15 Machine-Washable (Yes Washable!) Area Rugs

Earlier this week, I wrote about real rugs in the bathroom and how much I love the look. While many readers were totally onboard, others were seriously concerned with cleanliness, moisture and beyond. Look, I totally get it. I don’t agree with putting priceless Persian rugs at the foot of your tub; I’m not about aesthetics for the sake of aesthetics. But there’s another way. Let me introduce you to the machine-washable area rug.

The Decorative Trick That Transformed How I Feel About My Bathroom

For the longest time, I thought there was only one solution for rugs in the bathroom: the traditional bath mat. I always struggled to find something I liked enough. Everything was either too fuzzy and nubby, or too bland in terms of design, as I like to add a punch of color via rugs in my all-beige bathroom to liven things up. That is, until I refreshed my space this past summer and went in a completely different direction.

A good area rug can be a total game changer for your home. Not only can they instantly warm up a bare (or chilly) room, they’re a great way to experiment with texture and pattern throughout your place.

So we dug through Amazon (why not buy a rug while you’re restocking on facewash or batteries, right?) and plucked out this solid selection of beautiful rugs, all less than $100—and around 8×10.

Can You Wash a Rug at the Car Wash? We Find Out

(Image credit: Ashley Poskin )

When my friend Emily and I first met, I knew we were meant to be BFF’s after hearing all her wonderful tales of growing up in a big old victorian home. I was just 18, but already desperately in love with great big old houses, so of course I gravitated toward people who lived in them. One tale in particular she told, was the story of how each year her entire family would load up all the carpets in the house and take them to the carwash to be cleaned.

How to Skillfully Combine Multiple Rugs in a Room — Decor Match Maker

(Image credit: Emily Henderson )

An open floor plan can have great appeal — fewer walls generally create a better flow and allows for natural light to shine throughout. But since the eye is taking in a lot of space at once, you have to be a little more careful about your furnishings, especially rugs. Next to wall color, floorings are the most dominant visual in a space simply because of the size. When you’re talking an 8′ x 10′ Beni Ourain or a 9′ x 12′ graphic flatweave, that’s a lot of ground cover (and its not always as effortless as Emily Henderson made it look in the boho-chic space above).

When you have more than one seating area in a space—dining area, living area, etc.—you’re going to need multiple rugs to get the job done. I reached out to designer Donna Mondi of Donna Mondi Interior Design for a crash course on how to combine rugs.

8 of the Best Etsy Shops For Antique & Vintage Rugs

It’s amazing just how much a new rug could transform a room — you don’t need to trouble yourself spending hours repainting the walls or splurging on new furniture piece when just a new floor accent will do the trick just as well. But rather than going to your local big box store and getting something possibly 10,000 other people in your zip code already have themselves, why not get a vintage rug instead? From boho accents and vintage Turkish kilims to hallway runners with electric colors, Etsy has a plethora of different styles to choose from. Ahead are some of the best Etsy rug stores to shop from.
