Oriental Area Rugs

When you're looking for a way to add richness to a room, it's hard to beat an Oriental rug. Area rugs in general make a room feel warmer, and Oriental rugs have a decadent feel that comes from thousands of years of repeating colors and patterns.
Choosing an Oriental area rug can feel like an overwhelming task, but following simple steps will ensure you choose the right rug for your room. The first thing to consider is size: If you're looking for something to go up a staircase, make sure to choose a runner (one that's noticeably longer than it is wide) so you can tuck it into the stair and prevent tripping. A hallmark of Oriental rugs is their complex, often asymmetrical patterns; the larger the rug, the more repetition you'll see.
Oriental area rugs are available in handmade and machine-made varieties. Handmade rugs will be more expensive and unique while a machine-made rug can provide more rug for the same amount of money. Machine-made Oriental area rugs can be just as beautiful as hand-knotted rugs; it's simply a matter of deciding which features are most important to you.
Keep your Oriental area rugs looking great by taking proper care of them. Use a rug pad; it will provide extra padding, prevent your rug from scooting itself out of place and out from under your feet and afford extra protection to the bottom of the rug and the floor underneath it. A properly sized rug pad will fit under the rug and be almost unnoticeable; it should go almost all the way to each edge of the rug. Vacuum your area rug regularly -- once a week for low-traffic areas and twice a week or more for high-traffic hallways. Vacuuming removes dirt and prevents it from being ground into the delicate fibers of the rug.
Before choosing an Oriental rug, decide what material will best suit your room. Silk and art silk (rayon) rugs have a luxurious look and soft feel, but they won't stand up well to heavy use. Wool and wool-blend Oriental area rugs are more durable by nature than silk rugs and will withstand heavier use.
