How To Get A Custom Rug For Less!

So this is hardly a do it yourself trick, however it is a saving money trick.  :)

Have you noticed how expensive rugs are?  Even going to Target or Walmart can get pricey for Rugs.

The trick is going to a flooring store!  Who would have thought?  This is an insider tip because I actually work at a flooring store.  :)  Carpet stores always have tons of remnants sitting around the warehouse that they will sell for a very good price.  Most stores also can also bind the carpet (give it finished edges) and turn it into a rug for a very reasonable price.  It's a wonderful idea especially if you have a unique size you are looking for.  The below rug was actually left over carpet that was bound specifically to fit this area in one of my bedrooms.  I love it and it was a wonderful price!

One of the best parts of purchasing a custom rug is picking out the style of the rug.  You can get a regular rectangle rug, one with rounded corners or one a little different like mine.  The choices are endless!

So the next time you are looking for a rug, stop by your local flooring store and see what they have!  You may find just what you are looking for at a great price!

Where is your favorite place to buy rugs?
