Anyone with pets, kids, or clumsy adults at home should definitely consider washable rugs for high-traffic areas and potential spill zones. Even people living without the constant threat of spilled juice or muddy paws may want to consider them — they’re especially resistant to stains, easy to spot-clean, and can be tossed in the washing machine. Boutique Rugs has an ever-growing section of their site devoted entirely to rugs of the washable variety, where great new designs seem to pop up daily. Right now, you can save 60 percent on select styles with code EARTH60, which brings prices down to under $100 for lots of these low-maintenance rugs. Here’s a look at some of our favorites from the sale, all of which can stand up to just about anything.

With an antiqued pattern of faded oranges and blues, the Rosman Area Rug is a great choice if you're going for a slightly more formal look but want a rug that can still stand up to everyday wear and tear. Pro tip: A busy pattern like this will help to camouflage (or at least distract from) some stains.

With pretty pastel tones, this rug could instantly brighten up a room. It would look great as the star of an otherwise neutral space or could work really well in an eclectic boho room. Like most washable rugs, it's made with poly fibers, but this one has a chenille finish for extra softness.

Add some visual texture to a room with the Nalcrest Area Rug, which has a neutral design that could work with any color palette. This pick would look great in an entryway that gets lots of traffic, and since it's easy to spot-clean or toss in the wash, you'll save on cleaning costs over time.

The Kullar Area Rug's bright and bold design gives it some visual depth, but it's still low pile and low maintenance. It's a great all-season rug, but its tones of olive and burnt orange make it especially nice if you're looking for a piece to put into play for summer and fall.

With an intricate pattern inspired by traditional Turkish designs, this rug is another great choice for a more formal setting. As the dad of two pups, my first thought was that this beauty would be especially great at camouflaging the red clay pawprints that mysteriously appear throughout my place.

Speaking of pets, if there's one piece of advice I'd give to new pet owners, it would be to buy only washable (and affordable) rugs! Chewing, scratching, and accidents are just an inevitable part of puppyhood and kittenhood, so a versatile, easy-to-clean rug like this one just makes sense.

The Colac Area Rug is one of our favorite 100 percent cotton rugs in Boutique Rugs' washable section. It has a chic neutral pattern, and there's also a navy blue version available.

Traditional but washable, the Kalbugan Area Rug offers easy care and a fancy look. Its low pile means it won't be as plush as a traditional rug, of course, but a thick rug pad can make it feel extra nice underfoot and will prevent it from sliding around.

This gorgeous rug would look great in a globally inspired, eclectic space, or it could be a really sweet choice for a nursery or kid's room. While it has a super-intricate pattern, the subtle coloring makes everything feel bright and airy.

The Gangyangan Area Rug is made from a blend of chenille poly fibers and cotton, so it has an extra-soft feel. Its neutral color palette and floral design would work really well in a space with earthy tones.
