Fall Week: Independent Carpet One on Live in the D

As fall sets in, it’s only natural to start dreaming of all the fun things to come: Halloween, Thanksgiving and all the holidays.

After the last year and a half we’ve had, this might be the first time in a long time that families will gather together during the holidays, and you may be feeling like your home is overdue for a fresh look.

While it’s only the first day of fall, Cathy Buchanan, co-owner of Independent Carpet One Floor and Home, said that, because of product shortages and increased appointments, this is a great time to start shopping.

New flooring can change the entire appearance inside a home, and to expedite the new look, Buchanan had a few simple tips:

1. Have a good understanding about your family’s needs. It can make the process of finding the best flooring for you and your family’s needs simpler.

2. Bring in fabric samples. This will make it easier to match your vision of what you want your home to look like with new flooring.

3. Bring in rough estimates of the measurements for the area where the flooring will be laid. This will help focus your options based on availability and budget.

4. Have clear expectations. No one knows your home like you. Knowing whether there will be kids continuously playing, dogs running around or high-foot traffic will help to find the best carpet for your family.
