Family members of the Slidell and Baton Rouge Carpet World team

[ CARPET WORLD ] Family-owned business provides variety of commercial and residential flooring WHEN ESTUARDO ORANTES’ grandfather began selling flooring in 1942, he was determined to provide the highest quality flooring and the most professional installation for area businesses and homes. Although many things have changed since then, Carpet World’s founding principles of honesty and family-style customer service have not. Sixty-seven years later, Orantes continues to honor his grandfather’s values and work ethic at the Baton Rouge location of Carpet World by offering free, onsite consultations and estimates for commercial and residential customers alike, while staying abreast of upcoming flooring trends to ensure his team thoroughly understands the ins and outs of all flooring products and services. “Many customers don’t realize that we will come to their company or their home and help with the flooring process from beginning to end,” said Orantes. “From recommending which product will work best for certain areas, to advising on which designs and colors will fit in the space, to making sure the installation is done quickly and professionally, Carpet World has the people and skills to provide an ideal flooring experience.” Carpet World customers range from the River Bend Entergy nuclear plant in St. Francisville to various schools, hospitals and homeowners, and they are testaments to the company’s commitment to professionalism and customer

The big differentiator between us and our competitors is that when a business owner or homeowner comes to Carpet World for new floors, they’re coming to a place that’s been doing this for 67 years. ESTUARDO ORANTES, OWNER

service. Whether installing flooring at an area retirement home or tiling the entranceway of a residence, the Carpet World team strives to offer top quality products and delivery of services. Dealing with flooring every day, Orantes understands the importance of a job well done—and how deeply that affects the customer. “Purchasing and installing floors— whether tile, hardwood or carpet—is a huge investment, so it’s important to us that everything from selection to installation goes well,” he says. “If a customer goes with a flooring product that isn’t a good fit for the area they are covering, they could lose a lot of money down the road. We want to make sure businesses and homes have the right floor type and look, but it’s equally important to us that the floor is installed professionally and efficiently.” And though building styles and decorating trends are ever-changing, Carpet World remains steadfast in keeping up with those trends while still providing quality products and work. “Things change from year to year and region to region, and we are well versed in those shifts as well as what’s popular in the area,” said the LSU graduate. “The big differentiator between us and our competitors is that when a business owner or homeowner comes to Carpet World for new floors, they’re coming to a place that’s been doing this for 67 years. My first job was Carpet World, and we’re still here.”
