Gaetane. Kitchen Rugs. September 30th , 2017.
A typical kitchen always tends to be messy since its primary uses are for food preparation and dish washing. Therefore, organizing a kitchen may seem a challenging task. But organizing a kitchen can be easier than one thinks. A few basic things do need to be kept in mind when starting out. What type of decor used in the kitchen would set the general mood and tone of the room and since it is the kitchen, the atmosphere surely needed would be a happy and bright mood. A kitchen also always needs to be clean and every kitchen design should be focused with that thought in mind. Wall decors should have the ambience of brightness thus the need for light bright colors (both paint and design). Flooring would be designed so as to make the room always look spic and span and since the idea is to keep and make the kitchen look clean always, the idea of a kitchen rug can be a most appropriate element for a clean kitchen.
When you go to a local shop to buy area rugs, you can come across various kinds of rugs of various style such as contemporary rugs, designer rugs, braided rugs, antique rugs, animal print rugs, kitchen rugs, shag rugs, etc. With so many options available, you will not be able to decide which one is the best one for your home. Moreover, when you visit websites that sell area rugs, you will not get a chance to physically touch and feel the product. The more rugs you checkout on such sites, the more confused you will be on deciding on a rug for your home.
Shopping for Rugs: Shopping for a kitchen rug can be both easy and difficult. For starters, if you are unsure regarding the color of the rug at the first glance then it is best you carry a shade along with you for your shopping. In that way you can be sure that it will fit in with the color scheme of your kitchen. Next, if you want a rug for a specific area of the kitchen, like before the oven, refrigerator or the sink, then take the measurements. Also, if available, and though a bit more expensive, try getting water proof variety rugs for the kitchen, because with so much of activity either water or some other food item likes sauces and gravy will spill into it at some point of time, and then it will have to be washed.
The volume of water which rugs can soak up is immense, with the consequences being a rug thats heavy enough to cause damage to your machine and void the manufacturers guarantee. The trend currently finding favor with home makers is for pre-shrunk washable cotton kitchen rugs, but dirt and grease are much more readily absorbed by cotton and other natural fibers, which obviously means that they will need to be laundered more frequently. Synthetic fibers generally repel spills, or simply let them penetrate slowly enough for you to be able to wipe them off before any damage is done. Furthermore, you will not see the fading often associated with frequent washing. Color and pattern have an impact on frequency of washing too, since darker colors and complicated patterns can disguise all kinds of stains. Obviously all rugs will need to be cleaned now and again though, as no color or pattern will reduce the effects of germs or smells.
You should sit in the middle of these two types of people. If you use something almost everyday, such as a coffee pot or your food processor every night with supper, then keep it out. On the other hand if your new state of the art blender is only being used once a week or only for the holidays find a home for it within your cabinet space hidden below the scenes. Remember though that items that you have on top of your counter can also be clustered into categories that are relative to their function. If in the morning you make toast and coffee, and then have them plugged into the same outlets as they will make lovely companions to each other. If youre a mother that cooks every night, your food processor and electric can opener would make another great cluster with the same outlet.
