How-To Drive Rug Sales
It sounds counter-intuitive to hear a rug company say “not a rug,” doesn’t it? But, think about it . . . you wouldn’t sell a suit without suggesting a shirt and tie – so, why would you sell furniture without suggesting an area rug to pull an entire look together?
Over and again, home furnishings and home décor retailers look for better ways to increase sales tickets with less effort. That’s why we suggest, rather than positioning the rug as a stand-alone item, incorporate it into the entire offering and sell the complete feeling of “right at home” instead.
Yes, there are rug retailers absolutely crushing it when it comes to individual rug sales. But, these professionals have mastered their niche – rug sales – by building a business and the resulting relationships that makes them the go-to for one rug purchases. You, furniture retailer, have a vastly different offering that requires a different approach.
When furniture and home décor retailers place rugs in their showroom vignettes, their sales reps enjoy increased commissions because it makes it easy for the customer to “see” the end result. After all, the number one obstacle to rug sales is fear. That’s right. Good old-fashioned fear.
People are afraid to make the wrong choice when it comes to buying an area rug. Consider it from their point of view – an area rug is a big, heavy, cumbersome mistake if it doesn’t “work” with the home’s furnishings or paint colors. That’s why we’ve enjoyed watching our retailers increase sales again and again by taking the “entire room” approach. Not to mention the added benefit of reduced returns! That’s right, when consumers can see the rug with the furniture prior to a purchase commitment, consumer confidence improves, customer satisfaction increases and returns reduce.
Additionally, when an area rug is positioned with furniture, it’s easy to speak to the way an area rug completes the room. This conversation is one of the training elements our reps offer to our retailers. Teach your clients and customers how the rug draws all of the room’s beautiful elements together to give it a complete and grounded feel. And, if the customer doesn’t enjoy a particular style or design, it’s easy enough to recommend a substitute design in a similar color palette.
To help one of our retailers get a feel for how much of an impact a rug can have in a showroom setting, we photoshopped a selection or two into place for this retailer. You can see the dramatic difference a rug makes in the room scene. And when they placed the rugs in real life, which vignette do you think customers gravitated toward when the retailer took our suggestion and placed the rug in the room? You bet! The one with the area rug.
Of course, area rug sizing also matters when it comes to customer satisfaction. It’s one thing to throw a huge 12×15 in a warehouse-sized furniture showroom. But, some of your customers won’t be able to accommodate that at home. That’s why it’s important to understand how to help your clients choose the appropriate rug size and then order accordingly.
With the popularity of open floorplans we have noticed a marked upswing in the size of our top-performing area rugs. Over the last few years, our numbers prove that homeowners continue to shift their preference from the 5×8 to the 8×10 and, in some instances, even the 9×13. But, if your clients have a small loft, apartment or home, the 5×8 may be their best choice.
At the end of the day, adding an area rug to every sales ticket boosts your business without additional effort. You’re already selling the furniture – by adding an area rug you’re simply showing how the right floor covering pulls the entire room together. Higher ticket sales and improved customer satisfaction should be proof enough for the ensemble approach to furniture and home décor sales. Especially if you work for a company that offers higher commissions on home décor products!
A Conversation with Simply Southern Cottage’s Sara McDaniel
In search of a spark to start the new year, I picked up the phone for a chat with Sara of Simply Southern Cottage. After all, there’s no one better to instill a sense of hope and optimism than the lady who pursued her dream home in Minden, LA for almost two years!
We chatted about the holidays and the house . . . did a little dreaming about future projects and some reminiscing, too. If you’re not familiar with Sara’s story, it’s definitely worth a read. She is a testament to the power of faith – even in the beginning, when it’s the size of a mustard seed.
O: You are such an inspiration on so many levels. Your story of renovation and redemption lifts me personally and professionally – to know that even the strangest nudge has a way of working out in the end. I love that you listened to that still, small voice.
SM: It was hard at first! I tried to ignore it, but the whisper persisted until I just couldn’t fight it. At that point it was more like a yell!
O: But, the payoff was worth it. Just look at your cottage!
SM: It has been an amazing journey, for sure. I’ve just grown so much through all of it.
