Recommended by La-Z-Boy In-Home Designers
Is the wall-to-wall carpet in your family room wearing? Is your hardwood floor dated or scuffed? Installing new floors is a big project, but sometimes the most challenging part is knowing where to begin.
You may be wondering where are the best places to shop for new floors in the Ottawa area, and what else do I need to know about flooring?
When helping their clients redesign entire rooms, La-Z-Boy design experts often get asked for recommendations on where to find the best flooring.
Interior Designer Dea Attar says It depends on each client’s individual needs. What would work best in their space and what kind of flooring would they prefer? Do they want engineered hardwood, ceramic tile, wall-to-wall carpeting, or vinyl flooring? Are they on a budget or is the cost of the flooring less of a concern?
We’ve broken down this blog article into the following six sections.
If you are unsure of which type of flooring you want. You can jump to section number 4 where we’ve listed our designer favourites for stores with all types of flooring.

5. Flooring on a Budget
These affordable options are for those who are okay with standard or straightforward flooring. You have to calculate quantities yourself, and there are no interior designers to help. These options are for the DIYers who can install the flooring themselves or for those who will hire a contractor to install it.
6. Flooring Tips from our Designers
- One of the most important steps when adding new flooring is the installation process. Hire a professional installer. Ask them to provide referrals and show you examples of their work. This information will provide peace of mind and will likely avoid any costly mistakes and issues down the road.
- If you are hiring a contractor to install your flooring, purchase from the company they recommend. Contractors will often have trade discounts and can pass the savings on to you.
- Make sure to consider who will be walking on the new floors? Do you have children and or pets? If so It will be imperative that you install durable flooring.
