When I moved into my first solo apartment, I was excited for more space, more independence, and the ability to have full decision-making power over decor. I had always had to compromise some element of my desired design style when previously living with roommates. I quickly discovered that I liked incorporating color into my space through two decor elements: rugs and art. Or, in this case, a combination of both through the Ruggable rug design options. I’m rolling out my honest Ruggable review—and spoiler alert, it’s a good one.
Before I get into my thoughts on the trendy, washable Ruggable rugs I have a confession to make: I don’t totally live alone. I share my one-bedroom Hoboken apartment with my two long-haired fur children, Bear and Bug. My cats seem to share my passion for home decor. They’re passionate about using the leather couch as a scratching post, claiming my rare vintage chair as a pet bed, and throwing up on the carpet. Because of our shared interior design passion, I have to choose pieces that are not only aesthetically pleasing but are also practical.
In this case, the rug options from Ruggable fit the criteria perfectly. Ruggable has created a solution for mess-prone homes with washable, stain-resistant, water-resistant rug covers.
How does Ruggable work?
When you purchase a rug from Ruggable, you’ll get two pieces: a lightweight rug cover and a non-slip rug pad. The rug cover attaches to the rug pad and can be removed, folded up, and easily thrown in the washer and dryer. Rinse and repeat. The low-pile rugs have a flat yet soft feeling to them which makes them easier to wash and keep clean.
What kind of Ruggable rugs are available?
When I first tried Ruggable a few years ago, the low-pile flatwoven option was the only option. I loved mine for under my dining table (a space that has a higher risk for spills and stains) but wanted something plusher for my living room. I opted for a shag rug from Ikea and did end up throwing it out two years later due to the irreversible volume of dirt and cat hair it collected.
I recently added two new Ruggable rugs to my apartment—one for under my bed and one in the living room. It seems as if Ruggable had read my mind and expanded its product offerings. You are now able to shop a selection of thicker tufted rugs, shag rugs, plush rugs, re-jute rugs, and even faux-hide rugs on the Ruggable site. And yes, they are all still washable.
Ruggable Pros & Cons
If you’ve been thinking about switching to a Ruggable rug, let me make your decision easier by breaking down the pros and cons. Overall, I’d say the pros outweigh the cons but with any big purchase, both sides are important to consider.
- The rugs are washable and have the potential for a longer lifespan if cared for properly
- Almost any design or style on Ruggable’s site is available in multiple shapes, sizes, and textures so you won’t have to compromise.
- Ruggable has both classic and modern rug options and frequently releases new collaborations.
- The rugs can be difficult to lay out. It can take multiple people to lay the rug cover down on the pad correctly. You will have to frequently smooth the rug down to avoid air bubbles or wrinkles.
- Because of the previous point, the frequency at which you remove the pad and wash it may not be as high as you anticipate.
- If you are opting for the flatwoven rug (which is the easiest to wash) you may be sacrificing some level of softness and comfort.
Living Room Rugs
For my living room, I chose a Ruggable tufted rug with a cushioned pad. The tufted style gave the rug the soft cushioned feel that I was looking for in the living room space. The rug is definitely a lot thicker than the flatwoven option and would need a larger washer/dryer set-up to clean it that way. That being said, it is much easier to clean with regular rug cleaner than previous cushioned rugs I’ve owned.
This rug is available in both flatwoven and tufted textures and comes in runner, round, and rectangular shapes. You can also choose between three color palettes.
If colorful or patterned rugs aren’t your thing, there are plenty of natural Ruggable options. This crosshatch rug is perfect and comes in multiple neutral color options.
For my bedroom, I decided on the classic Ruggalbe low-pile flatwoven rug with the standard rug pad. Since a portion of the bed would be under my bed, I thought a flatter option would be better. The rug was easy to lay down and didn’t interfere with the function of the rolling storage drawers under my bed.
One of my favorite things about Ruggable is that the brand frequently collaborates with other designers, artists, and brands. Gray Malin, Barbie, Jonathan Adler, Iris Apfel, and Keith Haring are just a handful of the collaborations currently available to shop.
I was immediately drawn to the rich colors in this Morris & Co. Ruggable design for my bedroom. The rug looks so much more expensive than it actually is.
Add a little color to your room with this ivory multicolor rug. This one is also available in flatwoven or tufted styles.
