There are a number of factors that go into choosing an Oriental or Persian rug for your home. How much space you have, the color palette you’ve chosen, and furniture layout will impact your rug buying. We’ve created this rug buying guide as a way to assist you in your search for that perfect rug.
The first step in choosing the ideal area rug for your home is to evaluate the current look and feel of the space you’re decorating. Are you planning on changing the color of the walls or furniture? Do you want your rug to make a statement with its contrasting colors? Having an idea of where you want to take your décor will be instrumental in finding a rug you love.
Step 1: Choosing a Design & Color That Inspires You
The first thing you need to do is to determine the mood you want to create in your room, e.g. formal or casual. This decision will guide you towards certain colors or patterns.
How Color and Design of Rugs Impact the Feel of a Room
Formal rugs can anchor a room with a calming effect
Casual and fun elements are great for the family room
Bold medallions make a dramatic statement
Elegant fine lines and subdued colors have a quiet pleasing effect
Vintage patterns are traditional way to reminisce about their time and place
Pure color are more formal and elegant
Abrash (blending of two or more colors) creates a broader color pallet and can be easier to decorate with
Rug patterns can work with the existing designs and fabrics in your room
Once you know the color and feel you are trying to create, the size of the Oriental or Persian rug you need will be your next decision. You’ll want to prioritize your rug purchases according to room size and importance. This process is like putting a puzzle piece together. Each rug acquired will lessen your choices for future rug selections.
