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.
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.

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.
