Custom Design Rugs Don’t Need to be Expensive

Stanton Carpet Linus Shilling

The term custom design rug could mean many things.

So are we having a broadloom (a wide part of roll carpeting) and turning it into a smaller shape or size custom design rug? Or possibly you want to have a unique color border added. We are able to work together with you to obtain a terrific look to accommodate nearly any price range, for your custom area rug.


If you are able to produce something which especially meets your requirements and preferred quality, you will almost certainly love the product much more. So if you’re still believing that having your area rugs customized means high-priced spending, you should think again.

So when you are ready to choose a custom design rug, look into one of these ideas:

Pick a style of broadloom carpet that you like and have it finished to your specific rug size. Any style from a solid, patterned, shag, or Berber could accent any room in the home.
(Look through our Rug Manufacturers for various styles of broadloom carpets)
