If something seems to be missing in an otherwise well-decorated room, chances are an area rug will be your solution. If an area rug is on your wish list, don’t be afraid to spend a little extra to get exactly what you want. Rugs are a wise investment, providing years of service and pleasure.
Oriental rugs. These rugs have always been a symbol of wealth, and rightfully so, as they’re quite expensive. They’re a great investment, as their value never decreases and sometimes increases. The purchase of an Oriental rug should be preceded by careful study of the varieties available. Most are handmade. Silk Orientals are often woven with real gold threads, adding to the value. Wool Orientals are less expensive, though still a good investment.
Inlaid rugs. Here’s where your imagination can take over. Anything your mind can conjure, a good carpet designer can manifest. Doodle on a piece of paper until you come up with at least a semblance of what you want, and your designer can take it from there. Geometric shapes, florals, birds, stars and stripes, fans, your name or initials¾there are no rules. Pricing here again depends on the quality of the carpet and the complexity of the design.
In order to successfully blend multiple area rugs with bold patterns, there are important details to keep in mind. First, be aware of where a rug’s pattern repeat begins and ends. Lay several of the same style rugs out flat on the ground. If the repeat starts and ends in the same portion of each rug, this means they will match up seamlessly once strung together. On the other hand, if the pattern repeat is inconsistent among several of the same rugs, it’s best not to use it. A few styles that are usually simple to match up include: plaid, stripes, zigzags and large-scale botanicals.
