Although you have clear ideas about everything while you are still home, once you are in the store you may bump to the next issues:
- What color I wanted exactly?
- There is no rug with my exact dimensions, a rug with another size will do?
- What is the size of the pattern I have decided on?
- Will that cool fringe look good in the room?
- Is it really a problem if the color of the rug is only fairly accurate?

Avoid contrasting in excess with the nearby color schemes; otherwise you will end up hating it after a while. The exact shades have no major importance, as long as you roughly know the contrast you are looking for.
Even if color look different under different light sources, that should not be a real issue for the rough color contrast. The color of the rug might be different once it is in your room, but it doesn’t have to match to anything, as we are talking about an accent rug.

Dimension issues

Avoid going to the shop with only one size. Note down the minimum and maximum size of the wanted rug. If you are unable to find an oval or round one, you may go with a rectangular or square rug.

Do not buy a rug that is far from your preset specifications. If there is no suitable rug, go home and try to think to something else. Never change your predetermined ideas in the store.
Make sure the purchased rugs have suitable size, design and color to blend with your home décor.
