What is the Best Area Rug for the Kitchen?

In regards to kitchens, there are natural area rugs that are specially made to be able to take the high traffic that one would expect in a kitchen.  Areas that get a lot of foot traffic need a rug that is quite sturdy.  Kitchens in particular need rugs that will retain their pattern and/or color while not fading and that are not made from materials that will wear quickly.  While your first thought is to cheap out and save money on a rug for the kitchen, in the long run you might actually be spending more that way.  There are quite a few advantages to spending a bit more on a natural area rug for the kitchen.  Consider this, the rug in the kitchen will get wet, have food and dishes dropped on it and get folded over.  Buying cheap rugs for the kitchen means that you will need to replace them frequently.  Spending a bit more at the outset for a natural area rugs for the kitchen can actually save you money.

Here are a few tips for choosing an area rug for the kitchen.

  • Figure out where in the kitchen the foot traffic is highest. This will assist you in deciding where the ideal spots for your natural area rugs will be.  Typically, it is a god idea for you to put rugs in front of any entries or doors.  Other good places are under the kitchen table and in front of the sink.  The area where the rugs will go determines the size of the rug.
  • Think about the textures. Kitchens usually look best with rugs that have a flat weave and are made from natural materials such as wool.  These materials are more padded for comfort.  Kitchens typically have hard floors so having a rug with a bit of padding will be optimal not just for comfort but also for resistance to stains.
  • Consider your décor. What color scheme is in your kitchen?  What colors are on the walls, decorations and furniture?  When you are choosing colors, you need to think about options that will complement the color scheme that is already in place.
  • Keep various shapes in mind. Shapes are important.  Consider this, if you have a square table in the kitchen and are considering rugs to put under it, you need to get a square rug to complement the shape of the table.
  • As far as an actual finer goes, seagrass is great for kitchens. Because this fiber grows in saltwater marshes, it is non-porous which makes it incredibly resistant to water.  Originally, seagrass is light green but it fades to khaki.  Rugs made with this type of material are typically bound in leather or cotton so you will not need to worry about them staying where you put them.


How To Install Your Carpet Stair Treads

If you happen to have a beautiful oak staircase but it is beginning to show wear, or maybe it is a bit slippery for your precious toddler, get the traction back with carpet stair treads.  These treads also provide the stairs with a cover for protection without completely covering the gorgeous wood.  The newer types of adhesives will actually dissolve in just a bit of oil when you decide that you are ready to go back to the original stairs or are ready to upgrade to newer treads.  Natural fibers such as sisal or seagrass are beautiful and look amazing on stairs.

Carpet Stair Treads

When you are ready to retread the stairs here are the steps that you need to take.

  1. Scrub your stairs with water and an oil soap that has been made for wood. Use an old toothbrush for removing any dirt that might be between the riser and the tread as well as around the baluster base.  Don’t forget the area that is right underneath the tread lip.  Wipe it all down with a soft cloth and then allow the entire thing to dry.
  2. Measure between the base of the baluster and the wall on a step and then mark the very center.
  3. Find the very center of the tread and then put it on top of the mark you made in the center of the stair. Center it from 1 or 2 inches back from the edge of the front of the tread.  Mark a line along each side of the carpet tread as well as across the edge that is nearest to the front lip of the tread.  Make these lines either with a pencil or with carpenter’s tape.
  4. Lay an adhesive pad or a strip of double sided tape along that front line and between the edges on one of the steps without removing the backing of the mounting. Place the tread directly on the top of the tape and then add tape under the remaining sides of the tread.
  5. Add padding that has been cut to fit inside the dimensions of the carpet tape. Choose a type of padding that is not thicker than the carpet itself as this can serve to lift the actual carpet off of the tape.  Also, use webbing made from latex that has been covered with an adhesive to affix the pad and the carpet tread.
  6. Take the facing off of the tape and then set the tread down carefully on the tape, smoothing out the edges.
  7. Repeat the process with the rest of the stair treads, making sure that they are all spaced the same. Smooth the carpet treads down onto the tape as you go.
