Favorite Sources for Affordable Rugs

January 15, 2014

I’m bringing more touches of navy blue into our home this year so last month I purchased this Suzani rug for the entry and to update our family room a few days I ago I ordered this navy geometric indoor/outdoor rug. (You can see most of the rugs in our home in this tour from last year and I’ve purchased from the top ten sources listed below).

Plush versions in wool or silk are wonderful but with kids and pets, I need a rug that is both stylish and easy to clean, also one I won’t cry over if it ever gets soiled or ruined so I’m a huge fan of modern indoor/outdoor rugs for their comparative low cost and practicality.

I thought it time to do a follow up to this post from 2012 on my favorite sources for affordable rugs. Here they are!

    FLOR now sells pre-packaged sets of carpet tiles to create area rugs of various sizes.
    Lowes for Indoor/Outdoor Rugs.

  2. Heidi says:

    Definitely saving this list! I’ll need a rug for both my dining room and living room once we get through this kitchen remodel.

  3. DJ says:

    We recently acquired a large cotton Dash and Albert rug from Craigslist. (score!) Would you mind sharing how you clean this type of large rug?

  4. Celina says:

    My living area rug is not even one year old and it’s already ruining, especially in the spots that get the most traffic. How do you clean your rugs? I typically just pass a vacuum, but I’m thinking if I clean the rug, it’ll come back to life. I have been bummed about this for a while, since I did spend far too much on the rug.
    Thanks for the sources for possible future purchases. I’ll be looking for a rug for our patio soon.

    This is a great article! I’m always looking for an awesome rug to spruce up my apartment. I found a great deal on a rug from Joss and Main earlier this year. The only problem is, it sheds like crazy, leaving it’s “fur” all over my apartment in little balls of fluff. The vacuum only helps for a day or two. Any ideas?

    Also, would love to see your list of favorite places to shop for bedding!

    But what if you need a bigger “room sized” rug and not just an accent rug? This was the case for us and after several weeks of intense looking I found the simplest answer. You can order Martha Stewart carpet (through Home Depot) cut to your custom size and have the edges bound into a rug. We were able to get a 10.5 x10.5 foot rug for our dining room and a 16 x 13.5 foot rug for our living room for a steal compared to other (not nearly big enough) extra large rugs. Bonus, it comes with stain and wear protection.

  7. Aimee says:

    I’ve had my eye on that middle Land of Nod rug for a while. I get giddy thinking of all the stains it will hide :).

  8. CentsationalGirl says:

    Oh no Christina! I’ve had one of those before, and yes the tiny fluff balls are so annoying, it happens to be a shedding carpet ugh. The vacuum is on the only solution I know of :(

  9. CentsationalGirl says:

    Excellent sources Susan, I love FLOR and you’re right Lowes does have a good selection of basic indoor/outdoor rugs :)

  10. What a perfect list! I’m keeping this in my back pocket for the next time I have a brain block searching for one :-) I’ve had great luck at Ballard Designs also for rugs.

  11. I just got two 9×12 rugs at Rugs USA and I loooove them! Plus they always have some big sale going on. I got mine for 70% off! It takes a while to sift through everything, but it’s totally worth it!

  12. Teresa says:

    I just purchased an 8×10 area rug for my living room. I almost special ordered it from Home Depot, which I thought was the best price, but was put off that they would charge me a restocking fee if I didn’t purchase it sight unseen. Well, I did purchase the rug, sight unseen,from Overstock.com for over $60 less than HD’s price (plus no tax and free shipping). Very happy with my purchase. I think I should invest in a rug pad though. They say it extends the life of the carpet.

  13. CentsationalGirl says:

    I can’t believe I forgot them Kelley! Ballard has an excellent selection of affordable indoor/outdoor rugs, will add them to the list, thanks for the reminder!

  14. Barb~ says:

    I also like Home Goods. They have a great selection of rugs and sizes. I like to change things out fairly often, and I found I can usually get a great deal from them. I also LOVE their pillow selection!

  15. Tamara says:

    Great list!!! Overstock and Ballard Designs indoor/outdoor rugs have been my go to places for great prices on rugs!

  16. Janet says:

    I’ve been searching for the right rug for the right price, thank you for the list, this will help!

  17. meg says:

    Thanks for the tips!
    P.S. love all of your picks! The patterns are so pretty.

  18. Pottery Barn, Overstock, and Joss & Main are my go-tos! I’m surprised Pottery Barn isn’t on this list because they have a lot of rugs in the $500 category which really isn’t that bad compared to a lot of other places. I just did a mood board with a couple of rug options for the “thrify shopper”!

    Kate,

    I pined this page so I can refer to it when I need rugs but I couldn’t fine a pin button on your great post of “Favorite online retail stores” That is another post I will want to refer to in the future

    Thanks!

    I love “wayfair.com” we purchased our kitchen rug (for under the table) there. They have great prices and quality, sign up for their E-mail and they’ll send you coupons :)

  21. Cindy says:

    We use one of Dash and Albert’s indoor/outdoor rugs for our bathmat. I wasn’t sure it would work, but we love it. The one thing I wouldn’t do again is buy a rug with white in it. Easy to clean, yes (take it outside and hose it off: my 8-year-old does it), but still shows dirt quickly.

  22. Solana says:

    Fantastic resource list! Thanks for sharing

  23. Nicole says:

    Thank you for this list. I was actually planning to buy a rug soon
