When a carpet supplier sells most of a roll of carpet but ends up with a bit of leftover, they often put the remainder up for sale as remnants. They are also sometimes known as roll-ends or offcuts.
If you have the option to purchase carpet remnants, there are several potential pros and cons to keep in mind. The most significant advantage worth considering is the price savings that will come along with purchasing carpet remnants. Because suppliers know they won't sell remnants at full price and want to clear out the stock, you can often find them much cheaper. In addition, we'll have these pieces in a range of sizes, colours, and styles.
Another potential benefit to keep in mind when buying remnants is that you can typically bring the roll home the same day. As a result, there's no need to wait for a particular order to come in for your carpet, which can speed up the timeframe to complete your flooring project.
On the other hand, when you're shopping for carpet remnants, your selection is a little more limited than it would be otherwise. It may be harder to find a carpet in the exact colour or style you'd looking for, so you may need to be more flexible with your preferences to stay on budget.
Also, depending on the size of the area where you'll be installing your carpet, you may end up with a lot more carpeting than you need (or not enough) with a remnant roll. This means you'll need to be especially careful when it comes to measuring and deciding on your carpet needs.
Overall, it can be an excellent decision for those who want to maximise their flooring budgets without sacrificing quality in the process. Our carpet remnants come from a range of our suppliers, like Godfrey Hirst, Feltex, Signature, Beaulieu, and Victoria Carpets.
