Carpet Area Rugs

With the trend towards hard floors, such as wooden, tiled, concrete and laminated floors. The need for large carpet area rugs is a necessity to add warmth underfoot, soften the echo in a room, define a space in a larger room and add comfort for children to play on.

Carpet Binders can help customers create a custom-made area-specific rug made from carpet and edged in a finish of their choosing.

Having a large carpet remnant, either carpet overlocked or taped bound, is a cost-effective way to create a large area rug.

At Carpet Binders, we do not sell carpets. We are solely carpet edging professionals who are highly respected in our industry for our carpet hemming workmanship and depth of knowledge in this specific carpet trade-related area.

Can an area rug be made out of carpet cost-effectively?

Yes, you can create a carpet area rug to your size, and it is an economical way to do it.

How to make carpet area rugs in three simple steps
with Carpet Binders

Step 1

Go to a carpet retailer and ask them if they have any carpet pieces suitable.

When talking to the sales representative, use words or carpet-related terms like:

  • Carpet shortend
  • End of roll
  • Discontinued lines
  • Manufacturers seconds
  • Or managers specials

Remember, you are not buying a house lot of carpet, just a piece of carpet end or carpet remnant.

Which will range in size from 3.66m x 2.00m up to 3.66m x 7.2m

This is the most economical way to get a quality large-area rug. Also, there are some stunning New Zealand wool carpets available to choose from.

Step 2 

Once you have made your choice for your new bound area rug

Arrange with the carpet company to liaise with us. Or contact us directly to work with them on your behalf for the carpet to come to our workshop.

We work with most carpet retailers in Christchurch and the wider Canterbury region. We can pick up your large carpet piece from their showroom if it doesn’t fit your car.
