It’s sometimes hard to visualize how a new flooring option will look in your home. You could hold up a picture, bring home a sample, and squint your eyes to try to envision what it will look like as a finished end product, but at the end of the day, selecting the perfect floor material can feel like a gamble.
“It’s a big commitment,” says Kim McKenzie, owner of Modern Home Carpet One in Bracebridge.
That’s why Kim and her team have taken steps to take the worry out of the floor buying experience, using every tool available to streamline each step, from inspiration to installation.
During the pandemic, when in-store shopping wasn’t an option, their website added an ordering service for samples, allowing buyers to select samples for home delivery.
Now you can also find an intuitive tool that allows you to try out your flooring, before ever ordering a sample.
“With our Room Visualizer tool, you can upload your room or use a sample room to see how each flooring option will look in your space,” says Kim. “Our goal is to keep you from getting overwhelmed by the many options and get you to the right floor faster.”
Couples spend an average of 90 days to go from exploring flooring options to enjoying the final product. That timeline can be dramatically reduced using these online tools and meeting in person with a sales associate in the Bracebridge showroom.
“If you know the look you’re going for and your budget, they can help you make sure you’ve chosen the right product for your family and lifestyle,” says Kim.
While the company has been well known for carpet over their seven decades in business in Muskoka, they also have a large selection of hard surface products and window coverings.
“Here, you’ll also find hardwood, luxury vinyl, laminate, and tile,” says Kim. “We know this is an important decision. Bring your paint chips, countertop sample… even your favourite cushions that inspire you and let us help you find the right flooring to update your space.”
