The idea of home has changed a lot over the past two years. Our lifestyles have shifted to where we spend more time at home, causing additional wear and tear on our floors – not to mention the insistent desire to update, refresh and improve our spaces.
That’s where City Carpets in San Rafael comes in.
The People In Your Neighborhood
City Carpets is owned by Marin native Leigh Bakhtiari (a Certified Flooring Tech) and her husband, Hossein. Bakhtiari lives in her hometown of Mill Valley, where she and Hossein raised their five kids.
Bakhtiari is a force in her community, serving as the vice chair of sustainability for the San Rafael Chamber. She also sits on the Green Business Committee, The East San Rafael Working Group and The Council of Chambers DEI Task Force.
Her multifaceted advocacy continues through her role as regional network group coordinator for Carpet One. More than just a flooring covering retailer, Carpet One supports the nonprofit Tunnel To Towers Foundation, serving as the exclusive flooring supplier for its Smart Homes program for “catastrophically injured veterans and first responders.”
Additional members of the City Carpets sales and design team all live in Marin and have been with the company for over 20 years, enabling them to understand and anticipate the issues that are unique to our area. This provides clients with the personal touch of a mom and pop shop alongside the knowledge, depth of products, amazing warranties and pricing only available through a nationwide co-op. The company prides itself on staying up to date with the latest design and flooring trends, having the best quality products, well-trained staff and outstanding installers.
The ‘Beautiful Guarantee’
Flooring impacts the overall design and beauty of a room. The City Carpets design team knows the latest design trends, and their national co-op relationship allows them to offer an expansive selection of products. The staff even provides design advice at no extra charge, adding an extra personal touch to in-home consultations. They also offer a unique program called the “Beautiful Guarantee.” If they install a carpet or flooring in your home and you don’t love the style or color, they will change it for you!
A Focus on Sustainability
Creating a healthy environment in our homes and caring for our planet has always been important to Marin residents, but the events of recent years have accelerated the trend exponentially. Clients are seeking sustainable options, produced from responsibly sourced and natural resources. City Carpets has flooring collections featuring natural products like wool, seagrass, jute, linoleum, cork and bamboo that can contribute to a healthier living environment with no harsh chemicals to impact your indoor air quality.
The sheer nature of being at home more has created wear and tear on our homes, causing us to consider more durable and waterproof options. Marin is known for its active outdoor and dog-friendly lifestyle. City Carpets has a broad range of durable product options that hold up to the high traffic of a busy family.
A Step Ahead
Many home-improvement projects have been stalled by supply chain issues in the past year. The team at City Carpets anticipated this issue and brought in ample inventory for the fall so clients wouldn’t have long wait times to complete their project.
Whether you are building, revitalizing or remodeling, the City Carpets team can help you with all your flooring design and installation projects. With deep roots in the Marin community, this locally owned store understands your needs and can deliver on your desires!
