Best Area Rugs Under $500

Certain furnishings, such as area rugs, can totally transform the look and feel of a space. Area rugs are a great way to infuse personality into your home and can be used to help create distinct areas within a larger room. The downside? Area rugs are REALLY expensive. Like with other home furnishings, if you want quality you have to be willing to pay more. It’s not that there aren’t less expensive options out there, but they might not be high quality or they might be really small rugs. After digging a little deeper, I found out that’s not the case. There are tons of high quality, affordable options for area rugs out there, you just have to know where to look.

I combed through the offerings from some of my favorite retailers—Target, Wayfair, and World Market—and pulled together a list of 20 area rugs that are all high quality, attractive, and affordable. A couple notes on my selections:

  1. I chose area rugs from these particular retailers because I’ve shopped at each one (I even bought a rug from Wayfair myself) and can vouch for the quality of their products.

  2. I read reviews for each rug on this list and only chose ones that had lots of positive reviews. So even though I haven’t personally bought these products, plenty of other people out there have and were satisfied with their purchase.

  3. The prices listed below each picture are for an 8’x10’ rug, give or take an inch or two on some of them. There’s been so many times where I was browsing through area rugs and found one that I absolutely loved only to find out the affordable price tag was for a very small rug and the larger size that I wanted was far out of my price range. So if you are looking for a smaller size than what I’ve listed, you’ll be pleasantly surprised!

Enjoy and happy shopping!
