Karastan Area Rugs for the Kitchen
Think rugs are only for libraries, sitting rooms, television rooms and bedrooms? Think again. Karastan area rugs are practical in all rooms of the house, including the kitchen.
Kitchen rugs can be rectangular, oval, circular or square-shaped and are an inexpensive way to add some color to one of the most-used spaces in your home.
Rugs are usually placed under the kitchen table or in the sink or dishwasher area to cushion your feet when you’re standing while cooking or sitting and dining. Kitchen rugs are useful in that they can prevent dent marks from appearing on cork or vinyl tile flooring if a knife or other sharp object is dropped and can soak up spills and prevent slips.
Always make sure kitchen rugs are made of a resilient and durable material since they’ll receive a lot of foot traffic; a rug made of polypropylene fibers is a good choice. Choose kitchen rugs that are machine washable so they can be easily washed if stains happen, and make sure rugs have a good rubber backing so that they stay firmly in place and don’t cause trips or falls.
Area rugs will collect dirt and dust, so make sure you vacuum them regularly or just give them a good beat and shake outside.
