Guest Picks: 20 Affordable Area Rugs

The floor in the front of my sofa is looking awfully bare. The requirements? A fun patterned rug that doesn’t cost more than $1,000. — Melanie from You’re My Fave

Hand-Hooked Chelsea Southwest Multicolor Wool Rug – $264.34

I don’t usually go for Southwest themes, but I saw this rug in a bedroom that was not themed and the colors and patterned seemed fresh and modern.

West Elm

Gradiated-Stripe Cotton Rug – $19

Classic stripes in three different colors with a accent trim? I am sold.

Urban Outfitters

Bead Silhouette Printed Rug – $50

A contemporary pop of pattern and colour. It’s about the small side but might make a great addition to a kitchen or laundry area.


Island Graphite Chevron Rug – $199

A nice neutral rug with a subtle chevron pattern can be easily added to any area.


Up-Close Cranesbill Rug – $398

This modern abstract pattern will add colour and interest to your flooring. I enjoy that the most important colour is a nice shade of gray instead of a white that dirties simpler.


Expanding Colorscape Rug – $698

My husband is concerned with all the coziness of this rug we select. This will provide him the softness he needs while not compromising about the pattern that I need.

Home Decorators Collection

Rosa Area Rug – $69

I enjoy the safe color of the one. It would not be hard to fit and it sill conveys interest.

Home Decorators Collection

Chrysanthemum Area Rug – $119

Although florals are often regarded as girly, the large-scale pattern and navy colour of the rug make it a bit more masculine. At least that is the argument I would give to my spouse.

Garnet Hill

Bogart Flat-Weave Wool Rug – $68

If Oprah recommends it then it has to be useful. I really like the deep teal one.

Garnet Hill

Droplets Hooked Wool Rug – $98

This droplet reminds me of this classic stem pattern from Orla Kiely. That’s a win in my book.

Garnet Hill

Houndstooth Flat-Weave Wool Rug – $188

Houndstooth is one of these classic patterns I don’t think I’ll ever tire of. If you stare at it for too long it might cause a hassle though.

Cost Plus World Market

Nomad Sculpted Rug – $349.99

I typically don’t go for red, but combine it with a nice gray and it looks sharp enough to blanket the floor.

Dash & Albert Rug Company

Spinnaker Woven Cotton Rug – $30

Dash and Albert have stripes down. I really like how brightly colored this rug is, as well as the very affordable price.

Rugs USA

Firouz Shadow Ikat Ivory Rug – $209

This ikat pattern looks way more lush and expensive than it really is. It almost looks like something from the pages of a magazine.

Handmade Alexa Modern Damask Wool Rug – $205.27

Just how long has the damask pattern been about? Long enough to know that it’s always going to be a classic.

Amy Butler Hand-Tufted Ivory Floral New Zealand Wool Rug – $499

Amy Butler knows how to operate a blueprint, and this flowery rug is no exception. It’s a great cost for your designer look.

Dash & Albert Rug Company

Tattersall Black/Ecru Woven Cotton Rug – $33

I feel like this one would fit in well at a cabin. It kind of cries “mountain man.”

Handmade Alexa Pino Suzani Rug – $295.79

I haven’t really considered lavender, but I am thinking it might certainly work paired with navy and gray.

Rugs USA

Cenon Ikat Black Rug – $209

Another ikat pattern that looks luxe in more manly colors.

Rugs USA

Homespun Modern Trelllis Charcoal Rug – $59

Gray is my preferred neutral, and this trellis pattern feels classic yet fresh. Is that possible?
