Ruggable Rugs Review

Ruggable rugs are stylish 2-piece rug systems that are light-weight, stain-resistant and also machine-washable – making them ideal for parents and pet owners.

The following Ruggable rugs review will cover key elements of the brand and its products, in order to help you make an informed purchase decision.

Overview of Ruggable 

Ruggable Rugs Review

Ruggable was founded by Jeneva Bell in 2010. She wanted to create a washable and more livable carpet rug and took a variety of approaches before creating and patenting the 2-piece rug system. 

While Ruggables works with certified suppliers in Korea, China, Germany and Mexico, each rug is made-to-order and packaged in Los Angeles or Chicago. 

Ruggable washable rugs are unique to the rug and carpet industry for several reasons:

  • They are comprised of a 2-piece system
  • Ruggable rugs employ cling effect technology
  • They are made using sustainable materials
  • Ruggable covers are machine-washable
  • In 2018, the Ruggable washable rug was the winner of the “Next Big Thing” competition on NBC’s Today Show
  • The company employs a multi-channel marketing approach to selling their rugs

How Ruggable Works 

Using cling effect technology, Ruggable washable rugs employ a patented 2-piece system. The bottom layer is a non-slip pad that grips the floor and acts as anchor for the inter-changeable cover.

The technology keeps the cover securely attached to the pad until you remove it in order to change or wash it. Covers are completely replaceable and come in a wide variety of colors and designs.

Made of 95% recycled polyester, Ruggable covers do not absorb liquid making them both water and stain resistant. They are also hypoallergenic and machine-washable. No Ruggable rugs review would be complete without a thoughtful list of positives and negatives:

  • The Afterpay service has some limitations including it’s only offered to US customers and cart value must be between $35-$1000
  • Customer discounts do not apply on Disney or sale items, swatches or gift cards and can’t be combined with other offers
  • Customers must pay for Ruggable samples
  • Ruggable does not offer exchanges – only returns
  • Ruggable’s free shipping applies to standard shipping only and excludes Hawaii, Alaska and other US territories (other than Washington, DC)

Ruggable Rugs Review: What Do Customers Think? 

Ruggable Rugs Review

Every Ruggable rugs review featured on their website is positive and rated 5 stars.

When scouring the internet for customer opinions on Ruggable washable rugs, I found plenty of good and bad. I have included a sample for the purpose of this Ruggable rugs review.

On Amazon, the average Ruggable rugs review was mixed with a 44% 5-star rating and 31% 1-star (and several in between). The majority of positive reviews came from parents and pet-owners who lauded the rugs for being durable and easy to wash. The complaints were more varied and included:

  • Replacing the cover after washing was not as simple as advertised
  • The rug was not as soft or colorful as advertised
  • Fraying on the edges occurred after washing

One Amazon customer claimed their Ruggable rug arrived dirty and covered in grease stains.

Ruggable rugs were tested and reviewed by 3 HGTV editors who all rated the products favorably.

Popular blog Oak Abode purchased 2 Ruggable rugs online and after 6 months of use, posted their brutally honest review. In it, they detailed some negative thoughts such as: the iffy delivery date, the amount of time required for the rug to air dry after washing and the curling of the rug’s edges. However, in the end, Oak Abode was satisfied with their purchase. 

Ruggable Washing Instructions

Ruggable Rugs Review

Both Ruggable covers and pads are easy to clean. Rug covers are machine-washable. Products sized 2.5’x7’, 2.5’x10’ and 3’x5’ fit into a 2.2 cubic foot washing machine. Products sized 5’x7’, 6’x9’ and 8’x10’ fit into a 3.8 cubic foot washer.

Follow these simple instructions when cleaning a Ruggable washable rug cover:

  • Wash in cold water setting
  • Use a mild and non-bleach detergent – otherwise the rug may stain
  • Once clean, place in dryer on low heat or hang to air dry
  • Do not use fabric softener as this can result in surface-flattening of the rug

Ruggable washable rug pads can be spot-cleaned by hand using these steps:

  1. Remove all solids from the pad’s surface
  2. Soak up excess liquid with cloth or towel
  3. If required, gently wipe pad’s surface with warm soapy water
  4. Rinse
  5. Hang to air dry

For extra precaution, a natural compound like Borax or EC3 is safe to use on the Ruggable washable rug system – without any worry of compromising the rug’s integrity.

When vacuuming, it is recommended you use low-suction settings and avoid heavy beater brushes or similarly abrasive attachments. Ruggable also states to avoid using autonomous robotic vacuuming systems on a Ruggable rug.

