Our Carpet Remnant Buying Guide

Carpetland’s Carpet Remnant Buying Guide

Carpet remnants are an underestimated purchase when it comes to flooring. While some people may assume that carpet remnants are pieces that are damaged or out of style, they are actually just leftover carpet from flooring projects. Sold at a fraction of the price in comparison to flooring directly from the manufacturer, carpet remnants can be a budget-friendly solution for your carpeting needs. From small squares to those that can fill an entire room, our flooring experts at Carpetland are ready to make the remnant buying process seamless from start to finish.

So, what can you actually do with carpet remnants? Although they can be used to simply carpet your floors, it doesn’t end there. 

Best Spaces for Carpet Remnants

In general, carpet remnants are best in low-traffic or worn out areas. They provide an excellent temporary solution for sections of your carpet that are in need of some extra maintenance or even a full replacement. Although, they can be a great design statement without the price of designer area rugs. 

Small Rooms

Carpet remnants are a great flooring refresh for the smaller spaces in your home, such as offices, guest rooms, closets, and even dorm rooms! Carpet remnants offer an easy and cost-effective method for creating a warm and unique environment to go with your room’s aesthetic. 

Another great space for carpet remnants is an unfinished basement to ensure hard floors are safer for children to play, providing traction and cushion. Make designated play areas more fun, yet safe with colorful carpet remnants to add vibrance to a dull, unfinished basement. 


Need a stair runner? Carpet remnants are here to save the day! Covering the entire stairs or just the treads, carpet remnants will protect your flooring underneath while providing comfort and support underfoot, perfect for aging adults

Pet-Friendly Spaces

If you have pets, carpet remnants can be your solution. For cats, carpet remnants provide for great coverage on scratching posts. Or for dogs, you can place a piece under water bowls or in dog houses to create more comfort.

Heavy Equipment Spaces

Garage Floors

You can also utilize carpet remnants in garages to protect your garage floor. Carpet remnants work great as a doormat to wipe off dirty shoes. Or, place a larger carpet remnant in your workspace where heavy tools and machines are kept. If you accidentally drop something, it will prevent damage to the garage floor. 

Exercise Rooms

Smaller carpet remnants are great under exercise equipment like lifting benches or ellipticals. You can use pieces to move heavy furniture, but you can also use carpet remnants to prevent your floor from being scratched.
