Vallee. Kitchen Rugs. November 02nd , 2017.
It is no surprise that the kitchen is often the focal point of many of the decorating and renovations that take place in a home, and the reason it happens is very simple, on average a woman spends two-thirds of her time in her home, in the kitchen. She may be cooking, cleaning or simply sitting helping her kids do homework, but she spends a lot of time in that room. It is no wonder we all want our kitchen to be as welcoming and comfortable as we can possibly make it. It is also no wonder why the kitchen often has so much character and life in it. If that is something you feel your kitchen is lacking, it may be time to spice it up a little bit with a coffee kitchen rug.
Kitchen area rugs can really add interest to what might otherwise be a dull part of the house, and can easily be swapped whenever a new look is desired. In our enthusiasm to buy, it often gets forgotten when deciding between navy, olive, antique or contemporary that these rugs will have to contend with lots of grime and grease, and that how we will clean them in the future should be our first priority. Washable rugs for the kitchen are vital in high traffic areas of the home that are prone to spillage. There are parts of the kitchen which are considerably less busy, and you could be thinking of putting your rug down in one of them, believing that washable kitchen rugs wont be needed here because chances of food spills are relatively slim. This is not so. As the tops of your kitchen wall cabinets can probably testify, everything in the kitchen attracts grease and needs to be cleaned periodically. The period of time which elapses between how often such surfaces are cleaned usually depends on how often people see them. In the case of rugs, this will mean frequently, so washable rugs are an important part of any kitchen.
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.
The volume of water which rugs can soak up is immense, with the consequences being a rug thats heavy enough to cause damage to your machine and void the manufacturers guarantee. The trend currently finding favor with home makers is for pre-shrunk washable cotton kitchen rugs, but dirt and grease are much more readily absorbed by cotton and other natural fibers, which obviously means that they will need to be laundered more frequently. Synthetic fibers generally repel spills, or simply let them penetrate slowly enough for you to be able to wipe them off before any damage is done. Furthermore, you will not see the fading often associated with frequent washing. Color and pattern have an impact on frequency of washing too, since darker colors and complicated patterns can disguise all kinds of stains. Obviously all rugs will need to be cleaned now and again though, as no color or pattern will reduce the effects of germs or smells.
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.
