There’s something very different about new flooring compared to all other home remodeling projects…flooring goes underneath everything in a home! That means in order to replace your flooring, everything has to be moved. This can seem like quite a challenging task, but at Plum we make getting new flooring radically simple, including moving your furniture.
The first step in preparing your home for new flooring from Plum is to clear-out small items such as knickknacks, clothes, and other personal items. This is actually a great opportunity to declutter your living spaces and can be quite rewarding in itself. Research shows that customers are 72% happier with their living spaces when they are decluttered compared to when they are not. A simple way to declutter a living space is to gather all the various items into a corner (or box) and decide what you really want to keep versus what you hardly (if ever) use. This step can be tough for most people, but it shouldn’t be. If you toss something that you later want, chances are it can be rebought on Amazon (or another e-tailer) at a discount.
Second, all of your heavy items like coffee tables, entertainment centers, and bedroom sets are best left to our professionals. A lot of times customers can be overwhelmed by
having to breakdown their furniture sets, believing that flooring installers couldn’t possibly be able to handle all that work! At Plum our flooring technicians are also expert furniture movers and are very accustomed and familiar with breaking down even the toughest furniture sets safely and with care.

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.
