Rugs in the kitchen: yes or no?

Whether it's a walkway between the kitchen island and the cabinets, a small rug in front of the sink, or a large rug that covers the entire floor, placing a rug in the kitchen can be a great way to add color, texture and comfort to your kitchen. environment.

And while space is so prone to spills and dirt, if you choose the right type of rug, it can make the space even better.

Here's what you should consider.

1. The size

Step one: Measure your space. If you are looking for a treadmill, measure the length of the aisle and subtract a few inches on the sides (between three to six inches) to allow space between the cabinets and the carpet.

If the rug is under chairs, a good rule of thumb is to add a foot and a half longer to keep the chairs still on the rug when you put them in and out.

2. The material

In general, shorthair rugs are the best choice for kitchens as they tend to be easier to clean than taller rugs.

Outdoor rugs are a great choice as they are water resistant and dirty.

Luxos Urbanos also has three types of carpet that are washable at 30º, the Dakar, Cairo and Berlin, just be careful not to put them in centrifuges and not to dry in the sun and heat.


3. The potential for slips / washable-non-slip-cairo carpet / custom-made

You can order a non-slip finish on customizable rugs by simply adding it to your quote request.

The carpets mentioned in the above item (Dakar, Cairo and Berlin) already have anti-slip rubber bottom.

4. Your decor

The great advantage of a rug is that it is a way to change the look of a space with a relatively low investment.

If your kitchen is all white and needs a color injection, go crazy and choose shades of red, blue or yellow.

In terms of style, you can choose something that offers a contrast (for example, a casual rug in a more formal kitchen) to pull space in a different direction.

The only thing we don't advise is choosing a carpet in a lighter shade, as this will show stains more easily than one in a darker color.
