We all want to decorate our home beautifully and still feel like we got a great deal. Area rugs are among the most popular accent pieces added to any living space during a design or decorating project.
How does one get a hold of affordable rugs without sacrificing on the quality of rugs? Simple, find a local rug store that carries a large volume of area rugs. The larger the inventory, the easier it is for the stores to negotiate on pricing. This does not mean you’ll get a lower quality rug, but rather an affordable rug you can enjoy in the comforts of your home without breaking the bank.
There are some rugs in which the price cannot be lowered due to the labor involved in making them or the historical value of them, including:
- Persian Rugs
- 100% Silk and handmade rugs
- Antique Area rugs
You’ll want to choose a rug that fits your style and will last you a long time, so don’t sacrifice on quality. Regular maintenance of area rugs will expand their life span and help eliminate any added cost associated in the future.
