Factors to consider when you display your kitchen rug

There   are many factors that you need to consider when you are looking to use a   kitchen rug to enhance the look in this important room. The right rug will   give a certain undeniable and irresistible flair and bring positive attention   from all of your guests.

The first thing that you need to consider when you add a new rug   to your kitchen décor is that the color of the rug compliments the décor that   you have already added.

1 Color:

When you consider the color for your kitchen rug look at the   color, of all of your appliances, the color of the floor, the color or the   wall paint or paper, and even the color and texture of any paintings or wall   decoration that you are using. If you work it right you may even be able to   match the rug to several different colored pieces or items of   décor.

If you are using bland or earth tone colors in your kitchen a   brightly colored rug may add a positive splash and really stand out.   Geometric patterns will also work well here but you need to be cognizant of   the pattern and texture of your flooring. You certainly would not use a rug   with round patterns if you have rectangular tile.

  1. Size:

I should remind you that size and shape need to be considered at   the same time when you consider the kitchen rug. A round rug would not fit in   with a long rectangular kitchen space. A long rectangular rug by the same   token does no good in a large round or rectangular kitchen. If your kitchen   is large use a large rug. If it is small use a small one.

You can also use the shape of the kitchen rug to highlight one   particular appliance or feature that you want to highlight. A long rug can be   used to draw the attention of the viewer to a certain appliance or piece of   furniture.

  1. Location:

You want to display your kitchen rug in the right location in   order to get maximum effect or benefit. Naturally the rug serves a purpose   and you want it in a trafficked area. You may want to use it to protect your   floor rather than for looks. In that case you place it where it will guard   against floor spills and stains, but it you are using your rug to accent the kitchen   décor place it where your visitors will appreciate it most.
