Reduce, Reuse, Recycle with Remnants

You just finished picking out the perfect carpet for your new home, but what do you do with the leftover pieces? Before you kick them to the curb, check out these ideas to stretch them a little further!

Make a rug
Keep things consistent in your house by adding a rug to your hardwood floors. An added bonus: one that matches nearby carpet. It’ll warm up your home, at no extra cost to you.

Please your pet
Roll up your sleeves, and dare to get crafty! Did you know you can make just about anything from carpet remnants? Dog beds? Check. Dog steps so you can snuggle with your four-legged friend? Of course. Cat scratching pole? You got it!

Let your kid’s creativity flow
Let your kid’s imagination soar and get them moving! 12×12 inch squares make for the perfect game of hopscotch and can add a pop of color to any room! Carpet remnants provide a great way to practice gross motor skills and can make for a fun alternative when nap time comes around—just add a blanket!

Move your heavy furniture with ease
Slide heavy furniture across the room with ease. Slide pieces of remnant carpet under the legs of a bed, dresser, or bookcase, then push it across the floor. Your back will thank you later!

Squeaky clean screens
A piece of carpet remnant + warm sudsy water = clean window screens! You’re just responsible for the elbow grease!

Protect your knees
Gardening can be extremely damaging on your knees and back! Give them both a break and use a piece of remnant as protection! It’ll not only add cushion, but support!

Door dings no more
Protect your car and garage by attaching a piece of remnant carpet to the wall so you don’t ding your door when you open it. Say goodbye to a dinged-up car!

Dramatic drawer liners
Keep your breakables from sliding around your drawers by adding a small piece to cushion your favorite china!

Car mats, floor mats, exercise mats
Protect your car floors from dirt, dust and winter snow! If they get too dirty, throw them in the wash and once they’ve lived their life, pitch them!

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Once your remnant has lived it’s life, it’s time to recycle!
