What You Need to Know….. to find the perfect rug.
Thank you for considering United Textiles for your area rug purchase! With hundreds of rugs in stock, we are confident we can find the rug that’s perfect for your room. Before you come into our showroom, there are a few things you need to know.
To ensure a great, confusion-free rug-shopping experience:
Take actual measurements of the space you want the rug to cover.
If the rug is for a bedroom, playroom or a family room, do you want the rug underneath the furniture, or in an area between the furniture pieces? Take a snapshot of the room, if you like, and bring it with you, along with your measurements. Our experienced associates can help you determine the best size and placement of a rug, based on the style and arrangement of your furniture.
If the rug is intended for a dining room, kitchen eating area or a desk, remember to pull out the chairs before measuring. You don’t want to pull out your chair to seat a guest, only to discover that the front legs are on your rug—but the rear legs are NOT. Seat yourself in a chair; leave the chair in position, then pull out a chair on the opposite side of the table an equal distance. Your measurements should span from the back chair legs on one side of the table to the back chair legs on the opposite side, allowing a few inches for taller/larger guests.
Note the size and position of any central heating/air vents or air returns. While vents can be covered by a rug in a pinch, air returns should never be blocked by floor covering or furniture.
Bring a color sample to the showroom with you! Paint chips, fabric swatches, curtain panels, throw pillows, framed art – items with the color(s) you want to coordinate with your rug. Colors under various lighting can be vastly different. Having the color with you allows you to compare the colors directly to the rug, eliminating surprise color changes in your home or office.
Following these simple tips can help our staff make your experience pleasant and guarantee your satisfaction with your new area rug. Happy Shopping!
