How Should a Kitchen Rug Be?

The cleaning of the rugs comes at the beginning of the tricks that should be considered when choosing a kitchen rug. Kitchen rugs with low stain absorbency, washable and easily swept are always preferred more than others. However, what kind of yarn the kitchen rug is produced from, and the pile height are also very important. Especially using high pile carpets and rugs in the kitchen can cause problems in terms of hygiene, considering the crumbs and bacteria that may accumulate in it. So, what else should you consider when choosing a kitchen rug? Let's find out the details together.

Let's not forget that we are talking about a place with intensive use, where there is a stove, oven, dishwasher, sink and all kinds of sharp and piercing tools. Being useful is the first point we will pay attention to when choosing a kitchen rug. When we pour a pot of food on it, the color and pattern of the carpet doesn't really matter. For this reason, you can prefer the carpet models that can be washed in the washing machine. You can also prevent possible accidents by using a non-slip kitchen carpet.

Rugs are preferred as much as rugs are used in the kitchens. Do not ignore the use of rugs for the kitchen with its thin, light, easy-to-clean structure, and economical prices. Perhaps the only disadvantage of carpet is the possibility of slipping due to its thin structure, so you can enjoy the warm ambiance created by your rugs by using non-slip carpet.

What Color Should a Kitchen Rug Be?

Another point to consider when choosing a rug for the kitchen is its color. Of the components that make up your kitchen:


  • Cabinet color
  • Floor color
  • Counter color
  • Table - chair color
  • Accessory - Color of electronics
  • Curtain color


Don't let the length of the list scare you, if you generally consider your cabinet and floor tones, you can reach the right results :) In a kitchen dominated by dark colors, you can choose a creamy white kitchen carpet in light colors, it may be a bit difficult in terms of cleaning and use, but your eyes will open while you cook delicious meals with the freshness it brings to your space: )

In kitchens where light cabinets and floor tones are dominant, you can create a tidy and stylish look by laying rugs in brown, gray, burgundy, navy blue and dark green tones.

If your kitchen cabinet, countertop, and floor tones are brown-beige, you can either use brown-cream tones or use vibrant red, blue, green, purple, or black tones to create a contrast. We strongly recommend that you consider using orange carpets in kitchens dominated by gray anthracite tones, alternatively you can look at yellow, red, or green colors. By choosing a kitchen rug in a color that is opposite to the color that dominates the kitchen, you can create a wonderful decoration with contrasting colors and provide an attractive appearance to the kitchen with a rug.

How Should You Choose from The Kitchen Rug Models?

First, let's try to recognize and define the general decoration of your kitchen. Do you have a minimal kitchen dominated by geometric patterns and lines, or do you have an active style with floral floral patterns in mind? You can use abstract and geometric designs in a kitchen decorated with simple lines. On the other hand, you can add some movement with modern vintage patterns. If you like contrasts, you can create an energetic and remarkable space by getting support from authentic classical motifs. If you have a classic kitchen ambiance with more carved inlays, you might consider going two ways. You can highlight your furniture by using plain, plain, and minimal rugs, and complete your decoration with kilims or rugs in classical design.

How Should the Kitchen Rug Measures Be?

The important thing here is to leave a gap of at least 20-30 inch between the counter and the carpet. As we mentioned above, check that there is enough space between the counter and the carpet to prevent problems such as splashes from kitchen parts such as the stove, sink, etc., and crumbs that may spill from the counter to the rug.


Under Table Rug

In some kitchens, the dining room or dining table is also in the kitchen area, in this case, you may consider using a carpet under the kitchen table. As a rug maker, our advice is to leave that area without a rug, taking into account the difficulties of using carpet under the table. But if you think there is a lack of decoration and you need a carpet, you can use a carpet under your dining table. There are two alternatives for this, if you are only going to make a decorative choice, it is enough to step on the rug when the chairs are closed. When you are sitting, the back legs of the chair may stay out of the carpet. Or, if you love the carpet, you can press both the front and rear legs of the J chairs onto the rug, considering the position in which they are in use. If your table is round, use a round kitchen rug to form a circle in the space.


How are the Kitchen Rug Prices?

The prices of kitchen rugs are quite variable. Each of the features we mentioned above is a factor in determining the price of the rug. Sometimes there can be a difference between a hand-woven kitchen rug and a machine-woven rug, a rug and a digitally printed rug, a rug made of natural yarns and products using synthetic yarns.
