Family Friendly Area Rugs - Low to High

Finding family friendly area rugs can be a challenge.  A few things to keep in mind when shopping for area rugs is material, durability, and color.  Do you have pets? Do you have kids? Do you host a lot? Do you take your shoes off when you come into your home or leave them on? Those are a few of the questions we ask our clients when searching for a family room area rug.  Also, don’t forget a rug pad! That’s one of the most common mistakes that people make, is forgetting to order a high quality rug pad. Here’s a link to our favorite rug pad. We’ve compiled a list of our top 20 family friendly area rugs (at all price points).  


Here are some family friendly area rugs we’ve put in previous projects for inspiration:

Low/High Dining Room Design

We are sharing two dining rooms, one that is at a higher price point, and the other at a lower price point. When designing a room, we encourage our clients to invest in anchor pieces (furniture, rugs, lighting, and artwork), and buy more affordable accessories. Here are the two designs we’ve created that look eerily similar, but crazy price differences!

Low/High Living Room Design

Let’s face it, we all can’t afford a brand new living room with high-end pieces, but we can mix, match, and prioritize pieces.  Sometimes, you just want to “get the look” for a season, and save for high quality pieces. If you’re on a budget, we recommend investing in anchor pieces (sofa, rug, accent chairs, coffee table, and lighting) as you can.  Here’s an example of a high and low living room design, so you can get the look!

LOW:  1 2  /  3  /  4  /  5  /  6  /  7  /  8  /  9  /  10  /  11  /  12  /  13  /  14
