Kane Carpet is a carpet distributor based out of Calhoun, Georgia that’s known for providing consumers and contractors with an array of carpet at competitive prices. While they tend to focus on woven patterns, you can also find a variety of classic and modern designs in the company’s catalog. In our Kane Carpet review, we’re going to see how the company compares against other competitors in the carpet world.
About Kane Carpet
Kane Carpet has been in the industry since 1947, and today they have a network that spans from North America to the Middle East. While their main focus is on broadloom carpet, they have an interesting program called Endless Rugs. Whether you want a rug to match your new carpet or simply want to design one from the ground up, Kane allows you to do that.
Through their program, you can create your masterpiece from over a thousand different combinations. You can choose the pattern, size, color, and even the edging in their Endless Rug program. They are also known for their proprietary fiber called Eurolon, which is used in all of their rugs and carpets.
Eurolon™ Carpet Fiber
When you’ve been in business for more than 50 years, it’s not uncommon to see companies launch new lines and modernize with the times. Kane took things a step further by introducing their own carpet fiber to the market in the form of Eurolon™.
Eurolon™ fiber is constructed using heatset super-fine synthetic yarns. Carpets made from these fibers are anti-static and anti-microbial, so you won’t have to worry about bacteria or being shocked as you walk across a room. As it’s also a solution-dyed fiber, the colors will stay true for years to come and they are considered non-toxic as well.
Kane Carpet Collections
If you’re interested in purchasing carpet from Kane, there are two things to keep in mind above everything else. Most of their carpet is patterned and made using Wilton Weave construction. All carpets are made from Eurolon fiber, although there are a handful of styles that blend synthetics with their proprietary fiber.
Browsing Kane’s carpet catalog online is relatively straightforward. You can search for products directly or use filters on the sidebar to narrow the field by color, style, design, or collection. On that note, there are more than 40 collections at the time of this review, but around half only have 2-5 styles at present. The easiest way to find what you’re looking for is to use the Design Type or Primary Color filter.
In our research, we found that the Aquarelle Collection is one of their larger and tamer collections.
With Aquarelle, you’ll find close to a dozen styles including the eye-catching Significance and the dark vibe of Artistic.
If you’re looking for something a bit more vibrant, we highly recommend checking out their Art Deco line.
Art Deco Collection
The Art Deco Collection features some of the more unique patterns including the retro Cubi and Lincoln Club.
Motivo and Yuma have a Southwestern vibe while Posso is something you just need to see for yourself.
The Festival Collection is just as colorful and has a few patterns perfect for kids’ rooms like Celebration and Joy. Alternatively, if you’re in the market for something with a classic appeal, the Riviera Collection may be the right choice for your home.
The Flatweave Collection also tones things down with solid colors like Mocha, Hazel, and Moonbeam. It’s also one of the only collections without colorful patterns along with Rajistan carpet from their Handmade Wool collection.
While you can find something unique from any of the company’s collections, Kane’s Affordable Luxury Collection has something for everyone. There are 34 carpets to choose from including classic patterns like French Scroll and animal printed carpet.
Unique Carpet from Kane
While all the collections we’ve listed have patterns that appeal to a wide audience, the company also has a few collections that stand out. The first is the Always Green Collection, a specialty series that’s designed for the outdoors, but could be used inside in certain situations.
This collection has three types of artificial grass with Torino, Venice, and Palermo. All are made from Polyethylene, but if you’re looking for something softer consider the Shaggy Wool Collection. There is only one style available at this time with Scopare, but it is hand-tufted carpet that’s made from wool.
You’ll only find four styles of carpet in the Asterya Collection, but they are all “Space Dyed” using a unique technique that provides some interesting results like Pure Feeling in Vibrant.
Two other examples of this method can be found in the Prismatic Collection with Advanced and Cut Above which are solution and space-dyed.
Kane Carpet Cost and Availability
As a distributor, you cannot purchase carpet from Kane directly. If you have a contractor or carpet company you are considering using, you’ll need to let them know the collection and style you’re interested in. For these reasons you cannot obtain pricing without going through a carpet company, although you can find one that carries their products using the locator tool on their site.
Kane has a broad selection from a style standpoint, and we feel like there really should be something for almost everyone across their collections.That includes homeowners that want something unique like the company’s Space Dyed carpets along with traditional styles from the Affordable Luxury Collection. Unfortunately, they don’t offer as many fibers as other competitors, so if you’re interested in Wool, Polysilk and other popular synthetics, you’ll want to look elsewhere.
