Whether you’re looking for a statement rug to bring extra warmth to a room or a utilitarian rug like a hallway runner, Lowe’s is your go-to for finding rugs for sale that are both stylish and functional. From area rugs and runner rugs to kitchen mats and inexpensive rugs ideal for a rental unit, our selection of rugs, floor mats, runners and pads is sure to have options to suit your space. We carry a variety of modern rugs in different styles and brands, including Allen + Roth, Surya, Safavieh, Mohawk and more.
Before buying a new rug or indoor mat, you’ll want to measure your room to make sure you choose the right size. There are different viewpoints on how to choose the best rug size for your space, but the general rule is to measure the seating area of a room and select a rug closest to those measurements, allowing all of your furniture’s legs to rest on the rug. Generally, 8 x 10 rugs are the most popular choice for bedrooms, but you may need to size up to a 9 x 12 rug or down to a 5 x 8 rug depending on your bedroom’s layout.
It’s also important to think about texture when choosing a rug. For high-traffic areas, low-pile wool rugs are better to use than plush rugs that easily collect dirt. Need kids rugs or a rubber mat for a bedroom or playroom? Choose low-pile options in darker shades, like a black rug or dark blue rug, so spills and other accidents are less noticeable and easier to clean. While rug shopping, don’t forget rug pads. Rug pads keep rugs from slipping, provide extra cushion and can even extend the life of your rug by reducing floor friction.
Lowe’s also offers a variety of specialty rugs and scatter rugs. If you need something for outdoors, shop our selection of welcome mats to greet guests with style. For indoors, explore our anti-fatigue mats for use in the kitchen or garage. These thick shock absorbers ease the stress of standing on hard surfaces for long periods of time.
Because rugs can be a big investment, you’ll want to make sure you know how to properly clean and maintain your purchase. Leave antique and Persian rugs with professionals for cleaning, but you can clean other rugs at home with rug shampoo, a soft-bristle brush and a wet/dry vacuum.
You should first vacuum the rug on both sides, removing dirt and pet hair. Then you can use mild dish detergent or rug shampoo and warm water for a deeper clean. After the cleaner sits on the rug for a few minutes, rinse it off with a hose and allow it to dry. To keep your rug in the best condition, only deep clean it when necessary.
