As the popularity of hardwood floors has grown, so has the demand for fabricated and custom rugs. At Home Carpet One we have the expertise to help you create whatever size and shape area rug you want for your home. Whether you want to select one of our in-stock wool Wilton carpets or special order a sisal rug and border it with leather, we can do it all. To get started just tell us the carpet you want and the size and we will walk through with you the options on finishing the rug, which include binding, serging, cotton borders, linen borders, leather borders and even other carpet borders. Any type of finish you want for a rug, can also be done as a custom runner for your stairs.
