HOME - Rugs and carpets buying guide intro: practical and aesthetic side, contact email, informative links and privacy policy

BEFORE YOU BUY... - Buying carpet or rug based solely on its in-store appeal is a risky proposition. It pays to know exactly what you want to accomplish with it. All important factors - aesthetics, mood, appearance retention - have to be considered in the context of a particular room the rug is intended for. A bit of planning and creativity goes long way. And it needs to be guided with a solid, practical information.

 You can find needed information in this series of short articles: from rug/carpet construction and material properties, color/pattern effects and environmental factors, to label, warranty, quick buying checklist and care tips.
