Carpet Binding: Creating a custom rug out of your favorite carpet.
Having trouble finding the perfect area rug for your home or office area? Maybe there is a certain space that can only have rugs but you can't seem to find one that fits the decor or maybe you just miss the plushness and warmth of traditional carpet. Or maybe you've found a carpet roll that would be perfect for a rug, but you don't want the whole room carpeted. Well, with brands like Masland, Stanton, and Fabrica you never have to wish for the impossible. Carpet binding has become a large part of how these brands do business. With carpet binding, these well-loved brands can allow customers to create their own custom area rugs in sizes and shapes that work for their unique spaces. Rug binding involves wrapping a strip of fabric around the edge of the carpet and stitching it in place. This creates a polished look and also prevents unraveling along, loose strings and other signs of wear. Usually the binding fabric is made from polyester or cotton (sometimes sisal) in a color that either matches the carpet or contrasts against it to create interest. The most common and affordable carpet binding is polyester, which is a synthetic material that ages gracefully and easily conforms to the shape of the edge of the carpet. The type of binding used will depend on the type carpet you are wanting to make into a rug because not all bindings can be stitched on all types of carpets. Fortunately, at Georgia Carpet, we know which bindings can be used with which rugs and we're happy to help you through the process.
Custom Rug Colors and Shapes
One of the most fun aspects of customizing a rug is being able to pick virtually any color of binding you want. You can choose to match the color of the binding to the color of your carpet for a subdued, monochromatic look, or you can choose a bold accent color to draw attention to the rug and the design on it. Being able to choose your own binding color gives you complete control over the way the rug looks, right down to the smallest detail. When it comes to the shape and size of the rug, custom rugs can be adjusted to your needs. Standard sized rugs are made to be symmetric, but oftentimes won't work in your space. For rooms that aren't rectangular in shape, a custom area rug may be a better option. A custom rug can be cut and bound to fit anywhere because they are designed for your space. Even for the oddest rooms, a rug can be made to blend seamlessly with your area. Gone are the restraints of standard sizes and shapes, customization gives you the freedom to express what you want.
Affordable Area Rugs
Wondering how much does carpet binding cost? You might think that a custom made rug would cost more than a store-bought rug, but you'd be wrong. Regular area rugs can tend to cost more than bound carpets, so if budgeting plays a large impact on your rug choice, look into custom carpet bound rugs. Taking advantage of carpet edge binding is a great way to get beautiful, long-lasting area rugs for cheap. You will not only save money and time by choosing a custom bound carpet rug, but you will never have to settle on a size that doesn't fit your space or a look that doesn't suit your decor. Scouring the stores for something that meets minimum standards is out of the question when you can access tons of different custom made area rugs right at Georgia Carpet.
