I had purchased carpet and flooring 13 years ago from Bixby Knolls, now it was time to replace carpet, I shopped around but was so happy that I went back to Bixby Knolls, everyone was very helpful and friendly. It took a few trips back and forth to get the right color for me. I just had the carpet installed this past weekend and could not be more pleased!! The installers were on time, clean and very professional!! Highly recommend!!

Best price of the seven stores I shopped hardwood flooring. Jim helped me find exactly what I'd been searching for. Their installers did a great job. They cleaned up each day and took care to protect my walls & furniture. Highly recommend.

I bought my carpet from Bixby Knolls Carpet about five years ago. I loved the carpet, but after I'd had it about a year, it had stretched out and there were rolls and loose spots. I called Jim, the man I had purchased the carpet from and he arranged to have someone come out and "restretch" the carpet, no problem. It is now three years later and I once again have the same problem. I've never seen this before except with extremely old carpet (like at grandma's house); my carpet still looks new and is in great repair except for this issue. So I called BK Carpet, spoke with Jeff this time and was told they could send someone out to do it for about $150. I don't know about you but never before in my lifetime have I needed to get my carpet stretched and now I've needed to do it twice in five years! To me, that means it's either a product issue or an installation issue; in either case Bixby Knolls should have offered to fix it. Jeff told me that my carpet was "probably covered by a warranty" last time which is why they offered to fix it for free. I hope the $150 was worth losing a customer for good. It's really too bad. Jim was wonderful, I love my carpet, but I won't be going back.

We are glad they were recommended to us for floor installation. Laminate and carpet of choice. They were prompt, professional and delivered an excellent product and service! All persons we dealt with were polite and helpful and delivered as promised. I highly recommend them.

I have been in several carpeting showrooms recently, and none have been as beautiful and welcoming as this one. The owners clearly demonstrate pride of ownership and keep the premises looking clean and inviting. Not only that, Vicky, who helped me look at berbers today, was so pleasant, down to earth, and savvy. Her customer service skills are tops! She is a real person, sincere, genuine, and friendly--not phony and out for a sale! (My type of person to do business with!) I would shop here for my floor covering in the future without feeling the need to shop around; but unfortunately I'm moving to Wilmington, North Carolina on Wednesday. Very impressed with this showroom! Oh... and I forgot to mention that I was equally impressed with the gentleman who assisted Vicky & me briefly, whom I believe may be Vicky's husband. What an awesome couple! HIGHLY recommend!

We hired Bixby Knolls Carpet to demo out our master bathroom and shower including our upstairs 2nd bathroom and laundry room. Replacing all tile on the floor and walls. We also hired Bixby Knolls to replace our carpeting with sculptured carpet and replacing our baseboards. Friendly and nice all the workers went over and beyond the normal to complete our project in a timely manner. The initial design by Jim could not have been better we are very happy with the end result Also, Vicky was very informative, professional and extremely easy to work with. We compared pricing at other companies but found Bixby Knolls to be more reasonable. Jim recommended other options that the other companies did not. Their competitors were not thorough enough and left my wife and I bewildered as to what was being estimated leaving us to wonderabout too many potential problems. We are probably some of the pickiest people on earth and Jim, Vicky and Bixby Knolls employees really hit it out of the ballpark on our project. Thank you everyone that made our project a reality.
I had a dishwasher break and leak, ruining our laminate floors. I wanted to replace the laminate floors with a waterproof product. On the sales end I worked with Vicky. She was very helpful at helping me find the right product that would work for me, which was Shaw's Floorte luxury vinyl plank. Vicky was no-pressure, very informative, accommodating, and gave me plenty of time to make a decision. I had contacted five other local flooring companies for estimates and Bixby Knolls was the lowest bidder that was able to perform my total scope of work. After checking references I decided to go with Bixby Knolls. Chase and Zack were my installers. They were friendly; worked very efficiently (finished 99% of the job yesterday after 3.5 days instead of the full estimated 4); exhibited high quality workmanship (they did a better job than the crew that installed my original floors, the finish carpenters who installed my original base boards, and the painters that painted them); and they also had a great eye to detail (they spotted some planks that came from the factory with minor blemishes and had them replaced out quickly). As mentioned be fore the job is 99% done. All that is left is the installation of two transition strips that are on back order. So far I am extremely pleased with the the whole experience. I would not hesitate to use Bixby Knolls Carpet again and highly recommend them. ** Update 5/9/2016: I forgot to update the review once the job was completed. Chase came back out the following week once the transition strips were in stock. He completed the job in a little over a half hour. The flooring still looks great!
I have been using Bixby since the late 1990's and have never been disappointed! I have been extremely satisfied, with their prices, customer service and the quality work of their installers. There is so many other competitors to choose from and I appreciate there hard work and ethics and I would recommend them to my friends and family.
I called to get prices on mannington. At least 25% more than other places. Still, I won't knock them since they're not a preferred mannington dealer. I gave them an option to see if they would be more competitive for mannington and they never called me back.
Always friendly and accommodating, the owner and salespeople are well informed about the vast inventory and are very helpful. Best of all, their installers are experienced, courteous and provide excellent customer service for both carpeting and hard floors. I highly recommend this family owned business.
Can I give ZERO stars? I'm in the building trade and quiet a bit how things work behind the scene. Stopped by the other day and got some quotes on floor samples (I took notes) so when I came back and brought the samples back I was told I would get a phone call within hour. That "hour" turned into more like 26 hours...already unprofessional. Then came the quote...first of all he quoted me a much higher price per SF than he told me in the store, then he argued it was my mistake. Well, I wasn't alone that day. Also, I never got a "trade" discount offered which is standard practice. I asked he would email me the quote and name of the material...guess what. Never got it. Final: I find this place to be very unprofessional and when you see how much competition is out there I would suggest to avoid this place at all cost. Don't get burned. I found a different place with a much better price and product.

