Bryer Carpet & Blinds is a family owned and operated store offering high quality floor and window coverings. From floors to walls, they cover it all!
In 1981 twin brothers, Daryl and Dave Bryer, the "Bryer Brothers", established Gemini Carpet Cleaning. A full-service carpet, upholstery, janitorial, and restoration cleaning company. They quickly became one of the most reputable carpet cleaning companies in Lincoln with a large and loyal customer base.
Fast forward five years, the twins decided to expand on their knowledge of carpet and opened the doors at Bryer Brothers Rug Company. At the time they offered everything from floor coverings and window blinds to paint and wallpaper. Still located at 2344 South 13th Street, only the name has changed.
At Bryer Carpet & Blinds you will still find a wide selection of colorful carpets, luxury vinyl, exotic hardwood, custom window blinds and more! In addition, you will meet with qualified design consultants to help you choose the perfect products for your home or office, you will also find some of the most experienced installers to complete the project for you!
Forty years later, The Twins and their staff have continued to build lifelong relationships with their clients. They are very humbled and proud of their businesses and their reputation in the community.
