Choosing Your New Flooring

It’s vital that when you are selecting and purchasing your new floor, you do it in the room where it’s going to be installed so that you can get a proper idea of how it will look, feel and fit with the rest of your décor, paintwork and furniture. Even the lighting in your room can make flooring look different to how it looks in our showrooms.

The best place to start is with our innovative Room Visualiser, which will give you an idea of how our various types of flooring will look in different rooms. Then once you have a few ideas about the flooring products you like, you can arrange for an in-home consultation with one of our specialists where you can see what the flooring will look like in the room, ask any questions you may have and get expert advice.

The product will always look different in the home to the store, which is why we highly recommend always viewing the products in the room it will be installed. An in-home shop and consultation will also allow you to:

  • Perfectly match your décor and colour scheme without any guesswork
  • Get the right advice from our professional salesperson after they see the rooms
  • Discuss installation methods, placement of joins, and anything else that you might need to know about installing your new floor
  • Get your room measured for installation at the same time

So Call Call Carpet Call and let us bring our wide range of products to YOU!
