With an unsurpassed combination of beauty, functionality and durability, luxury vinyl flooring continues to serve as an industry leading product line that has proven to be ideal for local homeowners and the island lifestyle.
Customers continue to clamor for waterproof vinyl planks and laminate options, which feature waterproof cores and are perfect in areas such as the kitchen or restroom, where potential flooding caused by overflowing drains, sinks or toilets would typically be catastrophic. These flooring options are readily available at the Carpet Outlet, and are great for high traffic areas, thus making them easy to maintain across residential and commercial applications.
Carpet Outlet features the latest vinyl laminate products, including the Kama‘aina Hale line, which is very economical and makes for an ideal option throughout local households and businesses. Kama‘aina Hale was developed with patterns and colors that complement the local landscape, and the easy-to-clean floor resists scratches, stains and pet damage. The readily available waterproof flooring systems start at $2.99 per square foot, and range up to $6 per square foot for premium varieties; Carpet Outlet makes it possible for homeowners with varying budgets to find a suitable option for their living space.
These and other luxury vinyl laminate options are available in 20 and 12 mil wear layers for enhanced durability over the life of the floor, and are as beautiful as they are functional with wood and tile patterns and textures. In addition to click-lock panels that are installed with joints to combine planks, glue-down options also are available as a fast method for installation, which comes in handy when replacing individual planks over time. Most varieties now come with underlayment layers already attached, and stronger core densities that enhance durability and scratch protection — even when standing up to use by pets and children.
“These luxury vinyl planks and tiles serve as ideal flooring options, especially for families here in Hawaii,” notes Carpet Outlet flooring experts. “Not only do you have peace of mind with 100 percent waterproof options, but the protection against wear and damage is outstanding. The entire family, including keiki and pets, can enjoy the many flooring options we have to offer.”
It’s easy to find quality name brand flooring products at contractors’ pricing at Carpet Outlet, and you don’t have to be a contractor to stay within budget while shopping for the latest styles and varieties suited for industry veterans and first-time buyers alike. The local business’ friendly professionals have kama‘aina covered when it comes to accenting and improving a new or renovated structure. Carpet Outlet continues to bring in new, industry leading products and roll out storewide deals to help Hawaii home and business owners upgrade their flooring systems.
Homeowners also may visit Carpet Outlet to select from some of the world’s softest — yet durable — carpet varieties to address traffic in various rooms and spaces. “The softest carpet you have ever felt in between your toes” has evolved to feature a host of consumer-friendly characteristics, including soft fibers that don’t shed or fade, stain resistance and waterproof backings that make addressing spills much easier than in the past.
The public is welcome at Carpet Outlet’s expansive warehouse, which is fully stocked with more than 100 varieties of flooring products. Carpet Outlet features a vast inventory and carries area rugs, carpet remnants, carpet tiles and rug cushions, ceramic and porcelain tile, engineered hardwood, wood laminate, vinyl wood planks and luxury vinyl tile, as well as numerous other options to address flooring needs in every room.
Customers will feel at ease when working with the experienced staff at Carpet Outlet as the flooring experts have more than 40 years of cumulative experience in the industry.
Situated conveniently in Salt Lake across from Target, Carpet Outlet allows customers to come in and roll out with the right flooring selection via assistance from an experienced, friendly staff. While the location does not provide installation services — this allows Carpet Outlet to keep its prices low — interested customers are provided with referrals to qualified independent flooring installers. And, in case one wishes to special order a product, the wait time ranges from just two to four weeks — half the time it takes to order via competitors.
