Layered Area Rugs

For a while now (about a year and a half to be exact), we've been shopping around for an affordable area rug for the living space in our apartment. Of course there is plenty out there to choose from, but nothing is quite as affordable as I would like. I didn't want to spend a few hundred dollars committing to an area rug that was going to be used to decorate our "temporary" apartment. Being that we're renting, I've tried to decorate our place with as little money as possible. Certain pieces can go with us wherever we go, but others might not translate so well.

Nevertheless, we finally came up with an inexpensive solution for our area-rug-less-space. During a recent trip to Home Goods, we found multiple woven cotton area rugs in a variety of colors and patterns. They were small, mostly 3'x5' or 4'x6', but filled with fun colors. For $12.99-$14.99 a piece, we were able to get a few. Now they are scattered around our apartment to form various little vignettes here and there. Another plus is that they wear very well!

So instead of opting for one large area rug in a space, try incorporating multiple smaller rugs for a fun eclectic look.
