Best place to buy area rugs--online or otherwise?

gmnolenNovember 12, 2011

We are replacing the carpet in our master with hardwood. However, I would like an area rug so my feet will land on something soft when they hit the floor each morning. Any ideas/suggestions?

Hi, I have purchased items from homedecorators . com. They have lots of rugs. I am currently looking as well, their prices are very good. Not sure if your looking for high end. They are owned by Home depot so their customer service is good, not a fly by night operation so you dont need to worry about online ordering. Ive had good luck with potterybarn also, have 2 rugs for 6 years now and the ones from homedecorators held up for over 10 so far. Horchow and Macys have online rugs too. Sometimes your local carpet stores have rugs also, and today I was looking at pier one and homegoods. Not finding just what I want. I may just go get a precut short pile area rug until I find just what I want. Its a low cost alternative til I find something thats just right. Good luck to you.

If you do order online, make sure you're ok with shipping charges both ways, should you need to return a rug. (Some online companies do offer free shipping.) I'm out close to $60 in shipping/return costs on a small rug I recently ordered from Homedecorators.com for my bath. What they sent to me in no way resembled the rug pictured online, and I'm miffed at having to eat the costs. I'm much more cautious about online rug ordering now.

Good point, Auntjen. The JCP rugs I ordered I was able to return to the store for no charge (also had free shipping promotion), but the one from RugsUSA that shipped free to me I had to pay $30 return shipping. I got a return label and had to drop it off at a UPS store. The other ones were from a store about 45 min away, so I did have to eat some gas money doing rug trials.

Linda Dano has some nice rugs on QVC. The prices are great! I bought one for the dining area in my kitchen. It sees LOTS of action and is holding up great.

I have bought all of my handknotted orientals on ebay. Awesome deals, great quality, unlimited choice. You cannot get color accuracy but I have not been disappointed.

I've gotten them lately from Overstock and been very happy with the quality price and service.
