10 RUGS UNDER $100.00 FOR CHIC HOME DECORATING

By Mirelle Macdonald

Here’s a familiar scenario. You move into a new home and want a new rug but have no spare dollars for decking the floors out with decadent threads.

You avoid the expensive rug joints like the plague, knowing that one will take your fancy and you’ll be thinking about it for nights on end.

Have no fear, because we’ve discovered an array of seriously stylish carpets to lay upon your timber floors and no one will even know that they’re an eighth of the price of the luxe ones you’ve saved on Pinterest. Now, you might even afford that couch you’ve had your eye on.

1. RUG OF THE MOMENT: COWHIDE

Let’s start with a very popular style. Mocka’s faux cowhide rug for $89.95 is a splash of black and white that any lounge-room lover will warm to. We like what they’ve done here with the nest of tables, too. Very versatile when entertaining.

2. BEACHSIDE STYLE

For a boho vibe, Pillowtalk’s Barbados Floor Rug ($99) fits right in with timber floors and beachy accessories. You could easily layer this one up with some cushioned pouffes and an embroidered throw. You can smell the ocean air from here.

3. MODERN LIVING

Denim is fast becoming the look to have in your home. Made from recycled denim and jute, Fantastic Furniture’s new Denim rug just scrapes in under the $100 price point and the texture is definitely a talking point, too.

4. TINY SPACES

For small apartments, this concept is a clever one. Big W’s House & Home Faux Fur Rug (only $19) is small, but the colours on offer pack a pastel punch in a cosy lounge room. You can also throw these over a chair or sofa, too. You can find these rugs available in grey at Target here ($29) or white at Kmart here ($19).

5. SCANDINAVIAN STYLE

For a hint of hygge, Kmart’s faux reindeer hide rug has been made in those Scandi tones that you’ve been dreaming about. It’s under $50, which is such a steal, and pairs perfectly alongside that industrial-style book case and handsome print as well.

6. FINE DINING

Moving right along to the dining space. Mocka’s durable striped Rec rug falls well within budget at $79.95 and it very neatly caters to a compact dining setting for intimate gatherings.

7. PRINTS CHARMING

If you want a graphic print in your lounge area or kids’ room, try Pillowtalk’s Pyramid floor rug, for, wait for it…only $39. Available in blue, grey and musk, it will suit any modern home, and looks great combined with matching cushions and ottomans.

8. CHEAP & CHEERFUL

The collection at Kmart (if you’re able to visit when the good stuff drops) is exceptional. Check out this selection: The round jute rugs start at $25, the small ombre and grey shaggy rugs are $49 each. Take your pick!

9. NURSERY IDEAS

Decorating baby’s room on a budget? Don’t pay hundreds for a rug that may need updating when your babe grows out of nappies. Purchase Mocka’s Circa rug for $39.95 and you’ll have spare change for nursery items and soft furnishings.

10. FAMILY ROOM FAIL-SAFE

If you need to outfit a larger space, try out the Hufflett Windows Grey Ceduna flat weave rug at just $89.50 from Bunnings. It covers a vast 1.6m x 2.3m and the best thing? It’s hard-wearing with a non-slip back so it’s great for a high traffic zone.
