Budget Sources for Area Rugs

It’s been three years since I rounded up my favorite sources for affordable rugs, so I thought it time to do another list. It’s hard for me to spend a lot of money on a rug. When I add together the wear and tear that comes from kids and pets on top of my everlasting longing for a new look, it results in a 2-3 year life expectancy on a rug before I’m ready to donate the old and move on to something new.

For my home, I always buy 6 x 9’ rugs because that size fits my living room, family room, office, and dining room space so I can rotate them to my heart’s desire. I find 6 x 9’ rugs are a little harder to come by since most rugs come in either 5 x 7′ which (for me) is always too small or 8 x 10’ which is always a bit large.

Today I’m sharing my list of the top go-to sources for good looking and affordable rugs, the first places I visit whenever I need to makeover a space on a budget. Most offer plenty of options for an 8 x 10′ rug under $300.
