Six Neutral 9′ x 12′ Rugs for Under $300!

By | Haus Hacks | 4 Comments

As you may have noticed from my recent house goals list, I have been on a perpetual search for an affordable 9′ x 12′ area rug for our living room. And by affordable, I mean less than $300. I’ve struck gold recently with my search (one of these is in my living room now!), so I wanted to share my finds. I love when I can find people some good deals!

Six 9' x 12' Rugs Under $300

1.) Olga Grey Area Rug – $249 with free shipping – Wayfair

2.) Banded Bird Eye Diamond Rug – $301 with free shipping – RugsUSA

3.) Flatweave Gingham Tartan Rug – $159 (!!) with free shipping – RugsUSA

4.) Ford Gray Area Rug – $253 with free shipping – Wayfair

5.) Double Diamond Trellis Rug – $288 with free shipping – RugsUSA

6.) Mercury Black Area Rug – $315 with free shipping – Wayfair

Some important things to note: 

The awesome RugsUSA prices are due to a Presidents Day Sale. Be sure to use code PDS25 to get 25% off by 2/23.

I sort of cheated on the price of #6, but Wayfair sends out 15% off coupons fairly frequently. My suggestion would be to add it to your cart and see if a mailer or email shows up a few days later.

#1, #2, #4 and #6 are machine-loomed, polypropylene rugs. I’m a big fan (durable, stain-resistant, soft to the touch, affordable) but I always recommend a rug pad if you want the cozy, cushy, “sink your feet in” feel a hand-knotted, wool rug might provide. Here is my favorite rug pad.

#3 is a flatweave, dhurrie-type rug. Think more heavy blanket. It’ll wrinkle and buckle when you walk on it. However, that price is insane and would be awesome on top of carpet in a bedroom.

I welcomed #1 into my home last week and I’ll share pictures soon. It’s heaven. And super cute. It’s a popular rug—I see it on blogs and IG all the time—but that is for a reason. Simple, neutral with just enough pattern to add some style. Me likey.

Happy shopping!
