Prepare For Your Retailer
There's lots to think about when planning your new floor. We want you to get the most you can out of a visit to a retailer, so before you go, spend a little time thinking about the following hints and tips.
Take some approximate measurements of your room(s)
You need to know how much flooring you will and this will help the retailer provide you with an initial estimate.
Make a rough sketch of your room shape
Include window and door positions and key items such as kitchen and bath units, fireplaces and built-in furniture.
You could even take photos of your room with your mobile phone. It sometimes much easier if you have a visual reference.
It will help you when thinking about design features such as strips and borders.
Check what's under your current flooring surface
Make a note of it e.g. wood, concrete, and if it's fairly flat.
Gather together colour references, wallpaper and paint swatches, wall tile and surface samples
This will help you when looking at the products.
It's perfectly normal for people to take a cupboard door or a piece of worktop with them.
Make a note of your favourite Karndean floors and finishing touches or print them off
If you already have a favourite its a good idea to have some references with you. That way you can compare any others you like.
We also have a handy guide on page 115 of our brochure with lots of space for notes and sketches. Request a copy of our brochure today.
