Hard truth: You can buy all the chic living room seating, sleek bedding and fancy drapes you want, but trust us—*nothing* is going to revamp your home quite like a new area rug. And now's your chance to grab one at a serious discount (we're talking up to 82 percent off), because they're on sale for less than 24 hours for the Wayfair Way Day sale, which ends at midnight tonight, Oct. 26. Plus, you'll get free shipping to boot.

There's a mega deal on the versatile Chris Loves Julia x Loloi Humphrey rug (was from $89, now from $48) that will last as long as your favorite plaid button-down (one reviewer confirms), and up to a 79 percent discount on the Omar rug from Foundstone (was from $90, now from $32), which is handwoven to minimalist perfection. Meanwhile, fans of the farmhouse-chic aesthetic will want to hop on the markdown on Magnolia Home's Millie rug (was from $79, now from $35) once they hear how good the over-dyed effect looks in person. And budget seekers most definitely can't go wrong with AllModern's Walker rug (was from $88, now $76).

Best Overall

1. Kelly Clarkson Home Hector Area Rug

Kelly Clarkson Home

This hand-picked number is from Kelly Clarkson’s home line. Not only does it feature a French country design—with three color options that will match perfectly with any decor—but because it's a performance rug and crafted with durable polypropylene fibers, you can bet it's as spill-, stain- and fade-resistant as can be. What beats that is that it has a medium 0.31-inch pile height that offers some cozy padding underfoot (while still being super easy to clean). Through tonight, Oct. 26, it's also up to 80 percent off.

Best Bohemian Area Rug

2. Mistana Kendall Area Rug


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 ($14). And, yes, it should feel good with every step, according to the manufacturer. But does it walk the walk? We sure think so after reading one buyer's review: "This rug is beautiful and comfortable on bare feet [and] my dogs love laying on it." Say no more.

Best Rustic Area Rug

3. Joss & Main Skye Area Rug

Joss & Main

With a faded rustic look and a center medallion and border design, this polyester area rug will instantly add elegance to any room. The bonus is the low pile, which the company claims will reduce 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!" It'll become your favorite conversation piece for sure, so all there's left to do is find the best size for your space, which is easy enough.

Best Retro Area Rug

4. AllModern Walker Area Rug


Behold, one of the most beautiful minimalist area rugs we've ever seen. No, seriously, even if you scoop up the cool checkered pattern in the brightest color, it will effortlessly blend right into your space. More importantly, while the stain-resistant and thick polypropylene pick typically costs a pretty penny, it's far more affordable during this sale. So if there's any time to buy this shaggy soft rug with thick cushioning that makes it super easy to walk on, it's now. Not to mention, buyers swear it doesn't shed.

Best Modern Area Rug

5. AllModern Tillie Area Rug


Hand-tufted in India using hand shearing and carving techniques, this monochromatic textured wool rug is for a person who loves the little details. Its sleek and modern design isn't the only thing that counts here, but also the high- and low-tufted pile that feels as soft as it looks, according to reviewers. So you probably won't even mind that it sheds a bit because as one buyer says "you can tell there is a lot to it (literally) and that it isn't likely to wear out quickly."

Most Transitional Area Rug

6. Foundstone Omar Area Rug


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 and a tied tassel fringe that elevates everything around it. If you're nervous about its neutral gray hue, don't be; caring for it will be a piece of cake with a vacuum, so it can continue dressing your living room or bedroom up for longer than you think.

Best Contemporary Area Rug

7. AllModern Davey Area Rug


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 very cozy, per buyers) will. Or maybe the fact that it's handmade using a weaving technique, meaning each of them is unique in one way or another, will make you run to buy it while it's just under $50. Better yet, one buyer says it took no time to flatten out from the packaging if you're in a hurry to revamp your space.

Best Vintage-Style Area Rug

8. Magnolia Home x Joanna Gaines x Loloi Millie Area Rug

Magnolia Home By Joanna Gaines X Loloi Millie

Whether your home gives vintage or not, this rug is made of polyester, which can take everyday wear and tear like a pro, so it will hold up in high-traffic areas from the front door to the kitchen. However, buyers are most 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!" A rug that keeps on giving? Sign us up!

Most Traditional Area Rug

9. Chris Loves Julia x Loloi Hurley Area Rug

Chris Loves Julia x Loloi

Yet another rug that's nailing 2023's design trends? This number from the Chris Loves Julia x Loloi line. 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. Perfect for fall and beyond.
