Choosing Handmade Area Rugs For the Kitchen

Kitchen and other room viewable together

People are afraid of putting handmade area rugs in the kitchen due to the chance of spills, but if you are using hand knotted rugs, they clean very easily and last for generations, so you may not want to put the more expensive rugs in the kitchen, but it is definitely ok to place handmade rugs there.

Usually, the kitchen is done by either placing a couple of small rugs like 3’x5’ or 4’x6’ size in front of some main areas like the sink and stove, or if the setup allows, a couple of runners to cover the hallway type areas that are formed because of the island.

The material used in handmade area rugs for the kitchen is of primary importance; although I love silk and wool / silk rugs for areas like the living rooms, library/office, and bedrooms, but it is very important to choose wool rugs for the kitchen areas because of the higher chance of spills and the incredible durability of wool and its ease of cleaning.

If the kitchen area is visible from other main rooms, like the family room or the great room, then it is better to let the larger primary rugs in those rooms to be chosen first and dictate the colors and design direction of the kitchen rugs.
