Rugs are an often overlooked part of home decor, yet they can have a huge impact on your space. Whether you’re decorating your first bedroom or apartment, it’s essential to choose your area rugs carefully to bring things together and polish them off. There’s something about a well-placed area rug that instantly makes your space elevated and aesthetic—but that doesn’t mean buying rugs has to be expensive.
When shopping for home decor essentials, a rug is probably the last thing on your mind. You probably find yourself budgeting for bedding and furniture storage solutions — but area rugs? They probably don’t make up your must-have list of things. And this is exactly why cheap carpets come in handy. For under $120, you can get a durable rug that looks great road More expensive than it actually is. You just have to know where to shop.
To experience the magnificence of area rugs without breaking the bank, browse these five sites that have cheap rugs that look like luxury purchases.
