Buying a rug (Choosing)

Choosing an oriental rugThe most important factor when choosing an oriental rug is he reason 'why' the rug is being bought.  This may seem self-evident, but it is not unknown for people to purchase extremely attractive and reasonably priced items only to find, when they take them home, that they are the wrong size, or that the colour and design clash with their decorative scheme.  Equally, some rugs which represent extremely good value as furnishing items, are not suitable for long-term investments, while rugs with the highest investment potential may be out of place as decorative items in the home.  Some rugs are also more durable than others, and you should remember to take this into account when choosing the type most suited to each room or function.
