Clarice. Kitchen Rugs. October 09th , 2017.
Everyone wants a kitchen that has character and one way to give your kitchen character is with unique and interesting accessories. While canister sets, potted plants and potholders can add interest to your kitchen, its the kitchen rugs that can really give it some zing. No matter what kind of kitchen floors you have, you can use small area rugs to unify your theme or color scheme. For a country kitchen, braided rugs or rugs with a theme like sunflowers or strawberries can help add interest. A modern kitchen could use a sisal rug. And even in Oriental rug could be used to add color and splash to Victorian kitchen. No matter what style your kitchen is, theres sure to be rug for you.
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 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.
In the market are all kinds of kitchen rugs. There is one in particular that I was reading about in one of my favorite sites called anti fatigue kitchen rug. There are rugs available for every room and they come with a special floor gel that is sure to reduce the discomfort that comes with standing on hard floors. They reduce pain causing pressure by absorbing shock. Their revolutionary gel filled core does these jobs. It has a durable synthetic leather surface that is easy to clean. It is also stain resistant. Its non slip bottom keeps the rug in place. It has a bacteria killing additive that kill mildew and mold.
While the idea of a kitchen rug making for a clean kitchen might seem contradictory, it can be. That is why the kind of area rug one needs to get should be a washable one. Imagine a non washable area rug for your kitchen where stains, spills and all kinds of dirt gather and collect! Kitchen rugs are machine washable which is quite a big plus for those kitchen rug owners who dont have the time or patience in cleaning and drying a rug manually. It is advisable not to put the rug in a dryer as the rug tends to unravel when subjected to the heat of the dryer. Also, stains, especially, wine stains need to be washed off immediately to prevent them from being a permanent stain in your rug.
