Designer tip: Make sure your rug is large enough for the room. Furniture's front feet should be on the rug, at minimum, in living areas. It should protrude from beneath your bed on three sides in bedrooms. For most rooms, an 8' x 10' will do, so I've priced that size here, unless otherwise specified. But sizes and styles abound, so there's something for every room in the house. Don't wait until the rug is swept out from under you— take advantage of these Way Day discounts now. Let the thrill of the hunt begin. (Looking for more options? You can see all of Wayfair's Way Day rug deals here.)

The vibrant colors — cream, orange and blue — in this rug will wow you and your guests, lending a cheerful air to any room in the house. (And wait until you tell them it was over 70% off!) It's inspired by iconic Turkish patterns and made of durable poly for top performance.

It's rare when you can lay a creamy white rug on your floor and live worry-free.

The tassel fringe provides a bespoke look, while the diamond cut pattern provides texture and interest.

Not only can you save nearly 60% on this popular style from Loloi, in collaboration with the lauded Joanna Gaines, but you can wash it too! Power-loomed from recycled plastic into soft, durable polyester with a thicker pile than most washable rugs, this baby can stand the test of time. Larger sizes require a commercial washer, but you can clean smaller ones at home.

I absolutely adore this Boho-inspired gem that's equally sharp in modern, contemporary or farmhouse aesthetics. The black/ivory colorway (shown here) is a personal favorite, but it also comes in gray, beige and blue hues. Buy now and you'll save nearly 50%.

I can't get enough of this unique oval-shaped rug. Smaller in scale at 5'3" x 8', it's suitable for an entry hall, beneath a desk in a small office, or inside your walk-in closet. The neutral color palette and classic oriental style work with most aesthetics.
