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.
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.
Plants are a very positive addition to your kitchen. If you have a window in your kitchen and the available counter space, add a bit of life with a plant. If you cant remember to water them, set an alarm on your cell phone once a week that says to water plants. Everybody has a cell phone now a day and uses the alarm or calendar features on them quite frequently. A plant doesnt only look beautiful, but it cleans the air of the pollution and gives you oxygen in the atmosphere. A kitchen rug can be a great solution for a kitchen that has damaged or worn out floors. These rugs can also help keep someone from slipping on the floor when it is wet and is an added comfort when you are standing for a long period of time in front of the counter, stove, or sink. Rugs are often placed at the front door whenever you come in, in front of the refrigerator or even in front of the sink for extra comfort while you do the dishes.
The washable rugs are especially important to consider if you are looking for a throw rug. The washable rugs are specifically designed to withstand the washing machine without the ends becoming frayed. If you do not get a rug that is machine washable, it will have to be taken to the dry cleaners every time it gets dirty. Rugs in the kitchen usually take the brunt of the storm when it comes to dirt, food, etc. due to it being a high traffic area. Washable rugs should be given careful consideration here because they are not only easy to clean up, they are not as expensive as the other models. This gives you the liberty of changing them out with the seasons or discarding them should they get something on them that cant be easily cleaned. In summation, washable rugs come in many shapes, styles and colors to fit almost any area you can think of. While this article was focused strictly on the kitchen area, washable rugs are also available for large areas as well as doorways that are high traffic areas.
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.
