Potential Uses for Carpet Remnants

by | Oct 1, 2015 | Home Improvement

Many stores that sell carpet, including Carpet Discount Warehouse, sell Remnants of these carpets at a discount. These can be useful for a number of different projects.

Carpet a Small Room

In some cases, a homeowner may be able to find a large enough remnant to carpet a small room or closet. The choices will be limited, but for those who are open to whatever styles and designs are available, it can be a good way to save money on new carpeting for the home.

Use As a Rug

These small pieces of carpet can also be turned into rugs or welcome mats. Just add binding to the edges to keep them from fraying as the scrap gets used, and you’ll be all set with a beautiful new rug at a fraction of the cost of buying a ready-made rug from the store.

In a Space for Pets

Remnants can also make a nice place for a pet to lay on when they’re in a room with a harder floor or in a dog house. They can be used to make some types of pet toys as well, such as scratching posts for cats.

Protect Your Knees

Keeping carpet scraps handy with gardening supplies or in the car trunk can help people protect their knees when they need to kneel on the ground to perform tasks such as weeding the garden or changing a tire.

To Replace Old Car Mats

When the mats in the car wear out, cut carpet remnants to size and use these instead for a nice cushy floor mat. This allows people to have a wider variety of design and color options than traditional car floor mats as well, allowing people to cater to their personal style a bit more.

Help With a Stuck Car

Sometimes people get stuck in snow, ice or mud because the car tires can’t get enough traction. Try keeping a few carpet remnants in the trunk to put under the tires and give the car the necessary traction to get out of this type of tricky situation. They don’t take up much space, so it’s worth a try.
