Of course, the kitchen floor mat is among the different elements that make up a kitchen. Sometimes neglected, the latter is nevertheless very useful in everyday life. As a chef passionate about cooking, I will reveal to you here everything you need to know about kitchen mats before buying. Of course, as always, I will present a selection of the best references on the market.
And if not, here is all I can tell you on the subject:
A kitchen rug, what is it and what is it for?
As you probably know, this is a rug that is placed on the floor of your kitchen. Generally, the latter is positioned near the sink, the hob, or the worktop. Its role is mainly to protect the floor from splashing water, various splashes, dirt, scratches, etc. It is ideal for keeping the floor in good condition and avoiding inadvertent damage. It also provides anti-slip features to prevent you from slipping. But also anti-fatigue. Indeed, some models have a rebound (or a foamed part) which will relieve your legs and feet if you stand for a long time in your kitchen. A most appreciable comfort!
Also, we must not forget that the kitchen floor mat also remains a significant decorative element. With the many references, it is easy to create a colour or style association that perfectly matches your kitchen’s decoration. As you will have understood, the kitchen mat is the ideal tool to keep your floor clean and dry and avoid slipping in your kitchen. But also bring you comfort in a static position and decorate the decoration of your lovely kitchen.
How to choose the best kitchen rug?
Before jumping on the first kitchen rug, however, it is worth paying attention to some details here:
The first criterion for choosing your carpet will be the materials used for its design. Often this carpet can be made of textile, rubber or even PVC. Depending on the materials chosen, your carpet can meet all the requirements that matter to you. The carpet must be able to combine hydrophobic and anti-slip functions.
Obviously, you will have to choose a carpet with adequate dimensions for your kitchen. Nothing could be simpler; you will need to measure the place where the carpet will be placed and compare it with its dimensions. Do not hesitate to take a carpet with sufficient dimensions to protect a large part of the floor.
Also, remember that a Washable Floor kitchen rug should be easy to maintain. Ideally, the latter should be machine washable, making your job much easier. Check this indication on the product label or its product description.
For a good kitchen rug, you often have to count from 20 to 50 €. You can find them in supermarkets, in decoration and DIY stores and online. It is often on the Internet that we find kitchen mats at the best price but also the most comprehensive choice.
