Need affordable large area rug for family room
October 9, 2012 in Design Dilemma
I want an expensive looking 9x13 or 9x11 area rug for my family room
which has an hand beaded ceiling with windows that have 4 1/2" shutters same mahogany stain as ceiling. Rust and Dk. Green and Chocolate brown are furniture colors with an old work tumbled travertine floor. This is an highly used area so I want richlook but do not want to put an expensive rug here. most likely rug will have to be replaced due to wear and spills etc.

Inside Out Staging and Design has huge selection and everything including rugs ships for $2.95. I have actually had to ship rugs back and the process was painless and return shipping was very reasonable. Make sure you only tear top of packaging if you buy online so you can easily put it back in if you need to return it.
If you need REALLY durable, might consider indoor/outdoor rugs that you can just hose off :)! They have come a long way since the fake green grass variety :)!

If you don't mind a plain or overall pattern rug, you might find a nice remnant at your local carpet store. It is not very expensive to have it bound. On the other hand, synthetic oriental-look rugs aren't very expensive, are easy to clean, and hide dirt unto you get around to having it cleaned.

Do you like any of these? They're recommended by Oprah and they're wool so I believe they will wear well. They also come in a variety of colors: [houzz=

Have you looked into Flor Tiles? They are customizable, take a lot of abuse, and they have gorgeous wool tiles. If you spill on one, you can pick it up and clean it, or replace it with a new tile. Check it out:
