If you are in the process of selecting a high-quality area rug from Handcraft Rugs, you may have found yourself overwhelmed by the vast array of available options and styles. Read on to learn some tips for choosing the best area rug for your specific needs.

Size

If you are shopping to an area rug to serve the entire room, you may want to follow the rule of choosing one that is two feet shorter than the smallest wall of the room. If you are placing the area rug underneath a table, ensure it is large enough to extend at least 18 inches around it. On the other hand, if you are shopping for a rug to place in an entryway, measure to ensure that the rug is at least as wide as the doorway. In this case, you should also choose a low-profile rug to make certain that it will not snag when the door opens or closes.

Budget

When you purchase an area rug, you are investing in a high-quality product that has the potential to last a lifetime. That being said, many home and business owners choose to look for an area rug of the best quality they can afford. While handmade Persian rugs may be considered expensive, for example, they are constructed to last.
