Choosing the ideal flooring for your home is an exciting journey, but we understand that making the final decision can be a tough choice. That's why we're here to help you every step of the way. Testing out flooring samples is a fantastic way to ease those nerves and make a confident choice. With up to 6 free flooring samples delivered right to your doorstep, you can explore different options and find the floor that perfectly fits your vision.

Up to 6 Free Flooring Samples Delivered to Your Doorstep

At the heart of our commitment to your satisfaction lies our offer of convenience. We provide you with the opportunity to receive up to 6 complimentary luxury vinyl flooring sample swatches right at your doorstep. This grants you the freedom to explore a diverse range of options, helping you discover the floor that flawlessly harmonises with your vision.

Step 1: Unveil the Look and Feel

Experiment With Lighting

Place your flooring samples near a window in the room you're looking to transform. As the natural light shifts throughout the day, observe how the samples appear. When evening comes, play around with various lighting setups, like overhead fixtures and lamps. Snap pictures in different lighting conditions to aid your decision-making process. Don't forget to move the sample around the room to see it in all corners and under different lighting.

Engage Your Senses 

Tactility plays an undeniable role in your flooring experience – run your fingers over the samples to feel their texture and emboss. Lay them on the floor and step on them with bare feet and in socks. Stand on them as you go about your morning routine. This experience isn't the same as walking on an installed floor, but it will give you a sense of the texture and feel, including the differences between luxury vinyl flooring formats (loose lay, rigid hybrid, gluedown).


Step 2: Test Durability 

Spray Water

Wondering how your flooring will handle moisture? Give it a water test. Spray or drip water on the sample twice – the first time, wipe it up right away, and the second time, let it sit.

Embrace Ordinary Incidents

Replicate real-life scenarios by testing with beverages your family enjoys, like juice, coffee, or red wine. Use your usual cleaning products to see how the sample reacts.

Drop Things

Simulate everyday incidents. Drop your keys, walk across with your favourite boots or heels, and scuff it with your sneakers. For pet owners, mimic the scratches pets might leave with an old fork or key. Even get it muddy to imitate shoe debris. This helps you gauge how well the flooring stands up to wear and tear.


Step 3: Assess Style

Compare With Your Curtains

Place each flooring sample under your curtains individually to find the best match. Experiment with different lighting conditions. If you're redoing the whole room, compare samples with the curtains you plan to hang. Take the samples along to the store to check how they coordinate with your curtain options.

Match Your Paint

Consider the flooring's compatibility with your wall paint. Even neutral colours have undertones that might influence the match. If you're repainting, test samples against the new colour.

Check Your Accessories

Examine how the samples harmonise with your furniture and accessories. Hold them up to artwork and accent pieces. This helps you spot any clashes or harmonies you might not have anticipated.

Try Before You Decide

We're committed to your satisfaction. That's why we provide up to 6 free flooring sample swatches, delivered to your door at no cost. Experiment with different tones and species to find the one that resonates with your vision.

Don't settle for buyer's remorse when it comes to a significant and lasting investment like your flooring. Your satisfaction is our priority. Keep exploring until you find the flooring that speaks to you and fits your lifestyle. Your dream floor awaits!
