How to Find the Best Large Area Rug

November 5th, 2010

large-area-rug.jpgYou have taken the measurements of the space that you have in the room, you have made your mind up on color and now all you need to do is to get your hands on the perfect large area rug to finish the room that still seems incomplete without the last finishing touch. However, it can be hard to know where to start looking for rugs that will work with your large area, especially if you are doing so on a budget. The Internet has proved to be a great tool for buying larger items such as this but can be useless for those without a lot of money to spend as shipping costs on heavier items can prove to be bank breaking!

Having said that, the Internet can put you in the right direction of some great deals and sales that certain stores may be offering, some of which will happily deliver to your home. Others will allow you to pick up the rugs yourself if you are close enough to the store to make this a practical option. Many online stores will offer lesser priced shipping to make life much easier and if you have the chance to take full advantage of these when you are buying a large area rug, it is a good idea to do so.

If online buying is not really your thing then you could always take a look into the home décor stores in your local area where you can usually get your hands on a large area rug at a good price without the expensive shipping or delivery costs. The main disadvantage with this method is that you can sometimes be limited to certain styles, sizes, and colors as most stores will only have a small selection in stock. This can be a drawback but at the same time will allow you to actually see the rug and feel it to ensure that it is exactly what you will want for your room. Buying online can make this difficult as you can never really ascertain the exact colors, texture, and overall quality of the rug from a photo or electronic image.

Garage sales in your area are one of the best places to pick up an inexpensive large area rug but just like buying these in a store, you will probably be very limited on choices. Despite this, you can usually get the things that you need to complete your home décor for a fraction of the price that you would normally pay brand new. If you are buying a large area rug for the kids’ play room or for the garage, second hand can be a better option.

There are plenty of places from which you can get your hands on a large area rug for a good price and the important thing to remember is not to just buy the first thing you see if it does not match your room perfectly. In many cases you can get the same kind of rug for a better deal elsewhere!
