When you think of rugs, kitchens are probably not the first room that comes to mind, but kitchen rugs are becoming more popular. Kitchens can tend to have a clinical feel to them, and by adding a rug, you can make your kitchen feel more cozy and homely. Considering how much time you spend in your kitchen, as well as being functional, it’s important to make the space as inviting as possible. Adding a vibrant rug could be just the face-lift your kitchen needs, and it is much more affordable than painting or doing kitchen renovations!
As well as adding style to your kitchen - whether you have tiles, floating floorboards, hardwood, or vinyl - kitchen rugs or kitchen mats have many benefits. Putting a rug in your kitchen can be a great way to protect your floor from scratches and scuff marks, and if you drop dishes or glasses they are less likely to smash into a million pieces than if you drop them on hard tiles. Also, if you spill or splash water on the kitchen floor, having a rug down means you’ll be less likely to slip over in the water. Kitchens can be noisy rooms too, so having a kitchen rug can help buffer the sound and it will be warmer under your feet on those chilly winter mornings. You also spend a lot of time standing in the kitchen, so a rug can be more comfortable underfoot. For those who are renting an old apartment with stained or cracked tiles on the kitchen floor, kitchen rugs can be a great way to make your kitchen floor look more attractive. And, if you have an open plan kitchen, kitchen rugs can help define different spaces and they can look amazing under your kitchen table.
How to choose kitchen rugs?
There are several factors to consider when choosing kitchen rugs. One of the first things to consider is what size rug you need for your space. Whether you need a narrow runner, a small rug under the kitchen sink, or a large rug that covers your entire kitchen floor, kitchen rugs are available in a range of sizes so you’ll need to choose one that is right for your purpose and your kitchen.
You’ll also need to decide on the best material for your kitchen rug, whether that be a synthetic material or a natural material. As the kitchen is a place where you eat and prepare food, having the occasional spill is going to be hard to avoid, so you’ll want to choose kitchen rugs that are durable and either hide stains well or are easy to clean. Indoor/outdoor rugs can be a good option, as rugs designed for the outdoors tend to be very durable, for example, polypropylene rugs are low maintenance, stain-resistant, and very hard-wearing. Rugs made out of natural fibers such as jute or wool can be spot-cleaned easily but they are generally harder to care for than a polypropylene rug. Flatweave rugs are also great to use in kitchens as spills can be more easily seen and cleaned than if you spilled something on a thick shag or a high pile rug. Another decision you’ll need to make when buying a kitchen rug is what color and style will work best. Dark-colored rugs such as grey rugs or heavily patterned rugs can be less likely to show up stains. White rugs might not be the best choice for your kitchen, especially if you have young children! Some people prefer to pick a color that blends and matches well with your floor, if you want to make a bold statement though you could choose a contrasting color. A multi-colored rug on a white floor can look very striking!
