Tips before buying.
1. Have a budget. Know what you are willing to pay. There is a lot of choice out there and a budget gives you a good place to start looking. It also means you won’t over spend.
2.If you are on a tight budget for carpet and vinyl, then a good way to lower costs is to buy a remnant (off cuts). It will significantly narrow your choice, but you can get a real barging and retails will be more willing to negotiate on the price.
3. Know how long you are expecting the carpet or other flooring to last, this will help you choose your budget and make many more decisions about the carpet.
4.Get you room measured professionally as this can save you money, especially if you’re doing more than one room or a hall stairs and landing as they can work out how best to use the waste. It also means you will not under or over buy.
5. Ask to borrow samples as the natural light in your own home will be different to that in the show room, affecting the colour.
6. Buy the best you can afford.
7. Most importantly it’s your choice: go with what you feel most comfortable with as you’re going to have to live with it. Don’t be pushed into buying.
