Buying a Persian rug will be a decision that will help you complete your home. The presence of a Persian style rug expounds the many benefits that are contained within the fabric, the weave and the fundamental story behind this piece of art. As well as being a great investment, a Persian rug is capable of combining all of the practical reasons that one would wish from the purchase of a rug along with the added benefits that an original work of art can bring – what a conversation starter!

Let’s dive a little deeper and discuss the top 6 reasons that we believe are at the top of the list when someone buys a Persian rug.



One of the best things about Persian rugs is that they can be used in a variety of ways. They can be hung on the wall as tapestries, used as floor mats or runners, or even placed atop furniture like coffee tables and dressers. No matter how you choose to use them, Persian rugs add a touch of luxury and sophistication to any home décor.

We have covered some ideas on how these rugs can be used to complete a room in a house in previous articles. What is evident is that whether the room in questions is modern, traditional, rustic or any other style: a Persian rug is certainly capable of blending its unique design with your room to compliment or contrast other furniture and fittings. It is just a question of finding the ideal rug for you and your room and then having fun designing the room around the rug.



Persian rugs are not only beautiful – they’re also a great investment. Unlike many other home décor items, fine rugs can last for decades with proper care. And, as they age, their value usually increases. So, if you’re looking for a piece of home décor that will not only look great now but also hold its value over time, a Persian rug is the perfect choice.

You may wish to look into whether your home insurance covers the value of your rug, especially if you are not sure of it’s worth (for example – if it a rug that has been handed down through family generations and has not been recently valued). RL rose can offer a rug valuation service on request.



Each and every Persian rug is an authentic work of art. Unlike mass-produced rugs that are made in factories, these rugs are handmade by skilled artisans using traditional methods that have been passed down from generation to generation. As such, each rug is unique – you’ll never find two exactly alike. In this respect, consider the Persian rug not just as furniture but as artwork that should be cared for and displayed as such. A Persian rug can be enjoyed in both ways at the same time if treated with care and respect.

In addition to their beauty and uniqueness, Persian rugs also have a practical purpose – they help keep your home warm and cosy in the colder months. Unlike bare floors, which can feel chilly and cold, rugs help to insulate your home and trap heat. The way that they are constructed along with the nature of the sheep’s wool make the perfect combination to provide an insulating, soft layer that is comfortable and warm underfoot as well as pleasing to the eye.

Persian rugs are typical made from wool that is coloured red (as well as other shades) which is a warm and inviting colour. So, if you’re looking for a way to stay warm this winter, these rugs are the perfect solution.



Classical and timeless. This is the nature of a Persian rug. If something is classical and timeless then it does not go out of favour or fashion but has its place ad infinitum as long as it is in the right setting. Unlike other types of rugs that may go out of fashion after a few years, these rugs are always in style.

So, if you’re looking for a piece of home décor that you can enjoy for many years to come, these rugs are the perfect choice – the key is to place the rug in the right room in the right way and to create a theme that focuses on the rug and allows the other furniture and accessories in the room to augment its beauty.



Last but not least, Persian rugs make great conversation starters. Whenever someone sees your Persian rug for the first time, they’re sure to ask about it. Where did you get it? How long have you had it? What’s the story behind it? You’ll never grow tired of telling the story of the origins of the rug – and your guests will never tire of hearing it. As an investment into the story behind your rug, make sure that you dedicate some time to learning about your rug’s history and origin so that when someone does ask about it, you are properly informed.

So, if you’re looking for a way to start conversations and make new friends, a rug is the perfect solution.

So, there you have it – the top six reasons to buy a Persian rug. As you can see, they are not only beautiful and unique, but they’re also practical and a great investment. So, what are you waiting for? Start shopping for your perfect Persian rug today! You won’t regret it.
