The best type of floor for a Persian rug is hardwood. With a Persian rug for contrast, it adds beauty, color and attractive appearance.

Color matching is imperative when considering any form of floor covering.
This plays a very important role when purchasing an Oriental rug. Upholstery and curtain colors are crucial in choosing the right Persian rug because you will need to create a theme where there is the desired contrast without clashing of colors. It is good to go for a dominant color rug based on the colors of the curtains, painted furniture, the walls, uncovered floor section and upholstery although this does not mean you should compromise on the tone of the flooring.

The price, size, quality and country of origin are very important too when choosing an Oriental rug. Original Persian rugs are not always cheap but this is because their quality is high, they are durable and classy. There are many machine made imitations sold cheaply today but I am sure you will do your research well and buy a quality Persian rug from a trusted source.
