What to look for when buying an Afghan rug

Afghan rugs can certainly add a certain charm to a room. You may have even seen them as flying carpets in films. Take the following considerations into account when buying an Afghan rug.

Basics

The basic aspects of buying an Afghan rug can help you to weed out those which you do not need. You should consider some of these basics before you waste a trip to find out about these simple details. Note that you can head to a rug shop, or other carpet or furniture store, online and locally to find some of these beautiful rugs. Choosing the right size You should first approach the size of the rug. Make sure that you take care of the size of the rug, or at least establish a working range, as this can be a time-saver when you are choosing a rug. You don't want to buy a rug which is too big or small, after all. Measure the room where the rug will go, and take a look at the common sizes of Afghan rugs to identify what will work the best. Choosing the right colour The other major part of the basics is the colour. This will not be as direct as the size of the rug, as that is purely quantitative. However, this can also cost you time. Imagine that if you are looking at "red" rugs in the store. Will cherry or burgundy work? Will the other colours work or not in the room? Prepare and identify the colour coordination possibilities which will work.

Finding the right rug

It has the size and the colours you want - what's next? Keep your options open. While you should go ahead on the "dream rug," so to speak, it doesn't hurt to keep looking around a bit. This is especially warranted online, as you can look through dozens of options which may suit your needs. Quality Also look at the quality of the rug. This may be linked to the store, who can vouch for its quality, but you may need to research the manufacturer. Other items like a warranty may apply. Final word Take some time to look at different Afghan rugs. Once you have found a great rug which is perfect for your needs, you might be on your way to have a great rug for your home.
