Since 1983, the foot-traffic experts at LeCarpets have paved homes with quality carpeting and flooring. The shop covers customers’ sales tax and gives home-owning feet confidence with a five-year installation warranty. Shop flooring according to three designated quality levels: good ($23.31/yd. or $2.59/ft.); better ($33.21/yd. or $3.69/ft.); or best ($45/yd. or $5/ft.). Shoppers can browse thousands of different colors, styles, and toe-tickling levels of carpeting, including Stainmaster UltraLife carpet. Exotic hardwoods imbue homes with a classic elegance and ideal Superball surface, and durable vinyl from Mannington, Armstrong, and other brands keep kitchens and bathrooms gleaming and easy to clean. LeCarpet visitors will also discover a wide range of laminates and ceramic tiles shaped like famous rectangles.
The team at PPG Porter Paints has dedicated 90 years to sprucing up homes with the company's revered brand of vivid paints, stains, and primers. Silken Touch paint ($54.19+/gal.) stands ready to replace previous wall and ceiling embellishments, such as presidential murals painted in mustard. Permanizer ($67.65+/gal.), which carries a lifetime warranty against the development of flaking and other defects, helps to prevent al fresco fortifications from cracking and peeling during supersoaker season. Acri-Shield ($55.97+/gal.) lasts for long periods indoors and out, and coats outer walls easily in the hands of both professionals and casual painters. Amicable staff members roam the aisles and are eager to provide product recommendations for any home, office, or abandoned grain silo.
Furniture Depot's collection of Ashley-brand Director-style recliners, available in three different colors, stretch nest featherers into pillow-topped decadence. Sink supinely into plush, stylish cushions while the rocking abilities of the chair sway its newly serene cargo. The camel-hued recliner swaddles sleepy legs and smarting backs in soft, tan upholstery without the spitting of its desert beast counterpart. Sage- and chocolate-colored thrones join their camel brethren in showing off earth-toned hides that complement a variety of color schemes. Though this deal does not include shipping, Furniture Depot will deliver recliners for an additional fee.

Since 1979, Criswell Furniture has supplied high-quality and custom furniture to discerning denizens of Alabama and the Florida panhandle. In-store shoppers can sample snuggles on items such as the stone and camel loveseat ($349.95), a sand-and-bone color combination more comforting than stepping on triceratops jaws at the beach. Fatigued footsies can kick back and relax on a chocolate-brown ottoman ($149.95), or rest on one of the 400T Three-Pack tables ($199.95 for the set), despite sparks of protest from the robot-maid. Browsers in need of help are invited to fill out a Perfect Furniture process application to filter through the shop's stock of home goods based on their available space, preferred color palate, and attachment to their siracha dispenser. Criswell's staffers use the survey results in conjunction with a virtual room planner to find ideal matches and send corresponding photos to clients through email or e-carrier pigeon.
More than a decade ago, Harrell Spencer landed a job with a carpet-cleaning company. He enjoyed his work so much that he eventually bought the business and dubbed it Ultimate Carpet Cleaning. A resident of Memphis for 34 years, Harrell keeps his good name in the community by quoting honest prices and backing his work with a satisfaction guarantee. After a light preconditioner, he extracts carpet stains with deep-steam-cleaning techniques and eliminates odor-causing bacteria with live enzymes. In addition to purging rugs, Harrell scrubs ceramic tiles by hand and dries them with high-pressure heat to extract grease and grime. Once they’re clean, he can seal the grout to give them a glossy finish that repels dirt so well you can't even write dirty language on it. In the event of an emergency, Harrell springs into action both day and night to help repair water damage.
