Why You Shouldn’t Purchase Flooring Online
In today’s fast paced society it is very easy to rely upon the internet to buy everything from airline tickets to groceries. However, there are certain things that should not be bought over the internet, or at least not without first going to a real store. An example would be the purchase of fine art. People would not go purchase fine art without first looking at the art piece.
Most people think of their homes like fine art. With that in mind, it is immediately obvious that a flooring store in Portland must be visited live prior to purchasing any product. Comparing 40 styles of hardwood flooring with 60 types of carpeting and changing different viewing angles is impossible online. Only at a real store can different textures of hardwood be felt, or comparisons made between different thicknesses and types of carpeting.
Getting help from a trained professional at a flooring store is easier at a real store than online. Online help-desks are staffed by people that follow a generic script and have a hard time when questions fall outside the normal range. Talking to a real person where clarifications can be made in real-time is easier and preferable.
Finally, a person at a Portland floor store can help by looking at furniture or color scheme and give instant recommendations on colors/patterns of flooring that provide a good match. This is virtually impossible if only online stores are utilized to purchase your flooring options. Please, visit an off-line store before purchasing any flooring options instead of immediately rushing to low-cost online stores.
