Anyone who has gone rug shopping knows that good rugs can be pricey. A genuine rug for sale that will last a lifetime can be more expensive than your car. Many of such businesses are merely re-sellers. They purchase rugs at wholesale costs, mark them up, and resell them for a significant profit. They are able to do so because nearly everyone else is doing the same thing. Our rugs are hand-knotted and sold at wholesale prices at RugKnots. We then sell them to clients and interior designers directly. We cut out the middlemen to save money on markup while ensuring that our oriental rugs are 100% authentic and of the highest quality. (A percentage of the revenues is also donated to help establish schools in Pakistan.) Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions regarding these carpets. This post includes 10 of our most popular low-cost rugs that are available at wholesale pricing, as well as 5 high-quality, low-cost rugs from other sellers that won't break the budget. 

15 Cheap Area Rugs to Buy Online Today

Modern Ziegler Rug

This rug is part of our inexpensive area rug 8x10 collection, which is one of the most popular rug sizes due to the number of rooms it may fit in. This rug is hand-knotted with 81 knots per square inch and is produced from 100 percent natural wool. Brown is the main hue, with white embellishments to bring it out. This color and style look fantastic with furniture that is all one color. A re-seller would charge between $4,000 and $6,000 for this rug. RugKnots has it for less than $2,000 on their website. Because this rug is approximately 7 feet by 10 feet in size, I recommend placing it in a living room, bedroom, or any other room with adequate space. Place it under the coffee table on the living room floor, with your furniture arranged around the perimeter. Place it perpendicular to the bed in the bedroom, with a portion of the rug jutting out.

Runner Rug

Some of my favorite rugs are runner rugs. They allow you to spice up a boring hallway by a few levels. You may also use it to spice up an entryway or any other place that can accommodate a rug of this size and shape. A runner's colors give it a strong personality. The dark black stands out against the light tan, drawing your attention to it. It's a nice appearance for a hallway, but you can also make a good first impression in your foyer by putting this rug there. Those who enjoy delicate needlework will appreciate the detailed flowering designs, fanciful swirls, and classic Peshawar Ziegler motifs. Each vertical end is also accented with a short fringe.

Cheap Modern Rugs

Finding inexpensive rugs without sacrificing quality or style can be difficult. In a world where numerous manufacturers are continually striving to undercut one other's pricing, this is especially true (which means lower quality and durability). Moroccan rugs are known for their enormous geometric patterns that are repeated multiple times. This design also features a lot of lighter browns, blues, and greens that mix well with darker furniture and surroundings. Moroccan rugs are also thinner than their European equivalents. As a result, less material is used, resulting in lower prices.

Custom Area Rugs

Do you know what kind of rug will look fantastic in your room but can't seem to find one that's already made? You're not the only one who feels this way. That is why homeowners and interior designers alike prefer custom rugs. These carpets can be manufactured in any size, design, or style, and they can be customized to meet your specific requirements. They allow purchasers to be creative in order to ensure that they get exactly what they want from their purchase. For a real-life example, see Martha Gibbons' case study on how she purchased and received the ideal rug in just ten weeks. (Most rug purchases need at least 3-5 months of research.) We enjoy completing custom rug orders because it allows us to provide our customers with exactly what they desire.

Overdyed Ziegler Rugs

In the realm of oriental rugs, the overdyed Ziegler is a must-have. It stands out from the crowd thanks to its stunning design and dark, bold hues. These enormous area rugs have the same stunning design as the contemporary and Peshawar Chobi Ziegler, but they've been revitalized by the overdyeing method. The artists have centuries of experience and only utilize hand-knotted ancient rugs that have been cleansed by hand and dyed with all-natural vegetable dye. This ensures that your new piece is not only aesthetically beautiful but also environmentally friendly. (We use cruelty-free materials in all of our carpets.)

Kilim Dhurrie Rugs

Most other rug types are thicker than Kilim Dhurrie (or flat weave) rugs. They have a lighter, flatter texture and a rougher texture. Kilim carpets are primarily made of wool and are produced throughout Central Asia and the Middle East. Bright colors, geometric shapes (as shown above), and bold designs are included. Their popularity arises from the several locations where they are made around the world, as well as the various subsets in which they are made (such as Turkish Kilims, Anatolian Kilims, Tribal Kilims, and Soumak Kilims). They are also less expensive than many other designs of oriental rugs since less material is used. This makes them an excellent choice for first-time rug shoppers or those on a tight budget.

