There are many rugs specifically designed for the kitchen. These kitchen rugs are designed for high traffic areas and do not show wear and tear as easily as other rugs. When looking for a rug or rugs to go in your kitchen, a few things should be kept in mind to make sure you purchase the best rug for the money. You want to make sure that the rug is made from good material. Typically, the washable rugs are the best choice for the kitchen area. They not only can stand up to the wear and tear, they are easy to clean up. Depending on the size of the rug, they can easily be thrown in the washing machine or taken outside and hand washed when they get dirty.
The washable rugs are especially important to consider if you are looking for a throw rug. The washable rugs are specifically designed to withstand the washing machine without the ends becoming frayed. If you do not get a rug that is machine washable, it will have to be taken to the dry cleaners every time it gets dirty. Rugs in the kitchen usually take the brunt of the storm when it comes to dirt, food, etc. due to it being a high traffic area. Washable rugs should be given careful consideration here because they are not only easy to clean up, they are not as expensive as the other models. This gives you the liberty of changing them out with the seasons or discarding them should they get something on them that cant be easily cleaned. In summation, washable rugs come in many shapes, styles and colors to fit almost any area you can think of. While this article was focused strictly on the kitchen area, washable rugs are also available for large areas as well as doorways that are high traffic areas.
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 also need to take care of colors when you are washing these rugs. If you wash both the light and dark colors together, there are chances that their color would get mixed and result in a spoiled look for both types. Dark colors must be washed at a low warm, delicate temperature less than 90 degrees Fahrenheit and wash the light colors at a temperature higher than 105 degree Fahrenheit. For efficient cleaning, dont forget to rinse kitchen rugs when washing. If your kitchen rugs are unusually delicate, rinse with care and dont make their fibers strip off. And also, you need to hang these rugs for drying instead of tumble drying them.
As for the designs, well anything from a braided rug to flower patterns, from fruit prints and shapes to even animal themes would match well with the country look. When you choose a colour combination, remember that earthy tones will add extra appeal by infusing warmth to the entire décor. Rich reds and soft greens can be contrasted with perky yellows and mellow browns! When you have the entire ensemble together, all you need to do is place everything nicely. The country kitchen rugs can be placed in front of the counter or the sink so that when you cook or clean, there is no fear of slipping and your feet are on a cushy pile away from the hard floor. Being on your feet all day can be quite tiring for you.
