One of our favorite tools is our Virtual Room Designer. This tool enables you to visualize a variety of floor designs and materials in many different types of rooms. This can be incredibly helpful when you are just beginning to decide what kinds of flooring you want to use in the room you are redesigning.
It can feel overwhelming when you first begin exploring the myriad of options there are and you might feel like there is so much to choose from it feels impossible to know where to start. But with this tool, you can easily picture what different flooring looks like from the comfort of your own home before you come in to visit our store.
The first step is to get online and head to http://www.carpetsnmore.com/designcenter/vrd.aspx to get started with our Virtual Room Designer. Below we will walk you through how to use this tool to illustrate how this feature of our website can be helpful to someone who is trying to decide on what flooring will be best for them.
Once you have pulled up the link above in your web browser the first step is to identify what room it is that you are going to be designing. For example, say you are going to be changing the flooring in your kitchen—you would first click on the kitchen option. Below several options will appear and you can choose from these options which kitchen matches yours the best.
Next the picture you choose will bring up a window where you can try different materials in the room. This is the best part of the tool because it allows you to visually picture what kinds of flooring would look best with what you already have in your room. For example, you have chosen the kitchen that best matches your kitchen. You will then choose from the ‘type’ drop down menu, picking between things such as hardwood or ceramic tile. Once you’ve made your selection you can narrow your search based on brand, product and color group if you need to.
Have fun and try all different types of flooring! You never know what combination might look best and you might even try something you hadn’t thought of before. It could surprise you as your favorite! Once you have a selection of your favorite flooring come in to one of our locations and we will help you decide what flooring works best for your needs and your home.
