No matter the size, architectural style, or age of your home, adding a rug to the floor is an excellent way to enhance the overall look and appeal of your space. Rugs protect the floor from damage while creating a special allure and warmth that welcomes people into your home. Place a rug in the hallway, the kitchen, outside, in the living room, the hallway, or elsewhere and instantly create an environment that will make you proud.

Rugs are available from retailers small and large, though shopping with just any of these retailers isn’t the ideal way to make your purchase. When you find a retailer of your liking, you can confidently make your purchase, assured that you’ve found the largest selection, best quality, and of course, the lowest prices for the rugs of your choosing.

Rather than sulk over the many choices or shop with the first name that comes along and take such a big risk, try your hand with the top five online rug retailers below.

Wayfair is an online-only retailer that has been in business since 2002. Over the years, the company has become a well-known supplier of various home goods, including rugs.

Although website search options are limited, spending a bit of extra time browsing the site will help in finding the perfect rug. Overstock deals and a Sales section help cost-conscious shoppers find the best possible deals, although everyday prices at Wayfair are extraordinarily low. Discounts of up to 70 percent off can be yours when looking through these sections. A “Saves” feature lets you browse the site and come back to complete your purchase (or continue browsing) later without the need to start over from scratch.

The biggest disadvantage of Wayfair is the shipping times. Unless expedited shipping is used, it may take several weeks to receive your rug. Despite the long shipping times, there is a 30-day return policy.

Target sells rugs both online and in-store. Many online-only offers are exciting to find, though it is nice to have the option to shop in-store if you cannot wait for your rug to arrive. The large selection is nice, though some people say the quality of rugs here isn’t as high as rugs sold at the other retailers. Two-day shipping is a perk, and the option of free returns is also nice. Target offers regular promotional codes, coupon deals, and weekly sales always find shoppers smile.
