Choosing A Rug For Your Kitchen
Kitchens are often the heart of the home and typically serves many purposes. It’s where we cook, where we eat, where we make cups of tea and coffee and where we socialise and interact with our family and loved ones.
But with so many purposes comes a lot of people, a lot of dirty shoes and a lot of opportunity for spills and accidents.
This is why wall to wall carpeting is generally not considered a practical solution for a modern kitchen. Most households opt for an easy to clean hard flooring solution which can quickly be swept and mopped on a regular basis without the need for expensive and time-consuming carpet cleaning.
But there's no need to abandon the luxury and warmth that a carpet offers altogether. The right shape rug can give you the best of both worlds, leaving exposed the areas most likely to fall victim to spills and food debris, while providing visual relief and warmth under your feet.
Adding a rug to your kitchen can also be a great way to give it a new look and feel, making it a perfect option when you want a little bit of a shakeup without the expense of installing an entirely new kitchen.
Picking a Kitchen Rug
Here at Land of Rugs, we have a range of quality rugs to suit any kitchen and budget. The most commonly used style of rug used in kitchens is flatweave. The lack of pile makes for easy cleaning and means these rugs can withstand very heavy foot traffic.
It is also important to remember that safety is paramount in the kitchen. Therefore, any rug you choose should be low profile as to not pose a tripping hazard, it's also a really good idea to invest in an anti-slip underlay mat to stop the rug from moving about under your feet or furniture.
Finally, it is crucial to ensure that your rug is made from hardwearing and preferably water-resistant material to ensure it can withstand whatever your kitchen area has to throw at it. However, just because the rug is being placed in a kitchen it does not always mean the rug needs to be water-resistant. Here at Land of Rugs we provide a wide array of washable rugs, too. These rugs are made from 100% synthetic materials like polyester and polypropylene which means they are completely safe to be placed in a wash cycle to remove any stains that have appeared on the rug.
In this article, we are going to provide you with some of our most popular rugs which are perfect for use in the kitchen environment.
