How to fit Easybind

Laying down carpet neatly is certainly a skill, but don’t let this put you off from fitting your own carpet or runners. Once you’ve measured and positioned your carpeting right, all you’ll need to do is neaten up the edges. And, if you don’t have the time to wait for a professional carpet fitter, or just prefer to get the job done yourself, you’ll most likely need to invest in some Easybind carpet edging.

This is a quick, easy, and attractive alternative to using traditional carpet binding or whipping and comes in a beautiful rope-style finish. All you’ll need to do is apply it using a holt melt glue gun. To help you get it right, we’ve put together some handy resources you can find below.
