If you are looking to purchase new carpet for your home and are not buying the carpet directly through a contractor, then you need to educate yourself before you make your purchase.
Carpets are a huge investment and will be with you for years to come.
Therefore, it is essential that you make a wise decision in where you are purchasing your carpet and who you are trusting with the quality of your new floor.
There are a number of different places to buy from, some of them good, some of them not so good.
In this article series, we are going to discuss the best places to buy carpet so that you can transform your flooring from “old and busted” to “new hotness” in no time!
1. Family-Owned Carpet Shops
Not only are you supporting small businesses and stimulating your local economy by purchasing your new carpet from a family owned shop, but you are also likely to find the highest quality carpets at the best deals.
These retailers have a wide selection of brand named carpets and buy directly from the manufacturers making the prices much more reasonable.
In addition to this, because of their (typically) long business history and entrepreneurial nature, the staff at these shops tend to be much more knowledgeable than the staff at larger stores.
2. Shop at Home Carpet Retailers
These companies are fantastic options because they bring samples directly to your home.
This makes matching colors a breeze and will allow you to easily see what would match and what wouldn’t without ever having to step out of your front door!
