Selecting new flooring, counter tops and window treatments, can be a tad stressful, and that’s without shopping with kids. Glines Carpet One Floor & Home makes shopping and gaining inspiration for your home, a breeze. The beautiful showroom and family friendly Kid Zone that Glines Carpet One Floor & Home has, really helps to lower the stress, and inspire your home improvement choices. I know this because, The Day the Paint Came Down (you can read all about it), made our choice to redo the flooring, come a lot faster than anticipated. We weren’t prepared to pick out new flooring and make big decisions quite yet, but having a local Carpet One store to go into for ideas, was so nice! Having a gallon of paint spilled on my carpet and stairs was somewhat devastating, but one good thing came from it – beautiful new floors!
My husband and I toyed with the idea of doing the floors ourselves, with the help of Home Depot and Lowe’s, but I wanted high quality products, great workmanship and to support a local business. Glines Carpet One Floor & Home serves the Greater Sacramento area. If you are ever in need of redoing flooring, counter tops, window treatments, or you just need an area rug, Glines can help!
It hasn’t been too long since Carpet One changed their name to Carpet One Floor & Home, but flooring is not their only game. They wanted people to know that carpet and flooring is not all you get when you go to Carpet One, because they actually install quite a bit of granite counter tops and window treatments. From the sounds of it, they get great pricing on their granite, and installing slabs is almost the same price as granite tile. Granite counter tops will likely be one of my next big home projects, so be expecting me back in the store Carpet One!
To tell you a bit about the shopping experience at Glines Carpet One Floor & Home; they have a ton of flooring selections, and an awesome Kid Zone to let your kids play in. The Kid Zone is a huge hit with my kids – mainly because of the Super Mario Brothers on Nintendo 64, but I’ll take it. Little Girl fell in love with a little pink purse in the Kid Zone, and it was a challenge to get her to part with it everytime we went into the store. There are a variety of toys and activities to occupy the kids while you shop.
I noticed several design and inspiration binders and books, if you just don’t have a clue what you want to do in your house. Browsing through the store is a great way to begin too.
Of course, the carpet selections are very broad. You’ve got a lot of directions you can go with carpet, from bold and bright to soft and simple, to patterns in your carpet. This picture above is just one of many rows of carpet choices.
Selecting flooring this time around, was not too much of a challenge for me. I walked into the store and spotted this beautiful Camarine flooring on display as being an Extreme Value. I was informed that this flooring happens to be on special for just $1.94 per square foot, versus the regular price of about $3.99 per square foot. Great quality and it’s beautiful! I chose the Ross Landing coloring, which is the one on the right. I love all of the wood grain and knots, which I think gives the laminate a country type vibe. The Camarine is still on special so if you have been thinking of redoing your floors, now may be a great time!
When installing large areas of laminate flooring, area rugs are very nice to have. I am still on the hunt for the perfect rug, but I think I may have found “the one” at Glines Carpet One, today. All area rugs happen to be 50% off right now, so head on in and browse around.
Glines sells a variety of flooring and counter top cleaning products to help you keep your hardwood, laminate, carpet and granite looking great, without getting ruined. Laminate floors are new to me, so I appreciate any directions as to what can and cannot be used on my new floors.
As you can see, Glines Carpet One Floor & Home is much more than just a carpet store. You can shop and gain inspiration for several different home and business projects. The staff in the store were all very friendly and super helpful. Shopping was a happy experience, which is not a common thing for me to say – mostly because shopping with my kids is usually a nightmare. That Kid Zone really did wonders for my shopping experience. The freshly baked cookies and fresh water in the store, didn’t hinder my experience in any way either! Who knew that floor shopping could make you feel like royalty?
