Why should you get a custom rug?

When homeowners are looking at area rug types, one of the most common questions we hear is: “What size rug do I need?” We’ve been supplying carpets and rugs across Naperville, Lisle, and Wheaton since way back in 1957, so it’s safe to say it’s a question we’ve heard more than once, and our answer is almost always the same: “Why not get a custom rug?” Going custom with your rugs instead of off-the-rack means achieving the perfect size, and further customization options help make the final product truly special.

Why do people love custom rugs?

  • Limitless size and shape options
    • With numerous shapes and sizes available, you’ll be able to fit your custom rug perfectly around the space you need it for.

  • Over 10,000 color and style variations
    • From a vast spectrum of colors to an extensive array of available designs, your custom carpet can look exactly how you imagined.

  • Dozens of options for finishing the edges
    • From cost-effective binding through luxurious fringing, you can decide on the ideal edge profile by going custom.

  • Cost effectiveness
    • Instead of buying other coverings to complete the room or going with something needlessly expensive, use a custom rug to cut down costs.

What benefits come with a custom rug?

Custom rugs are something that some people might consider an unnecessary expense — until they take a closer look at the advantages such furnishings provide. Fitting your custom rug around the exact width, length, and shape that suits your space is going to be enormously helpful.

People often forget how tough it can be to make things look perfectly put together with an off-the-rack rug — you’ll generally find that such placement looks a bit lop-sided. With a custom rug, you’ll even be able to color-match with your current furniture or decorations to make sure everything comes together nicely.

You’ll also be able to customize the thermal resistance (R-value) of your new rug. If you live somewhere colder or need to lay the rug over wood floors, you’ll want to go for a higher R-value. If warmth isn’t such a factor, a lower R-value will be preferable.
