Before You Visit a McSwain Carpets & Floors Showroom

  • Make a note of what are the adjoining rooms and what flooring is currently in those areas
  • If possible, make a note of what is under your existing flooring
  • Decide what you want done with existing baseboard and moldings
  • Bring photos of the room(s) you want to cover with new flooring
  • Bring swatches, fabrics and colors with you. Let our design experts help you coordinate to find the perfect match in flooring to compliment your home.


Selecting the Right Floor for your Needs
  • How much traffic does this room get each day?
  • What is the room used for?
  • How many children and pets do you have?
  • Do you have a certain color in mind?
  • What are your personal expectations for the flooring? How long do you want it to last?
