One big advantage of a custom area rug is that you can have the
exact size you want instead of a store bought ready made area rug that only come in certain sizes.
Another advantage is that you
can choose from a wide variety of styles and colors. Many people will have a custom made area rug to add
style to a room. Others like the insulation provided by a area rug.
Area rugs can be used to protect a hardwood floor. Keep in mind that
traditional carpet (often used to make custom area rugs) may have a abrasive backing that can harm your floor. In this case,
you can have a soft cloth backing applied for an extra charge (usually $2-$3 per square foot).
Binding the edges
Binding is available in a number of styles and colors. The least expensive is synthetic usually
around $1.95 a lineal foot. You can also get binding made from cotton, leather and you can get extra wide binding.
