10 Affordable Summer Renovation Projects

Add a stylish and budget-friendly rug.

A rug can help tie all your decorative elements together to create a cohesive style without spending a lot of money. Plus, you can add a rug just about anywhere even if you have carpeting or beautiful wood floors.

Erica Reiner, owner and principal designer of Eco Method Interiors, a Los Angeles-based design and consulting firm that focuses on eco-friendly materials, says “an area rug anchors the room, defines the space and gives a good starting point to pull colors from.”

Though rugs can be expensive, you can find a wide selection of styles and sizes at moderate prices at discount retailers like HomeGoods or online at sites. Since prices range based on brand, style and size, refine your search based on your budget.
