Set Yourself Up for Success
Ready for a perfect fit? Follow our step-by-step guide to order a custom rug just for your unique space.
STEP 1: ORDER SWATCHES
to preview colors and styles. Not sure which
type of rug you need? Visit our Rugs 101 Guide:
How to pick the right rug – in the right material –
for your space to see the benefits of each fiber.
We recommend seeing a swatch in the space
before placing a custom rug order to ensure
that you'll be pleased with your purchase.
STEP 2: MEASURE –
not once, but twice, to determine the exact
length and width you need. Custom size rugs
are not returnable, and are not meant to be
used as wall-to-wall carpeting. Consult our
measuring guide, or better yet: have a
professional measure for your custom rug
area (especially for stair runners).
- Note that our custom rugs have a 2-inch tolerance, meaning they may vary by +/- 2 inches from the specified
length and/or width, depending on the pattern and/or construction. For more information on rug tolerance,
visit our Frequently Asked Questions and read more under "Custom Rugs".
- The minimum size for a custom rug is 25 square feet.
- The maximum length is 30 feet and the maximum width varies between 13-15 feet. Check the details for each
- For custom stair runners, we strongly recommend consulting a professional. Every staircase is unique and
custom rugs are not returnable.
- If multiple rugs are being used in the same room or staircase, let your customer service or sales rep know!
We'll make sure you have consistent patterns and dye lots.
STEP 3: ADD A CUSTOM RUG PAD
to protect your investment. Rug pads are
important, and custom size rug pads are
not sold separately.
STEP 4: PLACE YOUR ORDER!
We offer free freight shipping on all custom
area rugs, and white glove delivery on all

“This room is a perfect square, and I really wanted to design
the furniture layout to highlight the existing symmetry in the
space, therefore we needed a perfectly square rug. I was
delighted to turn to Annie Selke for a custom-size wave sisal
rug. To add depth and warmth, I love layering a higher pile
rug – like the Zillah rug – on top. This helps focus the seating
area and feels amazing underfoot."
