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.
While it is true that a kitchen floor receives a good deal of dirt and debris, simply selecting a washable or stain-resistant fiber will remove concerns about an area rugs practicality in the kitchen. Indoor/Outdoor fibers are an excellent choice, as are synthetic blends, jute, sisal, and even wool! Any of these options will be either easy to clean or stain repellant. In selecting a kitchen area rug, be sure to choose a low pile. Densely piled rugs, such as Berber, are good for kitchens. Area rugs constructed from woven natural fibers, such as jute or sisal, are also compatible with kitchen use. Cut pile or shag carpets are the only varieties that should be avoided; their deep, plush construction makes them likely to collect crumbs and increase kitchen cleaning duties. On the other hand, woven, looped, or low pile area rugs will need little more than a quick shake to clean and refresh them. Whatever material is chosen for a kitchen area rug, its very important that the rug has a properly sized non-slip rug pad. Not only will the rug pad give a little extra padding for those working and walking in the kitchen, but its the best way to ensure that a kitchen accent rug provides both visual interest and sure footing.
As has already been discussed, kitchen area rugs arent just there for decorative reasons and do have their uses. Clearly, time spent trying to wash and dry your rug is going to mean a period of some inconvenience, and its usually during the colder months when mud and dirt is most likely to be trodden in that its hardest to find room for large rugs to dry. Do take the time to check that label to make sure a rug is machine washable before you buy, and youll save yourself a lot of hassle in the long run. Its sometimes tempting to put a non-machine washable rug into the washing machine, and this must be avoided at all costs, even if you feel replacement will be your only remaining choice because the rug has become so dirty anyway.
