Carpet Binding: Creating a custom rug out of your favorite carpet.
Having trouble getting the perfect carpet visual 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. Do you ever see 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 these brands and how they allow customers to create their own 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 prevents unraveling along with wear signs. Usually the binding fabric is made from polyester or cotton (sometimes sisal). The most common and affordable carpet binding is polyester. It depends on the type carpet you are wanting to make into a rug because not all bindings can be stitched on all types of carpets.
One of the fun aspects of customizing a rug is being able to pick virtually any color of binding you want. You can choose to match colors to your carpet style or even do accent colors. This allows for complete control over the smallest detail. Especially when it comes to the shape and size of the rug, you will want to be able to adjust to your needs. Standard sized rugs are made to be symmetric but oftentimes that does not work in every room. Some areas are uniquely set up or sized so this is where custom area rugs are a better option. They will 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.
Regular area rugs can tend to cost more so if budgeting plays a large impact on your rug choice, look into carpet bound rugs. This is a great way to get carpets for cheap. You will not only save money and time, but you will never have to settle. Scouring the stores for something that meets minimum standards is out of the question. With creating a custom rug out of your favorite carpet, you can instantly get exactly what you want. Brands like Stanton make the custom carpet process a breeze. On their website they have a special visualizer tool that lets you pick out the carpet style, color, finish, size and even backing. By selecting their “Create a Rug” option from their homepage, you get to choose and see exactly what you are buying. The perfect rug is just clicks away. Many other high-end companies offer a similar tool on their websites as well. As a company, Georgia Carpet Industries has the ability to bind any carpet style you want.
