I decided I wanted something roughly 10x12 feet so that it would fit under the bed and have a nice overhang on either side. There was just one problem. Area rugs this large are not cheap! And not to sound like a broken record, but when furnishing a temporary space...
So when walking through Home Depot, I spotted a bin of 6x9' shag area rugs for $29.99 each. They weren't the highest of quality, but really, who could pass up such a deal?
So we bought two, brought them home and duct taped them together!
You can hardly even see the seam in the middle, since it's basically hidden underneath the bed.
So for $60, we have a 9x12' area rug that does a great job of keeping my toes nice & toasty in the morning.
A simple solution to what could have been an expensive problem.
