Custom Area Rug Backing & Binding in Baton Rouge, LA

Sometimes the smallest things can have the largest impact. Carpet remnants may not seem like much at first glance, but there are many ways to use them to better your home.

Of course the biggest thing you can do with remnant carpet is make an area rug, and the good news is that here at Emerson Carpet One we have the tools to do that for you. We custom bind and back area rugs and have a large inventory of carpet you can choose from.

Looking for something to spruce up your stairs? Consider a staircase runner; we can bind and back those, too. A runner will not only add style to your otherwise bare stairs, it will also make your travel up and down them softer on your feet.


5 Unconventional Ways to use Carpet Remnants in your Home

For those times you find yourself thinking “there has to be a better way!” check out these five tips and tricks for repurposing carpet remnants.

1. Line your Kitchen Shelves
Never worry about chipping your plates or making loud clatters with carpet lined cabinets. For a completed look, choose a carpet color that compliments the design of your dishes and treat yourself to a pleasant visual every time you go to set the table.

2. Move Furniture
We know how precious your floors are, and we're here to help you protect them. When moving large furniture on hard-surface flooring, place carpet under each leg. You can then push the furniture across the room without leaving scratches and damaging your beautiful floors.

3. Exercise with Ease
Like a yoga mat but more comfortable: cut a carpet remnant about three feet wide and lengthwise to match your height. It will be comfortable, easy and compact because all you have to do is roll it up in between uses!

4. Comfy up your Car
Use carpet remnants to make floor mats for you and your passengers and ensure a nice padding over your floorboards. Potential side effect: barefoot passengers overtake your car.

5. Safety-Proof your Garage
Similar to lining your kitchen cabinets, line the walls of your garage door with carpet. If you have a tight squeeze in and out of your garage, rest easy knowing your door won’t ding or scratch when you open it thanks to the padded wall.
