Sadly, no matter how well we take care of our rugs, there comes a day when it’s time to replace them. Whether a mysterious hole shows up that looks a lot like the handiwork of your cat or you’re working on a full-house makeover, sometimes it is time to say goodbye to your rug.
But rather than just throwing away that old rug, why not try a more creative use for it? There are tons of clever ways to reuse an old area rug, depending on what condition it’s still in. If it’s still in good shape, you can even use sections of an area rug for decoration. Or, if the pile’s seen better days, maybe a more practical purpose would work better. The creative possibilities are endless! Check out these 10 tips for recycling and repurposing your retired rugs.
