In today’s world, many of us are on a budget. This could be a budget for our entire life, mapping out exactly where our money goes, or it could just be a simple budget when purchasing an individual item for the home, like one of our beautiful rugs. Buying a new rug for the home can be a pricey endeavor, so many of us are looking for rugs with a cheaper price tag. While some of these rugs sacrifice quality for price, many of them are simply made out of less expensive materials, thus significantly lowering the costs. For those of us looking for nicely priced cheap rugs that won’t break the bank, it can be helpful to know what’s available to us. So, which rug types offer high quality workmanship, for less cost?
- Acrylic rugs – This material is inexpensive and poses many benefits. They come in a variety of colours and patterns, can easily be washed, dried, and stored at home, and are generally a good choice for those that suffer from allergies. Acrylics won’t last as long as more expensive materials, and are prone to pilling, but with proper care are still a good choice for budget minded people.
- Polyester rugs – This material is another cost conscious choice. It is similar to nylon, but at a far cheaper price. It’s an ideal rug for families because it is stain and fade resistant. Negatives to this material exist also, including limited colour choice and a low bounce back rate – which basically means if furniture is place on top it it, it can cause irreversible damages.
- Cotton rugs – Yet another cheaper rug material choice, this material poses some great benefits, including being biodegradable and machine washable and dryable. These rugs are great for a family home since they’re so easy to clean up, but it must be noted that they don’t last as long as other choices, and they are known to collect dust quite quickly.
These are not the only options when on a budget. There are other synthetic materials that you can buy at a lower price, and they’re still good options. In addition to this you can purchase rugs for sale, and keep an eye out for bargain buys in our cheap rug section – you may even be able to score a good price on one of the best rugs out there: the wool rug. No matter what you’re budget is, there is a rug out there that will work for you, you just have to find it in our store.
