Everything You Need to Know About Ordering Custom Rugs

Sometimes, you just can’t find the right rug to fit in a particular area of your home or match what you’re looking for. When that happens, there’s always one reliable solution: custom rugs from Rug Depot! But ordering the perfect custom rug involves several steps to ensure that you get it right.

Here’s everything you need to know about ordering custom rugs.

Start with the logistics.

Before you can get to the fun part, there are a few practical considerations you need to get out of the way first. Before making any choices or selections, you need to know what size rug you need. Measure the area the rug will go in or have a professional installer take the measurements for tricky areas like stairs. At this stage, you’ll also want to set your budget to ensure that you don’t fall in love with any materials or colors you can’t afford. Finally, you’ll want to check on the lead time from your chosen manufacturer. Find out how long it takes for them to manufacture, deliver, and install custom rugs so that you have realistic expectations.

Make your style choices.

When it comes to actually selecting the features of your rug, there are four things you need to think about: material, color, design, and pile height. Where you are putting your custom rug affects the material and pile height. For example, you would want wool for a living room rug for warmth, but if you are prioritizing durability, nylon is a better choice. Pile height is how thick your rug is. Thicker rugs will be softer underfoot, but may not match your room’s style. You also need to make sure any doors can easily clear the rug. Finally, you get to choose your color and design. Bold patterns and colors make a statement, while solids and muted tones will blend in with the room. It all depends on how you want the rug to work in your room.
