They showed me the rug and discussed how to keep it clean, reduce the damage from dog hair – and my vacuum! Great place.

Handmade rugs can greatly enhance the look of any room and compliment any interior design style. Ideally, how to choose a rug begins with selecting the other elements of the room, such as furniture, curtains, wall coverings, etc. A handmade rug will unite all elements in a room and tie everything together. We highly recommend you use the services of an interior designer to assist in your project.

There are four major factors you need to take into account when selecting an area rug, they are: color, size, overall design and budget. The first and most important element in selecting your rug is that its colors compliment the overall color scheme of the room you are decorating. After color, rug size is very important because you not only want the right color combination but you want a rug that is symmetrical with the room. Next important is the design of the rug, geometric rugs like a Heriz or floral like Kashan? An all over pattern or a center medallion? Soon enough you will discover what is right for that room.

Last but not least is budget, as you learn about different grades of quality, youll get a good idea of market prices and youll be able to establish a rug budget. Remember to stay flexible and keep in mind your rug purchase is an investment in the long-term beauty of your home. Handmade rugs can also be used as unique elements in other design situations. Rugs can be placed in the kitchen or in the bathroom and will add an element of refinement even to these utilitarian areas. Fine silk, even small pictorial rugs can be hung from a wall like a tapestry to add drama and unique effects to a room. Hand made rugs such a as runners can add an element of warmth and style to halls and stairways.