O: I absolutely adore your front porch – it’s such a great space! And I love that you style for each season. Which of your scenes do you love the best? Not that they’re not all fabulous.
SM: This year’s Christmas, for sure. I had a vision for what I wanted and it actually worked! I need my front porch to exude Southern charm and create a welcoming atmosphere – whether I have guests coming over or people are just driving by. The fall porch was my second favorite.
O: We love – and truly appreciate – that you have our indoor/outdoor rugs on your gorgeous porches. How are those working out? Like, for real-real. Don’t feel compelled to embellish.
SM: Omigosh, I love them. I’ve had the Boucle Biscay in Driftwood out there for more than a year now and it still looks new.
O: That is great to hear! What are you doing to it?
SM: I literally just blow it off with a leaf blower once a month. Seriously, it holds up so well. It gets intense sun, this IS Louisiana, I’ve had plants on it that have tipped over – I just blow it off! I had one spill that needed a rinse, but that’s it.
O: They’re resilient. Just like the homeowner! Which other patterns do you own?
SM: I have the Breeze Cerulean and Aegean – and the Boucle Jenna.
O: Wow! That’s quite the collection. What drew you to these rugs initially?
SM: The soft patterns and neutral colors. I knew I wanted something that would pair easily with seasonal décor and other fabrics. When I moved into the cottage, I wanted to create a simple, calm space that included wood, light colors and lots of textures.
O: The Boucle and Breeze collections certainly do all of that!
SM: Yes. Then, after living with the rugs, I fell in love with the ease of them. I don’t have a lot of time between my job, my blog and renovating a new space – I can’t spend my time scrubbing, so these rugs are perfect for my life. They’re easy.
O: Speaking of your new project, where is it taking you?
SM: It’s right here in Minden! I absolutely love my town and want everyone to have a chance to see it for what it is – warm and inviting. We’re named “The Friendliest City in the South”!
After a conversation with Sara, it’s easy to see why Minden earned its name. She is the quintessential girl next door – a brilliant combination of soft and strong with a side of sass and spunk! Plus, she has great style . . . as evidenced by her love of Orian rugs. Subscribe to her blog and follow along on her adventures on Instagram. You’re sure to walk away with a healthy dose of inspiration for the year ahead – just like we did.
(What You Absolutely MUST Know) About Area Rugs
I started working for Orian Rugs less than a year ago. In that short time, I’ve learned a few things about area rug construction and sizing. More importantly, though, I’ve learned that area rugs have a funny way of taking people out at the knees.
So, if you’re shopping for the perfect rug right now and find yourself stressed, unsure, frustrated and feel like you’re chasing your tail . . . welcome to the party! Here’s what you need to know while you’re here:
1. Your friends/family/neighbors don’t know what they’re doing either.
Regardless of how “together” someone else’s room seems, they started at the same place you stand now – on a bare floor, scratching their head about how to choose an area rug. So, take a deep breath and let yourself off the hook. The good news/bad news of this revelation – there is no magical formula that ensures selection perfection. Buying an area rug is more of a “Choose Your Own Adventure” rather than a romance novel.
Right now, you’re likely starting at one of two points:
- You have a fully-furnished living space and need an area rug to fit into your existing style. Welcome to the majority! As luxurious as completely starting over sounds, most of us are simply working to change things up a bit. To choose your rug, browse inspirational photos online to find furniture and décor styles similar to your own. Then, shop for an area rug that rings the same bells. Just don’t get too attached. You might start changing your mind as you consider a few other factors. For now, though, you advance to 2.
- You’re starting from the ground up – with either no furniture or a plan to replace everything you own. Hello ambitious one! What a fabulous undertaking! Starting from the ground up gives you two distinct starting points: a. “I love this area rug so hard and I simply can’t live another day without it. This is my new soul mate!” If this is you, pack your bag and move on to 2. b. I want to create a certain aesthetic in my home and don’t necessarily have a rug in mind so much as I have a “look” or “feel” that I want to accomplish.
Your best bet here is to simultaneously make rug, furniture, paint and accessories selections – keeping in mind that you might want to change your mind as your project moves forward.
