Area Rugs: How to Create a Custom Look in Your Home

One of the biggest advantages to a custom cut to fit rug is the ability to select the size that is most appropriate for the space. Some spaces are more unique and may require a special fit than standard size area rugs. Think of an area rug like an outfit. You wouldn’t want to wear something that is too small or wear something too large and frumpy. You would wear something that fits you well and compliments your frame – the same applies to an area rug. Getting the right size rug can make an impact on your space. A floor covering that is too large can engulf the room where as a rug that is too small is size will not give the room enough coverage or visual weight.
For spaces with angled walls and funky shapes there is a more tailored approach. You can create a unique shape area rug that is custom cut to fit.

  • Style & Color: There are almost endless possibilities when it comes to style and color options. For all custom projects, samples are a must to compare color, quality, texture and feel. 
  • Form & Function: Consider the function of the space. Is this rug for a Living Room, Dining Room, Kitchen, Entryway or Hallway? Is it low, medium or high traffic area?  This will help determine the height of the carpeting that is best suited for the space. 
  • Measure Twice, Cut Once: When it comes to measuring for the custom rug there are a few things to consider.  Consider how much space you want around the room. If you are looking to create a sitting space consider the layout of the furniture. Do you want to create a seating area within the space? Painters tape is usually safe way to mark where and how you want the rug to be shaped. Try this if you need more visualization!
