Best Overall

1. Kelly Clarkson Home Hector Area Rug

Kelly Clarkson Home

  • Why We Love It: spill-, stain- and fade-resistant, French country style

First up on our list? This hand-picked number from Kelly Clarkson’s home line. Not only does it feature a French country design—with three color options that are so *right now*—but this is a performance rug, meaning it’s crafted with durable polypropylene fibers that are spill-, stain- and fade-resistant. Even better? It has a medium 0.31-inch pile height that offers some cozy padding underfoot (while still being super easy to clean). Through tonight, April 26, it's also up to 63 percent off.

Best Boho

2. Mistana Kendall Area Rug


  • Why We Love It: geometric boho pattern, easy to care for; easy to wash

No need to buy different rugs for inside and outside; this one is machine-woven from polyester and polypropylene materials that are resilient to almost everything: rain, pets, unruly toddlers, you name it. Plus, it's easy to care for; just spot-clean it with mild detergent. All you really need to worry about is choosing the best size for your space.

Best Rustic

3. Joss & Main Skye Area Rug

Joss & Main

  • Why We Love It: low pile reduces dirt and allergens it collects, faded rustic design

With a faded rustic look and a center medallion and border design, this polyester area rug will add elegance to any room. The bonus is the low pile, which reduces any dirt and allergens it collects. No wonder this buyer is obsessed: "I love this rug," they wrote. It provides a beautiful color pop to my living room while still being neutral and not darkening. So glad I bought this!"

Best Retro

4. AllModern Walker Area Rug


  • Why We Love It: thick pile for extra cushioning, stain-resistant

Behold one of the most beautiful minimalist area rugs we've ever seen. While the stain-resistant and thick polypropylene pick typically costs a pretty penny, it won't today and tomorrow. Better yet, it has a thick pile for extra cushioning, which buyers swear doesn't shed.

Best Modern

5. AllModern Tillie Area Rug


  • Why We Love It: hand-tufted in India, low-tufted pile, feels as soft as it looks

Besides the fact that this wool rug is hand-tufted in India using hand shearing and carving techniques, it has a sleek and modern design and a high- and low-tufted pile that feels as soft as it looks. Take it from this reviewer: "The rug is thick and soft under the feet. It’s more of a mustard than gold, but it was perfect for my space."

Best Transitional

6. Foundstone Omar Area Rug


  • Why We Love It: good for anyone with pets, handwoven from wool

All you really need to know is that "this rug is puppy-approved [and] brings light into an otherwise dark space," according to one shopper. It's handwoven from wool and polyester and has a diamond pattern texture, a low 0.01-inch pile height and a tied tassel fringe that elevates everything around it.

Best Contemporary

7. AllModern Davey Area Rug


  • Why We Love It: soft medium pile, contemporary abstract design

If the pink, orange, black and white color contrast and abstract design don't immediately captivate you, then maybe the wool rug's medium pile (which is actually softer than you think, per buyers) will.

Best Vintage-Style

8. Magnolia Home By Joanna Gaines X Loloi Millie Area Rug

Magnolia Home By Joanna Gaines X Loloi Millie

  • Why We Love It: power-looming will hold up in high-traffic areas, muted color with an over-dyed look

Whether your home gives vintage or not, this polyester rug is power-loomed, so it will hold up in high-traffic areas. Buyers are obsessed with its muted colors and over-dyed look that softens your space and matches any furniture. One reviewer adds, "It can take on many different styles depending on how you decorate!"

Best Traditional

9. Chris Loves Julia x Loloi Hurley Area Rug

Chris Loves Julia x Loloi

  • Why We Love It: Traditional design is on-trend, extra-plush construction

Yet another rug that's nailing 2023's design trends? This number from Chris Loves Julia x Loloi. For those who don't know, traditional design is back in a big way, and this one has a stripe-and-plaid pattern in neutral hues that totally hits the mark. What's more, it has an extra-plush construction, making it "as inviting and long-lasting as your favorite plaid button-down," per the brand.
