Budget Friendly Rug Tips

Budget-Friendly Rug

Craving a fresh start in your space? Consider looking at the floor first. What’s underfoot can make a big impact on how your entire space looks and feels. Of course, shopping for rugs on a tight budget can seem like a daunting prospect; but that’s where this mini-guide comes in! All of the rugs featured in this post cost under $200 for at least a 5-by-7 foot size, and often much bigger.

The dining room, with the inevitable dinnertime spills, is a great place to choose a budget rug! And since this tends to be a less-frequently used room, why not try something a little bit different? The striking red tile print rug in the square shape shown here would look amazing in a square dining room, with a round table. For a rectangular dining room, go with a rectangular rug and rectangular or oval table.

In the bedroom, seek out something lush and soft, like the ikat-inspired rug shown here. Soothing shades of gray, blue, lavender, and cream are restful, so save the more lively colors for social spaces like the living and dining rooms. Room-size rugs look great in the bedroom, and give you the maximum softness underfoot, so get the biggest possible size that fits your space. The one shown here is only $199.50 for a 7-foot 10-inch by 10-foot rug!

Speaking of social spaces, either the black and beige zigzag rug or black and beige tile print rug would make a fun, graphic statement in a modern or glam living room. For a fun pop of color, try using this sky blue rug beneath white and light wood furniture for a fresh, simple look. Or, for a more classic vibe, pair this elegant charcoal and ivory rug with traditional dark wood furniture. And of course, you can’t go wrong with a classic natural fiber rug which can be used alone or layered beneath a more colorful rug.

Trend Watch: Tribal Textiles

Tribal Textiles 1

The kilim rug is an increasingly popular floor covering for its ability to bring a relaxed, worldly vibe to homes of all styles. Yet the history of the kilim extends beyond its use on the floor! A traditional weaving method of nomadic tribes in central Asia, the kilim was used by its creators for everything from blankets to wall hangings.

So why not take inspiration from the origins of kilim rugs and incorporate tribal patterns throughout your space? An assortment of woven pillows in a tribal pattern gives warmth and sophistication to a sofa, while a global-inspired wool throw at the foot of the bed feels welcoming and stylish. These age-old textiles bring a touch of history wherever you need it!

Get The Look–Artful Kids Room

Sawyer Benson kids room
When I saw this kids room while scrolling through Pinterest I had to stop and investigate further. Such a gorgeous space designed by Sawyer Berson — I love how they framed the children’s art as the focal point for the wall. It’s so personal, playful and colorful. With a light pink and white base in the room, the colorful work pops right off the wall.
Want to get the look? Start with a light pink patterned rug and an ivory bookcase. Putting the bookcase between two beds also serves as a night stand and will conveniently hold all the books for reading before bedtime. Add some color to the beds with a poppy striped pillow and a palm green pillow. For extra warmth and possible tent-making add a white throw, and store it in a round ottoman where other toys could be stored as well. And if you don’t have any artwork from the kids to frame, this Life is a Beach II image by Mary Calkins is a colorful alternative.