For example, let’s say you want to create something very Farmhouse. You look online and pin 53,000 images from Joanna et al. Then, you go about finding the particular pieces. You choose a beautiful Benjamin Moore blue for the walls, find the perfect sofa and accent chair and discover the Orian Farmhouse collection.
Your heart sings when you see the Grand Turk area rug in cerulean blue – and on you go. Except that, when you actually paint the walls, you realize that you’ve overdone it with the blue and steer towards the same rug in Driftwood or choose a lighter blue and white combo, like Passing Ships in seashell.
Now you see how small adjustments to the expected area rug outcome get you to the same destination with a slightly different route. Now you’re free to set sail for area rug sizing – Point 2.
2. One size does NOT fit all.
Sizing befuddles the brilliant, so you can simmer down. Paying attention in Geometry class instead of passing notes with your BFF wouldn’t have you feeling any more confident. I promise. Some of the brightest people I know have sent messages (after learning of my Orian Rugs employment) to please help them understand how to choose the right size area rug.
Alas, if there was one gloriously easy formula for instant satisfaction, we would never see another bare floor! Oh no, variables and naked floors abound.
To help you muddle through the murky size waters, we’ve put together some helpful reference material – like a blog and infographics – to serve as a step-by-step guide to choosing the right size area rug for your room. In the meantime, though, consider whether you want some, all or none of your furniture on the area rug.
- If you want all of your furniture on the rug, measure the size of the room – allotting space for a border of the existing floor around the edges of the rug.
- If you want only the front legs of the furniture on, place your furniture in the room and measure accordingly.
- If you want no furniture on the rug, a 5×8 area rug will likely serve your needs beautifully.
However, you have to keep your unique space in mind when choosing rug size and furniture arrangement. A 5×8 rug will be lost in a 5,000 square foot home, but will generously complement a Manhattan studio. Quite the variable, huh?
Another important consideration: transport and placement. The bigger the rug, the heavier and more awkward it is. So it’s important to know how you’ll get it home and, subsequently, placed. If you’re shopping for a shag or some other fluffy rug and can’t handle the weight, consider placing 2 5x8s side by side and pushing the pile together to hide the seam.
3. Material matters.
The material you choose will determine the care and wear of your new area rug – so don’t just buy something because it looks good. You absolutely must consider that funny side effect called ownership. Ho-hum.
Wool, silk, cotton and other natural yarns typically come with high-maintenance care routines. I can’t speak to these as I don’t have any real experience with them. What I do know, however, is that synthetics are incredible.
I know, I know . . . the word synthetic is doused with polyester-laden images of 70’s shirts. But, the new synthetic is like anything you’ve ever felt before. And it all starts with a little something called “extrusion.” The yarn extrusion process is the art of transforming resin into a sublimely soft yarn that not only feels amazing, but is also stain-resistant, non-fading and easy-to-clean. Read that again, wine lovers . . . stain resistant.
Personally, the easy-to-clean part opens my ears. I don’t have time for fussy care routines. Plus, I don’t need the pressure of ruining a crazy expensive wool or silk rug. I mean, I’m adulting . . . but only barely. So, I’m not trying to get carried away with the number of things I’m in charge of caring for!
I digress. Polypropylene area rugs are truly a godsend for people who, like me, want to entertain their friends and family without getting warped about Aunt Joan and Cousin Donna having exaggerated conversations with full glasses of red wine. These rugs are made for real life and daily living. But, they’re luxurious and beautiful enough for placement in high-end spaces.
In addition to looking at the yarn material, you’ll also want to check out the backing. If your rug contains jute or cotton, only use it indoors. There are 100% polypropylene rugs that are approved for indoor or outdoor use, but if there’s jute or cotton in the backing they’re inside-only. The label should indicate if your area rug is an indoor/outdoor rug, but if there’s question, look at the materials list.
Here’s why: natural fibers – like jute and cotton – are susceptible to moisture. This means that you need to be careful about placement AND care. This includes spot treatment. When you spot clean an area rug with a jute backing, take time and care not to douse the rug with cleaning solution or rinse water. Yes, dabbing takes ages. Do it anyway.
