One of the most common places to find an area rug inside the home is in the kitchen or dining area. Whether that rug is under the dining table, next to the kitchen sink, or at the door that leads outside, there’s little doubt that it sees a good deal of action. Spills, splashes, and dirty shoes add up quickly to create a dingy rug that looks like it always needs a wash.
Smaller area rugs purchased in a big box store don’t usually wash well and tend to fall apart after just a few times in the washing machine. Larger area rugs require spot cleaning or the rental of a steam cleaner. To get the job done most effectively, homeowners find that hiring a professional carpet cleaner is sometimes necessary.
A smart solution for this common dilemma is to replace indoor area rugs with Outdoor Rugs. Outdoor rugs, while initially intended to help dress up outdoor spaces, have enormous potential as indoor rugs, too. Today’s outdoor rugs have beautiful designs that complement just about every indoor decor, and, because they can be used outdoors, they are waterproof, incredibly rugged, and easy to clean. Spills and dirt wipe away with a damp cloth, and particularly dirty rugs can be taken outside, squirted with a hose, and left to air dry.
