Benefits of Custom Area Rugs

Mike's Flooring Custom Area Rugs

Area rugs tie a room together and protect the floor beneath.

Flooring is what really ties a room together. With modular flooring becoming more popular, such as hardwood and vinyl, more homes have the same flooring throughout. This is great for convenience, but it means none of your rooms have that extra pizzazz that specialized flooring adds. Custom area rugs can elevate the look of each room and pull the style together for a complete look and feel.


Area rugs take your floor up a notch. Your wall-to-wall flooring might be beautiful cherry hardwood or basic white carpet, but either way it’s all the same material. A custom area rug draws attention to a specified area of the room and breaks up the monotony of the installed flooring. Get a rug that matches the color palette and style of the furniture and see what an immense difference it makes for the look and feel of that room.


An area rug is more than a fancy block of carpet in the middle of your floor. Area rugs have functionality, such as noise absorption and keeping your feet off of ice cold floors in the early morning or during winter. They are also great for pet owners. Dogs have a habit of slipping on smooth floors, so an area rug will give them traction.


It might seem counterintuitive to cover up a beautiful wall-to-wall floor with an area rug, but a custom area rug will actually protect that floor over the years. Rugs placed in high traffic areas will keep the floor beneath shiny and new long after installation. If the rug ever needs to be moved, or the home is sold, the floor below it will look amazing when the rug is removed.

Mike’s Flooring & Design Center offers the ability to custom design area rugs & runners using any carpet in our showroom to the exact measurements that you need.  We also offer a variety of binding tapes (standard binding tape, surging tape, 3-inch or 5-inch) of several different colors in order to provide the custom look that’s desired as well as several styles of area rug padding to ensure the best performance for their customer.

Since Mike purchased the business in 1996, he and his team have helped families like yours throughout Delmarva, Sussex County, DE, and Ocean City, MD. Mike continues to be involved in the day-to-day operations, ensuring the vision you share is the one we help deliver.

Over the years, we have established relationships with local manufacturers, such as Adura, COREtec, and Bruce, who we trust to deliver superior work. Our team will continue to be your point of contact through the entire process to be sure you are completely satisfied.

We also provide “SHOP AT HOME” service.  We will bring samples directly to your home, or should you already know what products you want, we can safely provide you with a “FREE ESTIMATE.”   This allows you the flexibility of not having to be at home for us to do an estimate, nor the installation.  All we will need to know is what areas in your home we would be doing and how we can gain access (hidden key, lock box, coded entry, realtor, neighbor, etc.).  This is tailored around the homeowner who needs to get their unit ready for the season or simply enhancing their home but does not want to leave their home or can’t make it to town (Ocean City, Berlin, Salisbury, Worcester / Wicomico County Maryland & Sussex County Delaware).

This service is not new to us.  We have already been providing this service for our customers for the past 26 years.  With the current situation at hand, we can continue to provide you with your Floor Covering and/or Window Treatment & Design needs along with the “AWESOME SERVICE YOU DESERVE, ALONG WITH PROFESSIONAL, QUALITY INSTALLATIONS.”
