From its modest origins in a garage, Appliance Factory Outlet & Mattresses has blossomed into a full-fledged appliance-vending behemoth with 14 locations throughout Colorado. The outlet compiles an enormous collection of handy household appliances from top-quality brands such as GE, Whirlpool, LG, KitchenAid, Sealy,and Tempur-pedic.
At each location, knowledgeable staffers shepherd patrons through sprawling showrooms, which collectively tout more than 150,000 pieces of equipment, including laundry machinery, kitchen appliances, microwaves, and macrowaves. They can special order items not in stock or tap into a stash of spare parts to repair busted apparatus. In addition to appliances, the staff can point patrons toward a fleet of mattresses and overstock items.
With almost two decades of experience under its environmentally friendly belt, the fastidious team at Eco Carpet Cleaning goes beyond its moniker, making sparkling surfaces of carpets, upholstery, and air ducts and doling out natural, healthy lawn-care solutions. When scrubbing down textiles, no hallway or stair carpet escapes the cleansing touch of the team's dirt extractor, and upholstery cleaning sucks away odors, stains, and generations of dust-mite civilizations. Eco Carpet Cleaning's technicians maintain lawn health at both residential and commercial spaces, aerating lawns to ensure light, water, and nutrients penetrate deep into the soil, and feeding quality seed with locally made organic fertilizer collected from hormone-treatment-free animals.

Miss Jenny's Dry Cleaning carts disheveled duds from doorstep to store and back again, returning crisp clothes that have been brightened by a human touch. The garment chauffeur swings by most of the 33 service areas on a regular, two-day-per-week schedule, picking up dingy shirts or cardboard suits in personalized bags issued to each household. Service days vary by area, but orders are consistently returned gleaming and fresh on the next regularly scheduled service day. Caretakers follow up each cleansing with a thorough inspection, carefully purging rogue stains, repairing small problems such as worn or broken buttons, polishing rusty chainmail, and hand finishing most items.
The light technicians at Illuminations by Design aid patrons as they navigate more than 1,200 light fixtures on display that range from chandeliers and lamps to outdoor mounts and spotlights.

Lamps and shades ($12+) offer sleek, modern shapes or traditional white bulb skirts, and walls find scintillating vertical clingers in weathered lattice torchiere ($299.85). The trio of modern propellers on a chrome fan ($501) spins over rooms decorated with home accents such as clocks and elephantine bookends ($141).