We looked at EVERY carpet store in Orange County prior to deciding to buy carpet from Bixby Knolls. Our salesman, JON G., was excellent, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. We had other things that needed to be done prior to the carpet installation, and JON G. worked with us in ordering, shipping and storing our carpet and awaiting our call to set up the actual installation. JON, himself, came out to measure, and came back a few days prior to actual installation to confirm measurements. Our installer, JERRY, was beyond incredible!!!! He is truly a master of his craft!!!!!!! He arrived exactly when promised with his son and another young man, and worked diligently to help us move furniture back and forth, from room to room, over a 4-day period. These guys were ALWAYS cheerful and helpful and went above and beyond to help us every day. The installation is excellent, the carpet we chose is perfect (Mohawk, Aladdin), and the entire experience made less painful by these wonderful people. Thank you so much Bixby Knolls and JERRY for going above and beyond with customer service!!!!!!

Nice to work with at the beginning and that's how they get you hooked. They make careless mistakes and then the customer has to pay for them literally. They installed the wrong color since they didn't confirm the color name or number when they ordered it. Good thing is that it didn't cost to return and get the correct color (the manufacturer has a customer satisfraction guarentee deal), but Bixby charged us to reinstall the correct carpet even though it was their fault. What a hassle. It's not like their prices were any better than other places. So just do yourself a favor and go somewhere else. You will have peace of mind that where ever you go, it will be more professional and it will be done correctly the first and only time.

After a water leak damaged our laminate flooring, our contractor set us up with Jim@ Bixby Knolls Carpet. I walked in and actually found way too many choices for replacements for our laminate. Jim gave me the tour, let me have all the time I needed to pick out some samples, and even helped me load them into he car. The best part was yet to come. Their installers came, did a great job laying down the flooring, and left each day without so much as leaving a trace that they were there at all. It was a great experience working with them. The installers were very meticulous. Thank you so much. I will be spreading the word!

We recently bought a house in the area with wood floors in all of the bedrooms and living room. We weren't able to enjoy these rooms with our growing baby. We were unsure about the best way to bring in carpet and keep the wood floors for the future. Large area rugs are crazy expensive. Steve at Bixby Knolls discussed the various options with us. We decided to go with bound edge carpets with felt backing in the bedrooms and a nonslip backing in the living room. Our selection included three colors of Shaw Carpet in two styles. Steve was nice enough to come out to assist with the measurements and we had the carpet a week later. We are very happy with the service and our baby loves playing in all of the rooms now. Their guidance, solutions and no pressure sale is well appreciated. Thank you Steve and Bixby Knolls Carpet!

