Custom Stair Runners for Your Home

November 7, 2018 at 9:59 pm

Stair runners add class and beauty upon entering a home.  They are often times referred to as works of art.  Custom stair runners will visually enhance a home’s entrance and make a statement about the home.  They also can make your stairway safer.  Hardwood stairs are often slippery and easier to slip on than a stair runner.  Stair runners can be made from any type of carpet.  They can be simple or extravagant.  Stair runners can be a practical addition to your home or be used to enhance its appearance.  The entrance to your home is the first impression people have when they come inside. If they see a beautiful stairway they will be impressed.

Wool or synthetic fiber?

A stair runner is usually more decorative than standard carpet and is  woven for stair use. Stair runners are typically woven using wool or synthetic pile fibers.  The fiber comes in a variety of styles and prices.
Either fiber is great and can be said to be better than the other in different ways.  Our experts at Coventry will provide our customers with all of the information necessary regarding the differences and help you make the right choice for your home.

Stair runner installation:
They are usually installed over a dense carpet pad with small hidden staples. This keeps the carpeting from moving.  Having a properly installed stair runner is critical for it  to perform well and last for a long time.  Incorrect installation can result in a safety risk and reduce the life of the runner.  At Coventry we deal with all types of staircases and we have a lifetime installation guarantee.

Maintaining your stair runner:

  1. Vacuuming on a regular basis.
  2. Clean or remove shoes when entering the home.
  3. Keep the floors by the stairs clean.
  4. Professional carpet cleaner yearly.

Coventry Flooring provides a lifetime installation guarantee on all of our work!

Custom Area Rugs

October 28, 2018 at 1:36 am

At Coventry flooring we custom make area rugs in any shape or size.  We can make them from any type of carpet.   People love area rugs in their living room or family room. Area rugs  are cozy and decorative. You can create a frame in which to place pieces of furniture or define living spaces.  People create artwork and conversation pieces from these rugs.

Area rugs  can be used in almost any room including hallways.  They are most common in the living room over an existing flooring like luxury vinyl tile or hardwood.   You can design a beautiful area rug for much less than purchasing a rug from a fine rug dealer.

Things to consider when using area rugs. 

  • The most common mistake people make is to get one that is too small. An area rug should fit under all of the main furniture in a room.
  • If you have a large room divide up the individual areas and use a different rug for each area, the rugs can be different but should be connected somewhat by a color or pattern.
  • For an average room, there should be anywhere from 8″ – 24″ of space between the edges of the area rug and the walls of the room.  Make sure you center the  rug in the room and the distance between the rug and the wall is similar on all sides.
  • No matter the room size, make sure there is enough room for people to walk on the rug.

Colors and Patterns

  • Area rugs are like art for your floor and are a great way to add color into any room.
  • Area rugs with bold patterns can be great, but make sure that when you place furniture on them the designs are not totally covered.
  • We carry the highest quality of under rug non slip padding, cut on site to fit your rug perfectly so that the rug overlays by half an inch.

Give us a call to schedule an appointment at  your home if you are interested in a custom made area rug.

Tariffs are coming to Vinyl Flooring

October 3, 2018 at 10:25 pm

Luxury vinyl tile

Luxury vinyl tile is the most popular type of flooring currently because it is very durable and affordable.  The cost will be going up soon because of the new tariffs on it.  The tariffs will be starting at 10% in September and going to 25%  in January.  Chinese imports of vinyl flooring  are currently between 55  and 70 percent of the U.S. market.

Many U.S. vinyl flooring and tile makers are pushing for tariffs on Chinese vinyl flooring saying  it will result in more domestic investment and jobs. Importers predict it will lead to higher prices on vinyl products and increase the cost of new homes.

“I can state unequivocally that U.S. manufacturing and jobs would increase if Chinese imports would stop flooding the market,” said Brian Carson, president of the North American flooring business for Calhoun, Ga.-based Mohawk.

Congoleum President and CEO Chris O’Connor said the tariffs will help the U.S. industry maintain a focus on product development and better deal with rising Chinese imports.

