Best Area Rugs For The Kitchen

Updated on January 4, 2013

Kitchen Friendly Area Rugs & Cooking Mats

There are basically two different types of area rugs that are used in the kitchen. There are those that are purely decorative like the coffee rug pictured to the left and there are those that are functional, acting like a padded cooking mat first.

Below I've featured a whole host of kitchen style area rugs and padded cooking mats. Most are decorative rugs but for those looking for a cooking mat you may find something you are looking for below as well.

I hope you find something that helps round out your home decor below.

Kitchen Area Rugs That Cushion Your Feet While You Cook

Lots of people that spend ample time in the kitchen swear by the usefulness of the kitchen mat. They cushion the feet while you work and the longer you are in the kitchen the more beneficial these mats are. Below you'll find a number of kitchen mats and larger area rugs that take some of the strain off of standing and look really great too. Hopefully you see something below that you like.

Runner Rugs Can Also Work Well In A Kitchen

If you don't want to buy a standard kitchen rug you can always buy a runner rug and place it along side a counter top. So long as you don't spend too much money and stick with rugs that are easy to clean you should be able to get a nice kitchen rug that minimizes foot fatigue while you are at the counter. Here are a few good runner rugs for the kitchen along with a link to more long area rugs for the home.
