Area Rug for Sale

How to Find an Area Rug for Sale

It's easy to find an area rug for sale using the Internet. Most rug stores with online galleries that have area rugs sold online will also have the occasional rug sale and usually keep a clearance center stocked with discounted area rugs.

If you're shopping for area rugs for sale, be prepared to be flexible. You may not find the exact pattern you were looking for or you may not be able to find the accompanying area rug that you wanted. But really, when it comes down to it, if you get a area rug pattern that is very close to what you wanted at close to half the price, that's a pretty good deal. And you don't need to the area rugs in your house be matchy-matchy. Designer decorated homes rarely match area rugs; they'll usually have complimenting area rugs.

But some things you don't want to compromise when you buy a clearance area rug are:

  • Style. If you were looking for a Persian area rug, don't buy an art deco area rug. It's not the kind of area rug you wanted, and no matter what a good deal it was, you're messing up your room if you compromise the style of the area rug.
  • Color. If your first choice for an area rug was emerald, don't compromise and bring home an area rug from a rug sale in teal. The color of an area rug will either go together really well or clash with the rest of your room, unless of course the area rug is in a neutral color.
  • Quality. Look at the material and the density of the hand knots of the area rug when you're shopping at a rug sale. You canât always tell at first glance with rugs sold online. Get details so youâll know how sweet a clearance area rug's price is.
