You won’t have to compromise on style to stay on budget with these runners. Here are 18 (gorgeous!) cheap runner rugs to choose from that are all less than $30!
I think rugs are a great way to not only bring style and pattern to a space, but to also cozy up a room. Whether you’re layering a rug on top of hardwood floors or a solid carpeted room, it instantly makes it feel a little more like home to me.
The problem, as many of you may well know is that rugs can be expensive. Sure, we all expect larger area rugs to be more expensive, but when I went looking for a runner rug or two to go in my kitchen and hallway, I was baffled by how expensive some of them were. The thing with runner rugs is that they are often placed in high traffic areas – like my kitchen and hallway I just mentioned. And so, they often get dirty faster than larger area rugs. Who wants to spend $100 or more on a rug that is going to see that much foot traffic? Not me!
Therefore, I made it my personal mission to find affordable runner rugs.
I’ve gathered eighteen runners in all styles and colors and they are all under $30.
Full disclaimer now, each of these was $30 or less at the time of me writing this post. Don’t go blaming me if they’ve increased by $5 or $10. While I wish I could control the pricing of such items, I am but a girl with absolutely zero connections to that industry. 😂 I will try to update this post as needed to reflect new affordable rugs.

Cheap Hallway Runners
Many of these come in multiple different colors, so if you like the style, but not the color, click over and see what else they have. If you’re in the market for an area rug for your living room or even kitchen / dining area, many also come in larger sizes as well and are still affordable.
Geometric Runner Rug
This is one of my faves! It has a classic greek key feel. It also comes in a black background / cream design and I adore it.
Detailed Runner Rug
This one still has neutral colors, but a more detailed pattern – could hide stains better if that became an issue!
Grey Toned Runner Rugs
Vintage Style Oriental Rug
If you like your rugs to have a vintage look to them, here’s a great option for $26 – also available in other colors and sizes.
Persian Gray Rug
At $22, this is practically a steal! I’m usually not a gray decor person, but this one has enough detail in the pattern that I really like it.
Fun Print Runners
Leopard Print Rug
At less than $20, I snatched one of these up for my diy closet makeover as fast as I could!!
Lemon Print Rug
Obviously, this one is more catered to a kitchen. I love how the lemons pop against that black though.

Navy and Ivory Runner
I bought this runner for our guest bedroom. It’s simple, but classic pattern works well in there and it’s thin enough that I can throw it in the washer.
Yellow and Ivory Runner
Same classic pattern, but with a punch of color. I think this would be fun in a kids room! Both of these come in multiple other colors and sizes.
Bold Colorful Runner Rugs
Saturated Green Rug
I love this green rug – such a beautiful color. Not sure I’d like it in a big area rug, but I love it for a runner. More saturated colors available too.
Purple Trellis Rug
If you’re a purple fan, this less than $25 beauty is sure to make a statement in a room!

Moroccan Medallion Rug
Lots of great color, but also a good bit of “blank space” to keep it calm and bring the focus to those medallions.
Colorful Boho Rug
No color is off limits with this one! Lots of pretty colors and details to work with.
Touch of Color Runners
Grey with a Touch of Pink
A good mostly neutral rug, but when you look closely, there are little touches of pink there.
Turquoise and Cream Rug
If you want just a bit of color, this one has a light touch of turquoise in it.
Distressed Vintage Style Rugs
Blue and Ivory Vintage Style Rug
Classic blue and ivory colors, but with a washed out vintage feel.

I am a sucker for a bold red and this rug is no exception! Talk about bringing drama to a space!
Traditional Colors and Patterns

Classic navy can go with just about anything and it will never fail you! This one is just $25 too!

The ” 18 Cheap Runner Rugs ” drew me attention and I was hopeful for an economical resolution to my issue. After clicking on every link I was EXTREMELY disappointed. After all, in the current status of economic times for many of us, we all are seeking a way to stretch our paychecks much further than possible ! Every option listed here is much higher than the $ 20 to $ 30 that I had expected. Maybe it’s time to update the information …
