The kitchen is a place of baking, chopping, frying, mixing, pouring, eating and drinking. In other words, the kitchen is a place of mess; spillages, crumbs, grease and grime. Keeping the kitchen tidy and clean is difficult to do, even more so if you have children or animals. So, is it the best idea to cover up that easy clean wooden or tiled floor with a rug?
Let’s look at the pros and cons...
Design. Rugs are a great way of adding colour and texture to an otherwise bland space; kitchen floors are usually a pretty neutral shade so a rug can give a spark of colour, tying in with your kitchen accessories.
Comfort. You spend a lot of time standing in your kitchen, and a cosy rug will definitely be more comfortable on the old feet.
Mess. The crumbs and the bacteria that can get harvested in a rug in a kitchen is pretty gross and depending on the type of rug, you may have difficulty cleaning effectively.
If you do decide to go for a rug in the kitchen, it’s important to choose the right one. Style is important, Pile length is also something you need to think about.
Pile Length. We would recommend a low pile rug rather than a rug with a thick pile.Think of the crumbs! The longer the pile the harder it is to get them out of of your rug.
Look at our rugs with no pile and our Antique rugs / Vintage rugs that will last for many more centuries to come.
