If you’re ordering carpet online, you’ll either need to use a tape measure to calculate the square footage of your home or schedule a professional to measure your space, right?
With Plum’s by-the-room pricing, you’ll never have to worry about calculating the square footage of those weird nooks and crannies in your living room or that strange turn in your hallway. We’ve done the math, so you don’t have to.
Since measuring your own floors can be annoying at best (and frustrating at worst), we decided to eliminate that step altogether. After all, you don’t live in square feet, you live in rooms. You might not know the square footage of your bedroom, but you know that you need carpeting for three bedrooms, and with our by-the-room pricing, that’s all the info we need.
How is this possible?
Well, what if we told you that there’s really not that much difference between room sizes within a certain category (bedroom, living space, hallway, staircase, kitchen, and bath)? Through extensive analysis of past flooring jobs across the country, that’s exactly what we discovered. Using this information, we came up with an average room size for each category, and that’s how we landed on our by-the-room prices, which also include our Solid-Core pad, installation, and a lifetime warranty.
After you’ve purchased your carpet by the rooms, we’ll ask you to send an image to us so we can prepare your flooring for you, but this image won’t change the price you were quoted. If you’ve got an extra large bedroom, well, lucky you! You don’t have to search for your tape measure, and you got a deal.
At Plum, we’re here to make things easy for you. Calculating the square footage of your home isn’t easy, and - as we discovered - it’s not necessary. With our by-the-room pricing, all you have to do is select your carpet color, your rooms, and your installation date. The rest is on us.
