When you’re Not Sure – Use the Walk Away Tactic

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Tips and Advice, Uncategorized

When confronted with a wealth of choices on what to purchase, whether it’s flooring or other design elements, it’s easy to get confused. This can lead to purchases you later regret. There may be a point when you can make the best decision by not deciding at that moment. Taking a day to walk away and consider your options at home may help you clearly define your goals and determine what will work best. If possible, take photos or samples of your choices with you. When you see them in your home, or with the perspective of time, you will make a better decision.

Now, every store wants to generate a sale, but smart stores like ours think it’s more important to generate a satisfied customer. Particularly for a large purchase, a good flooring consultant will understand and appreciate your need to ponder. If you do want to bring samples home or take a photo, please just ask.

Once you’re home, set everything aside for at least a few hours, if not a day. Then consider your options with fresh eyes. Ask the opinions of others in your household, if any. Chances are very good that you will find one choice stands out over the others. When you buy it, you can relax in the realization that your decision was well thought-out and will work well for you and your home.
