When you are looking for rugs online make sure that they are made of a material that will not stain easily. You might also want to consider buying a colour that will not show stains up - so unfortunately that means no white! The Internet is great when you want to find a bargain, but you also need to remember that you wont physically see the rug before you buy so you need to make sure that you are 100% certain of the size of rug you need as well as the style and colour. If you are going to be cooking a lot in your kitchen then it might be worth getting several washable kitchen rugs so that when one is being washed you can use another one.
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.
