When you’re shopping for new flooring, the sample you see in the store is NOT what you see in your home.
Why it matters: Unless the color temperature of the store’s lighting is the same as your home, you’re literally seeing a different color in the store.
- Cooler lights are a brighter white and warmer lights are softer and bring in more reds, oranges and yellows — and these lights change the colors your eyes perceive.
🥊 The bottom line: Always use samples to audition new flooring in your home and look at different times of the day.

- One way to make your shopping experience easier is to find a flooring company with a mobile showroom.
