How to Pick a High-Quality Rug

A beautiful handmade rug can be the perfect addition to a home. Whether it’s in your bedroom, office or the main living space, a handmade rug sets the tone for the room and makes it feel immediately stylish, warm and welcoming. A handmade rug is also an investment — it should be super high-quality and made to last so you can enjoy it for years to come. To some extent, choosing a handmade rug boils down to personal taste, but you can also take measures to ensure that you purchase one that you will love and that will last.


You should always buy the best rug that you can afford. That means looking for good-quality natural materials like wool and silk that will stand up to a little wear and tear and even look better over time. These fabrics develop their own sheen over time due to light and air exposure instead of deteriorating like some fabrics. You’ll feel great about paying for a rug that you know will last instead of having to replace it every few years.


You’ll want to choose a rug that is just right for the size of your room. The best rule of thumb is to pick one that is about two feet shorter than the smallest wall in the room. That way it fills the space but doesn’t overtake it. Having space on all four sides of the rug that expose the flooring is essential.


The style of rug you want will mostly depend on what room you are decorating and the colors and themes you are trying to match. It’s important to pick something that is going to make you happy every time you look at it — high-quality rugs will immediately jump out at you in any room. They accentuate a space and make it feel more comfortable and more elegant.

In general, handmade silk and wool rugs are the highest quality and will last in your home for a long time to come. It’s worth it to invest in a luxurious rug that will make your home more beautiful and withstand the test of time.