Not only will the wetting and drying of the backing cause buckling and warping, it will also speed deterioration. I, personally, want my rugs to last until I decide I’m ready for a change. And speaking of change, we’re on to the point 4.
4. It’s okay to be fickle. Great rugs are available at approachable price points.
As a consumer, one of the biggest roadblocks to my buying a rug was my penchant for redecorating. Because, I thought, that until I hit the numbers, my bank account determines the extent to which I can update my rooms. To my happy surprise – that’s not the case!
What I have learned during my time at Orian is that there are rugs designed to appeal to trend and rugs designed to last a lifetime. And both can be shockingly affordable. Yes, trendier pieces will time out and you’ll want to buy a new area rug faster, but if you’re smart about your selection, the decision to update won’t break the bank.
Just don’t disregard the timeless patterns on account of building a trendier space. Many “new traditional” rugs feature classic patterns in updated color palettes – which means you can use a timeless style in a trend focused space. When the furniture phases out, the rug remains relevant and you’re able to put new pieces on top.
Or, you can find a new life for the old rug elsewhere in your home. For example, when I bought my new house, I took the runners that used to flank my bed and made them at home in my kitchen. Then, I bought 3 new rugs for the bedroom because I like a layered look. Maybe your living room rug moves into the office area and the dining room rug gets a place in the guest bedroom. Do-si-do . . . you get the point!
Whatever you choose, know that buying an area rug doesn’t have to break the bank. There are countless area rugs out there at very approachable prices. And, if you make a mistake or things go awry, don’t despair! Check the return/exchange policy of your retailer of choice. Also know the warranty available on your new area rug by the manufacturer.
Orian works with TONS of great retailers who offer easy returns and exchanges. Plus, the company covers the rugs for one-year from the purchase date to protect consumers against defects.
Of course, if you simply tire of your new look quickly and long for a refresh, re-home your rug within your home! It’s okay to be fickle about home fashion. That’s the fun of interior décor!
Buy Your Next Area Rug Online!
I remember a time – before Amazon and Wayfair – when people simply couldn’t believe home fashions would ever be bought online. I can still hear my friend’s mom, “It’s crazy to think someone would buy a chair without sitting in it! How will they know if the length of the cushion is right for their legs? I just don’t see how this can work.”
Fast-forward and our lives are PRIME! Free, 2-day shipping rocks us to sleep at night and we’re all pursuing the life of our dreams in point-and-click style.
There are a few hold-outs, though, who refuse to buy textiles online, like area rugs. But for some, the benefits of buying an area rug online far outweighs the criticisms – especially considering the current assets on some of our favorite area rug websites. The image quality and videos of today’s online retailer almost let you touch and feel through your screen. It’s no longer necessary to run a hand across the face of a new rug. The hand model will do it for you. And when it comes to AR and VR integrations? Forget about it! It’s the next best thing to taking your new area rug home and trying it on your floor for free!
Here are a few good reasons why you should, in fact, buy your next area rug online:
.Coms make area rug shopping EASY
Let’s be honest – no one wants to spend hours, weeks and months driving across town, out of town and all around in the name of finding the perfect rug. Especially when you can click your way to a broader selection than you would ever find on the road! It’s the world wide web, remember? And the best part? You can do all of this from the comfort of your home after the kids go to bed, at lunch or at your desk when you’re pretending to crank out that data analysis for the boss. *yawn* As an added bonus, you save gas money and avoid traffic-associated road rage.
.Coms offer a tremendous variety of area rugs
The aforementioned “broader selection” is worth an extra mention here. Shopping for your next area rug online affords you the luxury of filtering. So, if you’re shopping for a blue rug – filter – that’s 5×8 – filter – and traditional in nature – filter – that’s acceptable for indoor or outdoor use – filter – you’re left with a handful of exquisite selections that meet your exact criteria. Another beautiful bonus? You can set your price parameters before you start shopping so you don’t fall in love with an Aston Martin on a Ford budget.
Improved manufacturing quality creates confident online buys
Modern manufacturing is nothing short of amazing. Especially when you touch and feel machine woven rugs. Tight, precise and stable – these area rugs are truly built to please. And not just from a sensory perspective! Yes, they’re pretty and soft, but practically speaking, machine woven area rugs stand up to your busy home (pets and kids included) holding their shape and color for years.
