The 20 Best Mudroom Rugs

Mudrooms can be both a blessing and a curse in that they welcome you, kids, and animals into the house, but these rooms also tend to see a lot of traffic and dirt. Plus, some mudrooms are used to do laundry, which many people don’t enjoy. Even so, you can find happiness in mudrooms by making the room as practical as possible in all areas, including the rug. Aside from their practicality, rugs can dramatically impact the tone of the room and create a space where you’ll actually want to spend time while still being durable and comfortable. Perhaps that’s hard to believe, but we’ve compiled some of our best mudroom rugs for you to see all the potential they hold.

“As an owner of a vintage vinyl runner (my first one purchased six years ago) I knew what to expect and I wasn’t disappointed when my runner (3’ x 9’7”) arrived. It is beautiful and very well made-no slipping on my hallway wood floor. I definitely expect it to “hold up” as much as my first one has-which still looks like it did when purchased. Also, it was delivered in a timely manner-and was well packaged!Definitely recommend!” -Carol T.
