Brighten Up Your Culinary Corner with Kitchen Mats

Let's face it: with a highly-functional space like the kitchen, design can often get overlooked in favor of appliances, workable counter tops and storage solutions. If you feel your kitchen space needs an uplift but you don't want to go through the trouble of painting and decorating to a high degree, consider placing a couple of kitchen mats in the area for a great design addition that won't break the bank. West elm offers a vast array of kitchen mats that are sure to blend in - or stand out - in your culinary haven. Read on to see what we have in store for you.

Why Get a Kitchen Mat?

A high-traffic area like the kitchen is a great place for a sturdy, yet stylish mat to protect your floors, whether they are stone, tile, or hardwood. Not only will it add some personality to the space, it can help support your feet and back when standing at the counter or sink for long periods of time. Some of our styles are even water-resistant to protect against accidental spills.

What Kinds of Kitchen Mats are Available?

Our selection of mats for the kitchen range from bright to basic, plain to patterned. These versatile mats are made with durable materials such as vinyl, polyester, polypropylene and easy-to-clean PVC - perfect for an area with lots of foot traffic and one that is prone to spills and collective debris. Our mats also come crafted with a latex backing that provides a sturdy, non-slip experience. Here's just a sneak peek of what we have to offer:

  • Patterned. Stripes, zigzags, bold color contrasts, textured geometrics and distressed mosaics make up the majority of our patterned kitchen mats that will add a touch of flair to an otherwise simplistic decor. If your kitchen already boasts a decorative design, pick out a color in the mat that will complement your walls for a more textured look.
  • Plain. Choose from a basic light or dark gray shag mat to a contemporary navy and orange simple striped beauty that will look stunning by the sink or entranceway. These versatile styles also work well slipped under a kitchen nook dining set. Or, try one in a covered outdoor space, such as a deck with an overhang - perfect for wiping feet on before you go back inside.

If your kitchen area looks like it could get a bit of brightening up, consider a kitchen mat or two from west elm. We've also got tons of great furnishings and decor for the rest of your home, from lighting for your living area to headboards and bed frames for the master bedroom.
