Vallee. 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.
While buying a rug you should be pretty clear where you are going to place it and how much traffic that place will get. The more traffic the place receives, the faster the rugs will get worn out. In such a case, you will have to invest on a rug that will last long for that kind of location. If the area where you are going to place the rug receives less traffic, you can go for a stylish rug and care less about the quality of the rug.Do you want a stylish looking rug or a simple one? The answer to this question depends on whether you want the carpet to be the focal point of your room or not. If you want it to be the focal point, you can go for a rug that looks beautiful and stylish. If you feel the rug is just going to remain in the background of your room, you can buy a simple one. Pets can completely ruin the beauty of the carpet.
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.
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.
You can change the entire look of the room with a change in the rugs. So if you have a monotone color scheme in the kitchen, add dash of brightness with a rug in bold, colorful pattern. Or if you think your kitchen too small, add a sense of space with a light colored rug. You just have to use your imagination. The kitchen and bathroom are probably two of the most common rooms of any home that have rugs. Rugs are generally used most on hard surfaces and they are used for a number of reasons. When shopping for kitchen area rugs for your home there are plenty of things to consider that will help you out in the long run. Its best not to rush into purchasing one or settling for one because you may end up wanting or having to replace it within the next year.
