How to save money on your next flooring purchase
Flooring is one of those things that, no matter where you look, it often ends up costing you more money than you’d like to spend. Fortunately, Floors Now provides the absolute best prices in Canada on virtually every kind of flooring. Even still, there are still a few ways you can save even more.
Here are 5 tips to keep more money in your jeans while shopping for flooring.
Do It Yourself. When it comes to purchasing your new floor, installation is extra. So, why not take a stab at doing it yourself! If you’ve got some time and are willing to roll up your sleeves, there are a number of easy to install options that can be completed over a single weekend. Pop by your local Floors Now store and ask one of our flooring advisors to show you what’s available.
Purchasing “roll ends”. If you know the size of your room and you aren’t really fussy about what kind of carpet you’re looking for, “roll ends” could be a great option for you. These are pre-cut, cash and carry items that are often priced much less than something a little more custom. At Floors Now, we offer a variety of styles, features and colors to choose from – offering something for anyone that may be looking for an affordable solution
Bring Old Flooring Back To Life. Rather than investing in new carpeting for your home, you may find that underneath that existing carpet is hardwood waiting to be refinished and brought back to life. Investigate what tools you’ll need to properly remove and refinish the old and make it look new again. Once done, pop by your local Floors Now store to add a little bit of style with one of our many area rugs in stock.
Go for the higher end. It may not seem like you’re saving money if you decide to go with a higher end purchase, but the truth is – you are. Why? Well, when it comes to durability and available features (stain resistance, quality of materials, warranty, etc) the extra money you put into your new flooring now may end up saving you hundreds or thousands of dollars down the road. Think of your flooring as a long-term investment that needs to meet your needs now and into the future. That little extra you’ll pay in square footage now, could save you from going back to the bank down the road.
Talk to your Flooring Advisor. Life happens. If you’re like most people, when you’re shopping for flooring you’re not really thinking about what could happen to your flooring in the future. For example, did you know that you could void the warranty on your new carpet if you don’t have it professionally cleaned regularly? Same thing for flooring that may be installed near a window where it could be exposed to ultra violet light, varying temperatures and moisture. By having a conversation with your flooring advisor about where and how your flooring will be used, you’ll be better able to know what options are available to save you from pulling out the pocket book sooner than you’d like.
