The Save:
Machine-Made Runners and Remnants

About $130

This 2¼-by-8-foot rug from the Home Depot is 100 percent wool yet durable enough to withstand years of front-hall traffic.

Another way to save money on area rugs and runners is to purchase remnants of large carpet rolls, available from most carpet retailers. You can get a piece cut to perfect runner size for as little as 50 cents a square foot. That means a 3½-by-14-foot runner would cost only $25, binding not included.
