I get asked about our sources for area rugs in our home a LOT. It seems like everyone’s searching for stylish, durable, and affordable area rugs to go over their hardwood floors. I’m excited to share my secret rug source with you guys today! I have found my BEST and most affordable area rugs on eBay! This is a sponsored post written on behalf of eBay, but I have been buying rugs from eBay for years.
My favorite source to buy area rugs online:
When it comes to online shopping, did you know that eBay works directly with companies like Overstock.com to get their inventory? You simply choose “Buy It Now” to buy an item directly from that manufacturer and voila it is shipped, and possibly even for FREE!
This is how I shop for area rugs online:
- Search online for a style/brand of rug I want to purchase
- Find that rug on a retailer’s website
- Log onto eBay and search for that exact rug on their website
- Compare prices between websites
- I have found eBay’s prices to be consistently lower for the SAME rug (brand new) found elsewhere
Great source for runners:
Some of my favorite rugs I bought from eBay are my hallway runners. We bought them over three year ago, and they’ve held up really well. Our hallways are used as a running track for our two toddlers and our dog daily – so they get their fair share of use! You would think I paid a LOT more for them, but they were a huge bargain.

Variety of rug styles:
The fun thing about eBay is that they’re not limited to one decor style. They have a ton of different styles to choose from, and rugs for all budgets as well.
We recently bought my daughter’s rug for under her new “big girl bed” on eBay, and it was a great deal!
Since my son and daughter are now sharing a room, I wanted them to have rugs that worked together, but didn’t match. I chose a geometric pattern in gray for under my son’s bed – there’s lots of options just like this on eBay as well:
There’s options like (family friendly & dirt hiding) shag rugs like the one we have in our family room:
And also great options for vintage inspired rugs that won’t break your budget like this one we have under our bed in our master bedroom:
Selection of durable indoor/outdoor rugs:
They also have a big selection of indoor/outdoor rugs on their site – and this one is found on eBay as well! It’s held up really well on our porch:
Quality rugs that have style
We spend a lot of time on the floor with a two-year-old, four-year-old, and a senior dog. And once the baby comes in June, we’ll be spending that much more time on our rugs! I truly believe you don’t have to spend a fortune on area rugs to add beautiful style to your home, and I’m glad to share my eBay shopping source as a place to buy affordable area rugs online with all of you!
Did you know that eBay has over 900,000 rugs in stock? And over 800,000 of them (90%) ship for free? Make sure you check out eBay’s selection the next time you’re shopping for an area rug!
