Our rooms require large rugs to avoid the “postage stamp” look and so IN THE BEGINNING I went with the NO RUGS is better than a dinky one. But eventually I found great affordable rugs and I am going to share some of them with you today.
We have the 10 x 14 sea grass rugs in both living rooms and they are AWESOME. They do not show dirt…are incredibly easy to clean and do not collect the dog hair the way my wool rugs do. BALLARD DESIGNS has frequent “sales” and specials so the already great prices are often discounted another 20% or better. Right now they have one which is “save $50 for every $200 you spend” so basically 25% off!
MANY PEOPLE LAYER THEIR RUGS AND PUT A SOFTER RUG WITH SOME COLOR RIGHT ON TOP OF THE SEA GRASS RUG – LOOKS GREAT!
BELIEVE IT OR NOT….I HAVE GOTTEN NUMEROUS RUGS AT HOME DEPOT. ONLINE. They carry HOME FURNISHINGS designers like SURYA and SAFAVIEH and have great competitive pricing. I needed some basic rugs in a pinch right before we listed the house and I got 3 – great 8 x10 shag rugs for $149 each!
THESE RUGS ARE SUCH A GREAT FRESH SOLUTION TO BARE FLOORS AND NOW WE KEEP BABY GATES UP TO KEEP THE CRITTERS OUT! THE RUGS ARE NICE AND SOFT AND THE KIDS LOVE THEM.
I have LONG been a fan HUGE FAN of Dash and Albert Rugs. They are incredibly well made and last for years. They are not cheap but when you are ready to INVEST in REALLY GOOD RUGS – they are worth considering. Our Front hall rug took a massive amount of traffic for 10 years and held up beautifully.
I recently swapped out our front hall rug – NOT because we needed to but because I was ready for a change. did you know Dash and Albert has a OUTLET???? YES, they do, right on the Annie Selke/Dash and Albert site and they are constantly adding new styles and colors when rugs are discontinued. The markdowns are amazing.
The Upstairs hall rugs are a discontinued DASH AND ALBERT pattern called “JAMAICAN TICKING” . I like the cotton woven rugs because they can be turned over.
I HOPE YOU WILL TAKE A MINUTE TO CHECK THESE SITES OUT IF YOU ARE IN THE MARKET FOR RUGS! GREAT QUALITY AT AFFORDABLE PRICES! CANT BEAT THAT!