These rugs are cheap and cheap-looking, essentially. They are comparable to throwing a piece of printed cloth on the floor with Velcro underneath. They have no pile whatsoever; they are as flat as a pancake. Consequently, there is no tactile sensation associated with walking across a well-made wool carpet that has softness and texture. I bought three of the rugs. I used two of them in bathrooms, which works well since they absorb water and dry out quickly. The third one I tried for my dining area, and the rug simply did not work out in terms of size or aesthetics. So for living rooms and dining rooms, I would not recommend these carpets. They seem to be work better in bathrooms and in kitchens as runners. I might also add that applying the Velcro to these carpets is a very challenging task if you live alone. I struggled: once you start applying the Velcro, it must be aligned perfectly with the carpet or else crimps in the fabric result. You need to apply pressure to the areas on the carpet as you unroll the Velcro to prevent bunching and crimps. At least two people are required for this task. It took me several hours before I could get the right effect – and even then, it was difficult to get the corners of the Velcro tucked underneath the corner pockets of the material. In summary, these carpets are low-end and poor substitutes for “real” carpets that reflect high craftsmanship and pleasing aesthetics.

I agree with trying to set the rug by yourself. I can’t even get the right effect after several hours I just blew off. And yes they are so cheap looking.

Thank you for your honest review! Saved me the nightmare.

Answered by Melissa (2 weeks ago) Reply

I placed an order for my first rug yesterday. I paid with PayPal (thank goodness!!) and then followed up by email to question a minor charge that I believed to be an error.

Today after several emails back and forth with “Kimberly,” I decided to call instead. I spoke with “Abbi” and explained how I was charged incorrectly. She conferred with Kimberly and basically gave me the same canned response. I asked for a supervisor to call me back. I waited an hour with no call back, then sent a reply email to Kimberly requesting my order be cancelled (3:45pm). At 4:27pm, I received a shipping notification email. Surprise, surprise, none of my emails are being responded to now.

I’ve called PayPal, so hopefully they’ll be able to assist. Now I just wait…

I love my ruggables. I had no problem with my putschase. I bought 5. Two small mats. A runner. A 5×7 and 8×10. They have beautiful design. They do not replace my $$$$ Turkish carpet but it’s perfect for our family room, and entrance where the dogs lounge and we hang out all the time. Had to wash The 8 x10 ‘. Thought here is the test. Well it passed with flying colours. No problem in my LG front load. Washed up beautifully. Super soft Dried in 2 turns in the drier. Was way easier to reset on the stick Mat than the first time. I had it perfectly placed within less than 10 minutes. I had zero problems with this company and love the look for the money. Two thumbs up.

I am glad that I have the opportunity to tell my story with Ruggable rugs some where! I bought 4 of them about 2 years ago, not using any of them now. They cut the mats them hold two together but don’t cut them long enough so the rugs curl up when they get continuously walked on.I called at least 3 times, just asking them to send a new longer pad but them wanted to charge me ! they may have attractive patterns but I give them, their customer service and product an “0” rating.

Asked by Jo (10 months ago) Reply

BEWARE!!! This is a company that will expect you to shell out more of your money for their sketchy and questionable business practices. @ruggable They misrepresented a rug purchased weeks ago, just recently arrived, and then expect you to pay for return shipping in order for you to get your money back. DISGUSTING, just a DIGUSTING company to deal with from start to finish. It’s not that I changed my mind because the rug came to our door pristine… it simply was not the product for which I paid. I would go as far as calling a bait and switch for the @cynthiarowley Jamela Jade Rug. It is showcased as a beautiful and classy rug on the site and on IG, but did not arrive to our door as shown. It’s not even for the $214.53 taken out of my account now, but for the canned responses and the lack of accountability… JUST GROSS

I was offered a 25% discount after I brought all of this to their attention. I was not looking for a discount. I wanted a product that was a true representation of what was online. But the rug came discoloured and with less than neatly finished corners. I simply asked for a full refund without any additional costs to me. Simple. But they will not budge. They would rather have this fight and lose unaccountable business because they insist I pay for return shipping. Okay. Send me something that is not accurately showcased on all your social media and expect me to pay more to simply get my money back. Makes sense to me!

Now they have blocked me off their main IG page. Really? Okay…

Not my words but those of a random customer that’s thrilled with this company. Note: this page may compensate ‘happy customers’ to somehow sing the virtues of a company that has none. “The website doesn’t let me review!!!!!!!! All the reviews on the website are clearly fake, there is zero place for me to review / zero email asking. I am returning it, and I am really scared they’re going to charge me for things because the email says “they inspect it heavily”. I am really disappointed in the company :overall return policy, customer service, and bait and switch marketing.”

I would really do my homework with this company. It is all good and well when you’re happy with your purchase, but if you get something for which you didn’t pay, and not in a good way, there is no accountability. If posts are hashtagged with #ruggablepartner you can be sure that such partners are compensated in some way to sing the virtues of a company that has none. But you may have a different experience with them. Good luck!

