Hey all, just wanted to share a way to get a nice area rug on the cheap! I stopped into our local remnant store, Remnant City in Wexford, PA. They are actually a client of my husband's credit card processing company so he suggested we visit them since I've been so desperate to find a rug of the family room that Mr. Tickles won't pee on so I though I'd give it a shot!
I couldn't believe how inexpensive binding a custom rug is! I can get a huge 9x12 rug for about $220.00 bucks! I was thrilled because I have been searching for a non-patterned solid beige rug, basically that looks like regular carpet. I didn't want to spend a ton of a wool rug due to the fear of cat pee and having a 2k rug ruined, so this is a great solution! I really wanted something basic and plain so it would go with any color scheme i decided to accessorize with. Granted, it will just be nylon and not fancy wool but I wanted something soft underfoot and low maintenance. They have tons of carpets from big name brands like Masland and Karistan too, so you know they will hold up! And, if I hate it after 2 years, I won't feel so bad replacing it. I'm headed up there today to decide between a few carpets since I couldn't make up my mind there this weekend. I highly recommend them if you live in the Pittsburgh area.
