Style under foot: 5 room-transforming rugs for less than $200
If you’re looking for a huge, high-quality rug, start searching at places like estate sales. Because the larger the rug, and the finer the weave, well, the higher the cost. But a small, well-made rug also will make a huge impact on a room.
And, while they’re practical, their impact goes far beyond simply warming your feet in the winter–which is finally drawing to an end, says Chrissy Madison, spokeswoman for Pier 1 Imports.
“Rugs are a stylist’s secret to tie a space together,” she says. “Simply layer your favorite rug with your furniture, pillows and other accessories to transform your room.”
And what’s better than hanging out on a porch or patio on a warm spring day? A durable indoor/outdoor rug can bring that space to life, she notes.
We’ve pulled a few rugs, all priced under $200, that are sure to bring a bit of spring to your living room, bedroom, patio or just about any space. Yes, shoppes, style is under foot!
