Cheap 5×7 Area rugs are essential if you have kids, pets, or a really tight budget. I found amazing rugs at a great price!
Before the pandemic hit we finished 98% of our unfinished basement. Only the new spare room remained unfinished needing closet doors and trim done.
I wasn’t going to let that 2% prevent me from moving into my new family room. I’ve been dreaming of this room and planning for it for 15 years!
Unfortunately, I’m not able to shop like I normally would for furniture and other home Decor items. Luckily I have been collecting (my husband calls and hoarding) pieces over the last few (15) years to decorate this space. Between those pieces and my inventory, I could get the bones of the basement in place so we could use it.
Except for an area rug. I don’t deal in vintage area rugs because there is so much to know about those lovely pieces and I don’t have the expertise. I also wouldn’t want to put one of those expensive pieces in my family room because I never want my house to be a museum. I want kids to be able to play without worrying about damaging the rugs and I don’t want that stress for me either.

So I had to find a new cheap area rug. And because the room is so large I wanted two 5 x 7 rugs to create two separate areas one for the movie/TV area and one for my reading/games area.
I checked the usual sources Home Depot, Amazon, and Target and the cheapest I could find that I liked were $100. For two I needed $200 was out of my budget for now but I still needed the rugs. The room was like an echo chamber without something to absorb the sound.
After scouring the Internet looking for something with the style I want it at a price I could afford I was coming up empty. That’s when I happened on rugs.com. I was able to get two beautiful, high style 5 x 7 area rugs for $39 & $49. When I looked in my cart I was stunned to see they gave me a 10% discount for ordering two rugs. Total for both $85.04 (sales tax pushed it up over $80) with FREE shipping.
I couldn’t believe it!
Rugs.com of course, has a range of prices and their larger rugs cost more (not much more), but 5 x 7 is what I wanted. Their flash deals can go as low as $19 for an area rug.
I ordered two navy blue area rugs and they shipped right away. They arrived in three days, tightly rolled, and wrapped in plastic.
I was worried that they would feel really cheap because they were really cheap, but nope.
They are the same quality as a living room rug a 5 x 7 I purchased at Target several months ago.
