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.
And, while flooring options can be purchased at contractors’ prices, one doesn’t have to be an industry professional to find top-quality flooring at affordable prices at Carpet Outlet. The trusted company continues to bring in the latest industry-leading products and offers storewide deals to help Hawai‘i home and business owners upgrade their flooring systems, while also remaining within budget.
While consumers may be wary about purchasing flooring products as new tariffs have been placed on goods imported from China, the options at Carpet Outlet are still very affordable, and there are more choices available than ever.
The public is welcome to peruse 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 and additional options to address flooring needs in every room.
Situated conveniently in Salt Lake across from Target, Carpet Outlet allows customers to find 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, which is half the time it takes to order via competitors.
Customers continue to seek out 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 Carpet Outlet, and are great for high-traffic areas, thus making them easy to maintain across residential and commercial applications.
With an unsurpassed combination of beauty, functionality and durability, luxury vinyl flooring serves as an industry leading product line that has proven to be ideal for local homeowners and the island lifestyle. Carpet Outlet features the latest vinyl laminate products, which are economical and are ideal throughout local households in a variety of patterns and colors that complement the local landscape; the easy-to-clean floor also resists scratches, stains and pet damage.
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 are also available as a fast method for installation, which comes in handy when replacing individual planks over time. Most varieties come with underlayment layers already attached, and stronger core densities that enhance durability and scratch protection — even when facing use by pets and children.
“Luxury vinyl planks and tiles are ideal flooring options, especially for families here in Hawaii,” Carpet Outlet flooring experts explain. “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.”
Carpet Outlet also offers 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 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.
Carpet Outlet’s showroom offers convenient hours of operation: Monday-Friday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Saturday, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
