Did you know that striped kitchen rugs have the power to make your kitchen appear larger in your chosen dimension? Check it out!
There’s something special about striped kitchen area rugs, and it’s not just how stylish they are! When you place a striped rug in your kitchen, you’ll create the illusion of more space in whatever direction the lines are running. If the stripes run across the width, your kitchen will look wider, and if they go across the length, it’ll look longer.
If you’re not sure how you want to use your rug, the professionally-inspired applications below might give you some ideas:
A coastal or chic home would look lovely with a blue and white striped kitchen rug. With chunky stripes running across the width, you can use a wide runner to make a narrow kitchen seem more spacious.
A black and white striped kitchen rug is a classic neutral option that’s perfect for a colorful kitchen. The black and white provide lively contrast without competing with other décor for attention. This makes the illusion of size even subtler.
As an opposite to the idea above, a colorful striped rug for kitchen décor is perfect for a space that feels dull or neutral. Whatever colors you love in your décor will shine in a striped rug option, and your space will become instantly more inviting. You’ll find options in blue, gray, green, red and more!