Online shopping offers instant insight into others’ experience with the rug
In a perfect world, your BFF would accompany you to every store and give her honest opinion and review of every rug you peruse. Alas, jobs. But, thanks to the magic of the interwebs, you have 18,739 BFFs! Rug reviews ensure the experience of ownership before you buy. Think about it – if Karen spilled gravy on the rug at Thanksgiving and it started to unravel, you know she would write about it. Likewise, if the color, texture and performance please, you’ll read about that, too! In other words, reviews are the equivalent of shopping with a bestie who already bought it, vacuumed it, spot treated it and told you all about it.
.Coms offer competitive area rug pricing
In addition to filtering for rugs within your budget, you’ll likely find that the online price is generally lower than what you’ll find in a brick-and-mortar store. Your online experience also comes with flash sales and discount codes to further sweeten the pot. By now, you’re likely savvy enough at online shopping to save a bundle and still get exactly what you want.
Saving the best for last, delivery is by far and away the biggest benefit of buying a rug online. Whether you live in a city and don’t have access to a car or you’re a single person who can’t physically handle getting an 80-pound rug from the store to the car and up X-flights of stairs – delivery is a win. And, with today’s demand for free shipping, many online retailers offer just that. Be sure to check your preferred retailer’s shipping policy prior to buying to avoid unwanted surprises at check-out.
This is why Orian Rugs partners with a host of wonderful online retailers who specialize in creating an outstanding customer experience for their guests. When you’re online, you’ll be able to see the details of rug patterns up close and enjoy a look at rug attributes, like pile height. And, with the magic of videography, you can even get a sense for how the rug fibers move to determine if the selection is right for your home and family. After all, if you live with someone who has mobility issues, you’re prioritizing the stability of a dense, low pile over a loose shag. Again – all searchable filters.
At the end of the day, people will likely camp within their comfort zone. But, just for a moment, open your mind to the idea that you could bring a truly unique area rug into your home with a few taps on your phone. And, quite likely, for less money than you expect to pay!
Take Good Care
Growing up in a small town, like Anderson, SC, most of us were raised to respect our elders, care for our belongings and try to fix what’s broken – figuratively and literally. That’s why we deeply appreciate your search for ways to care for and clean your area rug.
The good news about your Orian Rug is that it’s durable beyond belief. Woven of solution-dyed polypropylene yarns, our rugs offer a level of confidence that others simply cannot. That’s because polypropylene is naturally stain- and fade-resistant.
Now, that doesn’t mean you have free reign to christen your rug with a bottle of Pinot Noir. It does mean, however, that you don’t have to run around like your hair is on fire when someone knocks something over.
Yes, you want to move quickly to scoop up offending matter and blot up all the associated liquids. But there’s no need to cry, shriek or panic. Simply use our handy infographic to navigate the right steps in the proper order. After all, if you start with 6 you’re going to make things much worse for yourself.
And, making things worse is never the intention at Orian Rugs. We strive to design area rugs that make life better on their owners. Beyond beauty, we ensure our rugs are both comfortable and durable. We know that you have families – and families come with skateboards, lipstick, walkers, work boots and puppies. So, we manufacture a product that doesn’t have to be handled with kid gloves.
Real life happens. And, more often than not, it will happen right in the middle of your rug.
That’s why we encourage you to give it a shrug and follow our step-by-step cleaning guide. You’ll turn things around again.
Yes, yes . . . we know you want your house to be as perfect as an Instagram Influencer. But, we’ll let you in on a little insider secret – even their houses get messy sometimes!
So, here we are – right in the middle of a perfectly imperfect life looking for ways to bring the lessons of our childhood into the future. Whether you do it by looking out for your friends and neighbors, keeping a close watch over the care and maintenance of your belongings or seeking to mend all the broken fences, everyone at Orian Rugs salutes you.
Because, as long as we live, chocolate ice cream will jump out of bowls and a carefree cartwheel will send coffee mugs careening. Don’t worry – just take good care. Orian Rugs are built to withstand your family’s perfect imperfection.
