4 Reasons You Need a Custom Rug

When it comes to decorating your home or desired space, there are a few items that can help you establish ownership of the place. One such item is the custom rug.

Now, it’s true that a generic rug can also have a big impact on a space. A good rug, even if it’s mass-produced, can still help you express your personality in decor.

But it won’t leave that unique, unmistakable stamp that only a custom rug offers. And besides that, there are so many other reasons bespoke rugs are worth getting.

Today we’ll explore several key reasons why a custom rug might be the perfect addition to your space when you need unique home accent pieces. This should show you why so many people are now getting these bespoke items.

Obviously, we had to start with this! As we noted earlier, a custom rug allows you to create a unique design that reflects your personal style while complementing your existing decor.

Bespoke rugs have value simply by being impossible to find anywhere else. Rarity is one of the core predictors of value, after all, and it’s hard to be rarer than being the only one of your kind!

Plus, with such rugs, you have full control of what you get. You can specify your wants or needs to the maker, as our clients do to us, and feel at full liberty to express your tastes and personality in doing so.

Unlike pre-made rugs, bespoke rugs can be tailored to fit your space perfectly, regardless of the space’s shape or size. This is especially important when you have irregularly shaped rooms or unusually sized ones. 

This becomes all the more relevant now as people struggle with space in their homes. More and more irregularly shaped rooms are showing up, which can make going with traditional round or four-sided rugs a bit difficult.

Being able to specify rug shape and fit matters too because some designs or patterns can give away a size mismatch when trimmed in the wrong area.

In the same way, made-to-measure carpets are crafted so their designs fit perfectly into a room instead of being trimmed in an awkward place, rugs can be made to look perfectly fitted too.

3. Enhanced Comfort

Another nice thing about bespoke rugs is that you can specify the type of material or texture that you want for them! You no longer have to put up with a mismatch like the design you want being paired with the wrong texture, or vice versa.

You can ask for a rug with more cushioning, for instance, if you want one that also adds more comfort to a space. Or something with a shorter pile if you’re concerned about people tripping (plus maintenance and cleaning).

While a custom rug may be more expensive than a pre-made rug, it also holds its value better. A bespoke rug is often a long-term investment that will last for many years to come.

As explained earlier, a custom rug can be made from high-quality materials that are designed to withstand heavy foot traffic and wear and tear. That means better durability (and lower repair or replacement costs).

Additionally, a custom rug can be designed with a timeless appeal, which means that you never have to worry about it going out of style. This means that style-savvy homeowners won’t have to worry about replacing rugs to avoid looking outdated.
