Kid-Proof Rugs for Every Room in the House

Ruggable Maral Heriz Creme Rug

Yes, we are starting off a list of kid-proof rugs with a cream-colored fabric rug—and here's why. Ruggable rugs are machine washable, even the giant area rugs that typically couldn't fit in a standard household washing machine. Because Ruggable rugs come in a two part system—mat and rug pad—the top decorative layer is lightweight and can be easily removed to go right in the washer. So go ahead, put this in your living room, your kitchen, or even under the dining room table. (from $109; ruggable.com)
