Best Place to Buy Carpet/Flooring – Orange County Register


1. Flooring and decoration

Multiple locations;

Since its founding in 2000, Floor & Décor has taken the hypermarket model and applied it to a niche department, hard surface flooring. It’s a winning game plan for the Atlanta-based company, which counts Fullerton, Fountain Valley, Santa Ana and Mission Viejo among its 166 warehouse-style outposts across the United States.

At Floor & Décor stores and on the ITS website, you’ll find a multitude of tile, stone, wood, laminate and vinyl surfaces, including eco-friendly options like bamboo.

If the options seem overwhelming, test out a few different styles at home with the online viewer. Simply upload a photo of your space and add one of the flooring options to see how it looks in your room. Create an account on the Floor & Décor website to save items related to your projects.

For more advice, you can book an appointment with a Floor & Decor designer to discuss your vision and options, either in-store or via a virtual meeting. Designers can make recommendations based on your budget and needs, as well as give you a better understanding of the installation process. Design services are free.

For the do-it-yourselfers, the company’s website offers tutorials for installing several floor coverings, as well as backsplashes. You can find the materials and tools you need at the store. If you need professional help, the store partners with Installation Made Easy.

2. Colonial rug

7331 Garden Grove Blvd., Suite B, Garden Grove; 714-892-4495;

Family owned and operated for 67 years, Colonial Carpet has been a longtime favorite of Orange County residents. “We offer good values,” says owner Rick Tessier of the secret to the company’s success. “We follow customers and we listen to them.”

Colonial Carpet staff guide customers through the process of selecting the carpet or flooring that will best suit your needs – are you looking for something pet-friendly? — through the installation. “We’re very patient because it’s a bit daunting to tear down the whole house and choose something new,” Tessier says.

Colonial Carpet representatives will come to your home, take the measurements, answer your questions, and coordinate with their team to make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible. Then, at the end, your contact person will follow up to make sure the job was done correctly. “There is no loss of continuity,” Tessier said. “You work with this same person from start to finish.”
