About Our Store in Arkansas

Our hours may vary during holidays:Little Rock |North Little RockSherwood





Akel’s Carpet One is more than a carpet store. We have been serving the community for 35 years, providing excellent service and the best value in town on luxury vinyl, tile, hardwood, carpet, cabinets, and more. Carpet One is the largest flooring company and supports Akel’s Carpet One’s buying power. Therefore, we can bring you quality products with the best warranties and pricing. In addition to residential flooring in Arkansas, Akel’s Carpet One can handle all your cabinet or flooring needs for commercial, multi-family and rental properties in eight states and 27 cities. Akel’s Carpet One treats you like family striving to “Make Your Home, Beautiful, For Less!”



Before starting Akel’s Carpet One, Richard Akel traveled the world playing tennis professionally. He then returned to his hometown in Little Rock and started a lumber yard in 1987 — the same year the first of his three daughters was born. That lumber yard eventually became one of the most successful flooring companies in the state — Akel’s Carpet One and beyond. Now, it’s a family affair here at Akel’s, with four of five family members working to continue the business into the next generation. Richard has always done whatever it takes, is a family man, turns ideas into realities, acts with integrity and treats everyone like family. These traits are deeply embedded in Akel’s Carpet One culture.



Most weeks, Richard travels to lead his teams and grow the business, looking out for his community to bring you the best flooring prices. He’s a humble man, and we are proud of what he has created.



Akel’s Carpet One is grateful for the support of everyone in the community, and we love supporting the community, too! Akel’s Carpet One loves encouraging sports and supporting youth, and therefore we support organizations such as Youth Home, Hope Ball, youth basketball, football and cheerleading teams. Working at Akel’s makes you feel like you are always in a sports tournament: may the best win, in all the best ways — may the best win by giving our customers the best value and experience. Here at Akel’s, no project is too challenging for us. Construction can get stressful, especially right now with COVID. So, we are thankful for our team and proud of their work and expertise.



The team alongside Akel’s Carpet One is hardworking and will do whatever it takes to “Make Your Floors, Beautiful For Less!” We have had the same team members work with us from the beginning, and they have been on the team because they believed in the possibilities and embraced Akel’s to be the best, and helped create what Akel’s Carpet One is today. Akel’s Carpet One flooring and cabinet specialists have a combined 100 years of experience in flooring. We are the experts!



Another thing that separates Akel’s Carpet One from the rest — each Akel’s Carpet One flooring and cabinet specialist manages your installation from A to Z. You have one point of contact throughout the project’s life that ensures your installation is set up for success and lasts for years. Suppose there is an unexpected delay or unforeseen events. In that case, our team does whatever it takes to make sure everything is communicated timely and correctly, and the job gets done right!



Now, more than ever, your home is where love grows, and we are honored to be a part of that journey. We get so much joy each time we transform a customer’s space: “Making It Beautiful, for Less!” whether it’s updating your old, uncomfortable carpet into the pretty, extremely comfortable carpet that your family can sit on the floor and make new memories on; or changing your kitchen to be functional and allowing you to cook and host for your family meals; or it’s building a sanctuary bathroom for you that is relaxing and will enable you to escape the day to day.



In the past 35 years, Akel’s Carpet One has served more than 25,000 customers in Central Arkansas, and we hope to serve you soon! Please email for any questions or project needs.
