Why are Floor Samples Important?

We believe it is important that you get to see and touch the flooring before you buy and this is why offer to send samples.

  • Generous Size
  • Dispatched within 24 hours (Mon-Fri)
  • No Obligation
  • Order Updates
  • Hassle Free

We recommend that you always get a sample before ordering the full sized product. Not only do you get to road test the supplier but you want to be sure you are choosing the right product.

We do our best to provide great images and our customers send in lovely snaps to help you choose too, but sending off for a sample means you get to feel the texture, examine the quality and colour match against the rest of your decor and colour scheme.

About the website images, these are included to represent how the product might look in a particular setting but there are so many factors that change how that same flooring might look in YOUR home. A website image can appear completely different on one device/computer screen to another. The lighting on the lifestyle photo could be artificial lighting from a studio or it could be natural lighting from an actual installation. People see colours differently. Have you ever debates whether something is blue or green? And what about the famous White and Gold Dress (or was it blue and black)?

So please, request a no obligation floor sample and get touchy feely with it. See how it looks in your own home when the morning sun is blazing through your windows and again in the evening when you have the lamps and candles lit. Match it against the walls and furniture. And if it turns out the sample(s) we sent are not suitable for whatever reason, please feel free to come back and request more samples of other floor products.

Will You Reserve Stock If I Order a Floor Sample?

No.

Requesting a sample does not guarantee the design or quantity will be available when you have made your choice and ready to order. 

You are unable to request samples of a product that has already been marked out of stock.

We never reserve stock without an order.
