Carpet Binding Services in Bradenton, Florida

There are so many uses for a carpet once you bind it. Flooring Depot offers this convenient service to residents in the Sarasota, Longboat Key, and Anna Maria Island areas. Carpet binding puts your old carpet or rug to good use. Before we get ahead of ourselves, let's find out what carpet binding actually is. Carpet binding is the use of a synthetic based material to sew the edges or a carpet or rug. This prevents the carpeting from fraying or unraveling at the edges.

Seeing how we are all trying to reuse, re-purpose and recycle things these days, carpet binding falls right into this category. This method allows residents in the Sarasota, Longboat Key, and Anna Maria Island areas to put an old carpet remnant or scraps from your old install to good use. It takes leftover carpet from your new-floor install and makes an area rug out of it. Another option for binding is known as sisal or wide border binding. This method uses sisal binding tape, which is stitched to the top of the carpet and hot glued to the back of the carpet. Binding your carpet this way can give you boxed or mitered (joining two edges of fabric by either folding, cutting and/or stitching) corners.

Carpet binding can be used in a variety of ways


  • Put it under a table and have it serve as an area rug
  • Use it to store shoes by the door
  • The carpet remnant can be made into a runner for your hallway or used on the stairs
  • Use it as a sleeping area for your furry friends or turn it into a scratching post
  • It can be placed in the laundry room in front of the dryer to catch clothes
  • Adds warmth and comfort to your flooring
  • Reduces noise
  • Carpet binding is typically least expensive and easiest way to finish a carpet edge
This also reduces the daily wear on your flooring, extending the life or your laminate, tile, hardwood, vinyl or carpet. Instead of purchasing an expensive area rug, using the leftover carpet or remnants can be used to add color to a room just like an area rug. With so many options for that carpet remnant, it is silly to just throw it out. Get plenty of use out of it and have Flooring Depot make you something beautiful.
