motion, chili flying through the air before ultimately coming to rest on every conceivable surface. The walls and countertops can be wiped and saved, but the kitchen carpet? Well, let’s just say it is not a pretty image. More aptly, it is every homemaker’s worst nightmare (and the first thought that always pops to mind when watching guests drinking red wine near your white accent rug).
Let’s face it, unfortunate spills and mishaps are going to happen, especially in and around the kitchen. All of your major appliances are there (refrigerator, dish washer, sink, oven, etc), all the food is there, and more often than not…so are all the people. More and more in today’s society, the kitchen is taking on a greater social responsibility as well. Outdoor kitchens and living spaces are all the rage, and the ability to entertain and enjoy “staycations” is almost a must nowadays. So how do you toe the line between style and functionality, while simultaneously preventing as many kitchen accidents as you can? Well that, my friends, is where StoneDeck comes in.
