Visit a Virtual Rug Gallery and Save Time!
Walking around in an actual rug gallery can really take up your time. Getting directions, driving out to the gallery, finding parking, and walking around the gallery (some are huge like art galleries) to look through the rugs can take forever. Instead of spending all your time huffing it around, consider looking at what a rug store has to offer by viewing rug galleries online.
Many of the online galleries can give you a quick guide as to what rugs that store carries. Any questions you have you can get answered quickly by telephone or via e-mail. Some online area rug galleries offer provide FAQs online or even offer live chat over the Internet to help you answer your questions.
Worried about the shipping costs? Most online rug stores offer free shipping as well as 100% satisfaction guarantees that rival brick and mortar services. Because the computer can't do 100% justice to seeing the rugs in person, most online rug stores will let you keep the rug in your house for up to 15 days before you decide if you want to keep the rug or not. If not, you simply return the rug to the gallery for a refund or credit.
When you consider that most rug stores specialize in a certain type of rug, it makes sense to use an online gallery to match up your needs to their inventory. If you want an antique rug gallery, simple look for one in a search engine online. Likewise, if youāve got your heart set on a new rug by Kathy Ireland, it will be much easier to find out who carries her rugs and has them in stock.
Some of my favorite area rug galleries online include: Rugs USA and Direct Rugs. I also like to look at the rug importerās sites, even thought they donāt sell their rugs on their online area rug galleries. Momeni, Couristan, and 828 International Trading Company have some of my favorite area rug galleries that I frequent online.
