If you are getting ready to install carpeting in a small room of your home, you should consider using a carpet remnant. By purchasing a remnant, you will be able to get a high quality piece of carpeting, often for less than what you would pay for lower quality carpeting. When a carpet stores sells most of the carpeting on a roll, they end up with a piece that is too small for larger rooms. At this point, they classify the leftover carpeting as a “remnant,” and sell it at a discount price. Remnants are often large enough to carpet an entire room, especially if it is a smaller one. They can be an excellent choice for bedrooms, small playrooms, or bathrooms.
When shopping for remnants, one of the best places to start looking is online. Online carpet stores often sell a large volume of carpet on a daily basis, which insures that they will always have a wide selection of remnants that you can choose from. If you shop around, you should be able to find high quality carpeting, such as wool carpet remnants, that would work perfectly for a room in your home. When comparing prices between online stores, you should take the shipping and handling costs into account. Of course, it is important to keep in mind that even if you purchase a remnant at a local store, chances are you would still have to have it delivered. This is because even a carpet remnant is usually too large to be easily transported in the average car.
Although many people shop for carpet remnants so that they can get expensive high quality carpeting at a discount price, you can also get excellent prices when purchasing remnants of inexpensive grades of carpeting. This is often a good choice if you have a rental property that you wish to carpet inexpensively, or for a child’s playroom where the carpeting is likely to become damaged. Remnants are also an excellent choice if you have a fun redecorating project in mind, but do not want to spend a large amount of money. For example, if you wanted to create a fun retro bedroom look for a teenage girl, shag carpet remnants might be just the thing to add a really “mod and hip” look to her bedroom for a small amount of money. After all, redecorating projects can be a lot more fun if you do not have to break the bank to get the job done.
