One can scarcely doubt the remarkable role that the right large rug can play in not only enhancing, but also shaping and defining the character of an interior space.
However, the very fact that a large rug can be such a powerful statement piece is also why any resident in the market for one will wish to make only the wisest decision at the first attempt. This, in turn, necessitates careful consideration of important aspects including the rug’s colour, pattern, and prospective location in the home.
Another factor that may be hardly any less crucial than the aforementioned, however, is where you might obtain your next large rug from. Here, then, are some of the obvious and less-often-thought-about sources, and your potential reasons for considering them.
A brick-and-mortar store
There is no shortage of ‘high street’ stores, including both independent and chain outlets, that would be happy to furnish you with a large rug. Such retailers exist in practically every British town and city.
However, while these physical stores do provide the experience of being able to witness rugs ‘in the flesh’ as you shop, they are not necessarily the best locations to look for a large rug if choice and customisation are key priorities for you.
In terms of taking home an item ‘on the day’ from this type of outlet, you are effectively restricted to whatever they may happen to have in stock at the time of your visit.
A flea market or auction
In these cash-conscious times, it is very understandable why one may look to an auction or flea market in search of a good-value rug. These can certainly be interesting places to discover the kind of rug that you may have never contemplated buying prior to setting your eyes upon it.
However, it is this very unpredictability and idiosyncrasy of the flea market or auction setting that might also be your principal reason for rejecting it as somewhere to purchase your next rug.
When you know that your space necessitates a certain style and size of rug, a lack of guarantees about being able to obtain the rug that would best suit the given room may make an auction or flea market seem like a less-than-ideal port of call.
An online retailer
When it comes to convenience, choice and flexibility, online stores are likely to rank higher for you than either of the previously mentioned options.
However, some of these purported benefits of retailers on the web can turn out to be illusionary, especially when the store in question is simply the online offshoot of a brand that traditionally operates on the high street.
Such businesses might therefore bring many of the same restrictions and drawbacks as their brick-and-mortar counterparts, including standardised product ranges and sometimes underwhelming options for adjusting the size and pattern of the rug.
