Rug Ideas For Under The Kitchen Table
If you're like many of us these days, you haven't seen the top of your kitchen table since virtual school started. If that's your current reality, then this post is for you!
Placing a rug under your kitchen table can be a great way to define boundaries for younger ones - whether you're keeping them out or in. Having a dedicated study space can help your kids focus. If you're not in a position to dedicate an entire room to virtual school this year, then the kitchen table might be it! So let's talk about which type of rug is best without breaking the budget. After all, we want to protect your floors, and make cleanup easy when it comes to pencil sharpener shavings, snack droppings, and the occasional spill.
Keep four primary factors in mind when choosing your kitchen table rug:
- The pattern and color design should hide spills, stains, and unidentifiable tracks on your kids' shoes.
- The pile and rug construction should support easy cleaning - both vacuuming and spot cleaning.
- The fibers should be hardy enough to withstand wear and tear.
- The price tag should feel super affordable since this is a rug you don't want to have to worry about.
Rugs that fit this criterion will generally be in the handmade vintage category. Why? Because these are rugs that have already proven their ability to hold up over time. Vintage handmade rugs in our collection are hand-selected for a combination of affordable quality and value. The pile is generally lower and made with 100% wool, which means dirt and graham crackers can easily be retrieved with a vacuum. Any natural fading or discoloration over time has likely already occurred, so what you see is what you get. It's also super easy to find unique designs with rich color patterns. These are one-of-a-kind gems you'll love to see in your kitchen - even if you can't see the kitchen table it's under!
