Traditional Carpet Experience vs. MyFlooring.com

The traditional way of purchasing carpet is stressful, time consuming and overwhelming.  It goes something like this:

  • Spend a few hours researching online
    Most customers start with online research to get a sense of pricing and styles, but unfortunately, an accurate price that includes product, installation, and removal of your old floor will be difficult to come by.
  • Spend your precious weekend in the showroom
    To select your product, you’ll head to the showroom, which will have 100 different shades of beige and various features at various price points. It’s a bit overwhelming. Hopefully the person helping you will know what they’re doing and won’t be too salesy. 
  • Schedule an In-Home Measure into your packed calendar
    The showroom visit gives you a ballpark idea of the cost, but not actual quote. You’ll need to squeeze someone into your busy schedule to come out to your home and measure the room(s) you want carpeted. 
  • Wait for your quote or start all over again if you want to shop around.
    Once you have your quote, you can purchase your project. Make sure there are no hidden fees, like those for removal of old flooring or furniture moving. If you want to shop around, each potential retailer will require another showroom visit, and will have to do their own measure and quote.
  • Schedule your installation
    Once you're finally able to purchase your carpet, you’ll still need to schedule your installation, which hopefully can happen on a day that works well for you and isn’t a month away. 

After several weeks and countless hours researching, visiting showrooms, waiting and preparing, you're finally able to enjoy your new carpet!

Or, you could do it all online from the comfort of your own living room in a matter of minutes.    

In one sitting you can browse through a curated selection of top carpet colors and styles, all with every feature homeowners want, like stain-resistance and lifetime warranty.  Choose your carpet and order your samples, measure your room(s) yourself (it’s not difficult) and schedule your install on a date that fits your schedule! Easy. Convenient. DONE!
