Ask anyone who knows a thing or two about interior design: the right rug can completely change a room by tying together and anchoring the different elements of furniture, lighting, and art. Whether it’s the living room, dining room, or entryway, the style and color of the rug that you choose will depend on many factors such as personal taste, traffic, color scheme, and, of course, budget.

Here, we will explain how rug prices are determined so that you can make an informed decision on your next rug purchase, whether you're looking for a rare and expensive rug or something budget-friendly and durable to brighten up your den.
