The kitchen is a place of baking, chopping, frying, mixing, pouring, eating and drinking. In other words, the kitchen is a place of mess; spillages, crumbs, grease and grime. Keeping the kitchen tidy and clean is difficult to do, even more so if you have children or animals. So, is it the best idea to cover up that easy clean wooden or tiled floor with a rug?
Comfort. You spend a lot of time standing in your kitchen, and a cosy rug will definitely be more comfortable on the old feet.
Secondly, the Cons...
The Slip Factor. Rugs put on top of a hard floor are more likely to slip around, which is a huge hazard if you’re carrying a pan of boiling water, or even worse a bottle of wine! Although you can buy an anti-slip underlay to stop this from happening, at an extra cost of course!
