Treat Your Toes To A Kitchen Rug

We’ve all heard the arguments against a kitchen carpet. Decorators, cooks, and homemakers maintain that carpeting has no business in a busy kitchen. Those same folks may be persuaded, however, to add a little character and coziness with a cute kitchen rug.

Whether to have a kitchen rug is largely a matter of your personal preference. Some people just can’t deal with the thought of having a rug in a room where people are cooking and eating. Even the smallest spill can result in a lifelong stain, or a sticky mess that can take forever to clean. Those folks might be persuaded to change their ways, however, if they could see just how pretty the right rug can be in a kitchen.

Kitchen rugs are no longer the frail floor coverings that they once were. Today’s rug materials are more durable and made of easy to clean fibers. Spills are easily wiped up and stains don’t penetrate as deeply or quickly as with those cotton rugs of the past.

With all of the different kinds of kitchen rugs that are available on today’s market, it’s easy to find one that will suit your both your family’s lifestyle, and your kitchen’s personality. From fruity themes to classic country decor to sleek, modern styles, there is bound to be a rug out there that will complement the design and color palette of your kitchen.

Are you about to begin a redecorating project? Kitchens in transition can benefit from the character and coziness of a new rug, too. If you current theme is bright floral and you’re about to transform the room with a palette of natural materials and neutral tones, find a rug to fit both decorating schemes. A neutral rug with accents of green foliage can work well today, and when your project is complete.

Don’t forget, kitchen rugs are usually very reasonably priced; so there’s no reason why you can’t treat yourself to one today, and then buy another when you’ve completed your redecorating. Just put the old rug inside an outer door to absorb wet footprints.

Regardless of your decorating taste, a kitchen rug can easily create warmth and add a little character to your room. Look for a fun theme to jazz up your kitchen, or to provide the perfect finishing touch to your recent renovation. If your home is on the market, the right kitchen rug is an inexpensive way to make your house more appealing to buyers seeking warmth and comfort.

If you’re one of those people who stress about spills and stains in the kitchen, stop worrying. The warmth of a kitchen rug on a chilly morning is certainly worth the effort. Your toes will thank you!
