The best of both worlds; 4 things you need to know about Washable Rugs

Rugs are a huge part of what brings a living space together, often providing a centrepiece for a room, and if you fall in love with a rug, you’ll want it to last. Not only this, but you want to ensure that it’s as clean and hygienic as possible, all year round. For many of us, taking our rugs for a professional clean is not always a practical or affordable option. Welcome to the world of washables! 

Here at Flair, we believe that functionality doesn’t have to mean sacrificing style and that’s why we’ve developed a range of rugs that offer both. Here are some benefits of choosing a washable rug:


However many rugs you have in your home, having to clean each one either by hand or via a professional cleaning company can seem like just another time-consuming task on your to-do list. Depending on their size and weight, washable rugs can be easily cleaned in either your home washing machine, or in a larger washing machine found in launderettes. Either way, these rugs offer value in every wash and mean you can enjoy the convenience of a clean and stylish rug in every room without worrying about extra costs. Washable rugs could also be considered more sustainable because of their durability – even more reason to buy a design you love rather than choosing a rug or mat for utility alone.

 2. Hygiene

Many households have become more conscious of hygiene and cleanliness than they were before the pandemic and washable rugs give you a deeper clean that just vacuuming alone. We’re also spending more time in our homes than before. They have increasingly become spaces not just to rest and retreat, but to work, so they are prone to more wear and tear, especially for busy families. Washable rugs help to keep your home environment cleaner, without compromising on style or quality. 

 3.Great for pets 

Pets make every home so special, but there’s no denying that they can make a mess or bring in a mess! From muddy paw prints to shedding hairs, a home with pets can be harder to keep clean and tidy, so wooden floors and washable rugs can often be a better, more hygienic option than a fitted carpet, helping you to keep your home clean and smelling fresh, no matter what mischief your beloved pets get up to!

4. Versatility 

With our collection of washable rugs, there are no limits as to where you can place them in your home, because we have a variety of designs and sizes to cater to your own style. Washables work in a wide variety of places, including high traffic areas such as kitchens, hallways and even bathrooms, along with other busy spaces such as living rooms and kids’ bedrooms, where messes or spills can be a common occurrence.  

Our Match collection is incredibly versatile, allowing you to switch up your style and make cleaning easy-breezy, with light, machine washable covers placed over a slip resistant base layer. The perfect match for busy homes where life happens! 

Or, for practical style on the move, check out our unique Fold collection of fold-and-go rugs, packed in their own tote bags for easy transportation and storage so they stay looking beautiful wherever you might take them!
