Why should I buy a rug online rather than going into a store?

Buying a new rug can be a very expensive investment and so it makes sense to be completely sure about what you want before you commit to a purchase. A good way to do this is to do a great deal of research before hand about what you like, need or want.

Obviously one way of doing this is to trail around the many and various stores that will be in the high street, but this in itself can be a huge trial and can turn the pleasure of buying your new rug into something more like a chore that just needs to be over as soon as possible.

Browsing the internet

Not so with  the experience of shopping online. When you browse through the internet everything you need is right there at your fingertips and you don’t even have to leave your house or even your comfy chair. You can take all the time you want to make your choices and there are no pushy sales people to influence your decision.

Shopping online can be a genuinely pleasurable experience and without all the need for travelling in all sorts of weather and at odd times of the day. You can browse totally at your convenience and at whatever time of the day (or night) that suits you.

No quibble returns

Add to this that online shops, like Terry’s Fabrics, give you a full no quibble money back guarantee if you are not perfectly happy with your rug when it arrives, not many stores will offer that and if they do you usually end up with a credit note that has to be spent at that particular store when perhaps the rug you really want is somewhere else.

Another down side to shopping on the high street is that the lighting in most shops is usually quite harsh and overly bright. This sort of lighting does not lend itself to good colour representations and this may well mean that the rug you think is one colour in the lighting inside the shop ends up looking quite different when you lay it down in your home where the lighting is probably much softer and more natural.

Online sales all year round

Another good thing to watch out for when shopping online is the sales items. When shopping in a big store you will find that they have a sale at certain times of the year, however shop online and you will find discount prices and sales items are available throughout the year, and obviously if you can get your rug at a better price then that is a good result.

You will also find at Terry’s Fabrics that there is a designated team of experts to advise you before you make your decision on anything that you’re not sure about, along with a customer review page that you can check out to see what other people thought of all aspects of their shopping experience.

The advantages of shopping online for rugs are many, more especially when you take into account the choice of colours, styles, designs and sizes available, few high street shops can offer all of these.
