These days, tablecloths come in a wide variety of materials and styles, so it can be quite tricky deciding which one is right for you and your beautiful kitchen, but if you haven't heard of oilcloth you'll no doubt be interested to learn that it is one of the most practical options out there... and you don't have to compromise on gorgeous pattern design either.

 

This material is becoming increasingly popular for cloths, as it is particularly durable, waterproof and extremely easy to keep clean. All you need to do is wipe it clean if something is spilled on it and there's no need to worry about liquid seeping into the fabric either, so these cloths will likely last a lot longer than their cotton counterparts... perfect if you have young children or you or your other half are a little bit clumsy and accident prone.

 

Oilcloth could also be a great choice if you're really into cooking and making jams or jellies, as this can be a particularly messy pursuit and regular cloths could easily be ruined by the process, so if you're a fan of making your own preserves have a look to see whether there are any styles of oilcloth you especially like.

 

Luckily, this material comes in a huge range of styles these days so you'll be able to easily find one that you love and that goes perfectly with the rest of your interior design ideas. So do a bit of research and see what you can find!
