Custom Rugs and Runners
Having trouble finding the perfect area rug or stair runner? Can’t quite find the right color, right size, or best shape? With our custom rug and runner program, we can create the perfect rug for you with a simple 3-5 step system:
Step 1: Choose Your Size and Shape –
By making rugs and runners from broadloom carpeting, the options are piratically unlimited in regards to size and shape. There are really only two things that could possibly limit you and they depend on the carpet you choose. These two minor limiters are the carpet roll width (most come 12′ wide, a few come 13’2″ wide, and even fewer come 15′ wide) and the pattern size (your Project Consultant will guide you on what tweaks to make based on the pattern size of your selected field carpet). If your rug will not use all of the width of the roll needed, your Project Consultant can help you utilize the remaining carpet for coordinating runners and smaller rugs for other areas of the home.
A great way to help visualize the size and shape you are looking for is to mark where you would want the furthest points (typically corners) of the rug and/or runner to be with something like magazines or painters tape. That will make it easy to measure for the size you are looking for and help you use them as anchors for when visualizing a square, rectangle, oval, or octagon shaped rug in your space!
Step 2: Choose Your ‘Field’ Carpet –
This is the carpet that will be used to make the largest part of your new area rug and/or runner. This is typically the one that will have a pattern so your carpet will create the impact you are looking for. Your Project Consult can help you narrow down our huge selection based on the colors, feel, performance, and style you are looking for.
Step 3: Choose Your ‘Border’ Carpet or Edging Material –
Now to frame out your beautiful new area rug and/or runner! This step is optional as it isn’t always the best option depending on what look you want to achieve. We can make borders from coordinating cut pile carpeting which can be a great way to tie in accent colors.
We can also wrap the edges of the rug and/or runner with a multitude of fabrics in addition to suede and leather!
Step 4: Choose Your Edge Finishing or Binding –
If you chose to a fabric or leather edging as shown in the above picture, this step is already completed! If you choose to border your rug or runner with another carpet or not have a frame effect, you will need to work with your Project Consultant to choose your edge finishing (also referred to as binding). Our options include:
- edge wrapping with fabric or leather
- serge binding (common of oriental style area rugs)
- tape binding (common of thicker pile area rugs)

Step 5: Choose Your Fringe –
This step is also optional. We have fringes of multiple lengths and tones to give you that final touch.
