Hardwood Floorte, Exquisite Alabaster WalnutInstalling new floors doesn’t have to be daunting. Here are four key steps to consider before the floor of your dreams makes its grand entrance.

Who’s moving the furniture? Find out in advance if it’s your responsibility or the installer’s. Either way, be sure to remove all fragile items from the room.

Make sure you know who’s removing your existing flooring. Sometimes the installer will do it. If not, you should make arrangements to have it removed.

If you’re planning to paint, wallpaper or do any other remodeling in the room, try to do it before the flooring is installed. Keep extra paint to touch up any post-installation nicks.

Measure door clearances before you have your new flooring installed. If the new floor is thicker than your existing floor, door bottoms may rub. Plan in advance to have someone shave or saw each door so it does not drag.

Benefits of Carpet

Carpet has so many things going for it. It’s soft, safe, warm and quiet. It’s stain-resistant and gives excellent value for the price—and it saves energy. Carpet is also proven to trap allergens and dander (which can easily be removed with the right vacuum used regularly). So for beautiful comfort underfoot, consider carpet.
