Here’s a thing I’ve never understood about rugs. Although they’re the most used-and-abused decor items in pretty much every home, most aren’t designed to withstand even the most basic wear and tear. Sure, I guess if you live in a house where everyone reliably leaves their shoes at the entryway, you’re probably fine. But if your home has even one rule flouter, or a kid who sneaks red velvet cupcakes out of the kitchen, or a dog with a nail-clipper phobia, you’re pretty much SOL. Meaning, we’re all SOL.

Fortunately, though, there’s a new breed of rugs that not only look gorgeous, but hold up against whatever disasters come along. Finding the perfect one still requires some serious searching, though, so we challenged ourselves to find the best options out there, rugs that are as gorgeous as they are hard-working. And the market didn’t disappoint. Just take a peek at the Hillsby ahead. Over 12,000 nearly five-star reviews rave about how well it handles entryways, kitchens, and any other high-stakes place you could name. Oh, and its price? $40.99. It’s not the only winner either, as the 14 other long-suffering beauties ahead prove.
