Legato Carpet system
 
Has anyone installed legato carpet squares from Home Depot? If so, how much were they and do you like the results?

Legato is the lower end of the Milliken line. It is still a good carpet, but you will have to compare with higher end to see the difference. Softer, better yarns on the good stuff.HD calls it Legato and it has wavy ends to put together.
Everyone else calles it Tesserea and it has straight lines.
Both go together well.
I have finished 1000 sq foot basements with it and had excellent success.
Especially when we work with a neat design.


You in AK too?

Hey,

I am a 19 yr old girl and have successfully laid over 350sq ft of legato by myself. Its great stuff to work with, and if you take the time to go over the seams and pull out the fibers, the lines are almost invisible right from the start. I found a knitting needle point helped alot when it came to this.

The instructions reference a cutting template on the back of the box. I am not seeing anything remotely resembling a template on the outside, inside, or in the box. Did yours come with this template? If so, what did it look like? If not, was it still easy to manage the cuts? Maybe I am just being an idiot (wouldn't be the first time!) but I don't want to start laying and cutting pieces until I am sure. Thanks.
