Washable Kitchen Rugs

Kitchen Accent Rugs



The kitchen is one of the most frequently used rooms in the home, and as a result, many people try to make it as welcoming and comfortable as possible. A good way to liven up and decorate your kitchen is by using kitchen accent rugs.


Many kitchen accent rugs serve a functional purpose. One type of functional kitchen accent rug is the padded kitchen rug; this is a rug that features thick foam padding below the decorative top of the rug.


Padded kitchen rugs are often placed in areas of the kitchen that get a lot of foot traffic or involve much standing for long periods of time, such as in front of the sink or range. 

These padded kitchen rugs make it much more bearable for people in the kitchen to stand for long period of time, but the rugs themselves also feature decorative scenes to liven up the kitchen.

Another functional yet decorative kitchen accent rug style is one that can also be used as a mat on which to wipe shoes when entering the house. These are popular in homes with a back door that opens from the kitchen to the backyard or garage; the accent rug helps to stop dirt from the outdoors tracking through the entire kitchen.


Some people may prefer just to purchase a kitchen accent rug that will be used to liven up their cooking and eating area, without the need for an additional function. These rugs are available in countless sizes, from square to rectangle to circular; made from many different materials, like cotton, woven or braided fabrics, or wool; in varying colors and styles, like one-color, patterned, or geometric; and featuring different decorative scenes, such as whimsical farmyard depictions, relaxing beach scenes, or artistic representations of kitchen tools.


Kitchen accent rugs are relatively easy to find, although because of the wide range of accent rugs available, it can be difficult to find a certain size or style if you have something in particular in mind, including washable kitchen accent rugs. If this is the case, it may be your best bet to purchase your new kitchen accent rug from an online store as they tend to have a broader inventory available and searching for a particular style will be much quicker on the Internet than going from store to store to see what each one has.


However, if you are more flexible in terms of the size or design of a kitchen accent rug, you can go to any number of stores in your area and find this item. Large retailers such as Target and Wal-Mart have many inexpensive options, and higher-end home furnishing stores like Pottery Barn and Crate & Barrel have many styles for a bit more money.
