Aqua is a beautiful color to add life and vibrancy to any modern or traditional kitchen, and an aqua kitchen rug offers a simple way to do it. Rugs are easy to install and swap out, much easier than painting the walls or cabinets, and they can protect your floors from daily use. The extra layer of padding can also ease the stress on your joints that’s created by standing for extended periods while cooking or cleaning.

Choosing an Aqua Kitchen Rug
Picking the right aqua kitchen rug for your home can feel overwhelming with so many choices and designs.

All you need to do is spend a few minutes examining your space and considering what type of rug you’d like.
Below, we’ve highlighted some of our favorite tips to guide you through the process so that you can pick the best aqua kitchen area rug for your home. Keep reading to learn more:
Color and Pattern
Look at the colors in your kitchen and note the general palette, including the hue or shade of each color, and consider what would look best here. All aqua blue kitchen rugs are not the same, especially when you consider the addition of accent colors. There are big differences between aqua and brown, gray, red, yellow, blue, gold, and ivory kitchen rugs, and you want a combo that matches your kitchen.
The pattern on your rug can help it stand out, creating character and visual interest. Pick a pattern that works well with your interior decor style. For example, aqua plaid kitchen rugs could work well in a contemporary or country chic space.
Measure your kitchen floor to get an idea of the right size for your rug. If you have a large open floor, you might want something like an 8’ round aqua kitchen rug. On the other hand, if your kitchen is narrow or has a center island, aqua rug runners might work better.
Ideally, you want to keep some space between the edges of your rug and the walls, but this isn’t always the case for rugs that sit next to counters where you prep food. To be sure your new rug will be the perfect fit, give our room visualizer tool a try.
A rug pad can add years to the life of your aqua kitchen rug. Rug pads mitigate sliding and friction damage caused to the backing and pile of your rug. They also add a layer of padding and insulation to the floor. We recommend that you add a pad to your cart unless the listing specifies that your rug does not need one.
