How to Be Sure You’ll Love a Large Area Rug

Taste is a funny thing. We all have different likes and dislikes when it comes to home decor, and boy are we glad. Otherwise, all of our houses would look the same, and so would our large area rug. How boring, right? Luckily for the world, we all have our own sense of style when we decorate our homes.

With that in mind, you might be a bit overwhelmed with all of the options you have when selecting a designer area rug. Even if you have a particular style or color palette in mind, you have many options. To help you narrow down your selection, Alyshaan Fine Rugs offers a few services to help you make the best choice for your home, so you love how the one you finally choose looks on your floor.

If you have a specific room in mind that you want a large area rug in, we can show you what it would look like with several different rugs without ever having to bring a rug to your home. We call it Virtual In-Home Viewing, and all we need from you is a good photo of the room you want to adorn with an area rug. The photo needs to include the floor space where the rug will go. Our rug experts can even come to your new home to take photos, even if the flooring is still a work in progress.

Once we have the room photos, we digitally insert the rugs you are considering into the image. You can instantly see how well (or not) the rug coordinates with your paint choices and furniture in that space. What kind of impact does the rug have on the overall look of the room? This simple viewing method helps you narrow down your selection considerably. You don’t have to guess what will look good when you can see it digitally first. If you like, we can also make suggestions for rug styles and sizes based on the photos you bring in — our rug experts have experience helping customers find the right look for their homes!

We also offer in-home viewings where we bring the rugs to your home and show them at no additional cost. Our design consultation services may also be useful to you. We’re happy to help you find the right size, style and color! Aside from recommending the best rugs, we can also help you determine which areas of your home should be a higher priority for rug placement than others, such as high traffic areas or rooms that just need that extra something to tie it together.

Large area rugs can last for generations when taken care of properly, so picking a timeless piece may be important to you as well. If you want to have this rug in your home for the foreseeable future, stay away from designs that will look dated in a decade. Unless you think you’ll always love that design!
