These 3x5 kitchen rugs are perfect for protecting your floors and giving your feet somewhere soft to stand in the heart of your home. And with so much variety, there's something for every home!
Why A 3x5 Kitchen Rug?
If you ask most interior decorators, they'll tell you that not enough people use rugs in their kitchen. And it makes sense. Kitchens are prone to staining from spills and messes, so homeowners naturally avoid putting them down in fear that they'll stain.
In truth, though, protecting your floor is what these 3x5 kitchen rugs are for! Yes, you'll want to be careful and clean up all spills right away, but you won't regret adding a rug to your space.
The following ideas show you how you might use 3x5 kitchen area rugs in your home:
You can use 3x5 kitchen area mats to protect and pad the most frequented spots around your kitchen. For example, you might place one in front of the sink and one in front of the food prep station.
Decorators use 3x5 kitchen mats as standalone floor coverings in small apartment kitchens. When you only have a small amount of floor space, one of these mats might take up most of what's available, and that's okay!
You can use 3x6 washable kitchen rugs for households that see a lot of messes and traffic. It's convenient to pick up the rug and wash it with your towels, so it always looks tidy in your kitchen.
A Closer Look At 3x5 Kitchen Area Rugs
One of the reasons professional decorators like adding 3x5 kitchen rugs to homes is because they present an easy way to set up the room's background. Rugs and flooring options set the subtle backdrop that brings all the decor in a space together. They add color, personality, and mood.
Whether your home is country, minimalist, or something completely different, you can find several 3x5 kitchen area rugs that will work with your decor.
Yellow is one of the most popular colors in a kitchen because it has a sunny feel and brightens the heart of the home. If you're looking for ideas on what to include in your kitchen, this bright color is an excellent place to begin. For those who already have a luminous kitchen, an earthy color like a deep red might work well too.
Is A 3x5 Kitchen Rug Right For Me?
Measure your kitchen to decide if 3x5 is the size you want to go with. Also, determine if you want just one rug or if you want a pair of rugs.
Aside from using a kitchen rug at high-traffic areas like sinks, you always want 12 inches between the edge of your rug and the wall. At these high-traffic zones, rugs can touch the cabinet base molding instead of having a 12" space, so they protect the flooring completely.
Choosing The Perfect 3x5 Kitchen Rug
Use a color wheel if you're having trouble deciding on a rug, or search by style in the filters. Remember, the most important part is that you love the rug(s) you buy!
