One of the hardest things to find is an affordable neutral area rug that doesn’t cost you a pretty penny. When we lived in North Carolina our rental had hard woods throughout the entire house. So naturally, I bought a rug for every room like a crazy lady. One thing I did was scour the internet for the best deals I could find. So, instead of you guys scouring the internet and spending way too many hours looking at rugs, I’ve done the work for you! Check out the neutral rugs I’ve scooped up for you guys under $200!




1 // IKEA : LOHALS $139.00

Flat woven, natural jute

This rug comes in two different sizes and is quite possibly the cheapest jute rug I have yet to find! We currently have this in our formal dining room (6’7” x 9’10”) and it’s the perfect size for a dinner party of 8.


2 // Joss & Main : Whitmore Rug in Ivory $148.98

Machine woven, oriental

This rug comes in four different sizes and is currently 51% off right now! Joss & Main also gives you the option to make monthly payments if you choose to.

3 // World Market : Smoke Gray Woven Cotton Naomi Area Rug $149.99

Flat woven, Turkish style rug

This is a little sneak peak of our baby girl’s nursery. This rug is the perfect touch to tie any room together. The description says it’s grey, but it almost looks to be a faded light olive green in person which is exactly what I was looking for!


4 // Target : Diamond Area Rug Natural – Threshold $169.99

Best Neutral Rugs for Under $200

Flat woven, contemporary jute rug

If you’re looking for a jute rug that has a subtle pattern, this is perfect for your space. Target always has great deals online and in-store with their Cartwheel App. If you don’t have it you definitely need to download for your trip to Target. Everyone knows you can’t leave target without spending $100 unless you’re a magician.

5 // Target : Marlton Textured Rug – Safavieh $170.99

Best Neutral Rugs for Under $200

Tufted, 100% Wool

This rug has bold patterns for a space that doesn’t have a lot going on. I love how Rhiannon Bosse used it in her nursery design. Target currently has free shipping if your order exceeds $35.

6 // Wayfair : Aiken Ivory/Silver Area Rug $187.56

Best Neutral Rugs for Under $200

Machine woven, faded antique style

This rug has so many size options! One thing I really love about this rug is the faded antique look it would bring to a space. Wayfair also offers monthly payment options as well if you choose to go that route.

7 // Wayfair : Olga Gray Area Rug $184.80

Best Neutral Rugs for Under $200

Machine woven, Turkish style

I currently have this rug in my living room and it is so soft. I decided on this rug for our living room because I wanted something neutral and soft enough for our sweet little babe to enjoy. If you don’t know about the discounts Rugs USA offers, you have to buy on big holidays! I bought this rug during their 4th of July sale for 70% off + an additional 30% at checkout. Talk about a steal!


8 // Wayfair : Highwood Jute Hand-Braided Natural Area Rug $79.00

round jute rug under 200 dollars

Flat woven, natural jute

If you’re looking for an eclectic style jute rug this one is right up your alley.


9 // Lorena Canals : Stripes Glacier – Grey $200.00

Best Neutral Rugs for Under $200

Hand woven, 100% cotton

This rug is perfect for high traffic areas including:  kitchen’s or even nursery’s. Why? This rug is 100% machine washable! How awesome is that? I honestly wish every rug I owned was machine washable it would just make life so much easier.
