Placing Oriental Rugs In Kitchens

Posted in Tips & Trends

When people think of area rugs for kitchen, they tend to picture sisal rugs or berber rugs.  But many people are surprised when oriental rugs are a great option for kitchens. Now not antique rug, but a wool oriental area rug is resilient rug. It is a practical choice that adds elegance to any style kitchen from traditional to contemporary. Oriental rugs are stain resistant, durable, easy to clean, and versatile.

In a recent Apartment Therapy post the design resource bloggers outlined the benefits of durable oriental area rugs in kitchens:

STAIN RESISTANT & DURABLE Indeed, wool rugs in general are naturally stain resistant, as the lanolin in the wool repels liquids. Remember, in the days before polyurethane was used to coat and protect wood floors, rugs were used for their beauty but also for their protective qualities and their durability.

EASY TO CARE FOR Unlike a sisal rug — which is virtually impossible to clean — an oriental rug carries with it some pretty basic care instructions: vacuum regularly and blot up spots quickly and thoroughly. If you get to the spill quickly, you are probably good to go. Moreover, the detailed patterns and rich colors of many oriental rugs act as a natural camouflage to stains, especially that dreaded spray of red wine.

OTHER OPTIONS
• An inexpensive kilim may be the most practical of all because they are flat-weaved and therefore easier to sweep, wash and dry.
• There is no doubt, however, an indoor/outdoor carpet from Dash and Albert are going to win hands down in the ease of use contest. Both can be hosed down in the back yard! It doesn’t get any easier.
