Binding & Finishing

We Have the Edge, Literally...

Carpets To Go offers you the most options when it comes to edging carpets. We carry a tremendous amount of carpet inventory and proudly do all fabrication and edge finishing in-house – sometimes while you wait. This gives us complete control over quality and turnaround time so we can pass the value onto you.

We offer a wide range of colors, fabrics, and finishing techniques that match any interior design or style of carpet. We can cut any carpet or carpet remnant to custom shapes and sizes, and professionally bind, serge, fringe, or braid to create a seamless edge that matches your style.


Carpet Binding

Carpet binding is a material that is sewn onto the outer edges of the carpet to keep the border clean and neat. The color of the fabric is typically matched to the rug so the edge is not noticeable, but can also be selected for intentional contrast. It adds a tailored look and a classic, elegant finish that holds up to heavy foot traffic and vacuuming.


Wide Cotton Binding

Depending on the style desired, the binding can be subtle or wide. Wide cotton binding offers a distinct look and feel and adds an elegant border to your custom area rug. This application is used mainly on lower pile carpets. It creates a border effect in either cotton or leather.


Carpet Serging

Carpet serging is a finishing method in a class of its own. Serging is a spun thread sewn onto the edge of the carpet. It is typically seen on custom area rugs, decorative runners, and elegant oriental rugs. Carpet serging resembles a high end, hand-sewn edge. Many flooring stores do not offer this option in-house, as it is an art form that needs mastering, but we are proud to offer carpet serging along with all other edge finishing fabrications at Carpets To Go. We stock over 80 serging colors in our showroom in Howell, NJ to best fit your decor.


Carpet Fringing

Carpet fringing is a popular way to finish decorative runners and area rugs. It adds a pop of texture and a differentiated design that suits many interior design needs. Carpet fringing includes adding long tassels to the edges of a round, rectangular, or square. At Carpets To Go, we stock four different types of fringe to finish carpets, and can even re-fringe an existing rug if needed.


Carpet Braiding

At Carpets To Go, we are always “Thinking Outside the Box” with you in mind. We started carpet braiding, which is a fantastic way to add pizzazz and originality to a stair runner. Some of our clients purchase solid or lightly patterned carpet and want to add some color or bring in a different texture. At Carpets To Go, we pride ourselves on offering services and flooring inventory to fit every style and budget. That’s why we added the unique finishing method of carpet braiding to our repertoire. Carpet braiding is a fantastic way to add a little flair and distinction to a stair runner or area rug. It adds an additional layer of texture and/or color to solid or lightly patterned carpet and it delivers a design element that ordinary finishes can’t match.
