How Can Carpet Remnants Be Put to Good Use?
Once the new wall to wall carpeting is installed, there will be some product left over. Instead of hauling the remnants to the curb, it makes sense to keep them on hand. In fact, those pieces can be put to good use in a number of ways. Here are some ideas to consider.
Replacing Damaged Spots
All sorts of things can happen to carpet once it’s installed. Perhaps something was dropped on the spot, and no amount of steam cleaning will remove the stain. One way to deal with the situation is to raid the garage where the carpet Remnants are stored. Using a utility knife, it will be easy enough to cut out the stained area and then fashion a remnant section to fill in the now-vacant space. Be sure to use carpet tape on the underside to keep the section in position. With attention to detail, the patch will remain in place for years.
Creating a Runner for the Hallway
There’s hardwood flooring in the hallway, but it would be nice to add a bit of color. Choose a remnant that’s large enough to create a runner for that space. Remember that it needs to be narrower than the hall, so the wood flooring can still be seen. It’s easy enough to secure the binding materials needed to add a secure border to the remnant. For very little cost, the homeowner has something that blends in nicely with the carpeting in the home and will hold up well for a long time.
Create an Area Rug
A larger remnant can be shaped into a custom area rug for a bedroom, den, or other space. With the right type of knife or other cutting materials, it’s possible to create any shape that will fit in with the decor and function of the room. The same materials used to bind the raw edges for the hallway runner can also be used for this newly created area rug. This helps to bring in more color and texture into a room while also visually connecting it to the rest of the house.
