Vallee. Kitchen Rugs. October 09th , 2017.
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.
In case you have a very ethnic or an elaborately themed kitchen in Italian or Victorian style, then it is possible that you would want a very decorative rug to go with the theme and it is likely to be of a delicate and expensive material like wool or linen. In such cases, brush the rug regularly with a soft brush to prevent the accumulation of dirt. Then air it regularly and leave it in the sunlight weekly for natural disinfection. If at all you have to clean it, than use a very mild detergent to wash off the stain.
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.
Plants are a very positive addition to your kitchen. If you have a window in your kitchen and the available counter space, add a bit of life with a plant. If you cant remember to water them, set an alarm on your cell phone once a week that says to water plants. Everybody has a cell phone now a day and uses the alarm or calendar features on them quite frequently. A plant doesnt only look beautiful, but it cleans the air of the pollution and gives you oxygen in the atmosphere. A kitchen rug can be a great solution for a kitchen that has damaged or worn out floors. These rugs can also help keep someone from slipping on the floor when it is wet and is an added comfort when you are standing for a long period of time in front of the counter, stove, or sink. Rugs are often placed at the front door whenever you come in, in front of the refrigerator or even in front of the sink for extra comfort while you do the dishes.
Before shopping for a kitchen rug, you must make a note of a few things so that you can buy the best possible item for your kitchen.The Kitchen Rugs should be of a washable material or completely water proof. This is because that unlike any other carpet or rugs in the house this is the most likely to get dirty because of all the oil and grease and smoke from the kitchen and it is all but natural that fruit juice, oily gravy or water can spill on to it at any time. Hence, before looking for any other characteristics, this should be taken care of.
