Frequently Asked Questions

WHY BUY AN AREA RUG?

The right area rug can create a sense of intimacy and visual harmony in a room. It can anchor a conversational space, become a design focal point, and tie your furniture, artwork, and accessories together.

Here are a few more reasons to consider an area rug for your home:

  • Adds color, patterns, textures for visual interest
  • Changes the look, feel, and mood of a space
  • Anchors a room, creates a cohesive design
  • Creates visual boundaries in open-plan areas
  • Absorbs sound
  • Makes hardwood floors cozier
WHAT SIZE RUG DO I NEED?

To figure out what size rug you need, make sure to measure your space for a minimum and maximum length and width. One of the most common design mistakes is buying a rug that is too small for a room. Ideally, the edge of your rug should be 12-14 inches from the room’s perimeter. For a living room, your rug should be large enough that the front legs of the furniture are on it (or all four legs). Before you visit us, sketch the shape of your room along with room dimensions and draw where your furniture is positioned. You can also take a picture of your space or bring in fabric samples to share with our design team so we can better advise you.

CAN I PUT AN AREA RUG ON TOP OF CARPET?

Absolutely. Area rugs are an affordable way to update a room and cover older carpet. No rug pad needed.

CAN I TAKE THE RUG HOME?

Our “Check it Out” program allows you to take rungs home to make sure they are a perfect fit for your space before you commit to buying. This not only makes sure you get exactly what you’re looking for, but also prevents us from needing to have a return policy. Try before you buy. If after you try it out and it happens that you made a mistake, we do have a 3 day return policy as long as the rug is in new condition.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I HAVE MY RUG CLEANED?

To ensure your rug stays in excellent condition, we recommend cleaning your rugs every 1-3 years. In high traffic areas, you may want to clean your rug more frequently. Call us at (541) 383-9013 to arrange for your rug to be cleaned.

WILL MY RUG INCREASE IN VALUE?

Typically, if you invest in a high quality handmade rug and care for it, it will increase in value over time. Many of our rugs have become family heirlooms worth saving and passing down.
