Kitchen Rugs Buying Guide

From under your feet while you're doing dishes to under a table while you're eating breakfast, kitchen rugs can work both practical and beautiful magic. This overview will help guide you on your shopping journey.

Types of Kitchen Rugs

Types of Kitchen Rugs

While a kitchen isn't the best place for carpeting, it's a perfect room to include rugs of varying sizes, shapes, and colors. A rug in a kitchen can add unexpected pattern, provide welcome underfoot cushioning, or offer a center point to an eat-in nook in an expansive space. Even so, different rugs work better in different spots in the kitchen, which is why this quick guide of types—area, sink, door, corner, and rug tiles—should help.

Area Rug

An area rug is larger, sized to fit under an eat-in table in a kitchen. These are often decorative, intended to add pattern or color to a kitchen or tie together a decorating scheme.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

There are so many factors to consider in any purchase for the kitchen—kitchen rugs included. But that research and time will pay off in hardworking pieces that last and make your cooking and cleanup more enjoyable. As you consider the right kitchen rugs for your room, review cushioning, washability, textured/nonskid surfaces, and reversible features. Here are the factors you might want to consider.

Cushioning

Many kitchen rugs offer padding of some sort that's designed to alleviate stress and strain from standing too long. Particularly in front of a sink or stove, this cushioning is a welcome addition.

Washability

Kitchen rugs undergo a lot of wear and tear—spills and stains, walking and standing. That's why it's helpful to select those that can be easily washed on a regular basis.

Textured/Nonskid Surfaces

Small spills, wet feet—these are part of the daily routine of people coming and going in a kitchen. A kitchen rug that is textured on the back with a nonskid surface will help alleviate the danger of slipping.

Reversible

Some kitchen rugs are reversible, allowing you to showcase different patterns or colors with the flick of a wrist. This flexibility may be a welcome way for you to quickly change the underfoot look of your kitchen.
