carpet center of a room with a tile border?


Go, go, go! That is an elegant idea. Make sure to choose the right color combination that will compliment your walls and furniture.

Thanks rusty, this helps me too in my decision. I think I'll round my edges, then rabbet the underside to cover the edges of the carpet. Po) That should hold it tight and stop any fraying.

For the record, I love the look of carpet tucked to tile or wood, it just isn't the right way to do it.
