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.
Size. Depending on the layout of your home you may need several kitchen area rugs. The most common places for kitchen rugs are in front of the sink stove and/or door areas. This is also where the most traffic occurs. Some people choose a large area rug to cover a larger area of the floor rather than buying several smaller kitchen rugs. It's a good idea to know the dimensions of your kitchen so that you know how much space a particular rug is going to use. Non-Slip. Since kitchens tend to be built with non-carpeted flooring a non-slip rug can help it stay in place. What good is a rug if it's able to slide around on the floor? That's going to cause more of a nuisance than being helpful.
You can buy round area rugs that are handmade as well as factory-made. The handmade rugs are often more durable than the factory made ones but both should be able to withstand a lot of pressure before they split apart. The downside to buying a handmade round rug is that they can cost you some serious cash-money. It is recommended to always check out handmade rugs if you have the budget for them. However most people do not have the budget to buy a round handmade rug and instead always check out the factory-made round-rugs.
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.
