Cheap berber style rug

Splurge Vs Save time.  I do love to find a cheaper alternative of high end home accessories.

We’re looking for rugs for the hallway (to try and hide the floor) and every time I find something I like, the price tag makes me pass out!  The hall is pretty long and steps down, so we would need 2 rugs.  We would also potentially need 1 for the front door too.

Knowing how much I like to change up my house style, I don’t want to spend a small fortune and be committed for years to come.  Also having had rugs in high traffic areas before, they do wear quickly, so it’s not worth going crazy.

Out hallway is ‘industrious chic’.  I’ve just made that up!  Basically I like the look of industrial, but I find it hard to stick 100% to the style and subconsciously end up adding a few softer touches.

Berber Rug Splurge

I adore my monthly 3 pack of homes magazines from Tesco (guilt pleasure) and in this months Homes & Gardens, I took great interest in their rug section and this Gandia Blasco Rug from Heal’s.  It’ll set you back £935.  Unless I win the lotto, that rug will not be crossing our threshold!

Berber Rug Save

I stumbled upon this look a likey ‘moon geometric’ rug from the very funky Urban Outfitters.  The resemblance is quite striking and at a more friendly £35, this rug may very well get carried over said threshold in my loving arms!  Needless to say the saving is jaw dropping!

Which do you prefer this week?

  1. I struggle with rugs – MOH a likes the traditionally patterned ones, where if I have to have one I’d go for something plainer and more modern. I wouldn’t want to spend £900 on one though! #homecorner

  2. Oh We do love a bargain. I love them both but for £35 I’d go with that one and it means we can change the room up after a few months and not feel guilty! #homecorner

  3. Hee hee I like your term ‘industrious chic’. Definitely prefer the splurge rug as it looks more fluffy, and I think Urban Outfitters white rug would need a lot more cleaning. Although with a price tag nearing £1000, it had better be soft and fluffy under your feet!
