Rugs might seem like basic supplies for college dorms, but they’re essentials for dorm life, and rugs are actually more detailed and even complex products than might first be perceived. Simply offering enough of a selection in color can be a challenge for any company, DormCo recognizes, because customers are always looking for variety and not just standard, minimal selection. While there are plenty of black, red, and blue rugs, DormCo’s seen other, perhaps less common colors gain popularity. The baby pink College Plush Rug has been a well-received item, as some college girls prefer a rug with a subtle hue to complement their college decor. DormCo’s aqua-colored College Plush Rug was also very popular, as it brought a bright, cheery color to students’ dorm room decor.
College dorm rugs do vary quite a bit in their material and texture, and DormCo’s striven to keep its selection varied again. DormCo’s exclusive plush rugs have been very popular due to their excessive softness and comfort; the rugs are designed to make a dorm room really feel like home, and not just like any other college dorm. They’re also perfect for colder months, bringing much-needed warmth to bare feet. For students looking for a more basic, regular but still soft rug, DormCo’s microfiber rugs have been the go-to college rug. The microfiber rugs aren’t as thick as the plush rugs, nor do they have the long strands of fabric. However, some prefer the shorter pile rugs, as they’ve also been consistent best sellers.
This past year, DormCo brought a new type of rugs for dorms to its inventory of college products. The company added eco-friendly rugs made from recycled plastic. These rugs were more like mats than rugs, as they were indoor-outdoor rugs that were made from woven plastic straw-like material, as opposed to being soft and fabric-based. Still, it never hurts to be earth friendly while shopping for college, and the rugs were popular dorm room items.
In the rug shopper’s opinion, perhaps the most important feature of a rug for college isn’t so much what the rug is made from as it is its looks. While DormCo has many rugs with solid colors and familiar designs, it also has always included a variety of rugs with more unique and even eccentric patterns and designs; some have animal print patterns, while others have swirls of color and bright decoration. While DormCo has already added new colorways to its Ivy Rug, which is a more basic, standard-looking rug, new patterns that liven up students’ decor will be on their way in 2014 for a variety of existing rug models and for new ones yet to be released.
