If you're looking to take advantage of the great deals this Memorial Day Weekend, then I'd like to point out an area you may have overlooked: your floors. Amazon just dropped fantastic discounts on area rugs to spruce up those living spaces that need it desperately — like the threadbare runner in your front hall or the stained Aubusson under your dining table.

As an interior designer and founder of Burrow & Nest Design Studio, I can tell you, that a good base is the key to creating a warm and welcoming room. The rug is your foundation for all other decor, and practical and pretty are both key elements to consider when selecting a rug. Thankfully Amazon has massively dropped its prices on this decorating necessity for Memorial Day, so you can benefit from deep discounts and quick shipping. If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

Everything shown below is in an 8 x 10 size unless specified — the most common size for a basic living room or bedroom. Make sure your rug is large enough for your space — too small and the room won't look balanced. I've selected some basic neutrals, but be bold and use color if you're so inclined! So, check out the great deals on these beauties I've curated for you below, and level up your living space stat!

Save over 60% on this Loloi sage and blush beauty

A successful collaboration between DIY experts, Chris & Julia Marcum and the award winning Loloi brand, this rug is a classic that can work in any aesthetic. Egyptian made, its vintage style blends with traditional or juxtaposes contemporary. A poly blend makes this as durable as it is attractive — and it's over 60% off!

Says one of the hundreds of happy customers, "The most beautiful rug! The colors are bold but soft at the same time! I cannot say enough about this rug. I have it in three different rooms. It’s thin which I love, as it prevents from flattening and matting. I’ve put rug pads under them for an extra cushion. Very soft to the touch."

Save nearly 80% on this Safavieh stunner

With close to 19,000 perfect reviews, Safavieh's Madison Collection Boho Chic Floral Medallion Trellis Distressed rug provides an attractive Moroccan vibe that's on-trend. Safavieh didn't miss the mark with this neutral silver-grey combo — it's just a gorgeous subtle palette that compliments everything. Made of polypropylene, customers can't say enough about how easily cleanable it is, and if you read the reviews, you can see it's been put through the ringer. This superhero of a rug can be yours for 76% off, landing at $154 for the 8 x 10.

Here's one customer that raves about the durability, "I was skeptical about buying a cream-colored rug with dogs and kids in the house but I loved the look so I went for it. First off the rug is beautiful! The colors are vibrant and the material is really great quality. Secondly and most importantly, stains come out very easily! We’ve had mud, food, puke, coffee, poop and really any horrendous spill you can think of on this rug and it cleans out so much easier than I could have ever expected..."

A transitional floral for a feminine touch — save 45%

Another epic discount, the Nourison Jubilant Transitional Floral, in the 7' x 10' size, is $85 off. Another durable do-it-all, in 100% polypropylene, this rug would look equally attractive in a home office or nursery as it would in a sophisticated living room or bedroom. I'm digging the monochromatic colorways that allow the pattern to pop.

Says a fan, "I bought this carpet for my bedroom and it is truly beautiful. The manufacturer's pictures are very accurate to its looks. It brings a bit of class to its surroundings. The pile is thick and plush and the edges are well bound. My carpet is a most perfect addition to my bedroom and the price was very reasonable."

A white fluffy rug that can go anywhere, for only $21

This soft and fluffy number by Veken is a 4 x 5, and comes in a couple of smaller sizes, as well. A shag, flokati or sheepskin is a great rug for layering. I often place them over larger area rugs to add texture and dimension. This one, made of natural wool, is non-toxic and baby-friendly, so it's perfect in a nursery setting. I love a couple on each side of the bed, so your bare feet get an extra treat when you wake up in the morning. Score this at 40% off — it's only $21! Available in other colors, including baby pink.

Says a thrilled buyer, "Oh. My. Gosh. This rug is the softest thing EVER! I bought it to go beside my bed and my dog went nuts for it! She loves the texture as she rolls around on it! My feet love it too. I plan to order two more for my living room. I am a big 'texture' and the softness of this rug is unbelievable."

Save $53: Nicole Miller Indoor/Outdoor Rug

Don't forget outside — an amazing rug can ground a deck or patio like nothing else can, making a homey atmosphere that evokes real outdoor living. This New York Patio Country Rug by Nicole Miller is a great option, and it's on sale for 33% off. Don't forget to go large here too, because bigger is always better. Design tip — at a minimum, the front feet of your furniture should sit on the rug. It makes the space appear larger. Punch up your pad with this fun chevron pattern — it comes in nine colors.

This outdoorswoman agrees: "Can’t say enough great things about this rug! This is a really tough and durable woven material and has been rained on several times and dries fairly quickly. It definitely pulls our entire outdoor space together and is very sleek."

$107 $160 at Amazon

An outdoor rug so stylish you'll want multiples: save $72

Another instant classic for your open-air oasis! An outdoor rug adds instant coziness and really creates that coveted living or dining room vibe. I love this Ourika Moroccan Geometric Textured Weave Indoor/Outdoor rug in black because it's neutral enough that you can stay subdued or add pops of color with furniture and accessories. Plus, the dark color hides dirt until you can hose it off. And right now you can save over $60 on this beauty!

One of thousands of happy reviewers says, "Exactly what I was looking for. Dries quickly, stays in place and isn't slippery when wet. Laid flat right away and no issues with rolled edges. Very happy with my purchase and have gotten a lot of compliments."
