Rugs2Go rugs can help you to change up the look of your kitchen space. If you just need pattern, choose one in the colors already in your kitchen, but with a graphic design. If you need to add a bit of color, select a rug that fits the tone exactly, or offers a contrast to pull the space in a different direction.

Safety First

Whether or not you have kids running around all day, kitchen floors can be dangerous especially when wet. Incorporating the right type of rug can provide a little friction for slippery floors.If the rug doesn’t have a non-slip backing, place it on top of a non-slip rug pad to make sure it doesn’t slide around while you are cooking. 

Whether it’s a runner between the island and the cabinets, a small mat in front of the sink, or a full-size rug covering up hardwood, adding a rug to your kitchen can be a great way to make your kitchen a safer area to work. 

All in all, as the kitchen space is prone to spills, germs and messes, choosing the right rug is important. It can enhance the space without adding to your workload. 

 In general, flat-weave rugs are the best choice for kitchens. Flat-weave rugs tend to be easier to clean than rugs with a higher pile. Need more ideas and inspiration for your kitchen space?
