Rug fabrication

Hand-knotted rugs
Hand-knotted rugs are considered the "best," highest-quality option. Because they are knotted completely by hand, and will take months to finish, depending on their size, the step up in quality is immediately apparent and well worth it. Hand-knotted staircases add a unique accent to your home.

Made-to-order staircases
If you want to explore the options in made-to-order rugs or staircases, we have that covered as well. Mark Readel with RugGuy Galleriez Inc has brought his expertise and collection of rugs and samples for inspiration.

Hand-tufted rugs
Hand-tufted rugs are your "better" option, coming in at a slightly higher price point than power-loomed rugs. These rugs are constructed by hand with the help of a tufting gun—which is like a hand-held sewing machine—and they can take a few weeks to make. Offered in wool, silk, and synthetics, most hand-tufted rugs will last up to 10 years with normal wear.

Power-loomed rugs
Power-loomed rugs from Schmidt Custom Floors represent your most affordable option. They are made entirely by machine, which greatly reduces labor costs while offering superb durability. Power-loomed rugs are offered in both wool and/or art silk materials in a range of existing designs or in the custom design of your choosing. We have products from Oriental Weavers and Nourison and more.

Custom rugs made from your favorite carpet
If you are looking for not as much color or definition and there is a favorite carpet, you can also have a custom sized rug made from it.

We encourage you to visit our Waukesha, Wisconsin showroom today to see examples of our area rug selection and discuss your needs with our design staff.

Let’s Talk Rugs! Beauty And Benefits

Rugs are far more than just a beautiful piece of decor. Whether they’re your inspiration for design or the finishing touch on a room, area rugs can be the perfect addition to any space. Rugs are a fun and versatile way to make your house a home. Learn more about our rug boutique here.

Add a pop of color or keep your tones consistent with a fun or patterned area rug! Liven up a neutral space by introducing some color or tie all your accents together to unify the room. Rugs come in a huge variety of colors and sizes.

The best way to add depth to a room is texture. When a textured rug is contrasted with a smoother surface, it draws attention to the beauty of your hardwood or tiled floors. Varying the textures in a room creates balance and appeals to our senses.

Maybe the most obvious point, but area rugs amp up the cozy factor. It’s a great way to bring a room together in a subtle, yet intimate way. Adding a layer helps to soften and add warmth to your tile or hardwood floors. We love the long-lasting beauty of hardwood or tile floors but layering a rug over them can enhance that beauty and add a level of comfort to your floors. This advantage isn’t limited to hard surfaces, you can even layer over carpet!.

With open space concepts being all the rage, it’s hard to know how to keep your spaces defined and your guests relaxed. Rather than building walls, define an area in your home with a rug! If it feels like your furniture is floating, adding an area rug really helps to define a gathering space. Rugs can draw your eye to highlight your beautiful floors!

Other Benefits:

Reduce echo
We know you love your wide-open spaces, but the key to any great room is crafting intimacy. Keep the echo at bay with a rug! So, while your rug may be a great conversation starter, it also helps keep the volume low. Win-win.

Quick change
The magic of a rug is the ability to quickly update a space. Don’t have enough time for a full remodel? Add a new rug over wood, carpet, or tile for a dramatic update.

Finishing touch
Any well-designed space needs to be tied together. Complete your featured space with an area rug to unify all your accents. The finishing touch is really what makes a house your home.
