The Carpet Buying Process

Written by Dolphin Blogger on . Posted in Uncategorized

Whether it’s your first time purchasing carpet, or you just need help tracking down the perfect solution for your home, our sales team is happy to walk you through every step of the buying process.

Step 1: Determine your budget

Renovating and decorating your home is an important investment, and no one knows better than you what budget will work best for your needs. Provide your sales expert with your desired price range, and he or she will be able to lay out the options.

You’ll be able to compare the highest-end options to the cost-saving solutions we have to offer and make a choice that feels right for your situation.

Step 2: Learn about carpet

When you choose a carpet, it is important to understand your options when it comes to construction, fiber, and styles. Come with an understanding of your needs. For example, you may want a carpet with long-lasting durability. You’ll be able to choose between several synthetic fibers, including nylon and polyester.

Your sales expert will match your style preferences with a carpet that will suit your lifestyle. You may like the look of berber, but we don’t recommend it for families with pets due to its tendency to snag on nails and claws.

Whether you’re drawn to patterned, plush or textured pile, each is constructed differently with different weight and density that will impact its performance and function within the space you’re designing. Our team is knowledgeable about all the ins and outs of carpet that you’ll need to learn before making the best possible decision.

 

Step 3: Get a quote

You may have heard the old adage, “measure twice, cut once!” This holds true especially for carpet.

Once you’ve made a decision, it’s time to have your space professionally measured so that you can get an accurate price quote on the amount of carpet you’ll need to cover your space.

Step 4: Choose your carpet

Large families, pets, young children or single member households will all wear on carpets in different ways. As such, there are different carpets that will work better for certain households.

After you’ve learned about all the different carpet types available to you, narrowed down the best range of options for your lifestyle, and gotten your measurements & quotes, it’s time to select a carpet!

Step 5: Leave room for padding in your budget

Carpet padding provides critical support to ensure that your flooring remains intact and functions fully with minimal wear and tear. You do not want a padding that is too thick or thin, and the most expensive padding may not always be the best option for your specific situation. Padding can be manufactured with a variety of different materials such as rubber or foam. Our team will advise you to ensure that you select the padding that is perfect for the carpet that you’re going to be installing in your space. Padding may be an additional charge on top of the carpet you’re selecting, so we’ll work with you and discuss how different options will ultimately impact your budget.

From just an idea in your head to the reality of your new carpet installation, our team is here to guide you through each part of the carpet buying process. When you look to transform any space in your home with new flooring, it can be a considerable investment.  Our goal is to help you make the best decisions given your decorating ideas and budget. We look forward to educating you along every step of the way.
