I purchased the 4X6 size for our small, vacation house kitchen. The blue color is not too gray, but a nice shade of wedgewood/denim blue. I used a few books to weigh down two corners & then had no trouble with it lying flat. These indoor outdoor rugs are very durable & I expect this one will hold up well in the kitchen.
This rug was purchased to use outside the trailer while camping. It is perfect: 1) it keeps dirt from being tracked into the trailer, 2) it is very attractive, 3) it stands up to all weather conditions and 4) it is easily cleaned and rolls up to store while traveling.
