To begin planning for your new floor, you can start by browsing our Flooring Guide, which has all the information you need in one place. You can also begin shopping through our flooring categories, including carpet, hardwood, luxury vinyl, tile, and laminate. We also carry exotics like bamboo and cork, which are considered sustainable, eco-friendly flooring choices. As you look, you can use our innovative Room Visualizer to effectively see how each product will transform your space.
Although our professionals will take final measurements before the installation, an important initial step is developing an estimate of the size of your room. You can bring this information to our sales associates, who will use it to order your floors and give you a more accurate cost analysis. You can measure on your own to get a rough idea or hire one of our local professionals for precise measurements from the start. If you want to begin on your own right away, here are step-by-step instructions for measuring and calculating your square footage. Once you know your measurements, you can work with our local experts to build a budget that works for you. We also offer special financing so you can accomplish your bigger flooring goals by making smaller payments over time.
It’s not all about budgets, measuring, and sorting through flooring categories. The most important part of buying a new floor is looking through inspiration to find a style you love. You can browse this season’s top trends with the latest edition of our Beautiful Design Made Simple magazine, which you can also find in our store for free. We recommend saving ideas you like and sharing them with our experts during your consultation. We’ll then be able to point you to products that match your decor vision and your performance needs, whether that means a stylish, stain-resistant carpet, or elegant hardwood with ultra scratch and dent resistance.
