Patterned Amazon rugs
Made from: Chenille
Price: From $129
Smarten up your space with this navy blue rug design from celebrity interior designer, Jonathan Adler. Coupled with the manufacturing expertise of Ruggable, this machine-washable area rug is stain and water-resistant and can be conveniently cleaned when it is laundry time.
Made from: Polypropylene
Price: From $43.86
If mid-century modern or coastal cowgirl is your favorite style, then this contemporary take on the classic diamond rug is for you. It's simple and timeless enough to complement most interior design schemes. I find the cream and brown combo is a softer touch to your standard monochrome rug.
Made of: Faux Cashmere
Price: From $42.99
This swirly area rug resembles something we would see on our favorite Instagram interior design accounts — but at an affordable price we didn't expect! Available in blue, pink, green, grey, and black, it's a great way to inject a bit of fun to your modern charm into your space. It's perfect for high-traffic areas and easy to clean (even if you have messy kids or pets).
Colorful Amazon rugs
Go for gold
Made from: Polypropylene
Price: From $40.35
This geometric rug is a great way to add warmth and interest to a room without overwhelming it. Talk about an easy style upgrade! It would look so great as a statement piece in the living room.
Made from: Polypropylene
Price: From $74.94
Our love for distressed abstract rugs is still going strong; if it doesn't look like a cozy version of an oil painting, we don't want it. This kind of print is ideal for busy parts of your home, as it won't show up dirt easily. You might just be looking at your new kitchen rug, for example.
Made from: Faux wool
Price: From $23.99
Bring all those boho vibes into your living room with this colorful rug. We love how the Moroccan pattern contrasts with the bold Californian sunset print, which would look so striking against neutral wooden flooring, or even a navy blue carpet.
Soft Amazon area rugs
Over 25,000 reviews
Made from: Polyester and polyvinyl Chloride
Price: From $12.99
This area rug is the number one bestseller on Amazon — and for good reason too! It has a super soft top layer and a high-density sponge interlayer for the ultimate coziness. It's great for adding warmth in a bedroom, or tummy time if you've got a young child. Rather than having one larger non-grip layer, this mat has thousands of tiny, durable PVC dots to ensure it stays put. FYI, it's not machine-washable, but it can be cleaned using your best vacuum cleaner.
Made from: Cotton
Price: From $21.99
Looking for a rug that shows off your free-spirited side? This well-designed bohemian area rug is just the thing you need. It's soft, breathable, and comfortable on your feet, and has a beautifully bold black Mandala pattern. Though it comes in large rectangular sizes, you'll want to buy one of the runner rugs as they come embellished with a tassel trim along the edges. Position this parallel to your bed, or use it as a narrow living room idea.
Made from: Faux fur
Price: From $19.99
If you're stuck with hardwood floors, which can feel (and look) cold, a faux fur rug is one of the easiest ways to get your home cozied up for all seasons. This one has lots of sizes and colors, with its smallest starting from just $19.99. I'd use this as a bedroom rug so my feet remain warm in the winter months. Shoppers love it too — one user wrote that it's low maintenance and doesn't shed.
Neutral Amazon rugs
Made from: Jute
Price: From $25.54
How cute is jute? This organic pick will work perfectly in any space (go for the round rug if you're working with a small nook). Need to separate your eating and living areas? Done. Even better, it's eco-friendly. We stan a win-win for design and the planet.
Soft and low Pile
Made from: Polypropylene
Color: 15 colors and patterns
Price: From $17.99
Quiet luxury is one of the biggest trends in interior design right now. But go too heavy on light colors, and you risk a bland and anemic scheme. This is where pattern comes in handy. The imitation cashmere carpet oozes opulence, and the abstract detail adds that je ne sais quoi when placed under your coffee table.
Made from: Polyester
Price: From $28.47
This versatile rug, designed with high-traffic areas in mind, seems like a great buy. With over 4k reviews and 4.6 stars, you know you're investing in a great piece. Plus it's neutral enough to go just about anywhere! We love the raised surface and tasseled detail which pays homage to Coastal cowgirl without a touch of tan leather in sight! At less than $30 in beige, it's a total steal.
How to choose a new rug
Considering choosing a new rug yourself? Here are a few things we thought about when selecting products in this guide.
Price: Even if you're paying a decent price, make sure that you're paying for quality. You want a rug to last you more than a few months, so ensure it's durable and made from premium materials.
Style: We may have mentioned the vast array of rug styles out there. Think Persian, jute, rattan, abstract, checkered... the list could go on. Therefore, we'd suggest first thinking about color and what other design elements you have in your house. Pairing it with the color scheme or trend you have going will work to unify the space.
Material type: Authentic or faux fur? Leather or polyurethane? The real deal might be seen as a symbol of wealth, but today's alternatives look just as good. Nowadays, it's not just vegans who opt for the cruelty-free option, and well-made synthetic alternatives last just as long as animal-derived area rugs.
Size: Make sure your rug is big enough for the floor you're looking to cover. Are you needing to zone an area? Perhaps you want to place one at the end of the bed, under your dining table, or in the center of your living space? There are circular, rectangular, and runner variations to measure.
Weave type: Has your Amazon rug been handweaved or made by a machine? While the latter might be cheaper and less artisan, machine-loomed rugs are generally more durable and cope well in high-traffic areas.
Maintenance: Whether it's cookie crumbs or an accidental coffee spill — rugs can get gross and start to smell if they are not looked after. In most cases, you should be able to use your vacuum cleaner to pick up debris, but it's worth checking the care instructions before you chuck it in your washer. If the rug has an intricate design, dyed in a particular way, or made from an organic material, you might need to wash it at a lower temperature or spot-clean it using a gentle upholstery cleaner. Generally speaking, low-pile rugs are easier to care for.
Special features: It's worth checking if your rug has a non-slip backing before you add it to your basket. This will keep the carpet gripped to the floor and will stop it (and you from sliding) — especially if you have hardwood laminate or tiled flooring. And, if you have an outdoor space, investing in an indoor/outdoor area rug that has a weatherproof finish means you will get double the use out of it.
