Simply put, kitchen rugs are a great way to decorate. If you are like many homeowners, you may have a hard time decorating your kitchen to make it look the way that you want. Adding a rug is a great way to not only spruce up the floor, but to also pull the entire room together. It is amazing to think that so many people overlook rugs, but it happens time and time again. As you probably know, your kitchen has to put up with a lot of traffic day in and day out. After all, people want to eat when they are hungry. Through the use of an area rug you will have the ability to protect your primary floor from a lot of traffic. Although you will not have rugs placed all over the floor, if you lay them strategically, you will be able to take advantage of this benefit.
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.
Nowadays, the rugs can also be machine washed and it saves a lot of labor as well as compared to any other rug in the house, the kitchen rug is likely to get dirty faster because of all the activity. Care of Kitchen Rugs: The care of the kitchen rugs depends a lot on the material from which it is made of. So if you have a waterproof variety, then it can be easily washed, perhaps even every week. On the other hand, if you have a more decorative rug with intricate embroidery and colorful patterns, or a hand painted rug, you should be very gentle while cleaning it. It should be brushed lightly each day, and exposed to the sun occasionally for natural disinfectant, as water may be not be suitable for such materials.
Another thing to keep in mind when you buy a country kitchen rug is the size of your room. You wouldnt want one that is too bog or too small - just the right sized rug. You can choose from different fabrics and styles such as nylon, cotton or wool or a combination of these, in fact there is something called woven rag rugs that are best suited for use in kitchens. Select the one that can be maintained easily - machine washable probably. Also be careful while washing - machine or by hand - rubbing causes some colours to run and this may stain other clothes.
