A few weeks ago, I stumbled upon this article about how to save on your house, and while I loved it, I’ve never actually made a habit of doing it myself.
And while I think that it’s really important to get involved in the home improvement business, I’m sure there are other reasons why you might want to ditch the house and just buy a cheaper rug instead.
Read on to find out how.1.
It costs less than a couch cushion.
In fact, the most expensive rug on sale today is the $1,500 $200 Housecrest ComfortRug, which is available in two sizes, and comes with a cushion to help keep your feet from getting cold, and a removable bottom so you can clean it whenever you want.
The cushion costs around $400, and the cushions are made from polyester, which you can get for less on Amazon.2.
You can save on electricity.
The average household uses around 30% of its energy from the electricity it consumes, so if you’re looking for a budget rug to replace that electricity, consider the $15 per square foot savings on the $200 ComfortRugs.
It’s also worth noting that there are plenty of other great rug choices out there.3.
You don’t have to spend all that much on carpet.
The $1.99 ComfortRuches are about half the price of the $300 housecrests, and if you want something with a lot more options, look for the $3.99 Floor-Rug from Home Depot.
They come in a variety of sizes and colors, so they’re great for anyone looking for something that can hold up to a lot of work.4.
You have the option to purchase additional materials.
The ComfortRuggles come with a carpeting-making kit, which means you can use your existing rug for other projects as well.
For example, you can make a rug that will keep your house looking great, or if you’d rather add a bit of flair to your new house, you could make a bed or couch that you can sell to decorate your living space.5.
You’re not limited to one rug.
If you’re just looking to save money, you’re also in luck.
There are so many options out there, so you’ll be able to find a rug to suit your needs.
