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.

If you are fabricating a rug or a custom cut runner, there are several different ways to finish the edge of the carpet. Below you will find images to illustrate the differences between the basic types of finishes we offer.

Polyester binding

Comes in a variety of colors. This is most similar to how you see carpet samples bound.

Polyester Serging

Most frequently selected and provides a more finished look.

Narrow cotton binding

Offers fewer color choices than the polyester version. It provides a very clean finish.

Wide cotton borders

Allows you the opportunity for a more sophisticated look.  There are many other wide border finishes available in cotton, linen and other materials.

Wide leather borders

These borders are a great option and perhaps the most durable of all rug finishes.
