Another key designer tip: Make sure your rug is the proper size 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 below, 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. (Looking for a couch or armchair to go with that rug? We've got the scoop on all of Wayfair's Way Day deals.)

An oriental style rug is timeless, and this one from the star herself shines bright in grays and creams. A medallion look creates a centered focal point, balancing the pattern with neutral tones. Stain resistance and durability make this a no-brainer — not to mention that it's 65% off.