On the other side of the battle are many flooring industry executives who are against the proposed 10% tariffs on Chinese imports saying the likely price hikes will hurt the industry.

The bottom line is that the tariffs will likely have a small effect now but come January they could have a much larger effect when the 25% tariff starts.  If you are considering vinyl tile for your home of offices you would be advised to start looking now and buy what you need before the end of the year. Vinyl tile is very affordable and durable which is why it is the most popular type of flooring currently. We will have to wait and see what happens in January if the new tariffs take place.

Commercial Carpet installation

September 10, 2018 at 11:33 pm

When you are installing carpeting in a business you need durability. Commercial carpet is designed specifically for the traffic that businesses get. Commercial carpet comes in a  variety of choices in style, fiber, and color.  Carpeting can add personality to the work environment from formal to laid back. In hotels it can provide directional cues. In healthcare carpet can be calming. It can provide sound dampening in a cubicle setting or a computer lab.

Commercial carpet should be easy to maintain. Most are made flat and dense so they vacuum easily and be easy to clean.  You have lots of options to choose from so you will want to consult with a professional once you have made the initial considerations.

To match your carpeting to the proper end-use, you should consider:

  • Carpet construction and durability
  • Color Selection
  • Quality and performance requirements
  • Insulation and sound absorption
  • Amount of cushion
  • Cost
  • Maintenance
  • Fire ratings

Define the specific requirements of the facility.

  • Type of facility and the area receiving carpet.
  • How long you would like the carpet to last.
  • Whether access to subfloor is needed.
  • Whether there is modular furniture in the space.
  • On an average day, will there be spills or dirt tracked into the building?
  • What about moisture? If so how much as this will definitely affect a lot of things?
  • Is there exposure to chemicals or sun?
  • What type of traffic and how much? Wheelchairs?  Supply carts?

These are the main concerns. You will also have other concerns  about the installation and how it may disrupt your work environment.  Professional carpet stores and installers will work with you to minimize any disruptions.

Best Flooring company in Denver

August 24, 2018 at 10:54 pm

When you think of the best flooring company what do you expect from them?

  1. The best quality flooring for the price. For carpeting that means the highest quality in terms of the type of carpet you want such as a pet protect or wool carpeting.. For Luxury vinyl tile you are going to want a waterproof LVT that is built to last for a long time and not fade.  Most people do not know this but having an LVT with built in padding or having some sort of underlayment will make it softer to stand on which is important if you spend hours in the kitchen.
  2. The best carpet installation means that the installation is guaranteed for life and that your carpet looks beautiful in every room. Very few companies offer this as they typically use subcontractors and unless you do not like something and bring it up when the job is done you are out of luck. The bottom line is that the life of the carpet will suffer and it will not look as good as it should if it was installed by professionals.
  3. The best price on your flooring is a combination of these factors as you may be able to get a cheaper price on the carpet one place and the installation cheaper somewhere else. For example, the big box stores often advertise free installation on carpeting but they do not tell you that you are getting the cheapest padding available. When you do an upgrade on the padding it is often double the price of what most carpet companies charge. That’s how they can offer free installation as we all know nothing is free.

At Coventry Carpets and Flooring we build upon your dreams and provide you the best flooring and the nicest looking rooms for your home.  We will come out to your house with our mobile showroom or you can come into our showroom, with an appointment, to get ideas for your flooring installation project.

Our design consultants have extensive knowledge and can help guide you through the different types of flooring options and the pros and cons of them in specific rooms in your home.  We are one of very few flooring companies in Denver that actually do their own installations for carpeting and luxury vinyl tile.  In fact,  most other retailers sub out their work and you may never see that installer again.   We are one of the only companies in Denver that guarantee’s the installation for the life of the carpet because we install it.

When you compare the same carpeting, padding and installation price that Coventry provides you against any of our competitors you will find that we are about 20 to 30% less overall and your installation is guaranteed for life!  That is why Coventry is the best flooring company in Denver.

At Coventry Carpets, we don’t just want to sell you carpet one time, we want to provide you this service as long as you are in Denver. We look forward to servicing you and your family for years to come, that’s why 90% of our business is word of mouth referrals.
