Oriental area rugs can include Persian ones and were originally made in China. Now they can come from rug-makers in India, Iran, and Romania as well. Since these areas have low labor costs this style of rug is of a great quality at an equally great value. They are resilient and durable and will add a sense of luxury to any area. They can be hand-knotted, hand woven, or hand loomed. They can also be more affordable when they're made using a combination of both handcrafted and machine made techniques. The can be made even more affordable when they're completely machine loomed. These can be so well made that they appear as handsome as handmade rugs.
If you're using an area rug in a room, don't cover your floor completely. Your original floors will make a nice border to your rug. Even when you want to use a large rug, subtract at least 9-12 inches from your baseboards so that some of your flooring will show through. Finally, always use a non-ski rug pad underneath area rugs to prevent movement of the rug. The rug pad should be about 2 inches smaller than the rug so that it doesn't show through.
There are several different kinds of rug pads for different types of floors and floor covering like thick rugs and oriental rugs for any type of flooring, cushions and carpet liners for hardwood, bamboo and ceramic tile floors, non-skid for organic hard floors and pads for outdoor patio, porch or deck floors among others.
