Carpet, most definitely, can be customized! Vogel's Carpets & Flooring provides a full line of customized carpet in Seattle, WA. In addition, we offer personalized area rugs made by top-notch companies like Stanton, Couristan, and Godfrey Hirst. So you have several choices to make when you order a rug that is made just for your home.
Type of carpet
First, you must choose a carpet style. While pattern and color are a matter of preference, it's best to consider room function and foot traffic when considering carpet construction and fiber. A short loop pile nylon or triexta carpet is most durable. Polyester carpeting, known for its vibrant colors, is ideal for low-traffic areas. Natural fibers, like wool, are available, too.
Size, shape, and finishing options
Custom stair runners are sized to fit your stairs. The most common area rug shapes are rectangle, square, round, and octagon. To choose the right size, consider how your furniture is arranged rather than centering the rug in the room. Finishing options include binding, serging, and fringing. Binding is a strip of fabric, whereas serging is a continuous wrap of yarn.
A rug pad provides slip resistance and comfort underfoot. It also keeps the rug flat and in its place. Most importantly, a rug pad decreases daily wear and tear, so rug lifespan is increased. Consider dual-layered felt and rubber pads, which provide the cushion of felt with the grip of rubber. In addition, 100-percent natural rubber pads are long-lasting and won't damage hard surface floors.
In addition to a great selection of high-quality flooring, Vogel's Carpets & Flooring provides services that include residential and commercial installation and area rug binding. We service the entire greater Seattle area, with a showroom on Aurora Avenue in North Seattle. Our flooring specialists can help you get started with your carpet flooring upgrade.
