February is the month of love but sometimes it is difficult to find “the one”. This month we are looking at 5 reasons why you are not finding the perfect rug.
Buying a new rug for your home should not be an emotional rollercoaster but unfortunately you could find yourself going down the proverbial rabbit hole.
After looking at your local rug stores you turn to the Internet to make your selection just to find yourself hours later lightly depressed because you have not managed to track down that perfect rug.
Then one day you just stumble across the “one” and you are instantly in love just to look at the price tag and feel faint.
You are now knee deep in the emotional stages of rug shopping. Where you go from excitement to apathy where you end thinking who needs a rug anyway.
If you’ve ever landed yourself in this situation then we have good news. Our Epiphany range of area rugs are perfectly priced for and offers mid-range, cost-effective rugs in South Africa, offering free shipping across South Africa and a multitude of colour options and sizes.
If you can’t find anything suitable in the Epiphany range, then you also have the Gonsenhausers Fine Rugs’ commitment to giving our customers genuine value for money to fall back on. Our offering is simple: quality rugs at prices that will satisfy with the option of receiving some decorating advice as part of the deal.
However, before you start clicking to view our online selection here are some pitfalls of buying a rug:
You are focused on the rug instead of the room
Remember that your rug is just part of the décor within a room and when you look at any piece it is important to visualise how this would work with the rest of the room.
We understand that this could sometimes feel impossible which is why we offer a moneyback guarantee as well as allow you to swop your rug for another one, should your vision not be met when you lay down the rug.
We also want to make visualisation easier for you and we are partnering with Floori to provide a visualisation tool which will assist you to ‘view’ the rug in your room. We will provide feedback on this later this month. So watch this space.
You want a family heirloom at a budget price
Unfortunately, price does play a role in finding that perfect rug.
You need to be realistic in your expectations; finding a rug that both fulfill your interior design vision as well as fit your budget could be near impossible. Look at alternatives to hand knotted vintage Persian rugs which will allow you to still buy that perfect rug but at a lower price.
You are unsure what kind of rug would be best
Sometimes it is difficult to figure out exactly what quality you want the rug to add to your room. In general rugs brings softness and defines the space but take time to think exactly what the primary aesthetic is you want the rug to bring to the room. Is it to add colour, a patterned focus point or texture?
If it is colour, then you can focus only on those colours required. If it is pattern, then think of what you want to achieve and stay clear from solid coloured rugs.
If your key focus is textures then you need to think if you need a shaggy carpet, low or high pile carpet. Again, this will narrow down your search tremendously.
You don’t know where to look
Well, this one is easy, you can visit Epiphany and Gonsenhausers Fine Rugs online to have a look at some options. You can also visit out store at The Palms Décor & Lifestyle Centre in Woodstock, Cape Town to view and discuss your requirements with our professional staff.
You are afraid to commit to just one rug
Sometimes the time searching, and the price tag add a pressure that makes us feel like it’s the BIGGEST COMMITMENT EVER.
Just remember it is not, and if you are really afraid of buying just one rug you can look at layering rugs to take your room to the next level.
So, for whatever the reason you feel unsure, we encourage you not to let the rug decision paralyse you. You have to push past the doubt and make that intentional purchase.
You deserve to have a space you love. That can most definitely happen, but it can never happen if you don’t choose that one rug.
