Your home needs washable kitchen rugs — these are our 5 favorites

Adding a rug or two to your kitchen may not seem like a good move if your household is as prone to spills as most. But a kitchen rug can add color and comfort to your kitchen without adding to your workload. Whether it be a small mat in front of the kitchen sink or a runner between the island and the cabinets, kitchen rugs and mats can enhance the space beautifully. The best part is that there are tons of washable kitchen rugs on the market that are both functional and attractive. Many of them are built to withstand heavy foot traffic, stains, and spills and can then be tossed in the washing machine. Check out some of our favorites below.

Threshold Clarkson Washable Tufted and Hooked Rug

We love that this rug comes in tan and gray – it matches any décor, no matter the style. Available in three different sizes, from accent rug to runner, this rug protects floors from wear and tear and is machine washable to make cleaning easier. Made from durable rug materials that are also stain-resistant, the diamond-etched rug is tufted, and the latex backing is skid-resistant.

Foneyi Machine Washable Door Mat

This washable mat is perfect for the space in front of a kitchen door that leads to a garage or backyard. Available in two different colors and styles and three different sizes, the mat is low-profile so that it won’t catch on opening doors. It’s designed to absorb moisture and scrape off dirt, water, mud, sand, grass, and whatever else your family’s paws and feet can drag inside. The mat has a 100% non-skid rubber backing to prevent moisture from seeping through and sliding.

J Julone Machine Washable Door Mat

This mat has kept our floors cleaner far longer thanks to the extra-absorbent top layer. It’s designed to trap mud and moisture from muddy paws and shoes so the mess doesn’t end up on your floors. Though designed to protect, the mat is still plush and comfortable to walk and stand on and will warm cold feet from cold floors. What’s more, the rug’s backing is non-slip and won’t scratch or damage your floors, and the mat is low-profile so that it won’t catch on doors. We can’t think of anything better.

Brumlow Mills Gustavo Washable Rug

This classic-style rug is available in blue or red, and you can choose from five sizes: runner, octagon, or three different sizes of rectangles. Constructed out of machine-washable nylon for easy maintenance with a quarter-inch pile and latex skid-resistant backing, the antique style of this rug will bring a homey ambiance to your space. No matter the size, we love how easy it is to wash this rug again and again, no matter how many messes it has to face.

ReaLife Machine Washable Eco-Friendly Subtle Geometric Rug

This rug comes in two colors and four different sizes, so you’ll be able to find one that fits both your style and functional needs. The carpets are flat-woven and without pile, and they’re made from sustainably sourced, eco-friendly premium recycled polyester fibers. The rug is stain-resistant and non-slip, but a non-skid pad is recommended for this rug for added safety.

Whether you’re redecorating your whole kitchen, or just sick of wiping up muddy footprints, washable kitchen rugs are one of those things that, once you have them, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without them. There are tons of styles, shapes, colors, and materials available for washable kitchen rugs and mats. Check out our favorites and see how they’ll revolutionize your space.
