Consider following guidelines to choose and buy your rug:
- If redecorating an already furnished room, choose a rug to pick up the colors used in your furnishing patterns
- Paint or paper the walls in colors found in the rug when color coordinating.
- Look for a rug that has commonality with the existing color of the walls.
- A rug with a bold, overall design can be the focal point of a room with a chair and sofa in solid or subdued patterns.
- Light colored rugs make a room look more spacious, and deeper colors lend coziness to a room.
- For floor rugs wool is usually a preferred choice as it resists daily wear better than synthetics. Wool has many wonderful qualities- deep, rich color tones, high durability and relative ease of care. For more information you can read article Advantages of Wool over Synthetic Fibers.
- Silk rugs are better used for walls, throws etc. Living rooms are ideal to showcase silk rugs.
- Chromium dyes are strong and deliver consistency and durability of color.
- Vegetable dyes give the rug a patina of color, a casual look that is very attractive.
- Let your decorating style determine your rug shape.
- Don’t be limited to the idea of getting a rectangular rug.
- A circular or octagonal-shaped floor covering can add flair and elegance.
- Medallion and round rugs should be centered in the room & directly under the chandelier.
- Don’t select a busy area rug if the room’s color scheme and patterns are busy as well.
- Keep your family safe by making sure that rug corners do not extend into high traffic areas.
- Watch out for the fringe. If the rug you like has fringe, make sure it’s sewn on well, and very carefully use the vacuum cleaner.
- Look at the back of a rug, as this will usually tell if it is machine or handmade. If the fibers are stiff and run straight up and down, it’s a machine rug.
- When buying oriental rugs, avoid going-out-of-business sales and auctions where sellers aren’t likely to be around later if your rug has a problem.
- In all rooms try to avoid having the corner of the rug end up in the middle of the doors or archway openings.
- For smaller rooms, a small pattern is more appropriate. It gives the appearance of a larger room.
- If you’re looking for absolute perfection, don’t buy a handmade area rug. Expensive hand-made rugs are not squared off as properly as imitation machine-made reproductions.
- Don’t underestimate the value of an underlay. Not only will it absorb the impact of feet and noise, it will reduce wear and tear on the rug and make vacuuming easier.
- It is recommended to rotate rugs end for end on a yearly basis to equalize wear.
- Oriental rugs fade, as does upholstery. Avoid direct sunlight.
- Another recommendation is to have rugs cleaned professionally periodically by a reputable cleaner.
- To meet Federal Trade Commission requirements Persian/ Oriental rug dealers label each rug with its country of origin and the distributor’s business name. Labels having the words Indo-, Sino- or Pak-, for instance, would indicate that a rug came from India, China or Pakistan respectively.
- Rugs are called ‘tribal” if they are woven by nomadic groups.
