The 5 Best Area Rug Stores in Edmonton (Ratings & Reviews)

feature wall of a selection of various area rugs

You’re looking for something very specific – an area rug. And area rugs almost seem to fall in this weird in-between category, as far as where you can find them. Should you go to a wall-to-wall carpet centre or would this be something that a furniture store would carry?

It does generally fall under both, actually. Which makes it even harder to find the right store to give you the selection you need! However, a few stores in Edmonton specialize in exactly what you’re looking for.

And of course, every retailer is going to claim to be the “best” or the “#1 choice for area rugs,” but how do you really know what you’re getting into?

At McElheran’s Furniture + Design, we’ve been around for a while – since 1994, actually! We’ve seen many area rug stores in Edmonton thrive; with each having a lot to offer. It’s definitely worth your time to see what kind of options you have in the city.

And we would love to provide you with your next area rug, of course, but that doesn’t necessarily mean we’re going to be the right fit for you. Which is why you’re looking at the 5 Best Area Rug Stores in Edmonton, right? You want to see which place is going to suit your needs and create your desired look.

Now, at some point in this list, you may notice that McElheran’s Furniture + Design isn’t even on it.

So, you’re thinking, “I don’t get it, you have an entire rug centre in your showroom, why wouldn’t you put yourself on the list?” And that’s a good point. This does seem like a great opportunity to just tell you all about our rug centre and selection, but that wouldn’t be fair to you, right?

You came to this article to find out who’s out there and what they can offer you, all with the hope of finding the best area rug for your space. And that’s what we want for you, too! We want you to be able to buy with confidence - no matter where you go.
