4 Uses Of Carpet Remnants

Whether you buy carpet and have a leftover piece, or you find a great deal here in the store, you might be wondering what you can do with a remnant besides carpeting a small room. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Area Rugs

The number one way to use a carpet remnant is to get it bound into an area rug. Carpet remnants can make great area rugs since they are cheaper than premade rugs and they can be made into any size, large or small. All you have to do is choose the perfect carpet remnant from our huge selection and let us know what size you want! We’ll handle the rest!


Stair Runners

If you have hardwood stairs, you may have thought about getting a runner to put on top of them, especially if you have pets or children that can slip on the stairs. Because you only need about 3 feet in width of carpet but a long length, carpet remnants are perfect for making stair runners. While there are premade runners available, many of them come in patterns so if you’re looking for something simpler or a specific type of texture or color, carpet remnants can be a great option. They also tend to run at a lower price point.




If you have pets, you can use carpet remnants for several out-of-the-box ideas. For cats, carpet can make the perfect scratching post. You can also put a piece under the litter box to trap stray litter. Place a piece under water bowls to keep it from moving on the floor and splashing. It can even be used in a dog house or crate for added insulation and padding.



Carpet remnants, used as an area rug, can make hard floors a little safer for children to play on by providing traction and cushion. They can also be used for a variety of kids games, such as on a sensory board. We have even carpeted a dollhouse!


Here at Carpet Depot, we have a huge and ever-changing selection of carpet remnants to choose from! Stop by our store and find the perfect remnant for your next project!
