Before shopping for a kitchen rug, you must make a note of a few things so that you can buy the best possible item for your kitchen.The Kitchen Rugs should be of a washable material or completely water proof. This is because that unlike any other carpet or rugs in the house this is the most likely to get dirty because of all the oil and grease and smoke from the kitchen and it is all but natural that fruit juice, oily gravy or water can spill on to it at any time. Hence, before looking for any other characteristics, this should be taken care of.
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.
Shopping for Rugs: Shopping for a kitchen rug can be both easy and difficult.

Also, if available, and though a bit more expensive, try getting water proof variety rugs for the kitchen, because with so much of activity either water or some other food item likes sauces and gravy will spill into it at some point of time, and then it will have to be washed.
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.

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.
