What are the benefits of area rug binding?
binding is the
easiest and least expensive method of finishing a carpet
edge. Binding refers to the wrapping of a strip
of fabric, usually polyester or cotton, around the edge of a rug and stitching
it in place by a carpet-binding machine. Benefits include the low
cost and extensive color palette of binding, making it easy to match any carpet,
so the edge blends appropriately.
Alternative to replacing rugs
rug is a family heirloom that, although worn, you can’t bear the thought of
replacing. Other times, rugs, such as
Persians or Orientals, can be very expensive to replace. Take it to our rug binding department, we’ll
cut and reshape it to create scatter-rugs, and you'll always have it with
you. It’s also an excellent way to use
leftover remnants from a carpet installation.
Binding for custom area rugs
Binding will let you create a rug with a logo, greeting, or some other
special occasion. It’s also an excellent complement to stock rugs; they come in
standard shapes and sizes, but rooms aren't perfect squares. There are door sills, bay windows, moldings,
and baseboards with which to contend. If you see something you love but won’t
fit, buy it anyway and take it to us for resizing.
