Yolette. Kitchen Rugs. October 27th , 2017.
Kitchen area rugs can really add interest to what might otherwise be a dull part of the house, and can easily be swapped whenever a new look is desired. In our enthusiasm to buy, it often gets forgotten when deciding between navy, olive, antique or contemporary that these rugs will have to contend with lots of grime and grease, and that how we will clean them in the future should be our first priority. Washable rugs for the kitchen are vital in high traffic areas of the home that are prone to spillage. There are parts of the kitchen which are considerably less busy, and you could be thinking of putting your rug down in one of them, believing that washable kitchen rugs wont be needed here because chances of food spills are relatively slim. This is not so. As the tops of your kitchen wall cabinets can probably testify, everything in the kitchen attracts grease and needs to be cleaned periodically. The period of time which elapses between how often such surfaces are cleaned usually depends on how often people see them. In the case of rugs, this will mean frequently, so washable rugs are an important part of any kitchen.
Kitchen rugs have to be more than just pretty. They should give the ease of maintenance too. Washable, durable and resistance to stains are major prerequisites. You can check the washing instructions when you purchase the piece. Machine washable kitchen rugs will prove to be most convenient. You could easily pop the dirty rug in the washing machine and take out a cleaned, good as new one! The higher the rugs resistance to stains, the better it would be. The only care you need to take particularly with your coffee kitchen rug is that the colours dont run. You could also hand wash these rugs if you are not sure of the colourfastness.
Usually kitchen rugs have anti-skid coating on the underside so that when you place the rug in front of the sink, there is no fear of slipping on any water that spills out of the basin. In fact you could even go in for a rug pad, which will also extend the life of your coffee kitchen rug. Other places where you could place the rugs are - the door leading into the kitchen, in front of the counter where you stand for long periods of time, in front of the oven or the refrigerator. When you go to buy your coffee kitchen rug, it is advisable to carry some colour matching or swatches from the existing décor. This will help you find your perfectly shaded rug without too much of a hassle. You can find different materials like wool, cotton, nylon to name a few. Pick one that you think youll be able to take care of and which will also go with your interiors.
It is no surprise that the kitchen is often the focal point of many of the decorating and renovations that take place in a home, and the reason it happens is very simple, on average a woman spends two-thirds of her time in her home, in the kitchen. She may be cooking, cleaning or simply sitting helping her kids do homework, but she spends a lot of time in that room. It is no wonder we all want our kitchen to be as welcoming and comfortable as we can possibly make it. It is also no wonder why the kitchen often has so much character and life in it. If that is something you feel your kitchen is lacking, it may be time to spice it up a little bit with a coffee kitchen rug.
Be sure to also buy a rug pad that will prevent the rug from slipping and will also make your rug last longer. Taking good care of your kitchen rug can make it last a long time. Most rugs can be machine washed and in fact this is something you should look for when purchasing a rug. Care must be taken when washing rugs with colors as the colors could fade and might also run and stain other parts of the rug or other things that you have in the wash. Most rugs should not be machine dried as they are fragile and can be damaged so hanging them outside is the best bet. A kitchen rug can help add a warmth to your kitchen and it can also be a fun way to change or your décor. Tired of the braided rug? Then toss it and get one thats a little more modern. Luckily these little rugs are not expensive allowing you to change out your rugs for different seasons, holidays or when you get sick of them.
