In December of 2022, Jay Erwin embarked on a new journey by becoming the owner of two distinct yet complementary stores, Area Rug Dimensions and KC Wholesale Carpet. This transition came after completing his Executive MBA at the University of Missouri in May of the same year. These two stores, operating under one umbrella at the same location, are not just businesses for Erwin; they represent his passion for making a positive impact on others.
A Veteran’s Vision
Erwin’s background is rooted in the military and federal service, which instilled in him the values of discipline, dedication, and a strong sense of community. Upon transitioning to civilian life, he sought a path that would allow him to continue making a positive difference. One way he accomplishes this is through volunteering his time with GallantFew, a non-profit organization dedicated to assisting veterans through life’s transitions on an individual basis. He also pursued his ambition to positively impact the lives of others through his flooring business endeavors.
Area Rug Dimensions: Craftsmanship and Customization
Area Rug Dimensions is a haven for those seeking luxury imported rugs that are nothing short of artistry for the floor. The store sources its products from India and Southwest Asia, offering a diverse range of hand-made, hand-knotted, and hand-loomed rugs. What sets these rugs apart is the painstaking craftsmanship involved, with some pieces taking six to nine months to complete. Crafted in smaller farm areas in India, these rugs represent an old-school approach to rug making.
The hallmark of Area Rug Dimensions is its ability to customize pieces. Erwin and his team can transform your carpet into a beautifully bound, edged, or surged rug, tailored to your exact specifications. With a vast showroom featuring various sizes and styles, they provide standard sizes that can be cut down to fit any space. This process is highly personalized, ensuring that customers receive a unique piece that perfectly complements their interior design. Area Rug Dimensions also offers delivery, furniture moving, and setup services, making the entire experience hassle-free.
“These rugs are easy to clean and some even come with built-in Scotch Guard protection,” noted Erwin. If cleaning is required, the store can refer customers to professional rug cleaning companies.
One of the standout qualities of these rugs is their resilience and durability, thanks to their unique construction. With a wide array of options and sizes in stock, Area Rug Dimensions promises to amaze anyone looking to elevate their home decor.
“We provide a highly custom process for our customers,” expressed Erwin.

KC Wholesale Carpet goes above and beyond by not only installing new flooring but also handling furniture moving and the removal of old carpet. They even offer floor leveling services, effectively taking ownership of the entire flooring project to ensure perfection.

Erwin sees his employees as integral members of the team. He values their ideas, input, and suggestions, fostering a collaborative environment that benefits both the business and its customers. This commitment to teamwork and excellence is reflected in the quality of products and services offered by Area Rug Dimensions and KC Wholesale Carpet.
Area Rug Dimensions and KC Wholesale Carpet are not just stores; they are the embodiment of Erwin’s vision to create a positive impact on the community.
