Did You Know
that the lowest prices of the year for the flooring industry are in January and February? You may wonder why. This is because new flooring products are introduced in December and January, and our manufacturers offer special pricing on some of the older styles to make space and capacity for the new items. Another reason is that there is not as much traffic in the stores this time of year. The weather is usually cold and yucky, and bargains are an incentive for us to brave the elements and go shopping.
Why are we telling you this? Because now is a great time to buy, and there are only a couple of weeks left for you to take advantage of these great prices. These are some of our best-selling floors and very best buys. Hurry in, we can’t wait to show them to you!
Carpet…..It Just Feels Better
Patterned carpets are very popular. These subtle designs add pizzazz to your rooms, and are very easy to decorate around. Several beautiful styles are on sale, including two Karastan patterns made from SmartStrand Silk, a carpet that is so very soft, durable and stain resistant. Regularly $5.90 per sq foot installed with new padding, now on sale for $4.78 per sq foot. Tuftex of California is offering five different patterns, all Stainmaster nylon, for $2.93 per sq ft. installed. These prices include the removal of your existing carpet and pad and furniture moving. The beautiful patterns include geometrics, pin dots, and scrolls.
If your preference is for a more traditional carpet, you will love this Mohawk WearDated Embrace style. Embrace features exceptional softness and the durability you expect from nylon. Regularly $4.45 per square foot installed, now on sale for $3.57 per sq ft. The beautiful color choices include Grey Flannel, Hazelnut, Shoreline, and Champagne Bubble.
Carpet with color flecks is also very much on trend. These carpets are super practical, because the flecks hide stains and dirt. We can install this Lexmark carpet for $2.50 per square foot, and guess what----the fiber is solution dyed which means you can spot clean the carpet with a bleach and water solution. What could be easier?!!
Maybe you are only going to be in your home for another year or two and you do not need top-of-the-line carpet. No worries, we have some great options for you. We have two great styles from Mohawk and Beaulieu that are much better than “builders grade” carpet, on sale for $2.28 per square foot installed. There are plenty of colors (70) to choose from, and with an 8 pound pad (included), no one will think you skimped on the carpet.
If Tile Is Your Style
Tile that looks like wood is perfect for those that want the look of wood but are concerned about scratches, indentions, and moisture. When these looks came out a few years ago, the styles were all super expensive. Now the prices are coming down, in most cases about the same as hardwood floors! We have a beautiful style from Interceramic that we can install for $7.06 per sq ft (cement slab installation) or $9.42 if you need an underlayment. Choose from four colors: Birch, Maple, Cypress, and Sequoia.
Large format tiles are also hot sellers. As our Design Consultant Jim says “more tile, less grout!” Be sure to look at this incredibly priced 20” x 20” Mohawk porcelain tile. Regularly $7.80 per sq ft with basic cement substrate installation, now on sale for $6.32, or $8.69 per sq ft with backer board. Another great thing about this tile is that it is rectified, which means you can use a minimal grout joint. This Travertine-look tile is available in your choice of four designer colors! Next week we will share our best deals on wood and laminate flooring. If you just can’t wait, come into the Design Center and we’ll be glad to show you what else is on sale this month.
