By the Room: A Better Way to Buy Flooring

May 24, 2021 3 min read

Porcelain Carpet

Do you know the square footage of your living room? What about your hallway? Probably not.  Even if you have a general idea of the square footage of your space, do you feel confident enough to make a large home purchase based off of your guess? You’d likely need to search for your tape measurer and then try to calculate the square footage or arrange for a stranger from a flooring company to measure for you.

Honestly, that all sounds….not fun. At Plum, we’ve come up with a better way to buy flooring.  You might not know the square footage of all three of your bedrooms, but you know that you need carpeting for three bedrooms, and, actually, that’s all you need to know when you’re ordering flooring from Plum. Because we price our carpeting and LVP by the room.

Yes, you read that right. With Plum, you buy by the room instead of by the square foot.

What is By the Room?

By the room is an easier, more convenient way to buy new flooring. When shopping by the room, you can skip the measuring and just tell us how many rooms need flooring. We’ll give you an all-inclusive fixed price for that type of room (bedroom, living space, bathroom, etc). This includes the cost of materials, furniture moving, old flooring removal, installation and a lifetime warranty. We take care of every aspect of the installation, from determining the amount of flooring you need to ensuring it’s installed seamlessly. 

No Measuring, No Math, No Mistakes

Buying new flooring used to be an intimidating and time-consuming process. Finding flooring for your home could involve several days of going in and out of stores, hunting for the right style, color, and features among hundreds of options. Add taking measurements onto that, and then it really becomes overwhelming.

At Plum, we just don’t think it needs to be that hard. 

We simplified the process by offering a curated selection of carpeting and LVP that are high-quality, stain resistant, and guaranteed for life. You can even do the entire process online--no traffic jams or limited store hours involved. Just pick your color, pick your rooms, and pick your installation date. No measuring involved. Once your order is complete, you’ll send a photo of your room so that we can prepare your order, but it won’t affect your quoted price (even if you happen to have an extra large living space).  

Once your installation date rolls around, our professional installers will move your furniture, remove the old flooring, and do all the heavy lifting for you, while you get to choose a more relaxing workout for the day, such as yoga (or just a hour-long savasana).

How to Shop By the Room in 3 Steps

Buying flooring By the Room not only makes sense, it’s so easy your twelve-year-old could do it (although we wouldn’t actually recommend that). You can do it, we believe in you.  

Here’s how to shop by the room in three simple steps.

  1. Pick your color. We’ve curated over 30 nature-inspired neutrals to go with any décor, but if you’re not quite sure which one to go with, order your free samples to see it in your space and feel the softness for yourself.
  2. Pick your rooms. You can choose the bathroom, bedroom and closet, dining room, hallway, living space, master bedroom and closet, and staircase.
  3. You’ll then be prompted to place your order and schedule your installation. After that, we’ll ask you to take a clear photo of the rooms you’re reflooring so we can determine how much flooring you need. Don’t worry, though; the price of your installation won’t change based on your photos. Our by the room pricing is all-inclusive and never has hidden fees or charges. 

It’s really that simple. After all, you don’t live in square feet. You live in rooms. And buying new flooring should be easy, because, honestly, you’ve got enough on your plate.

When selecting new carpet, the first big step is to determine what color will look best in your home. It’s important to mention that flooring in a home should always be nature-inspired neutral color in order to provide design flexibility. Take all the accent colors (greens, reds, blues, etc.) out of consideration. It might seem like a fun idea to decorate with accent colors, but never for your new flooring.
