Carpet Stores and Flooring Dealers in Santa Clara County Offer Numerous Services
Flooring showrooms and new carpet stores in Santa Clara County cover the entire range of customer bases by carrying all popular brands and types of new flooring materials, including carpets, rugs, hardwood, tile and other types of flooring. Flooring stores do wholesale commercial business for large office buildings or warehouses, or sell designer area rugs for private residences. Some carpet stores have design centers for professional consultation, where, based upon preliminary specifications given, they may offer free estimates for your new flooring. Many floor stores offer more than sales and advice. They may staff professional carpet or hard-flooring installers.

Carpet Stores and Flooring Showrooms in Santa Clara County Offer Many Parts and Materials
Local flooring showrooms and new carpet stores offer several options. Many sell both hard flooring and new carpets. For the most part, the new carpeting selection includes wool carpets, fine wool, patterned designs, and area rugs. Different types of carpets such as berber carpet, shag carpet, commercial carpet, discount carpet, remnant carpet and wholesale carpet. But some specialty carpet stores sell custom area rugs and rare specialties like custom Belgian rugs and Tibetan rugs. Most of the selection is machine woven, but many carpet vendors sell actual hand-woven rugs.

If you're not quite sure about the carpet you've chosen, many showrooms offer samples you can take home, along with remnants and rolls. They carry a large selection of other new flooring products of residential or commercial strength. These products vary in installation requirements, such as floating floors or other glue down floors for easier installation, or products that are fastened by nails or staples. Either installation type is usually available in every material.

Some of the carpet alternatives offered are green or LEED compliant materials, such as cork and cork tile, VCT (vinyl composition tile), linoleum, laminate or vinyl flooring. Flooring stores may also carry granite tile, ceramic tile, reeds, sisal, paper, engineered materials, stone, porcelain tile or marble. A variety of woods are harvested for flooring purposes, such as oak, pine, merbau, ash, maple, red oak, hickory, pecan, white oak, and fumed oak. Other popular hard flooring choices include Brazilian cherry, bamboo, beveled natural, or hand distressed beech, exotic woods, reclaimed hardwood, and pre-finished hardwood. Flooring dealers sell a lot of the finishing moulding and millwork components as well, including accent borders, bamboo moulding, inlays, inserts, and medallions.

How to Select the Best Carpet Stores & Flooring Dealers in the Santa Clara County Area 

Step 1: Describe the New Carpets or New Flooring Desired
Don't consult carpet and flooring dealers without a plan. Develop some general design ideas to bring to the interview and measure the area that will receive the new floor covering. When you report these details to each floor covering specialist, they will all be able to assess things accurately. If you choose to work with them, they'll be better equipped to point you in the right direction.

Step 2: Ask Questions & Take Notes of the Carpet Stores and Flooring Showrooms
A new flooring purchase can be a large investment that lasts for the remainder of the years spent in your home. The new flooring product you choose can be just as important as the details of the purchase. So assess each flooring store to find one that can best accommodate you and your new floor or new carpets for the years to come. Use the questions below to gauge this.

• How long have the carpet dealers or flooring showrooms been selling new carpets and flooring in Santa Clara County?

• Are the carpet stores in Santa Clara County familiar with the flooring brands and/or materials you have in mind?

•  Do the carpet showrooms & flooring centers have a full line of carpets, hardwood flooring, rugs, tile and stone flooring?

• Can the carpet store staff help with design and the identification of the most suitable new flooring materials for your home?

• How do the carpet stores determine pricing of new carpets, area rugs or new flooring?

• Do the carpet dealers have any carpet swatches, carpet remnants, or carpet samples you can take home to compare?

• Do the carpet centers offer a warranty on your new flooring? If so, what is covered?

Step 3: Compare the Interviews to Find the Best Carpet Store and New Flooring Dealer
After you've gone through these questions (as well as any additional inquiries of your own), evaluate the results. Santa Clara County flooring stores that most closely match your priorities and regularly carry the new flooring products you're considering are the best bet.

Step 4: Final Research of the Carpet Stores and Flooring Showrooms
When you've finished your research and determined which carpet stores and flooring showrooms can best accommodate you, there is one final task to complete. Find out what you can about each flooring store's sales history and local reputation, and make sure that they have a current business license to sell new carpets, rugs and new flooring.

Step 5: Go Shopping at the Flooring Stores & Carpet Stores
It's time to hit the flooring showrooms. Bring measurements of your floor to price the new flooring materials accurately, and you may also want to carry a couple of examples of the existing decorative theme in your home for color matching or coordination. When you make the actual purchase, make sure all warranty or guarantee information is carefully explained and detailed in a written contract.



Tips for Buying New Carpets & Flooring 

Get the Quote for New Carpets or New Flooring in Writing.
To be prepared for any eventuality, you must ensure that maintenance and warranty guarantees are put in writing by carpet stores and flooring dealers. This is the only way to be sure the terms will be honored.

Prepare for a Consultation with the Carpet Stores or Flooring Dealers.
If you plan to take advantage of the expertise available in the carpet stores or flooring centers, don't arrive empty-handed. You should have exact measurements of the area needing new carpets, rugs or floor coverings, as well as some color and style ideas. Bring all swatches or examples of the new flooring colors and materials with which you'd like to coordinate.

Know Your Rights As a Buyer of New Carpets or New Flooring.
