What to Do With Furniture When Getting New Floors

What to Do With Furniture For New Floors

You’ve decided to finally take the plunge and treat yourself (and your home) to new floors. Maybe you’ve gone for the hardwood flooring you’ve always dreamed of in your dining room, or you’re refreshing the carpet in your much-loved family room. Perhaps you’re giving your home a total flooring makeover. It’s an exciting time, but how are you supposed to put new floors in without moving your whole family out of the house?

Furniture and belongings must be out of the way for your new floors to be installed. What you choose to do with your furniture will depend on several factors. You can start to formulate a plan by asking yourself a few questions:

How Big is Your New Flooring Project?

Flooring installation can be a considerable project depending on the scale. Do you plan to get new flooring in just one room of your home or the entire house? If you need to temporarily shift from a small kitchenette table and two chairs to a balcony, that’s one thing. However, if you need to think about all the furniture in every room of your home, that’s another.

Depending on the size of your flooring renovation, you may need to consider if you can handle moving your furniture yourself or if you need to hire professional movers to help you. If you’re flooring upgrade is only in one room, moving furniture to another room by yourself should be pretty easy. Some extra assistance might be needed if you’re upgrading to new flooring in your whole house.

How Long Will Installation Take?

You’ll also need to consider the time frame for the installation. Installing flooring can be a time-consuming process depending on the flooring material and the size of the project. A few factors to consider are:

  • How quickly can you move your heavy valuables and furniture out of your home?

  • How soon before the installation do you need to have the furniture moved?

  • What is the availability of the flooring installers?

  • Was the flooring product you chose in stock, or did it need to be ordered?

Can You Do The Heavy Lifting?

Moving your furniture yourself can be the most budget-friendly option. However, it may not always be best for you as heavy furniture can be difficult to move on your own. Consider hiring professional movers if you aren’t able to move furniture by yourself.

How Big is Your Home?

If you have several spare rooms and a huge garage, you have more options to move your furniture than if you live in a studio apartment. Spare bedrooms and basements are perfect places to store your furniture temporarily. If you don’t have the space to store your furniture in another room of your home, you’ll have to consider renting out temporary storage spaces, a portable storage unit, a storage shed, or carrying your furniture from room to room as needed. 

What’s Your Budget?

When it comes to moving (and storing) furniture, it’s generally a choice between money and muscle. Can you carry a couch by yourself or with a friend? Can you afford to pay someone else to do it? Or do you have the funds to temporarily move it to a storage unit?

Will Flooring Installers Move Your Furniture?

A flooring installation company may include moving your furniture in their quote, although it’s not a standard. If you do have this option, it can save you time (and a sore back!). However, it may also increase the total cost of your installation. Even with furniture removal included, you’ll still need to take time to remove your personal items. Before moving furniture, don’t forget to empty your closets, cabinets, and drawers.
