- Rug shopping can be difficult, especially because a rug has the potential to change the look of an entire room.
- Finding one that checks off both the affordability and quality box is difficult without actually seeing the product in person.
- We rounded up a list of places to find budget-friendly rugs, including ones you know like Amazon, Wayfair, Target, and some you might not yet, like One Kings Lane and Revival Rugs.
I’m currently wrapped up in the process of furnishing and decorating my apartment, and I’ve come to the conclusion that every home improvement show is a blatant lie. That might seem like a bold statement, but each of these shows portrays the process of revamping your place as a simple task — and simple is the furthest thing from the truth.
Some of the items on my list are easy to come by, while others have been a bit more difficult to find. One of the tougher items to find is a rug, just by nature of how many options are out there. Aside from the obvious factors of price and quality, there’s also a lot of pressure that comes with buying a one because it has the potential to change the feel of an entire living area. Some people use them for utility purposes and others use them strictly for decor, but one thing that’s for sure is that the way it looks can either make or break your space, visually speaking.
In an effort to save others from the grueling process of finding a rug that fits their needs, I created a blueprint of the best stores to find rugs that are both affordable and high quality. Some of the obvious choices were sites like Rugs USA and Overstock, but smaller sites like One Kings Lane and Revival Rugs also made the list.
Of course, everyone’s definition of affordable is different, but all of these sites have options from the low to the high end of possible price ranges.
Check out the list below to find the best stores to find affordable and high-quality rugs.
Amazon is known for its vast amount of tech products, books, and gimmicky goods that you didn’t known you needed (but probably bought anyway because you have a Prime membership with tons of benefits). But the retail giant is also home to a ton of furniture, decor, and basically anything you would need to furnish an entire house.
They have a wide selection of rugs, from $35 steals like this contemporary area rug, to quality pieces with a distressed multicolor look. What’s great about buying home goods from Amazon is that you can rely on the reviews to guide your purchase. Though finding the right rug may require some digging, there are lots of high-quality and extremely affordable options on the site.
If you’re on the lookout for some added floor decor, it won’t be hard to find something you like from the abundance of rugs sold at Overstock. The rug homepage allows you to search through rugs by type, size, color, price, or style depending on your preference — which makes grooming through their stock of over 5,000 rugs a bit more bearable. One highlight from the site is their sale section, which includes durable finds like this highly-rated Moroccan area rug, starting at only $20. To sum it up, if you’re in need of a very specific style while trying to stay within a budget, give this site a try.
You might associate World Market with its international foods and wealth of scented candles, but if you haven’t taken a look at its rug selection, you should add it to your to-do list. The budget-friendly store has an ample selection of indoor and outdoor area rugs that all seem to add unique spin to basic styles. Some of the "always a deal" rugs start at under $15, and others, like this multicolor Persian style one, are a little pricier but loved by many — still coming in at a starting price under $100.
