Question:

does anyone know the difference between bathroom rugs to kitchen rugs?

anyone know the difference between the two? any info would be great thanks!

Answer:

Bath rugs usually have a non-skid coating on the back so they don't slip when they are wet. They can be made of anything...I've had fuzzjy synthetic ones, looped cotton ones, a whole array of materials, but if they were designed for use in the bathroom, they had a non-skid backing on them. Kitchen rugs are often reversible. My favourite are the rag rugs, tightly woven colourful cotton rugs made from twisted rags, often in colour schemes (in my pair, the dominant colour is blue). They are durable, colourful, absorbent, easily washed in the machine, and release soil much better than nappy rugs. And they are dirt cheap...I have a pair in my kitchen that have been in use for more than 10 years and I paid less than $5 each for them in a place like WalMart or a dollar store. They are just now starting to fray a bit!

Bathroom rugs are usually softer and fluffier for barefeet. Kitchen rugs can be purely decorative or add comfort when standing at a work area in the kitchen such as the sink.

Bathroom rugs are fuzzy and a lot of them have that rubber looking stuff on the back of them. Kitchen rugs usually have pictures of fruit and kitchen items on them and are not fuzzy looking.

There is no difference. Sometimes bathroom rugs are shaped to fit around the base of a toilet, but most area rugs will work in both.

Non slip rugs on any that are not carpeted..is the main thing, and fairly interchangeable with the many designs they have.
