Color is an important factor when deciding on an area rug. It is a matter of personal taste as you might want a rug with subdued coloring that ties all the colors of the room together without competing with existing design elements. Or you may want a eye-catching oriental carpet rug that becomes the center show piece of the room. Whether you want a light colored rug to make a room look larger or a deeper color to add richness and warmth to a room the choice is yours.
When buying a wool area rug you often get what you pay for; if the rug is handmade you will definitely be shelling out more money than you would for a contemporary wool rug that was made in a factory. If you don't have issues with the pricing of wool-rugs then it would be wise to select a handmade rug for your house. If you want to get a good looking wool area rug and save money you should get a machine-made area rug.
If no samples are readily available take several photos in different light conditions with you. This will help give you an idea of the color combinations that will work while you shop for that perfect area rug. If you have a sample of the hardwood floor take a piece with you. Because the rug will be placed on the wood floor it's a great way to see what the effect is. Be sure it has some of the warm or cool elements in the rug to accent the wood floor depending on the look you are going for. The style of rug will play a important roll in the finished look of the room. Look at the room and the type of decor you have. Rooms with antiques will beg for a Oriental rug but be careful because they may be to busy for the room. You will find that braided rugs work well for a traditional modern looking room.
No matter what style of wool rug you have you should always take steps in order to prevent it from getting worn out. Do not put a special wool rug in an area of your house that is frequently walked through or that gets trampled. Be sure to put it in a location where everyone is able to see it yet in an area that will prevent it from getting worn out. If you are really serious about preventing your rug from getting damaged you could even consider buying rug-pads in order to ensure that you keep the bottom of your rug from getting torn.