Transitional Area Rugs

In this context, "transitional" refers to the blending of two distinct styles (contemporary and traditional). The crisp designs on this rug reflect its contemporary style, although the arrangement and color scheme is classic. This combination produces absolutely one-of-a-kind designs that you won't see in many other styles. A transitional rug is worth considering if you like individuality and current antiquity.

Inspired Design Rugs

Inspired design carpets are among the most distinctive on the market. They have a mix of contemporary and classic designs, similar to transitional carpets. Their designs, on the other hand, have a little more freedom of expression, as evidenced by the various colorful floral patterns in the image above. Rugs with inspired designs are durable, fade-resistant, and easy to clean and care for, making them useful as well as beautiful.

Green Shag Area Rug

Overdyed Antique Rugs

Antique rugs are a piece of history in themselves. Many, on the other hand, might fade and lose their brilliance over time. Overdyeing comes into play in this situation. An overdyed antique rug retains its old appearance and feels while being revitalized by the additional layers of dye soaked into it. Overdyeing is a lovely procedure for extending the life of a rug. This rug has a striking slate-blue wash with antique motifs to complement it. A classic Peshawar design approach with thick, multi-tiered borders complements the current color. For a striking look and feel, use this rug on the floor of your living room, hallway, guest room, or bedroom.

Blue Overdyed Area Rug

Pak Persian Rugs

Persian rugs are among the most fashionable on the market. These hand-knotted works of art add a bold, inviting appeal to any space. Pak Persian rugs have long been known for their intricate flower patterns. They were only found in royal palaces, majestic places of worship, and the residences of the wealthy. You may now own them for a fraction of the price they used to be (relative to the times). Pak Persian rugs look fantastic behind a huge dining table, in a formal sitting room, in a long corridor (as shown above), or in your master bedroom.

Brown Kazak Area Rug

Outdoor Rugs

An outdoor rug can set you apart from your colleagues (or your client's peers) right away. Many people avoid using outdoor carpets because they are more difficult to clean and maintain. However, if you install it in the correct location, like as beneath an overhang on your porch, you can reduce the amount of upkeep required. (And remember to bring your outside rug inside if it's raining!) You may have a fantastic rug to brighten up your backyard, front patio, or any empty space outside your home if you can perform these basic activities.

Bokhara Rugs

Bokhara Rugs have been discovered to be some of the best quality rugs that are available today. They have been made for many years, and they are used in all sizes of rooms because their texture is very soft which makes them ideal to use anywhere. Even though Bokhara Rugs are not cheap rugs, you can get them at a low price if you buy from pre-Columbian South and Central America, Central Asia, Japan, Southeast Asia, Africa, and Central Asia. The history of this rug style, like its beauty, is amazing. (However, historians, anthropologists, and archaeologists cannot agree on the origins of the design.) (Talk about a hot topic!) With its intricate design columns and varied tones of blue and brown, this rug readily draws the eye in for a closer look. Fading designs in dark colors are interspersed between each column. This brings the overall design into balance and makes it more appealing to the eye. It has a rustic atmosphere that works well in some household spaces, such as naturally lit guest rooms or your dining room.

Here are some frequently asked questions from our customers

1. Where can I get the cheapest polypropylene rugs?

You can get the cheapest polypropylene rugs from our store. Polypropylene rugs are one of the most cost-effective rug solutions on the market since they are machine-made (along with nylon). Polypropylene has its own set of benefits and drawbacks when compared to wool and other common materials.

2. Are Low-Cost Persian Rugs Long-Lasting?

A cheap Persian rug is not necessarily low-quality, but it is important to remember that expensive does not always mean high quality. A Persian rug can be manufactured in many different ways and made from various materials ranging from silk all the way down to fiberglass or even paper. There are also several types of Persian rugs including authentic handmade, imitation handmade, or hand-knotted. These rugs would look good in nearly any room depending on rug size, materials used, and color.

3. Is it okay to use a cheap rug in my bedroom?

Bedroom rugs are usually used to add warmth and comfort whereas a family room may use rugs for style. For example, an expensive Persian rug in a bedroom would not be recommended. Although these gorgeous area rugs can last generations when properly cared for, they also tend to shed fibers due to the materials that were made with which is why it's important to use high-quality rugs in your bedroom. And it is okay to use cheap rugs in your bedroom as long as they don't shed fibers and are not too busy. The bedroom rug should be neutral and simple.

4. What is the cost of a medium pile rug?

Medium pile rugs are great for adding warmth and comfort to any room. They are usually used in the bedroom but can also be used throughout living rooms, family rooms, dining rooms, or even kitchens. These rugs range anywhere from $20 - $150 depending on the size and quality of material (wool vs polypropylene).
