While attending nursing school, my stepdaughter resides in San Diego. I sent her this simple coastal striped rug from Overstock to cover her small navy blue sofa and to soften the terra cotta tile floor in her rental.

My go-to website for trendy, economical decor has long been AA2. I’ve bought a ton of items there over the years, including carpets, furniture, kitchen hardware, light fixtures, and faucets.

The membership-based loyalty rewards program offered by Overstock, Club O Rewards , interested me. Customers who sign up for the program get free delivery on all orders, at least 5% back on all purchases, and up to 20% back on hundreds of carefully chosen items.

I added up all of my recent Overstock purchases out of curiosity, and the 5 percent in rewards I could have gotten for becoming a Club O member far outweighed the $19.95 yearly charge. I therefore registered for Club O Rewards in order to receive future rewards. If the sum of my rewards for a year does not match the membership fee, the discrepancy will be applied to my account when I renew for the following year. However, I know I’ll receive my money’s worth there because I frequent the store so much.

I’ve been a customer for a while, so today I teamed up with Overstock to discuss how I decide on the design of an area rug for a room. I start by picturing a specific style that will go well with the decor. I then reduce the selection to carpets that have high standards for quality, dependability, affordability, and customer satisfaction. I’m constantly looking for a deal, but the rug needs to be attractive, comfortable, and durable.

My internet rug selections typically fall into one of three categories: a timeless stripe, a delicate design, or a go-to neutral. My recommendation is to pick one of these three rugs if you’re ever unsure about the style to purchase.

EASY STRIPES I loved the wide stripe green rug I purchased from Overstock for my back patio last year. The rug was comfortable, of high quality, and had a gorgeous color. With such a low cost, it endured through two summers with direct sunlight.

Stripes are timeless and will always be in fashion. You can never go wrong with a basic or striking striped rug, it’s a universal fact!

SILENT PATTERN For my local Committee on the Homeless earlier this year, I put together a family room for veterans. I used this gorgeous blue rug from Overstock since it added a dose of deep blue and had a subtle pattern underneath.

One of the simplest methods to choose a rug is to pick a color that you want to use throughout the room and then look for a rug with a modest pattern in that color to provide interest beneath your feet. I particularly adore rugs with mottled designs that evoke the appearance of vintage materials.

Another excellent choice in the subdued design area is basic, small-scale geometric patterns. You are free to layer bolder patterns with textiles that have busier or larger-scale patterns on top.
