Read on to learn how carpet binding can help you design on a budget and what your options are.

How It Works:

Carpet binding (sometimes called rug binding) is the process of stitching the edges of a carpet remnant to make an area rug. A specialist uses an industrial strength sewing machine and a variety of binding tapes to create a neat edge. This prevents the carpet from unraveling at the ends, which can create a mess and destroy the fibers. Our carpet binding is guaranteed to last for a long time through everyday wear and tear. This includes low to moderate foot traffic, moving furniture, and children and pets.

Binding Options:

When you bring in your carpet remnants, you will be asked the following questions:

What binding tape do you prefer?

There are a number of binding tape options to choose from. Knowing the basic differences between them can make choosing the right one for you easier. Some of the common ones include:

  • Basic binding tape: This strong edge is made out of polyester. It is the most common choice, because it is affordable and can be applied fast. A handheld sewing machine is rolled over the taped edges to create a powerful seal. An industrial sewing machine can also be used.
  • Serging Tape: Very similar to binding tape, and just as affordable. The difference is in its appearance. Surging tape is recommended for more luxurious materials, as it looks a little more “polished.”
  • Traditional Surging: This is the priciest option, but it looks best for more expensive carpet types. The edges are finished with thread that is sewed tightly instead of tape, which creates a more finished look. This is the closest to what an expensive area rug would look like, but is still more affordable. It may take weeks to finish, so plan accordingly if you choose this option.

What size and shaped area rug do you want?
You can have your carpet remnant cut to any size and shape that you want. This is part of what makes carpet binding so wonderful. It opens up a wealth of design opportunities. Fit your area rug to any size room. Play with shapes to create interesting interior designs.
