MUST PIN!  Fabulous list of where to buy affordable rugs by Designer Trapped in a Lawyer's Body!  #affordablerugs

Hello lovely readers!  Hopefully you have read enough of my posts to know that I am cheap thrifty :)  And let’s face it.  Rugs can be very, very expensive.  It’s a frustrating fact because rugs can make a HUGE impact in a room and can really help pull a room together.  No one should be deprived the joy of a beautiful rug.  So I am here to help by sharing with you the top sources that I have found to buy affordable rugs that are still fabulous and beautiful.

Now, let me tell you how I define “affordable rug.”  If I can score a 5 x 8 rug for under $300, I am pretty happy considering what a dramatic impact a rug can make in a room.  And many of the rugs and online sources that I am sharing with you below will score you deals well below $300!  Read on for details and if you agree that this post is a great rug resource, please share it and pin it so that others can benefit from it as well.

If you want more information about a specific rug featured below, click on the name of the rug above the photo of the rug you like, and you should be taken directly to the product page.

Rugs USA

I wish I could remember exactly how I stumbled upon Rugs USA, but I really don’t remember.  I am just grateful I found it!  Rugs USA has LOADS of affordable rugs to choose from.  Two of the rugs in my house are from Rugs USA, including the wool chevron rug in our family room that I LOVE.  Ours is 9 x 12 and I purchased it when it was 70% off {yes, 70%}, so I got it for less than $300!  It’s 100% wool and is large.  That’s a fabulous deal.  Bear in mind that Rugs USA runs promotions almost constantly and they typically range from 30 to 70% off, so if you have your eye on one of Rug USA’s rugs, sit tight and wait for a sale.

Though the rugs at Apt2B are more expensive than some of the other sources, they are still worth checking out, especially if you require a smaller rug, such as a 5 x 7 because some of their rugs are just GORGEOUS!  They are made of a fiber that looks like silk.  Beautiful!  Here are some of my favorites.

First of all, have you heard of zestt?  I had not heard of it until recently and I so wish I had discovered it sooner!  It has STUNNING contemporary and modern decor that is still warm and inviting.  Much like Apt2b.com, the prices are more moderate, but you can find some beautiful, unique 5 x 8 rugs for less than $300 that could make a huge impact in a room.  Here are some of my favorites.
