Recently re-launched online rug store Rugmerchant.co.uk has announced that it has developed a new Room Planner facility on its product pages.

When customers have browsed through collections and have selected an individual product, they can now click on the Room Planner widget to visualise how that rug will look in their home. The user can type in the dimensions of any room in their home (longest wall and shortest wall in metres) and an image will be drawn with those measurements. Once the size of rug is selected, an image of a rug is then transferred onto the floor, where the user can then move it about accordingly. By adding ‘furniture’ and shapes that could replicate items in the user’s home, they can then begin to arrange them to position the rug within the confines of their room.

It is a functional way in which customers can see how a particular rug may look in their home. Many consumers will not want to risk purchasing something that they cannot guarantee will be right for their home, and thus will have to go through the process of returning the product and obtaining a refund. It is hoped, therefore, that the Room Planner facility can help to reduce this risk and give customers a better idea of how a product will work practically in their homes.

“Although our new site has only been live since November 2012, this new feature is just one way in which we can continually increase the quality of the shopping experience for our customers,” said Louise Gornall, partner at Rugmerchant.co.uk. “Our new Room Planner widget allows our customers to visualise the rug in their home on screen rather than them having to rely on their imagination alone. We’re hoping to receive some great feedback from our customers on this new feature, as we look at more ways in which we can increase the quality of service that we offer at Rugmerchant.co.uk.
