Kitchen Rug Runner
A Kitchen Rug Runner Keeps You Safe in the Kitchen
Why would you want a kitchen rug runner? For a couple different reasons:
- Protect your floor from spills that may be hard to remove later (dried egg yolk for example).
- Keep your toes warm in the early morning or late at night.
- Help prevent falls on wet floors.
- Help beautify the kitchen with bright colors or designs.
Kitchen rug runners make a lot of sense for your kitchen. I like shaggy rugs with latex on the backings. They keep my toes the warmest in the early morning when I'm standing in front of my sink. The practical part of me favors braided rug runners because they're reversible for twice the wear.
My mother-in-law keeps a cream carpet in her kitchen. Enough said about that, huh? And she wants me to visit with my young children. Well, she actually uses area rugs placed strategically in front of her stove and in front of her sink island as well. And every 2-3 years when she redecorates her kitchen theme, she replaces the kitchen rugs in there, too. While this may not reflect the rest of us, we can use the same idea. Area rug runners are so reasonably priced because of their size that you could replace them easily when you decide to replace your black checks for an animal motif.
A couple of affordable kitchen area rug runners also lets you dabble in more expensive rug collections because you're getting a little taste of luxury for a smaller price because of the smaller rug size. Unless your kitchen is the size of Texas and then I suppose the costs of your kitchen area rugs are probably the least of your worries!
