We just installed hardwoods (from Barton Co.-definitely recommend them) but need some large area rugs for acoustics and to add some color to the room. I have checked Lowe's, HD, HomeGoods and World Market but need something in the 10x14 or larger range. Any suggestions on places with a good selection and not completely outrageous prices? I realize that this size is expensive, but am not interested in spending thousands of dollars. I heard of a place near I35 and Walzem but wasn't sure what it was called.

Thanks!

Have you gone out to Garden Ridge Pottery? They used to sell them out there.

I do still need to check Garden Ridge, but the last time we were there, the largest I saw was 8x10. We really don't want to order it online in case it doesn't work out, the return shipping will be outrageous. Does anyone know of any rug outlets?

Pottery Barn outlet in San Marcos has some larger size rugs or check out JC Penny's. My sister has one of their cheaper rugs and it looks great. She's had it a couple of years in her dining room.

Check Tuesday Morning......not sure if they go that big, but it's worth a try as they generally have some nice rugs.

Here's a suggestion -- go to a carpet place and ask them if they will cut a carpet piece to the size you need and finish the edges. I can't remember what this is called, but many carpet stores/carpet sellers will not finish the edges. You can order carpet pieces from Home Depot, but then you have to take it to a rug finisher to get the edges done. However, it is hands down one of the least expensive ways to get an odd-size or large-size rug. How much you spend depends on the type of carpet you buy.

I went to Garden Ridge a few weekends ago and they have larger rugs, larger than 8x10. There is a carpet warehouse place near Walzem, maybe they make rugs like austindoxie said.

It's called "binding".
