If you recently put carpet in your home and you have carpet remnants you’re not sure what to do with, we have six different solutions for you:

  1. Move furniture: Sure, you can buy little stickers to put on the bottom of furniture when you move it around, but instead of buying cheap stickers that may end of scratching your floors, you can use a square of carpet underneath and move it around that way.
  1. Cushion your knees: Whether you’re kneeling on the ground when gardening or you’re working on hardwood floors or cleaning the floors, take a carpet remnant, fold it over and kneel on it so it’s not so hard on your knees.
  1. Scratching post: If you have a cat that scratches your furniture, use leftover carpet remnants to create a scratching post.
  1. Muffle noises: Do you have a laundry set that makes a lot of thumping noises when it’s running its cycle? Place carpet squares underneath the set to drown out the sound.
  1. Create an exercise mat: If you have a large, excess amount of carpet remnants, cut out about 3 feet of the carpet and roll it up for when you’re not using it.
  1. Car mats: To keep your car clean, you can use carpet remnants to put on the floors of your car to keep dirt from spreading or to keep your feet comfortable while driving.
