Oriental Rugs - What You Need To Know When Buying An Oriental Rug

Oct 9, 2007
There are a couple of different places that you can purchase an oriental rug. The places that most people get them are from dealers or at auctions. When you are buying an oriental rug the price will vary for each rug depending on the fiber used, the dyes used, the design on the rug, the number of knots per square inch, the age of the rug and the country of origin that the rug was made in.

Before you buy an oriental rug you want to make sure that it will blend in with the room in your home that you want it for. One helpful way to find the perfect rug is to take a picture along of the room it is going in when you are shopping for the rug. This will help when you are buying your oriental rug from a dealer.

You can get your rug online too. Many of the sites will provide you with a free buyers guide. This will give you much needed information about the quality of the rugs, styles, color, design, and even give you tips for selecting the oriental rug.

Some of the sites online will be good for getting the oriental rug that you want at a cheaper or discounted price. Most of the sites will have a money back guarantee and free shipping. You need to make sure that you go through the rules and regulations very carefully before you buy any rug. If you find a company that has restocking charges or other unusual charges, then you want to avoid them.

It is always a good idea to educate yourself on oriental rugs before you start shopping for one. This will help you learn more about the different styles and qualities that are available. One really good way to get what you want is to find a store that specializes in oriental rugs. They will have a wide range of sizes and designs. The best companies to buy from are the ones that rely on their repeat customers for their success. You also want to make sure that you find out about their cleaning and restoration services before you buy.

You need to make sure that you only deal with reputable dealers. Most of the dealers that sell oriental rugs will let you have a trial period of two weeks with the rug in your home. They will also tell you all about their terms and conditions before they sell it to you. One good way to tell if the dealer is reputable is to find out if they are a member of ORRA (Oriental Rug Retailer Association). The dealers who are members of this association are the reputable ones.

When you will be purchasing an oriental rug at an auction you want to make sure that you look at the condition of the rug. Don't place a bid on any auction until you have checked this. You should also stay away from the buy now auctions. If a rug has moth damage, holes, spots, stains and missing ends or edges, you don't want to buy it for any reason.
