How to Choose an Oriental Rug

For many people, the world of Oriental carpet is mysterious and overwhelming. Here are a few simple pointers we've learned to give our customers. To Buy Rugs Online or from Store.

Where to Start

Floor Rug in VelvetBefore you begin, take a little time to think about size and color; it will save you a lot of time. Draw a rough sketch of your room with the dimensions noted and furniture placed. If you're shopping for a dining room rug, know the size of the table; you don't want your chairs falling off the edge of the rug when you back up from the table. For stair runners, count the number of risers (each step has a riser and tread). Most new rugs come in sizes from 2 feet by 3 feet to 10 feet by 14 feet-although some come in larger sizes. Runners are typically 30 inches wide. If you are Buying Rug Online then you should know the Rug Size.

Conventional wisdom says that decorating a room should start with the Oriental rug. After all, there are infinite choices in fabrics and paints and a well-chosen Oriental rug will outlast most everything else in the room. Well and fine, and great advice if you are starting from scratch. More often than not, however, a rug is being chosen for an existing space with established color and style. Taking a photo of the rooms is also helpful. There are more colors and designs in Oriental rugs to choose from than ever before. Nowadays Stores and Online Sites offer Variety of Rugs. At Jodhaa we have variety of Rugs in various Designes and Colours. Buy Rugs Online in Mumbai from Jodhaa at Best Price.

Once you know the size of the space and have color samples tucked under your arm, it's time for the bigger questions. How much will it cost? How do I judge quality of Rugs? Where do I buy Rugs from Online or from Store?

What to Look For

Buy Carpet in VelvetThe price of an Oriental rug is based on:

  1. Quality
  2. Country of origin
  3. Age
  4. Condition
  5. Decorative demand

Most people quite literally "get tied up in knots" judging the quality of Oriental rugs. There are more important things to judge by. The weave should be fine enough to clearly express the motifs of the design. A design may have less than 100 knots per square inch while a detailed floral pattern may require 300 or more. While tightness and regularity of weave are important, the quality of the wool determines the resilience and lasting patina of a rug. The quality and fastness of the dyes are also important.

In addition to the factors above, the demand and price for Oriental rugs is highly dependent on design and color trends. Rugs woven in those "hot" colors flew out of the store. Today, even the finest of them are selling for a fraction of their original price. Classic designs tend to retain their value reliably.

Simply stated, age and condition affect the value of used rugs. All other factors being equal, age will increase the value, and adverse condition (i.e. stains and wear) will decrease the value.
