There is a perfect time for everything, especially when it comes to buying a new floor for your home.
During the year, deals on new flooring change routinely. Knowing what time of the year is best to buy floors will help you get the best bang for your buck.
The best time to buy carpet and flooring can be broken down into three factors:
- Best time for buying
- Best time for deals
- Best time for your health
To make this easier to understand, we’ll break these down for you.
The Best Time to Buy Flooring
This doesn’t focus too much on pricing, but rather how quickly you’ll get your estimate and project completed. On the price side, the quicker you’re ready to buy, the better deal you’ll get upon the date of your estimate.
The times listed below will help you get not only the best bang for your buck, but also your flooring project completed quickly:
- Late December / Early January: Most carpet and flooring stores are beginning to empty out their shelves to make room for new product. When the new season is starting up, you’ll find amazing deals on carpet and flooring products that have been stored up from the previous year. When stores are striving to get rid of product, your wallet benefits from it.
- Mid / Late May: New product is coming into most stores at this time, so clearance sales are usually running. You’ll find great pricing on old product and remnant sales at local flooring stores near you.
It’s not wrong to buy flooring out of these time frames, so don’t worry if you decide to buy in other months. Whatever gets the flooring in your home is what matters.
The Best Time for Carpet and Flooring Deals
This all depends on the carpet and flooring company you’re choosing to work with. Throughout the year, discount prices on carpet and flooring vary. Make sure to keep up with discounts flooring stores offer by signing up to their email listings.
Some people do say that early fall is a poor time to buy flooring, but once again, that varies from store to store. Just give your local carpet dealer a call and see what they are offering at that time.
The Best Time for your Health
This one is pretty obvious, especially if you’re a Michigan native. For Michiganders, the winter is a hard time for homeowners to buy carpet and flooring.
The main reason is due to the fact that you’ll have your door opening and closing repetitively. If you’re sensitive to cold weather, having gusts of cold air coming into your home may not be the best for you.
