Moldy oldie out... Pretty in!

My kitchen floor is 4" taupe (really dusy rosey pinkish) tiles separated by the ugliest grout on the planet. Together they make a kitchen floor that shows every single spec of everything and is a bitch to keep clean. Plus, not comfy to walk on. So, I've pretty much always had carpet on it.

About 10 years ago I bought this fairly cheap but OH SO soft and great on the feet chenile carpet. It's great to walk on but kind of a bitch to clean because it fights the vacuum and hates the broom. But, I have a cleaning lady :).  She hates it, too, but what can she do?  Also it kind of slides around and when Zoey does her run and land it bunches up in the corners.

Finally, a couple of weeks ago I was down on the floor to retrieve something and noticed that it is stained and disgusting. So I started shopping for a replacement.  I found one at Home Depot that I liked but wasn't sure I loved and, since it was online, I couldn't tell if it was ok to walk on.  It's an indoor/outdoor. I line my terrace with two of their very cheapest indoor/outdoor rugs and they are perfect for that and nice to walk on with bare feet.

And then, they went on sale 15% off and if I hate it I can roll it up and take it the store down the road and return it. So I pulled the trigger.  It arrived today and YEAH!!!!  Nice to walk on, bright and cheery, vacuum loving and doesn't slip/slide/bunch up.  Win Win Win.

This photo does not show how very disgusting this plum number acutally is. Trust me.  $50 well spent and ohhhh how happy Amira will be next time she comes.
