There are a variety of area rugs and each has their own characteristics. Flat weave, hand-knotted, hand-tufted hand-hooked and machine-made are the primary categories.
Flat Weave : This rug is constructed without a pile. Colored weft yarns are woven through warps to create the pattern. Some varieties of flat weave are kilims, dhurries and soumaks. Needlepoint is another type of flat weave that is made by weaving the colored yarns through a pre-made scrim.
Hand-Knotted : This rug is constructed with fine threads of colored yarn that are hand-knotted through a warp/weft backing and then sheared to create a pile. Two varieties of actual knot styles are Persian and Turkish.
Hand-tufted and Hand-hooked : These rugs are produced with a tufting gun that works like an oversized sewing needle. It pushes and pulls threads of yarn through a scrim – a pre-woven grid foundation. With a hooked rug, the loops of yarn are left intact to form a knobby loop pile. In a tufted rug, the tops of the loops are sheared to expose the thread ends for a softer and plusher cut pile.
Machine-made : In this process, the rugs are woven on mechanical looms. There are many types of mechanical looms, each with specific capabilities as to the type of design and textures it can create.

- If possible, buy the rug first and make it your focal point, then dress the area with furniture.
- If space permits, the furniture should sit on the outskirts of the rug, not on top of it.
- Rotate area rugs periodically to minimize the wear and tear to any one part.
- If furniture lies on the rug, try to occasionally move everything one or two inches in order to keep it from permanently crushing the carpet fibers and leaving depressions in the rug.
