Rugs don’t have to cost a fortune, in fact, there are rugs available to suit all tastes and budgets. Gone are the days when it would cost you hundreds of pounds for a stylish rug to complement your décor. Nowadays, with a much wider range of materials and styles available than ever before, it has never been easier to find an economical rug that is as bargainous as it is beautiful.
Polypropylene rugs are one of the most economical rugs that you can buy and not only are they available in a range of designs to suit all homes, they are also a durable and hardwearing option, so great for high traffic areas in your house.
Whether you opt for a brightly coloured floral polypropylene rugs, a traditional oriental designed rug or a contemporary Union Jack print rug, the durable polypropylene fibres will ensure that your rug lasts for years to come. Polypropylene is the most popular man-made rug fibre available today, and it is resilient and stain resistant. This means that most rugs woven from polypropylene are easy to wipe clean and wash by hand or on the gentle cycle of your machine. These rugs are also fade-resistant which means they will maintain their fresh and new look for longer, making them a great choice for areas such as children’s bedrooms, kitchens and hallways.
Choosing a wool blend rug can also be an economical option, as these are cheaper than rugs woven completely from wool. Many online retailers have frequent sales where you can pick up a bargain, often finding rugs at half price or less.
Another option if your budget is tight is to invest in several, smaller rugs. Cotton blend or shaggy pile rugs are usually inexpensive, and several small round rugs can look really funky, particularly on laminate or wooden floors in a contemporary apartment. Sheepskin rugs are also an affordable option, particularly if choosing a smaller rug for a specific area, such as in front of the fireplace or sofa.
Hunting for economical rugs which are as easy on the wallet as they are on the eye doesn’t have to be time consuming and stressful. It’s easy to find budget priced rugs online, and you’ll generally find that most cheaper rugs are also designed to be durable. Polypropylene rugs will last for years to come and can be found for under £20, making these an economical and stylish option for any home.
