Some other ideas before you start:
||When searching for the right flooring, come to Mans first for the best selections, styles, and samples. Our experienced staff helps narrow down all the choices and helps with selections based on what you have in mind for design, quality, and budget. We help make sense of “kicking in” carpet or using a “power stretcher” for a tighter fit.
If new flooring isn’t in the budget, we can also help with refinishing hardwood floors. You can count on Mans to stand behind every service and follow up on any concerns. We provide FREE in-home estimates and financing is available.

Sketch Your Room(s)
- Sketch the width and length dimensions for the room(s) and add the measurements. (It may be help in irregular shaped rooms to break the room sketch down into smaller rectangular areas.)
- Be sure to include doorways, windows, closets, stairs, fireplaces, fixed cabinets, irregular features, heat sources, and lighting (placement & type).
- If replacing existing flooring, look at your floors and note on your plan any noticeable traffic patterns.
Ideas & Reminder List
- Along with your room sketch, list your ideas for the room.
- Also, list anything that is important to remember, such as a reminder to take fabrics from the room or a pillow from a couch when going shopping for flooring.
- Incude your favorite colors, proposed room palette (wallpaper, paint, etc.) fabric style and color, new furniture, special pieces, and window treatments.
