Best rug for your bedroom:

Fluffy Rug

What's better than a fluffy rug in your bedroom? Not much. It's glorious sinking your feet into a plush hug first thing in the morning and before you go to bed at night.

The best things about this rug?

It's non-toxic and hypoallergenic, doesn't shed, is easy to clean (vacuum and wash), and stays in place with the help of thousands of durable PVC dots on the bottom.



Best rug for your livingroom:

Bohemian Area Rug

The reason I love busy bohemian rugs for high-traffic areas? They don't show dirt as quickly.

You can go without cleaning for a few days or weeks, and nobody will be the wiser.

It brightens up any room as long as your furniture and accessories are neutral colors (unless you like lots of colors).



Best rug for dining room:

Abstract Distressed Area Rug

When you buy a rug for your dining area, and you're planning on putting your dining room table on the rug - make sure the rug is big enough so that your table and chairs can fit on top and then some.

When you get a rug with a distressed look, it'll hide any marks the chairs make when being pulled out and pushed back in.



Best rug for entryway:

Rubber Backing Non-Slip Doormat

A non-slip doormat is a must. Imagine flying off your feet every time you enter the house because your doormat can't hold it about no.

This one is absorbent, durable, and easy to clean - everything you want in a doormat.

It comes in a few different colors, and even though it traps mud and dirt, you can quickly shake it off, shake it off (Taylor Swift, anyone?)



Best rug for the laundry room:

Non-Slip Washable Runner Rug

A rug like this makes a world of difference.
