Consider a good quality small rug (one that will handle the high amount of foot traffic) near places such as the kitchen sink. Not only will this give the space a decorative look but it will also lend some comfort while working and standing.
Smaller size rugs including 2 x 3 and 2 x 4 rugs are recommended here.
If you have a center island or a narrow kitchen, runners are a perfect choice.
It is best to place a runner that is close in size to the length of your island.
Runners come in many sizes with 8 feet and 10 feet being standard.
A runner rug can make a kitchen look bigger and it's a great way to add to the space.
2'.6" x 8' and 2'.6" x 10' runner rugs are recommended
Always put a non slip rug pad under your smaller area rugs to prevent your rug from sliding.
