If like me, you keep looking at one of the rooms in your apartment and thinking that it really needs a refresh, then you don't need to set aside hundreds of dollars to make this happen. In fact, over the years of renovating my spacious apartment, I've come to learn that you can very easily rejuvenate a space by switching or adding just one item. Okay, you guessed it: It's a rug.
The power of a rug is often underrated when it comes to decorating. I love the rugs in my home for doing the obvious: adding a soft touch to my lino floors. And not to mention, they are a godsend in the winter months as they add an extra layer of insulation. Other than that, I've used my rugs to add texture to my rooms, be it my neutral bedroom, my minimalist entryway, or my larger-than-life living room.
Right now, to keep the Black Friday and Cyber Monday momentum going, Wayfair has extended its sale. So you can still get 70% off a brand-new rug and revive your space on a budget. I've handpicked a bunch of Wayfair rugs that I loved when browsing the sale on-site, and in my opinion, all of them look twice the price of their price tag (some of them are actually discounted by 50%). You can tell from my home Instagram account (opens in new tab) that I'm slightly impartial to a rug or five. Being somewhat clumsy and living with a pet, you can also rest assured that I know what to look for when choosing a rug that will last, be it an entryway rug or something for your bedside.

With seven colors and sizes to choose from, use this stain-resistant rug in a high-footfall space. We're thinking of either an entryway or a living room.

This shag rug can be placed pretty much anywhere that you please, from underneath your coffee table to the foot of your bed. Shag rugs are naturally quite easy to clean as long as you have a powerful vacuum. They add so much warmth to a room too. Get cozy with this rug that comes in 19 sizes and nine colors.
This one can be used indoors or out, genius! It's super stain resistant because of this, meaning it's great for anywhere you spend lots of time. Again, it doesn't scream comfort but with a little rug layering (hello faux sheepskin rug you already own!) it can be.
Go for this handmade rug if you want something that's super soft for your bedside or for the end of your bed. It's not the best for high-traffic areas, just bear that in mind. It comes in a bunch of colors and sizes, plus it has a non-stick backing. It's stain-resistant so you won't need to worry if you drop some of your foundation or coffee on it.
Admittedly, jute isn't the softest material for a rug but it is arguably the most durable. This one comes in a whopping 20 sizes and although you can pick different colors, we love it natural. It's tasseled on the top and bottom, and it's great for entryways and kitchens, otherwise, it's perfect for living rooms if you want to do some rug layering for softness.
Add a pop of color to your home with this elegant short-pile rug. It might just look stylish, but it's actually a very smart buy as you can use it anywhere, even in busy spots of your home. It's loomed and it has stain-resistant properties. If the rest of your space is neutral, then this will definitely revive your troublesome room.

Are Wayfair rugs good quality?
It will depend on the brand that you buy your rug from at Wayfair. As a rule, always check the reviews of your new rug if you're unsure of its quality by the photos. Otherwise, Wayfair offers a 30-day return policy, so long as the rug is undamaged and you have its original packaging.
To keep your Wayfair rug in good shape, follow the care and maintenance instructions that come with it. If you spill anything on it, we have a guide on how to clean every type of rug.