We used Bixby Knolls Carpet seven years ago. Our entire home was renovated. They tiled two showers, put a back splash in our kitchen, carpeted every closet, and put hardwood throughout our home. I can't say enough about them. Their contractors even put out a small fire that some painters I hired started in my kitchen. If they were not there that day, I don't know what might have happened. Thank you BNC, everything still looks great!

My wife and I have always trusted in Bixby Knolls carpets to take care of all of our family's flooring, and they have never failed to please our large families,and friends flooring needs. We have bought our Carpets and Wood flooring from them for years and have been very pleased with how professional the staff and installers were. My daughter and her husband just had their flooring done by Bixby and they were very clean and professional,and they did a wonderful job on their floor, it looks so beautiful. My wife and I will be getting our Kitchen done again soon, will be putting carpet in our Master bedroom and Laminate in the Kitchen I am confident in Bixby to continue to do wonderful work for us and our friends. And about Mr.Steve he always makes sure that he does his best to get the job done. He is such a kind and professional staff member of Bixby. He even called my son-inlaw on the weekend to assure him that eveything was on schedule and set to go....I would recommend Bixby Knolls carpets Mr. Kristian C.

Bixby Knolls Carpet was super knowledgeable and upfront right off the bat. My husband and I felt comfortable with them and didn't feel like they were being pushy. Steve was great to work with. The problems came when it came time to install. We hired BKC to install carpet upstairs, hardwood downstairs and marble in the master bathroom and all guest bathrooms. When installing the wood, the workers messed up and stopped short in two areas which eventually had to be ripped out and redone. They also put two 11" planks of wood in the middle of our downstairs bedroom when the rest of the planks were at least 3 feet long. These also had to be ripped out and redone. After this had all been fixed, we started seeing large gaps between the boards- large enough for us to be able to peek glimpses of the unfinished wood underneath. Steve had stated that it was done on purpose because the wood needs room to expand. First of all, that's what quarter rounds are for and secondly, I've lived in three houses and been to tons of houses with hardwood floors and there was not one instance where there were gaps in the hardwood let alone gaps big enough to show the light, unfinished wood underneath. Steve had the wood manufacturer come out to the house to take a look at it because he thought it might have been because of a faulty product but the manufacturer stated that the installer just needed to clean it up and close up the gaps. Steve agreed to have his installer close up the gaps but that never happened. Not only that, we've noticed that there are splintered planks of wood from when the installer cut the wood. There are little pieces splintering off of our hardwood floors! There is also wood glue that oozed out and dried. This can be cleaned but BKC sure didn't make the effort do to it. I was hoping that since carpet is more straight forward, I wouldn't run into any issues with the quality of their work. In every area that the carpet meets the bathroom floor, there were nails that completely poked out all along the line! The carpet also did not meet the bathroom floor cleanly. The installer left large and inconsistent gaps between the marble and the carpet. Not only that, looking down the hall, you can see that the carpet wasn't tightly installed along the wall because the carpet is wavy along the wall. I got them to tap down the nails (they had to rip out the carpet again) but now whenever I step in that area, I can feel with my feet that the carpet is not flush to the ground- there is space between the carpet and floor. I didn't want to bother with them anymore so didn't bother with the rest of the issues. All in all, there is a huge lack of supervision of BKC's installers. After I reported the first few mistakes, Steve should have been watching his installers and their work closely to make sure they didn't make any MORE mistakes. Instead, the installers continued to work unsupervised and did a sloppy, horrible job. I would not recommend BKC for your flooring needs.

Bixby Knolls Carpet It's not like you drive past this place and expect much to be inside. It's in a mid-century store front that most people pass at 40mph. But, guess what? The place is PACKED with flooring materials. Hundreds of types of carpet, hardwood and tile. My man Frank "H" in there has always provided good advice and good deals with quality installation. His dad started the place something like forty years ago. I've had at least five jobs in the last 12 months done by him and his people. If you're looking for carpet in the 90807, be sure to stop by and talk to the humans at Bixby Knolls Carpet. They also have a store somewhere in the OC that is also branded Bixby Knolls Carpet, which confuses the people there who have no idea where Bixby Knolls is.
