I find most area rugs offered at the local home stores are either boring or ugly. When I occasionally do come across an area rug I like it’s either:
#1 not affordable
#2 the pattern is great but the texture feels wrong/rough/cheap
#3 it’s perfect but the wrong size/shape.
Ya, I’m rug picky.
But I am here to share the solution to problem #3 : A year ago I found a really nice area rug at Target. It was a knock off of a rug I had seen elsewhere for a lot more money. Problem was that it was rectangle and I wanted round. I bought it anyways and found out that most local carpet stores can cut and bind any rug for you for a small fee.
Did you know this was possible??! Well now you do. Which means that you and every-other-budget-minded-picky-area-rug-shopper is a bit closer to having the area rug of their dreams too.
Solution to problems #1 and #2 coming soon ;-)
