Functional Use of Rugs – First off, the buyer needs to determine the immediate purpose that the rug will serve. Is it to serve primarily as insulation or to dampen sound, is it meant to be used as a decorative item, or possibly both? Is it for use at home or in a business environment? Is it for a formal or informal space that the person wishes to create?

Is it desirable to use a room-size rug, or perhaps, several smaller ones?  Is it to be used for the floor or as a form of textile art and a wall decoration? Perhaps a table covering, or a throw? Will it be used in a high traffic zone? These are all vital considerations in determining which way to go.
