Trusted sources would be dealers who have been around awhile with a good track record with the area rug business. At all costs stay away from the bankruptcy sales or going out of business sales. Even if you purchase an area rug in the country of origin it is still no guarantee of any savings or the quality of the rugs, as most of the best examples of the rugs will be saved and used in the export trade leaving less quality rugs for you to purchase in the local markets.
Purchasing Oriental area rugs, antique or new machine made or a beautiful hand knotted still requires a degree of knowledge and awareness on the person that is purchasing the area rug. If you plan on buying a high-quality rug for a serious investment you should first study the type of area rug you are looking for in great detail and what is available from different retail sources before you make a final decision on a rug. True quality is usually apparent more or it might be less self-evident. A fine area rug will contain a particular luminous look and the design should have a crisp and clear look and not have a blurred appearance. The rugs color will be rich and vibrant and will not be muddy and dull in appearance.
Choosing an area rug is quite a challenge considering the vast sizes, shapes, colors, fabrics, and designs. You must consider the purpose the rug will serve whether it will provide a splash of color/design for a small room or a great deal of color/design for a large space. If you're fortunate enough to be able to start with a blank palette, then you can choose a rug that pleases you and build the room around its colors and designs.
Your selection of the basic stock area rugs and machine-made replicas would be the Oriental, traditional Persian and Turkish area rugs as well as the genuine articles. Natural fiber flooring area rugs can also be found in the form of rugs, runners, or full room sized rugs, which can be found at retailers or online stores that sell the wall-to-wall natural flooring.
