Continue reading to make sure you have everything you need to start planning the floors of your dreams.

Style And Design

First things first, you need to find flooring inspiration, figure out your style, and pick a design. There are plenty of places to find inspiration, like HGTV, Pinterest, Architectural Digest…the list goes on! It is important to have a clear vision of what you want your room to look like when planning a flooring project. Our experts at Floor Coverings International Bloomington encourage you to explore a variety of floors, such as carpet, hardwood, or tile, then come to your consultation with a specific vision. This will allow our flooring experts to efficiently help you find the perfect floors. We are currently offering phone and virtual consultations to provide you with all the resources necessary to plan for your future flooring project.


Deciding on a budget is an important part of planning a flooring project. Here are a few aspects that will affect pricing and budget:

  • The size of the project: Will this project cover multiple rooms? Just one? Once you have established the scope of the project, it will be easier to determine a budget.
  • The flooring type: picking a flooring option will help with managing your budget expectations. For example, a hardwood floor installation will likely be more expensive than carpet.
  • Sticking to the plan: we understand that things happen and sometimes you have to change the plan. However, making a plan and sticking to it will help you avoid any extra costs down the line.

Planning a Consultation

Right now, having someone come into your home, or visiting a showroom, might not be not ideal. You can still get the information you need and maintain social distancing by setting up a phone or virtual consultation. Either chat via phone and send pictures of your space, or do a video consultation and share your room in real-time! We are more than happy to accommodate your needs to ensure your comfort.
