Shopping for Rugs: Shopping for a kitchen rug can be both easy and difficult. For starters, if you are unsure regarding the color of the rug at the first glance then it is best you carry a shade along with you for your shopping. In that way you can be sure that it will fit in with the color scheme of your kitchen. Next, if you want a rug for a specific area of the kitchen, like before the oven, refrigerator or the sink, then take the measurements. 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.
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.
Although it may seem counterintuitive to place a rug in a kitchen, there are several distinct advantages to placing an area rug in this vital room! While rugs are often shunned in this work space because of the fear that they will "collect dirt," people spend a tremendous amount of time in the kitchen-mostly standing on their feet! Not only does a kitchen rug add a delightful, inviting feel to the "heart of the home," but a rug underfoot can help ease many of the common physical ailments that can result from prolonged periods of standing. If a kitchen has hard flooring, such as stone or ceramic tile, then its even more important that theres some cushion in the work zones and prep areas.