Uuugggg! Their customer service is the absolute worst. Honestly I have never experienced such a nightmare before. What is truly frustrating is that they advertise as a US west coast based company. So being able to talk to a real person should be easy peasy. Nope! To the point I am convinced the company is a scam.

Answered by Niecy hur (3 weeks ago) Reply

I wouldn’t return. Sell it on eBay or on a local Facebook page.
Thanks for your honest review; I was considering but not now!

Very pretty patterns. Washes well.
Replacing on the pad is a nightmare. No matter how I tried to follow instruction video it was impossible for it to unroll straight On the pad and working out the wrinkles Once placed on the Velcro like pad is a joke. Took me working to exhaustion and never did get it right.

What does reply awaiting moderation mean?

Asked by Mark DePew (7 months ago) Reply

Run they never respond to return requests after multiple follow ups after using the website. The rug was not the color shown in the photos it was a much darker blue that did not fit the room.

Answered by Nancy Emerick (3 months ago) Reply

Same has happened to me. I have been emailing their support for over a week with no response. When I try to return/exchange on their website it does not work. I have a rug I do not want and no way to return it. Their site now says they will exchange also. But, as I said, it does not work.

Asked by Capri (5 months ago) Reply

Unfortunately, these rugs are not USA sourced and made. This absolutely matters!!! How do you think we make money to spend money if not in the USA by the USA? I am always amazed that some persons think that no one in the USA needs an income.

Asked by Lesley (5 months ago) Reply

An absolute nightmare to get laid flat on the velcro pad. The pad is wrinkled and no matter what my husband and I do to our 8×10 rug, it sounds like we are walking on bubble wrap. The carpets are also extremely thin and have no padding. Unbelievable I cannot leave a review on their site.

Asked by Ashley (5 months ago) Reply

I received two rugs and an extra pad that I ordered thinking I needed to order a pad separately. When I realized this was not intended to be used on carpeting, (I had them for two days) I emailed Jazmine at ruggables and she advised me to return them. I agreed to pay shipping fees, and my husband packaged and shipped them back on the 24th of November. This is now December 15th, I’ve sent them three emails requesting a response — NOTHING! If they don’t agree that they are clean for some reason, (two were still in the original packaging) then they should offer to return them to me. This is pathetic, terrible customer service and I will continue to complain and write further reviews until I receive a RESPONSE from them. This is not how American companies do business, DON”T buy these, you’ll be sorry.

Asked by Liz (5 months ago) Reply

I really wish I had seen this site before buying one. The rave reviews on the ruggable site are really misleading. Terrible product.

Asked by Becky Stauffer (4 months ago) Reply

Just a question as to how to stop my runner from walking. I have turned the other way and now walks in that direction. Any ideas? I like the rug but do not like putting it back into place multiple times a day.

They are difficult to deal with. Overcharged me and now won’t respond, even to BBB complaint. Suggest you avoid them.

Thank You Community
Asked by Boyzinda (3 months ago) Reply

I ordered an 8×10 Ruggable rug as I read the glowing comments on their website. Then, I landed on a real review page and quickly cancelled my order! Thank you all for your honest reviews and for saving peeps like me the nightmare. I’ll stick with Joanna Gaines and NuLoom.

Answered by Tom (3 months ago) Reply

Such a great look and idea…for the money though ( not cheap, compared to a traditional area rug) it sounds the they fell way short on delivering a solid product….that is to bad..as a pet owner with animals that love a new scatter rug or hallway runner this seemed like a perfect solution…i guess i saved some money and aggravation. Thank you. .

Still waiting for my third rug. HORRIBLE business practices.
Asked by Bernie Nelson (3 months ago) Reply

I purchased several of these rugs and the last ones I received which were 2.5 x 10 I ordered three only got one. Emailed them three times. They were supposed to do a call back. They make themselves unavailable. HORRIBLE customer service. I am ready to go to the Better Business Bureau about the business practices. You have to kiss there butt to get anywhere. Who wants a company that you can’t talk to.They won’t be in business long doing that. SAD.

Not at all like the photos on the website!
Asked by Adele (1 month ago) Reply

All the rug photos on the website show very even edges all around the rug when it is placed on the grip pad. The video shows almost perfect lineup of rug with grip pad. There is no gap visible where the grip pad ends. In real life my rug is at least 1-1/2 inches longer on both ends than the grip pad. It looks cheap and cheesy….like the pad was cut too short for the rug. And in reality it is too short for the rug. The pattern is nice, Yellow Chrysanthemum 3×5 but not as bright as pictured. Overall, for $109 it looks like I purchased it at Dollar General. I will keep it as I don’t want the hassle of returning it and I like the washable feature as I have it in my kitchen. I had been considering ordering other rugs for bathroom and living room but have definitely changed my mind after receiving this one. Not happy with it.
