Do not buy these carpets for dowry!

  • Belgian carpets:

These carpets are very thin and for this reason their backs are covered with latex so that they stick to the floor. But this same glue makes it harder to wash these carpets, and the most important thing about these carpets is that Belgian carpets change shape and disappear after washing. If you like these carpets, get them for a part of the house where there is not much traffic and the carpet gets less dirty.

  • Shag carpets:

These carpets may be modern and have an attractive appearance, but the long piles of these carpets are soon separated from the carpet and the carpet loses its appearance, and if you have a pet, their claws get stuck in these carpets.

What size dowry carpet should we buy?

The dimensions of the dowry carpet depend on the size of the house. When buying a carpet, measure the area where you are going to spread the carpet. Choose a carpet that does not fill the entire area. The size of the carpet should be 20 to 50 cm away from the wall. As we said, the exact measurement of the place where you are going to spread your carpet is one of the important points that you should pay attention to when buying a new bridal dowry carpet. It is better to choose a carpet that does not fill the entire area, because it does not have an interesting effect and makes the house look small. Also, avoid spreading small carpets for large halls. For big years, you can use smaller carpets such as 6 meters instead of large carpets such as 12 meters. To choose the dimensions of the carpet, consider these points:

  1. Use one carpet for each separate space, using several carpets makes the space look crowded.
  2. The size of the carpet should be such that the front legs of the sofa are placed on the carpet, but the rear legs of the sofa are not placed on the carpet.
  3. For large halls, if you use two carpets, put 50 cm between the rugs.
