Modern carpet traces its roots to ancient times, when cultures passed hand-tying and knotting skills from generation to generation. The Sixteenth Century brought merchant adventurers and explorers home to Europe and with them the awareness and desire for rich textiles and rugs from the East. It wasn’t long before the appreciation of textile floor coverings took off, came to America, and became one of the most fundamental parts of our modern home interior.
The most wanted, luxurious, and expensive, carpet fiber is Wool. Natural Wool is a sustainable, stain resistant, long wearing product. We stock hundreds of rolls of real Wool carpet and always offer the best value in the market for cost conscious consumers. We’ve got a whole room full of roll after roll of Luxurious Wool Carpet at astonishing low prices.
Synthetic fibers, such as Nylon, Olefin and Polyester make up 99% of the carpet produced in the United States. These synthetics each offer specific wear, feel and cost benefits. We have hundreds of rolls of synthetic fiber carpet from which to choose. We’ll be happy to help you choose the right carpet for your specific needs.
There are seven basic carpet weaves: Textured, Berber, Saxony or Plush, Cut and Loop, Commercial, Frieze and Cable.
This is the cushion that goes between the carpet and the floor in a normal installation. A properly chosen pad acts as a sound barrier and insulator between a cold sub floor and your toes. Good pad extends carpet life and provides that “walking on a cloud” comfortable, luxurious feel. Specific styles of carpet demand specific pads. We always make sure that you get the right pad for the application and type of carpet you choose.
Color and Aesthetic
Choosing carpet from the tiny swatches at most carpet stores can be misleading. It’s almost impossible to judge weave, texture, and light reflective properties from a 4” sample. At Just Remnants you choose your carpet by the roll so you know exactly what it will look like on your floor. We’ll even cut samples so you can check color against your own furniture and accessories.
All in-stock carpet is clearly marked and priced so you know exactly what you’re buying. In most cases our prices are up to 70% below other store’s retail. You can buy carpet by the piece, roll or job. Your Just Remnants Sales Associate is a highly trained professional. We discuss every aspect of your project and then give you a written estimate. When we price a job we price the whole job to minimize the chance of surprises.
