If, like us, you’ve ever opened your browser and searched for “affordable rugs”, you’ll know that they’re bloody hard to find. We’re not asking for much, just something that feels delightful under foot, wouldn’t look out of place in Soho House and doesn’t come with a price tag similar to a small mortgage.
So, whether it’s a fluffy Berber, a jazzy flatweave or a hard-wearing jute you’re after, we’ve rounded up the under-£250 rugs we love. We’re not saying £250 is cheap, but when it comes to something you’re going to have in your home for a long time and can instantly transform a room, it’s a worth spending a little extra if budget allows.
