New to this forum, Researching where to buy flooring

Hello to all!

My husband and I have decided its time to overhaul our old carpet and dated tile throughout the living room, den, and kitchen. We are feeling a bit overwhelmed by the many vendors we have to choose from. Obviously this is a huge investment and we want to choose wisely. We are in Southern California and wondering if anyone can recommend a specific store location or chain.

Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your time!

Big box or mom and pop?

You can feed the corporate world, or help small business owners. Ya, the tile at HD might be 50 cents cheaper, but the service you will receive from a "Mom and Pop" kind of store will make up for it. Plus the selection is typically better. If price really is a big concern mention that to them and they can show you their less pricey stuff...I have gotten great deals at independant shops..you just have to ask.

Thanks so much for the feedback Kevin. I always love to support mom and pop, however, one vendor that has caught my eye is *********. They come to your home and have an excellent selection of products. But I don't know anyone who has used them before. Does anyone in the Los Angeles area have any thoughts on this vendor?
