Have any thoughts on rugs in the kitchen?

Galley kitchens. There's a lot to be said for galley kitchens. Small, compact, easy to keep clean. They positively scream for runners.

Right. Not a kitchen but I'm sure this is the eat-in end of a kitchen.
This subdued tone on tone antique look would be unforgiving given our style of cooking.
Not saying anyone in our house is messy, just enthusiastic.

Barring a spilt pot of red sauce, this rug is very forgiving.
In general I'm a big fan of rugs just about anywhere but when it comes to kitchen work zones, I worry. But as most of these examples bear out, lots of pattern and color will hide lots of normal kitchen mishaps.
I am at the beginning of the end of my kitchen project (see a teaser in this post). Next week the new hardwood floors will be finished and there's a nice space just begging for a rug.
Do you have a rug in the work or traffic areas of your kitchen? And if so, how is it working out? And if you don't, I'd love to hear your thoughts on this weighty subject anyway. Our kitchen floor is tile, with pretty wide grout lines, and no rug. As of yet.
Thanks for reading,
