  1. Cami Halılarının Camiyi Tamamlayıcı Olması Gerekir

    Cami halıları kurumsal bir firmadan alınmadan önce mutlaka caminin deseni ve renkleri incelenmeli, bu şekilde bir karara vararak en doğru tercih yapılmalıdır.
    Örneğin camideki avizenin ve duvarların işçiliği, celi sülüs ile yazılan dualar ve ayetlerin renkleri düşünüldüğünde en uyumlu halıyı seçmek daha doğru olur.
    Bu şekilde bir uyum caminin hem daha içten ibadet edilecek huzur dolu bir yer olmasını,
    hemde gelen turistler tarafından göz alıcı ve
    değer verilen bir yer olduğunu göstermek için önemlidir.
    Zira ibadethanelere verilen özen dine verilen değeri gösterecek ve insanlar da bu şekilde
    izlenim bırakacaktır.

  2. Cami Halısı Nasıl Seçilir?
    Camiler gün içerisinde onlarca kişinin uğradığı ibadet mekanları olduğu için, içerisinin dizaynına
    dikkat etmek gerekir. Cami halısı, kürsü, kitaplıklar ve ayakkabılıklar gibi daha birçok şey bu nokta hesaba katılarak ayarlandığı vakitte daha
    güzel sonuçlar elde edilecektir. Dikkat edilmesi
    gereken en önemli husus cami halısının kolay kolay kirlenmeyen koyu renklerden seçilmesidir.
    Bir de halının dokunduğu kumaş evlerde seçilen halılardan daha kaliteli
    olmalıdır. Örneğin naylon bir halı daha çabuk kirleneceği için tercih
    edilmesi doğru olmaz. Aynı zamanda sürekli ibadet ve secde edildiği için insanların ciltlerini tahriş etmeyecek iplerle
    dokunan halılar olması gerekir. Bunlar dikkate alındığında daha güzel sonuçlar elde
