Many people who are considering a new flooring installation are excited at the prospect of changing their home up and getting a new look. However, this exciting time can also be a time of confusion and frustration, if you've never gone through the motions of choosing a good carpet store and installer for your new floors.

We get a lot of questions here at the Integrity Plus Flooring store throughout the week, but we noticed that first-time flooring buyers are often so bewildered by the ins and outs of arranging their installation, that they tend to ask the wrong questions.

So, we thought it might be nice to offer this quick list of three questions you should always ask a prospective flooring installer, before you leave the flooring store.

1. Which Flooring is the Most Compatible With My Lifestyle?

There is a lot more to choosing the right flooring, than simply picking the floor you think will look best. You also have to consider how your new floors will hold up to the challenges of your unique lifestyle.

If you have rambunctious children or pets, you might want to steer away from bright white carpeting, and go for something a little more durable, like hardwood flooring, tile, or luxury vinyl tile.

Choosing the right flooring for your lifestyle will go a long way toward protecting your flooring investment, by ensuring a long service life and a manageable level of required maintenance. Be sure to make use of your stores expertise, to help you find the perfect balance of functionality and aesthetics for your needs.

2. Do You Provide Take-Home Samples?

When you are looking at new flooring on the Internet or in the flooring store, it looks quite a bit different than it does in your home. That's why it's important to always take some samples home to see how the color and texture interact with the lighting of your home throughout the day, and to be sure it is compatible with the other design elements in your home.

3. Are There Any Other Costs I Should Know About?

Often, there is more to a flooring installation than simply buying the flooring itself, and paying for labor. For instance, carpeting will inevitably require padding to perform properly and provide a long service life.

Be sure to ask your representative about any unseen costs that might come from going with a specific type of flooring, to make sure your budget can support it.
