Rug Buying Tips

So you want a rug for your home, but you are not sure how to pick one out; you need not worry, we are here to help you through this. Here are some of the most important criteria that will help you make an educated decision:

1- Size:

If you are looking for a rug to fit in a big space such as your living room, dinning room or office, a Royal or Antique Rug might be your best bet. When assorted with the right furniture, this type of rugs can transform a dull room to a radiating space full of energy. On the other hand, if you are merely looking to give a special exotic touch to your furniture around the house, then maybe you should opt for a small tribal rug (Kilim or Glaoui). These rugs come in enough themes to please every taste.

2- Color:

Depending on what purpose you intend your room to serve, rug colors can play an important role in redefining the geometric and aesthetic aspect of your space. The lighting can also have an interesting effect on the wool and silk materials of our high quality rugs. You will notice that throughout the day, your rug will look different as it reflects the light that it is exposed to.

3- Shape:

Shape is an important aspect when shopping around for a rug. Please note that most of our rugs are rectangular shaped. If you are looking for another shape, contact us so we can provide you with other alternatives.

4- Maintenance:

Maintenance is a very important aspect of rug education; placing a rug in a heavy traffic area such as a kitchen or a living room exposes it to more staining and wear. These events are unavoidable during the rug's lifetime, therefore one needs to educate themselves about the proper way of cleaning a handmade wool rug. There are some very good articles online that describe a do-it-yoursef cleaning process, or you can also send your rug to a professional rug cleaning center.

5- Style:

There are enough rug styles for each person in this planet. These styles vary from complex and intricate designs to basic and irregular shapes. As you are shopping around for the "Right" Rug, try to ask yourself questions pertaining to the five criteria mentioned in this page, as they will help us match you with the best possible rug: The one that was made just for you!
