The rug that you select is going to work within the architectural points of the room itself and is going to define the space. The rug becomes the canvas and the correct rug choice can bring a room to life.
1Carefullly select your dealer. Because of the wide varieties in types and value of Oriental Rugs it is essential that you work with a reputable dealer. Here at Paige Albright Orientals our staff has many years experience in helping clients pick out the best rugs for their needs.
2Know the exact dimensions of the room where you will be placing the rug. Make sure also that you know the pieces and placement of furniture so that you will pick a rug large enough so that a chair or sofa doesn't hang off the edge of the rug.
3Know the function of the space where you plan to place the rug. Is it a family room, dining room, sunroom or office? Will there be alot of foot traffic, pets, food, etc. You will need to assess this prior to purchasing to ensure that the carpet will be enjoyed for generations to come.
4Color is important. If the furniture in your room has bold colors you may want a more subtle pattern on your rug. If however your furniture is dark you can make a bold statement of color with your rug. Pay close attention to the types of textures that you will use as well to ensure that your selection is going to compliment the space. With so many colors and textures to choose from you should definitely look to your dealer for sound advise.
5Know your budget. It is important to set your budget with a little flexibility in order to meet the design criteria from above. Paige Albright can help you to make a wise investment while keeping your budget in mind.
