Favorite Affordable Rugs

So if you have watched my Instagram Stories, you have probably seen that we are in the middle of a dining room overhaul.  When we moved in a year ago it was one of the few rooms I felt I could leave alone for the time being.  The paint color was a dark grey, and aside from the HORRID light fixture, it was not totally embarrassing to leave as it was.  That being said, it’s not necessarily my style, and now that most of the rest of the main floor is semi finished, I am ready to dive in. The rest of the dining room talk will wait, but I do want to talk area rugs for this weeks Friday Fav’s post.  I feel like area rugs really make a room feel complete, so have been searching for some of my favorite options, so here are my favorite affordable rugs. (We are doing a new light fixture, so some of my favorites were posted a few months ago, here)

ONE.     TWO.     THREE.     FOUR.     FIVE.     SIX.    SEVEN.     EIGHT.     NINE.


My criteria when looking for these rugs:

UNDER 300 dollars for a rug that would work under my 8 foot table

Low pile – because it’s a dining room people

Light-ish in color.  My dining room will have a bold ceiling, so the rug can’t be super dark

Accessibility – I love Rugs USA because of the ease of ordering and price points!
