A placemat is a small mat underneath a person’s dining plate, used to protect the table from the heat of the plate and food. This thing is usually placed on the dining table. Actually, this item is optional but essential enough to avoid spilling food or drinks on the dining table. Placemats today vary widely in materials. Some are made of cloth, plastic, and even natural materials such as wood and water hyacinth. Although at first placemats were used only functionally, now they can also be used from a decorative point of view, namely to beautify the appearance of the dining table in your kitchen. The choice of design and colour of the placemat can be adjusted to the interior design of your kitchen. For example, if your kitchen has a modern interior design, you could add a placemat with a contemporary feel, but you can also apply an ethnic placemat. With these variations, make your kitchen design transitional.
