If there’s one word we love to hear when it comes to rugs, it’s durable! Sure – It can hardly get better than the perfect vintage rug. However, for living spaces and rooms that see a lot of foot traffic, especially with kids, durability is key. Today on the blog, we’re sharing a roundup of the best durable rugs for families, in a range of neutral hues and patterns. Whether you’re a jute-lover like us or prefer a geometric or floral-inspired pattern, there’s truly something for everyone in our roundup below!
When it comes to durability, we typically look for rugs that are either 100% wool or made from a natural material like jute. Wool is resilient but still soft to the touch, making it perfect for rooms where you want to add a layer of coziness like a family room, or where you want a softer surface on the floor, like a kids room. Jute is one of our go-to’s for high-traffic areas. For maximum durability, look for jute rugs with a tighter weave and clean edges with few or no tassels. Vacuuming once per week should be all you need to keep your jute rug looking brand new.
We also almost always use rug pads with these types of rugs to ensure that they’re extra comfortable. As a bonus, a rug pad can add a little extra cushioning in case of falls, which is especially important with young kids around! We love this 1/8″ option from Pottery Barn or this 1/4″ premium option from Serena & Lily.
