I think we can all agree that shopping for area rugs can be overwhelming. There is so many styles, sizes and prices to choose from online.
In this post, I will share 12 affordable and stylish area rugs online. I’ve included a range of colors (bold, neutral and in between) to choose from.
Also, let’s talk about texture! I know the shag rug ended years ago, but it’s fun to have different options depending on what room your rug will be in – like a living room, bedroom, or office.
At the end of the post I will share Elsie’s tips for keeping carpets clean. This is a popular question in the A Beautiful Mess world since so many of us love bright rugs.
Types of rugs in this post: Shag, Jute, Chenille, Wool, Tufted, Moroccan and Bohemian.
Off-white jute carpet
Price Range: $30 to $648
You can’t go wrong with a simple jute rug. Elsie swears by this one and has used it time and time again. The neutral color goes with it everything and it is easy to clean. And it comes in three other colors (natural, navy and black).
Orla Chenille rug
Price Range: $39 to $189
This soft chenille rug has rich colors and a classic geometric print. It comes in several sizes and the largest is under $200. Score!
Labyrinth tufted rug
Price Range: $49 to $239
The tone-on-tone maze pattern of this cream colored carpet adds pattern without being overwhelming. I love a cream rug in a bedroom or a “shoe off zone” to keep your rug looking great for longer.
Bungalow ivory carpet
Price Range: $90 to $608
Those are my colors! I love orange and pink together and the addition of green is the icing on the cake. I always take reviews into consideration when buying a rug and this one has tons of 4.8 stars.
Moroccan shag rug
Price Range: $107 to $743
File this Moroccan shag rug under the “classic” category. The design is so versatile and you can use it in a colorful room to add texture and depth to the room.
Watercolor woven rug
Price Range: $64 to $1,198
How amazing it is this woven carpet? The colorful ombre look is incredible, and the way it’s made (by artisans committed to fair labor practices) is even better. I really love this rug.
Carpet in imitation cowhide
Price range: $150 to $250
I had no idea imitation cowhide were easy to clean until Emma told me about one she had in her dining room. The fibers can be spot cleaned so you don’t have to worry so much about spills. Another neutral rug that can “dress up” any room!
Moroccan jute rug
Price Range: $79 to $389
I have been looking for a new blush pink rug for my living room, and this is on my list. It is made from an eco-friendly fiber that is easy to clean, which is extra important as I have a dog. This rug is also available in three other colors (beige, light gray and yellow).
Boho Dots area rug
Price range: $160 to $710
Another rug that would look SO good in a bedroom or dining room. It is simple dotted carpet with a little extra, and it’s thick enough that it doesn’t need a pillow underneath. Don’t forget to check it out when you buy your next rug!
What is the best way to clean a carpet?
Elsie owns a mix of vintage and newer rugs, and she swears by them this cleaner. Keeping your carpets vacuumed (at least once a week) is another trick to keep them looking new and fresh. You can read more about her tips for cleaning carpets here.
Speaking of vintage rugs, Elsie’s favorite places to shop for them are:
