Food for Thought – the Ideal Dining Room Rug

Food for Thought – the Ideal Dining Room Rug

If you have a dining room in your home, you have a whole another room to decorate so that you have a fab dedicated dining space for friends and family. If not, then you can stake out and define your eating area so that it stands out. Whatever your dining style, harnessing the power of some unique home accessories is a must to make sure the dining area doesn’t get lost in amongst the usual household clutter.

One of the best ways to define your dining space is to add a rug and, when you consider that this is where food and drinks are served, you need to make sure that your rug is easy to keep clean. We all know that crumbs, food and even drink will sometimes end up on the floor. This is especially the case if you have children in your home – they are much more likely to drop and spill stuff, especially the younger kids.

We’re going to let you into a little secret – our outdoor rugs can be used inside your home too. The Green Decore team all advise that using an easy clean outdoor rug is a great way to add some style to your dining without risking expensive floor coverings that are difficult to keep clean and that won’t get ruined by spills and food mishaps.

Our fabulous outdoor rugs work really well as indoor rugs too – and they’re especially useful in areas where spills are most likely to take place. They’re water-resistant which means that any liquid (or food) spills can be easily taken care of. Just wipe up the puddle with damp cloth and it will disappear as if by magic.

For more serious spills, or when your dining room rug is looking a little the worse for wear, you can roll it up, take it outside and hose it down. Don’t have an outside area? Stand it in the bath or shower and give it a good shower down. If the lighter areas look as if they need a really good clean, use a brush and a bit of detergent to give the rug a scrub before hosing it down. Once the rug has been washed properly, it dries in next to no time and can be put back down on the floor almost immediately.

If the rug is covered in crumbs after a meal (or even covered in pet hair!), they are light enough to just roll up and take outside where the debris can easily be shaken off. Because the rugs are created with a flat-weave design with no tufts to trap crumbs, everything just falls off immediately, even pet hairs. These really are the best rugs for dining rooms as it’s so simple to keep them clean and looking good at all times. This is a huge bonus in busy households as it frees up so much time that would otherwise be spent cleaning!

These outdoor rugs are made from recycled single-use plastics, which means they’re totally water-resistant, as well as being an eco-friendly option for floor décor. With a variety of colours, designs and sizes to choose from, you’re sure to find just the right rug to enhance the décor theme in your dining area. Check them all out on our website to see which would look best in your home. Then it’s a simple matter of ordering online at the touch of a button.
