Persian carpets are investments. Be prepared to pay well over your typical rug price. Judge the quality of the rug by looking at the weave and make sure it is fine enough to clearly express the design. Look at the ticket on the rug and make sure it no fewer than 100 knots per square inch for a geometric design. Some floral patterns with more detailing can require 300 or more knots. Your dealer should be able to provide you with this information so you can get an idea of the quality of the rug.

4. Keep the setting monochromatic. The walls, sofas, draperies, pillows and flooring in this space all have a similar orange cast that allows the rug to take center stage. Although there’s a hint of pattern in the textiles, it remains in the background.Take your rugs to a local rug cleaner to keep them looking great

This room got pumpkin right too. Try using different shades of the same base color for a layered look that's pleasing to the eye.

Where to StartFirst evaluate your area rug’s size, weave and thickness. This will help determine which rug pad material is appropriate. The quantity of rug pads on the market is almost dizzying, and it’s easy to become overwhelmed. Here’s a brief guide.Small rugs: For 3-foot by 5-foot and smaller rugs, a thin, nonskid rug pad is recommended. This is especially true if the rug is in a high-traffic area. A thinner rug pad is ideal to prevent a sudden and brief height change that can pose a tripping hazard. Large rugs: Any rug that’s 8 feet by 10 feet or larger and not prone to slipping may be fine with a rug pad that doesn’t have a nonskid component to it, such as a felt pad. The felt will protect the floor and assist in keeping the rug in place. Usually a ¼-inch or ⅜-inch pad is adequate. Some people who like extra cushioning go for a ½-inch-thick pad, but that thickness borders on a bit too much.Thin rugs: Flat-weave rugs, such as kilims, don’t typically lay flat; they tend to curl at the corners. Thin rugs will do best with a rug pad that’s a combination of felt and rubber combination, either ⅛ or ¼ inch thick, depending on how much cushioning you want.Thick rugs: Heftier rugs, such as plush Orientals, will do well with a ¼-inch- or ⅜-inch-thick rug pad. If a rug is thick (½ inch or greater), then a too-thick rug pad may be overkill and can be a tripping hazard due to the level change between floor and rug.
