Things To Avoid When Investing in a Custom Rug

Buying a custom rug is a very personal decision, it lets you express your taste and style and may be the perfect opportunity to have that one furniture piece that ties together an area, or multiple rooms. However, when committing to something as significant as a bespoke furniture piece it is important to get it right.

There are various considerations that should be taken into account when designing, or commissioning, your own bespoke rug.

Firstly you should consider when there is something similar already on the market. Existing designs are a safe way of obtaining a rug that you know will work. I someone out there is making a rug design the chances are that it works. Which begs the question if you want a custom rug in the first place. If you have a rug out there in the proper size and colours then chances are to be less expensive than having a rug made bespoke.

custom rugs The cost increase for custom rugs is not basically the design process but the economies of scale involved with purchasing dyes, drafting up the look onto a computer, then onto a canvas for hand-tufting, or a rug ‘cartoon’ for hand-knotted rugs, and small-scale shipping costs being substantially higher than large batch production. That said, existing rugs are the most common way to obtain inspiration for custom rugs – many custom rugs take an existing design and modify it slightly, or adapt the colours while keeping the pattern the same, or just alter the size to match. Needless to say some custom rugs can be more cost-effective than designer rugs giving a similar quality at a lower price-tag, the only real difference being the lack of a designer sticker underneath.

The next pitfall to avoid when commissioning a custom rug is getting your design wrong at the start, changing elements of your rug after the manufacturing process has begun might not be possible and if it really is it could be costly. Easier to take longer at the design stage than realise you have made a mistake later on.

Choosing design and colours is actually a careful balance. An ultra-modern and patterned rug might be perfect for at this time but will it look right if you change your decor and when it does not, are you OK with that? Conversely, having a custom rug made to own it bland may defeat the purpose, so putting some thought right into a design that you will love for years ahead helps to ensure it is a higher value purchase. However, custom rugs don’t need to cost the earth and will often cost less than you’ll think, getting a quote and sending off ideas of designs costs nothing. Learn costs and timeframes and take your decision from there.
