You and especially the lady of the house spend a lot of time in the kitchen, which if you don’t have a carpet, it is considered a dry and numb environment that makes you feel bad. The softness and warmth that the carpet can convey to you is a very pleasant feeling.
In the previous section, we realized that carpeting the kitchen is necessary and important, but maybe for those of you who are planning to buy a hand-woven kitchen carpet, there is a doubt as to whether this is correct or if it is better to choose a machine-made carpet.
The issue here is that it is definitely better to choose a hand-woven carpet for the kitchen, but it is more reasonable to buy a machine-made carpet for the kitchen. Better is different from reasonable.
If you take a brief look at the items we mentioned in the previous section for carpeting the kitchen, you will realize that; In all cases, hand-woven carpet is a better option than machine-made carpet for the kitchen; Because it is more beautiful, it is warmer and softer, and because of the longer piles, it can absorb more noise, and walking on it gives you a much better feeling, but here is a but:
Handmade carpets have a higher price than machine-made carpets, and since kitchens are busy places that cause carpets to get damaged in a shorter period of time, so if you are in financial trouble, my advice is to Use machine-made carpets for your hallway, but if you don’t have a problem in terms of spending money, hand-woven kitchen carpets are definitely the best option to buy.
Many experts believe that the kitchen is the heart of the house, the reason for this is the high use of this part of the house, which not only the lady of the house, but also all the family members are connected with.
In order to be able to buy a suitable and new hand-woven kitchen carpet, you must consider certain points and features that we will explain to you in the following. Bedroom carpets are different.
In order to choose the right dimensions for you, it is necessary to measure the exact size of your kitchen by meters before buying a handwoven carpet and choose one of the following dimensions for purchase:
Standard dimensions of hand-woven carpets: hand-woven carpets are woven in the dimensions of 2×3, 2.5×3.5, 3×4 and 6×4 meters. Carpets are divided into four categories: 1- Small carpets that are 2 x 3 and 2.3 x 3.5 meters in size. 2- Medium carpets that are 3×4 and 2.8×2.8 meters in size. 3- Large carpets that are 3.5*4.5 and 3.7*4.8 in size. 4- Very large carpets whose dimensions are 4×5 and 4×6 meters and above.
But consider some important points about the dimensions of the handmade kitchen carpet:
It is better to choose the dimensions of the carpet so that it is 25 to 30 cm away from the edge of the cabinets.
If you have a dining table in the kitchen, it is better to get a carpet of suitable size for under this table that completely covers the table and chairs, otherwise you will face a problem when serving food.
Next to the main carpet you buy, spread a small carpet in front of the dishwasher cabinet.
If the decoration of your apartment is modern and new, you can use circular and rhombus handwoven carpets to buy, but if your apartment is classic, the best option is to buy rectangular carpets.
The dimensions of the carpet should not be too large, because it increases its weight and is not suitable for the kitchen in any way.
The next thing that you should pay attention to when choosing a handmade kitchen rug is its fiber material. The fibers of handmade carpets are of 4 main types; Cotton, wool, fluff and silk.
Using silk carpet is not reasonable at all because of the very high cost. Cotton carpets are not suitable for purchase because of their low resistance, and the best option is definitely to use woolen handwoven carpets. Carpets whose piles and wefts are made of wool and whose webs are made of cotton are the best options for you to buy.
The point that you need to pay attention to here is that the handmade kitchen rug should not have long piles so that you don’t face problems when cleaning it. Because, basically, kitchen rugs get dirty quickly due to food spills, and carpets with long piles are heavier and harder to sweep.
Among the hand-woven carpets, the Sane hand-woven carpet and the nomadic hand-woven carpet can be introduced as the best options to buy. Try to choose a higher index for your carpet so that the density of the texture is higher to prevent food from entering the piles.
The use of hand-woven rugs is also one of the most attractive and widely used options due to the lack of lint, which, in addition to being original and beautiful, is very comfortable to use in the hallway.
Note: It is necessary to pay attention to the fact that hand-woven carpets are heavier than machine-made carpets, and washing them may cause problems for a while. let them slip and be relieved in this sense.
When buying a hand-woven kitchen carpet in terms of color, you should pay attention to two important points;
The first point is that the colors used in dyeing the handmade kitchen carpet should be natural, because it is correct to use artificial colors in the dyeing of the carpet, which causes its price to decrease a little, but the durability of the colors is reduced.
The second point is the choice of color; You can use two types of colors for the corridor carpet: light and dark. The advantage of using bright colors is that it makes your kitchen space appear larger. But the main problem of this coloring is that they get dirty quickly. Our recommendation is to use hand-woven carpets with navy and lacquer colors that are not too dark and do not get dirty easily.
In terms of choosing the type of carpet design, you can choose the right design for your home depending on the decoration of your home. But don’t forget that if your decoration is modern and new, buying classic designs with lots of flowers and bushes is not a good option for you and it is better to buy modern handmade carpets.
