Installation & Fabrication

Purchasing new carpet can be a big decision with many options and choices along the way. At Wahi Fine Rugs, we are here to help you make the best choices for your style and Lifestyle. Here is a basic guideline of the different types of installations, process and choices to consider along the way. In almost all cases, the process works something like this:
Choose Product > Measure Space > Order Product > Install Product in Space

Wall to Wall

In some ways, this is the most basic of all the installations we do. Here are some items to consider when choosing your wall to wall carpet:
If there is existing carpet, our team will remove the old carpet and install the new.
If there is furniture on site, we are used to that! With great care, we will move it out of the way during installation and restore it to the same location after the install.
Carpets are produced in varying sizes based on the type of loom used – some rolls are 6’ wide, while others are 16’ wide. Depending on the size of your room and the width of the roll, your installation may have seams. If so, you should know where they will be. No seams are invisible so it’s best to hide them under furniture or out of traffic patterns, if possible, and choose a product that seams well.

Stairs

We LOVE installing carpet on stairs. Every set is a little different and a stair carpet can be customized to fit your home and style. Here are some considerations for your stair installation: Wall to Wall or Runner? Will your stair carpet cover you entire step (wall to wall) or will there be wood showing on either side (runner)? If you’re doing a runner, we can dictate how much wood floor we show on either side of the runner. This is generally 3”-6” depending on the size your staircase and preference for your floor. Some clients want to hide as much of an old floor as possible, while others want to show a bit more. We can help you choose when we come on site to measure. There are two styles of installation for stairs. One is universally called “Waterfall”, which is when the carpet goes from the nose of the tread down into the throat of the step below. The other style is when the carpet is upholstered over the nose and then goes straight down along the riser below. Halls above or below stairs can be connected to or unconnected from your staircase. When we come to your home to measure, we can review the options that are best for your space, style and budget.

Cut to Fit Area Rug

Sometimes putting a rectangle area rug into a space simply doesn’t work. For those times, we can make a custom cut rug. Sometimes when people see “custom” they think it means “expensive” (and sometimes it does lol!), but in most cases, we’re not custom ordering your carpet. We simply custom cut it to fit your space either from precise measurements or by templating it at your home. Here are some points to ponder about your cut to fit area rug:
Carpets are produced in varying sizes based on the type of loom used – some rolls are 6’ wide, while others are 16’ wide. Depending on the size of your room and the width of the roll, your installation may have seams. If so, you should know where they will be. No seams are invisible so it’s best to hide them under furniture or out of traffic patterns, if possible, and choose a product that seams well.
We will be able to dictate how much floor you would like to see in which areas. This can vary greatly from spaces to space, but generally it’s 4”-12” from the wall and can even vary within a room. For instance, we might show 12” off the walls, but then only 1” around a fireplace. This is what makes it a “custom cut to fit area rug”.
Edging – see below about the different options available for edging your new area rug.

Edging of your Carpet

Unless they are being installed wall to wall, all carpets need something to seal the edges of the carpet and keep your carpet secure. We typically do this in one of the following three ways:
Narrow binding – this is a 1 ½” wide cotton or polyester tape that just covers the edge of the rug and only shows about ¼” on the face of the rug. You can choose a specific color or we can have our workroom match the color (although it’s best for you to choose so you know what you’re getting!)
Wide Binding – This is a 5” wide cotton, leather, linen or other material tape that will show some amount on the face of your rug. We can dictate how much of this binding you want to see on the face of the rug and whether you want mitred or lapped corners.
Serging – this is a thread that is wrapped around the edge of your rug, either by hand or by machine.
