Should I Repair or Replace My Rug?

Has your Persian or Oriental rug seen better days? Over time, these things happen and even the highest quality rugs can get worn down when walked on day in and day out. If you haven’t been able to take care of your rug along the way, you might be considering if it’s worth it, or even possible to repair your rug in its current condition, or if it’s better just to replace it all together and get something new.

While both are great options for keeping your home looking new and fresh, we always recommend at least getting a professional rug repair service to take a look at the rug before replacing it. It shouldn’t cost anything to get the estimate, and they will know best whether the rug is salvageable or not. If the repair isn’t possible, the service might have some great recommendations on new Persian rugs to check out as a replacement.

Consider The Sentimental Value

When it comes to handmade rugs especially, each one is a unique piece of art, and no two are the same. The rug you are looking to repair might have additional meaning for you beyond its monetary value, perhaps it was a gift from someone who is no longer with us, or maybe you purchased it on a trip far away and it has fond memories attached to it. If this is the case, there’s nothing wrong with spending a little extra to get it repaired. Sentimental value is important too, and replacing the rug might not give you the same satisfaction as a repair.

Consider Replacement Options

Sometimes the rug really is all about aesthetics. When there’s no sentimental value and the rug doesn’t make sense to repair, picking out a new rug can be one of the most enjoyable parts of this process. Whether you’re looking for a similar style, or looking to bring a totally new color or energy into the home, we highly recommend a handmade rug because of its superior construction and completely unique aspect from rug to rug. There’s nothing more rewarding than having something completely one of a kind in your home to truly own. Check out our online inventory for inspiration.
