If you're a fan of rustic interiors and natural textiles, then you might want to consider a farmhouse style rug for your home. Cozy and comforting, farmhouse rugs are a goofproof way to warm up a room — and you won't need to break your bank account.

To prove our point, we searched the market high and low and rounded up some of the chicest farmhouse rugs we could find. From checked runners to round jute carpets and beyond, here are 10 farmhouse-inspired rugs that will instantly upgrade any space in your home.

A Boucle Wool Rug

Chunky yet chic, a thick boucle woven wool rug in a neutral hue, like the Silver Braided Area Rug at RugsUSA, brings a touch of texture to a room while providing plenty of comfort.

A Rug With a Simple Geometric Pattern

A natural woven rug with a clean geometric pattern, like the Joanna Gaines for Anthropologie Olive Rug at Anthropologie makes a sophisticated statement in a space without straying from a casual aesthetic.

A Fringe-Trimmed Rug

Searching for a textured rug with a little bit of oomph? A natural flat-woven rug with a fringe trim, like the Jodi Handwoven Cotton Area Rug at Wayfair, adds a pop of personality to a subdued space.

A Simple Striped Style

If you love the look of farmhouse-inspired spaces but prefer more traditional style carpets, then softly striped rugs are the way to go. A neutral-toned rug with simple stripes, like the Alicea Blue/Cream Area Rug at Birch Lane, brings timeless rustic charm to any room.

A Checked Runner

You can always count on a bit of plaid to casually elevate a space. Turn a humdrum hallway or galley kitchen into a warm and rustic scene with the help of a black-and-white checked runner, like the Buffalo Plaid Black & White Rug at Ruggable.

A Faded Area Rug

A power-loomed area rug with a softly distressed pattern, like the Magnolia Home Ophelia Ivory Multi 5x8 Rug at Pier 1, is a clever way to bring a hint of color into a muted farmhouse-style room.

A Round Jute Rug

A circle-shaped rug composed of organic materials, like the Safavieh Handmade Natural Fiber Charlyne Casual Border Jute Rug at Overstock, adds texture to a room without deviating from a neutral color palette.

An Earth Toned Medallion Rug

A little medallion pattern goes a long way in a farmhouse-inspired space. Consider a floral medallion style in neutral hues, like the Maples Ultra Soft Signature Farmhouse Rug at Kohl's to usher some rustic vibes into a room.

A Subdued Statement Rug

Looking for a farmhouse-friendly runner with a bit more oomph? An all-natural woven runner made of interesting materials with shimmery finishes, like the Metallic Suede & Hemp Rug at Serena & Lily, turns any sliver of floor space into a stylish scene in seconds.

A Tufted Neutral Rug

Nothing makes a room feel more cozy than plush carpeting. An earth-toned hand-tufted rug, like the Jeannine Hand-Tufted Wool Gray/Ivory Area Rug at All Modern, brings a dash of depth and dimension to a room without overwhelming the space.
