Why visit a carpet store when I can shop online

The internet is a vast shopping mall open 24/7 with every product you could imagine for sale.

You can easily compare prices, search for coupon codes and have your purchases delivered right to your front door without leaving your home. However, no matter how good the price or convenience, some products aren’t worth buying online. One of these items is flooring. Yes, that means giving up shopping in your pj's. However, isn't it worth it to be more confident you’re getting the end result that you want in your home? A more prominent ticket item like flooring isn’t worth the risk of buying without seeing it in person.

Colors in the photo, no matter how high the image quality, do not color match the product.

Shopping online, there is no way to tell precisely what the flooring color will look like in person or how well its color will match your room. Not to mention that you can’t judge the quality of the flooring without handling the goods in person. Shopping online, you definitely can’t test different carpets for comfort. Carpet doesn’t just need to look good - it needs to feel good when you walk, sit or lie down on it. The only way to know for sure is to visit the store and feel it in person. Walking around and browsing through a store is a much more relaxed process than conducting a focused online search. It also gives you a chance to discover other products that might interest you – possibly even at lower prices.

So, you think that when you open the package and decide you don’t love what you selected, you can return it.

That’s true, but shipping it back can be both expensive and inconvenient, especially for larger items like flooring. For instance, to return luxury vinyl tile flooring purchased online, you’ll have to go through the hassle of packing it and sending it back within a certain amount of time after purchase. You might even have to pay the cost of shipping it back yourself. With something like luxury vinyl tile flooring, you can’t return your purchase once it is installed.

When you shop in a brick-and-mortar store, you’ll deal with a real, live salesperson.

They do this for a living! To get the result you are looking for, take advantage of their expert knowledge.

You can get still benefit from shopping online without actually clicking on the buy it now button.

You can surf the internet to check prices, compare products, read online reviews, and search for sales or discount coupons. Doing this can help find the best store to shop in. When you finally head to the store to make your purchase, you’ll know exactly what you want and what you should expect to pay for it.
