Rug shopping isn’t like it used to be. (Mostly) gone are the days when you’d go to a store and sift through rugs hanging on a carousel, limited by what was it stock. Now, the online options are truly endless, and you can find rugs of every shape, style, and color at both curiously low prices and high up in the quadruple digits. Hence, it goes without saying that it pays to be strategic. If you’re not committed to buying a vintage or one-of-a-kind rug, then there are plenty of budget-friendly sites available to you—and depending on when you shop, you can score huge discounts to save even more.

One such site I’ve recently discovered is Boutique Rugs, which has a giant selection of rugs at incredibly low prices plus frequent deals to sweeten the deal. You can shop by color, size, style, material, and price, with options including unusual materials like silk, leather, bamboo, and hemp. If you’re looking for something particular, there’s a large assortment of outdoor and kids rugs you shouldn’t skip. And right now, the brand’s Black Friday sale is on, with up to 65 percent off all rugs and free shipping with code BF65!

Now, you might be a little suspicious about those low prices and huge deals, but I’m here to tell you that the site holds up to its promise of delivering great quality rugs. A little background: I’ve been living at home with my parents the past few months as COVID-19 has devastated NYC, and been up close and personal with my mom’s newfound obsession hobby of redecorating our entire house. Like many, she’s found that the best way to deal with all the stress of the past few months is to throw herself into home improvement projects, from painting to DIYing to shopping.

When she set her sights on the family room, it was obvious that a new rug was in order. Our family room is dark, with very little natural light, a brown brick fireplace, and dark wood built-ins, so my mom’s been wanting to invest in a lighter rug for years. Not only that, but the current rug was too small for the space—it was meant to be a temporary solution but instead stuck around for years. Finally, we logged onto the site, filtered by size and color, and after perusing a few promising options we noticed this beauty and knew it was The One.

We didn’t want something all-white, but rather something neutral and not boring. This patterned rug checks all the boxes: It’s a really pretty gray color with white textured motifs, and fits in with the overall homey and comfortable vibe of the room. When it arrived, we couldn’t believe how soft it was—it doesn’t feel like your typical polypropylene rug. And despite its traditional style, it looks and feels warm and inviting, perfect for a room where everyone hangs out. The best part, though, was the price. Oversized rugs (ours is 11’10” x 14’11”) aren’t cheap, but we got 50 percent off thanks to a spring promotion—and right now, it’s 65 percent off. We’ve had it for a while now, and I can confirm that in a household of six people, it’s been (shocker!) something all of us can agree on.

The rug in all its cozy glory. (P.S. not sure why our walls look like two different colors...)
