We need to pick a rug for our house but how do I get my significant other to like the same rug I like?

Ahhhhh, yes this can be a challenge and no, none of us are councilors. We do not encourage arm wrestling as a decision making process on the sales floor. We have noticed a few shopping techniques.

Are you the Scout, the Negotiator or “Whatever you Like is fine with me” shopper?

What to choose? Intricate patterns or simple lines?

Patterns on rug, fabric

Imagine this scenario: You come into the Rug Room looking for a plain colored rug. Why?

Well, your couch has a pattern, your love seat has a slightly different pattern, the armchair is in a contrasting color and the wallpaper and curtains all bring their own unique challenges to the design table. Too many patterns you think. The only solution to this seems to be a plain colored rug with as little pattern as possible.

In the Rug Room we see this scenario many times and help our customers combine the patterns in their home with a Bunyaad rug that also offers a variety of colors and patterns. Let us show you how.

Two kids, two dogs, two styles of rugs

A Chobi welcomes you to the home of Liz and Scott.

Two friendly bulldogs were my welcoming committee and my first indicator that all of the Bunyaad rugs in the home of Liz and Scott were not just on display but on the floor to be used. That, I have to say, is the best recommendation we can ever receive. Liz mentioned several times during my visit that they kept coming back for more Bunyaad rugs because they knew that the rugs could easily handle their active family life.

Modern Chic Meets Timeless Classics

Rugs at Parade of Homes

When designing our homes we want the overall effect to be a pleasing whole. The wallpaper shouldn’t fight with the sofa fabric, the styles of furniture shouldn’t compete with each other. You put time, energy and money into creating an authentic space that will be lived in by real people. YOU and your family!

Modern chic is relatively timeless as the basic design elements change only minimally and translate across decades. This is were Bunyaad rugs come in and add a timeless beauty and individuality that make your home personal and a most comfortable place to live in.

Top 3 Concerns of Many Rug Customers

Amir explains bunyaad rugs.When working in the rug room, we hear many of the same fears over and over again and yet by the time most folks leave, they have some peace of mind. Are these some of your concerns?

1. How will I ever decide from all of these rugs?

I think this is my all-time favorite concern. Folks walk up to the rug piles with their dimensions and fabric samples in hand, leave out a heavy sigh and proclaim they don’t know how they’ll ever narrow down their choices with so many rugs in our rug room to choose from.

Honestly, our rug piles can look daunting with over 25 different styles of rugs to choose from and sizes ranging from 2’x3′ to 10’x14′.

With each customer, we explain that as we look together we will go through all piles that are of interest to them, starting from the top and flipping down to the bottom of the pile. As we bring the rugs back down again, ones that are of interest will get rolled and laid on the floor for customers to compare side by side.
