Persian Rugs in the Kitchen

Putting a mat in the kitchen by the sink is pretty common, but in the last few years Persian and Oriental rugs have been replacing those generic mats in the kitchen. Every one has a different opinion on whether or not you should have an antique or vintage hand knotted rug in your kitchen. A Persian rug will look great almost anywhere you place it, but here are a few tips for those who dare to decorate the floors in their kitchen with Oriental rugs.

1. Choose wise colors: Don't go with white, or light color schemes if you get too messy in the kitchen. Although the rug may look stunning, you don't want to cook pasta one night and have the red sauce spilled all over your beautiful new rug. The majority of Oriental rugs are forgiving, so if you do spill something on it, quickly follow guidelines to remove the stain or take it to a professional cleaner.

2. Choose an appropriate design: An Oriental rug with an open field may not be the best choice for a kitchen floor. Many Persian rugs have elaborate designs with all-over patterns or intricate medallions. By choosing a rug with a full design any stains on the carpet should be masked by the pattern.

3. Choose a rug with good pile-height: Half the reason most people have for having a mat or rug in the kitchen is to have something comfortable to stand on while cooking or doing dishes versus a hard floor. If this is your reason, make sure you find a good rug pad and/or a rug with thick pile and a lot of life left for support.
