Choosing a white rug isn’t the end of the world

White 8x10 living room rug

It’s always a big deal around our house when we buy a new rug.  It’s even a bigger deal when we buy a white rug.   A few days ago, when we did our mini-purge in the living room, one of the things we got rid of was our old rug under the couch and ottoman.

We loved that rug.  It was grey and had a great geometric design.  But best of all, it felt great under our bare feet with its tall soft nap.  But after 5 years, 2 dogs (and a few accidents), and countless evenings with friends the old 8×10 rug had seen better days.  It was time for a new one.  But our budget wasn’t ready.  So we turned to the Home Depot to see what we could find for $300 or under.

5 white rugs under $300

  1. Evoke Ivory/Blue 8 ft. x 10 ft. Area Rug $200
  2. Elegance Linen 8 ft. x 10 ft. Area Rug $277
  3. Verginia Berber Natural/Black 7 ft. 10 in. x 10 ft. 4 in. Indoor Area Rug – $293
  4. Vennie Shaggy Natural 7 ft. 6 in. x 9 ft. 6 in. Area Rug – $260
  5. Antique Moroccan Beige 7 ft. 10 in. x 10 ft. Area Rug – $279

Ultimately we decided on #5 the Antique Moroccan due to its size and price.  Plus it was so soft and plush it didn’t need any padding to go underneath.  I just love how it brightens up the room, and make the entire place seem bigger and airier.

As for being white – I really don’t worry about that anymore.  It’s not in a high traffic area, the kiddo (or us for that matter) don’t eat in the Living room unless we have company over, and if it does get dirty, a we can quickly go over it with our Dyson cordless vac.  Plus for under $300 bucks, how can you go
