Know What Fits

This should be a no-brainer, but you’d be surprised with how many people spend the money on an oriental rug, only to find out that it doesn’t fit as soon as they get home. Measuring is a must! Once you decide on the room that you would like to put the oriental rug in, measure out the dimensions. This will help you avoid a lot of unnecessary trouble.


There are nearly infinite styles of oriental rugs to choose from, so you don’t have to worry about one that fits what you’re looking for, but it is important to make sure that it will complement the look of the room that will be its new home.

Take Time

One of the most important tips that we can give you is to make sure that you take time selecting the rug that you want. Oriental rugs are long-lasting and become a main part of your home’s decoration, so you don’t want to have any regrets in your investment. Don’t buy the first one that catches your eye, take the time to go through your options until one truly looks perfect. We promise you won’t regret it.

Once you’ve found your oriental rug, the first thing that you’re going to want to do is purchase a rug mat. This will keep the rug in place and prevent slipping, which can lead to stretching and ultimately tearing. It is also good for your safety so that you don’t take a fall when it moves under your feet. Next, you’re going to want to keep it maintained. Make sure that you avoid having direct sunlight on it to prevent the colors from fading, vacuum it often, and avoid using any cleaning materials like bleach or soap.
