Learn About Our Flooring Samples
Dec 21, 2020
Deciding you’re ready to purchase new floors for your home is always an exciting step. But—let’s be honest—it can be a stressful process. There are simply so many options to choose from.
Thankfully, Flooring America has your back with it’s flooring sample kits that allow you to test-drive multiple samples at home before you make the big commitment.
So whether you know for sure that you’re getting a new carpet, or if you’re still deciding between tile, hardwood floor, or luxury vinyl for your kitchen, you can mix and match flooring samples, try them out, and find the perfect fit for your home.
Light the Way
A key factor in choosing the right new floor for your room can be how different kinds of light will play on the new material. So it’s a good idea to take your various flooring samples, and test how both natural and artificial light interacts with them. You can place your flooring sample by a window to see how sunlight throughout the day will look as the hours change, and you can also see how different lights “play” on your samples.
Eye for Design
One of the most fun (and productive) things to do with your flooring sample is to see how you like the look within your existing interior design scheme. You can hold up your flooring sample squares to your current paint color or your curtains, or place them on the floor next to your furniture. This is a great way to envision how your new floors will fit in with your overall design scheme, and super helpful in guiding you toward the right pick. Not to mention, it allows you the freedom to try samples in varying colors and textures.
Make a Mess
Usually, making a mess is not the best idea, but when it comes to your flooring samples, have at it! Especially if you’re on the lookout for floors that are durable, aka spill-proof or pet-proof, it can be important to see how your samples interact with moisture, and wear and tear. So go ahead, spill some coffee on your sample, or scuff up the sample with your shoes. Treat your flooring sample the way you expect to treat your actual floors—and you’ll find the right fit.
