Rug binding fixes the worn and frayed edges of your carpeting by using binding tape and heavy duty sewing machines. It’s typically the easiest and least expensive method of finishing a carpet edge. The other benefits of binding are the vast selection of materials and colors to choose from. Virtually any color can be picked to match your carpet. By matching the color of the rug binding, the edge will blend in without standing out. However, if you want it to stand out, a contrasting color can be chosen to create a bold look in your space. Rug binding creates a more tailored look with a nice classic finish.
