We’ve previously hunted out cheap but expensive-looking accents for your bedroom, your kitchen, the nursery, and more. Now it’s time to drill into the specifics and focus on cheap but expensive-looking rugs. Whether you’re zhushing up your living room or want something more durable for indoor/outdoor use, you’re in luck. We’ve scoured Amazon to find the best cheap (but expensive-looking) accents. Below, everything from a classic Persian-style rug to a modern circular jute option.
A hardy indoor/outdoor rug with a pleasing contrast panel.
The contrast of weaves on this La Redoute-ish rug make it look far more expensive than it is.
A modern design that would be ideal in a playroom.
An area rug that has impact but won’t overwhelm the room.
A shag rug that’s not too shaggy.
We like this jolly runner, and it’s another good playroom option.
Yeehaw for the home.
Or leopard-print, if you’d prefer.
We suggest using this by your bedside so you can squish your toes into the fluff as you rise in the morning.
A slightly cheaper pink variant.
We love the orange and red colourway.
A little more expensive than others on this list, but a good price for a hand-tufted rug.
This fluffy rug is a steal (and dark enough to hide any coffee stains).
A circular (Fair Trade) jute rug, which would suit a smaller living room.
A classic design at an Ikea price.
