How should one choose a carpet and rug dealer? After your decision to buy a carpet or rug, the next consideration would be your budget. Of course, this would depend on how much of your floor you intend to cover. After those two basic considerations, the rest would be up to you: what material?
Oriental, Persian, antique, new, original or copy? For display and enjoyment, or just to cover the floor? Which part of your home or building will you use the carpet on?

One big consideration in choosing a carpet and rug dealer is whether the carpets produced are hand-made or machine-made. There's a certain aura or mystique behind hand-made

carpets and rugs, but it does not necessarily mean that factory-made carpets are inferior. Hand-made carpets are said to be
more durable and appreciate in value over time. These are also more expensive, and one must search for a trusted dealer. Factory-made carpets are made with the purpose of covering the entire flooring of one's home or building.

While having such a "general purpose," they still provide you with a lot of options in color, patterns or styles, and textures, allowing you to match your carpet choice with the rest of the building. Such "flexibility" of choices is not available for most hand-made carpets or rugs; but you


can find it with a carpet and rug dealer.

Additional service that you may look out for in your carpet and rug dealer would be maintenance of the carpet that you buy. At the very least, your dealer should tell you about the proper care of your carpet. Different materials may require different maintenance procedures. For factory-made carpets, the carpet and rug dealer may even offer maintenance services for the carpets.
