Do It Yourself


Do It Yourself

One of the most rewarding and fun experiences is creating something on your own. Installing your own floors can be one of those experiences. We encourage doing what you want and getting the most bang for your buck. At Denver Carpet & Flooring, we have all the eco-friendly, budget conscious, time saving, durable and tasteful surfaces to meet your needs at prices that can’t be beat.

Is DIY right for you?

If you are considering installing your floor and/or carpet yourself, you definitely want to consider your skill level, type of surface you want to install, the type of surface that will be the base you install over, the method of installation, tools and materials you will need, your budget and the time you have to dedicate. It’s a lot to take in, but we believe in you. And if you find yourself stuck some point down the line, we will be happy to help you finish the rest of your project.

DIY Beware

If this is your first foray in floor installation, you may find yourself ordering more than you need for mistakes and may cost you more than getting professional installation. Wall to wall carpet, solid hardwoods, stone, traditional tiles, and certain vinyls also require significant DIY experience and skills. For optimal results and your safety, we strongly recommend professional installation.


Many of today’s modern floors are pre-finished and don’t need to be fastened to the subfloor. Some avoid messy, sticky adhesives and only require a simple peel-and-stick installation. You can be adventurous and hone your skills with our high-quality flooring and carpeting. So now that you’re ready and set on doing your own installations, try doing it with these DIY-friendly flooring ideas (click the images to learn more):

Engineered Wood

Get the natural beauty and warmth of real wood flooring without the hassles of sanding and finishing raw wood material with engineered wood giving you a head start. Engineered hardwood is popular because it’s affordable and durable. It easily handles differences in humidity and is suited for a variety of climates.

Vinyl Plank

Vinyl plank flooring is one of the most affordable and popular alternative option for kitchens, baths, laundry and other high-traffic and high-moisture rooms. Today, most vinyl flooring have advanced technologically to comparably mimic real wood, stone, marble, porcelain and more! With proper installation, vinyl is extremely resistant to dents, scratches, water damage, and stains.


The primary difference between engineered wood and laminate is not in how they look. It’s that the top surface of laminate flooring is made of plastic laminate, making it extremely resilient, a quality that manufacturers commemorate with the longest warranties of all flooring surfaces.

Cork Planks

Cork is harvested from the bark of live oak trees. Cork flooring is a by-product of the manufacturing of cork stoppers, so it is 100 % renewable. It’s also soft underfoot, sound dampening, budget friendly, durable and just downright attractive. While it may not be the best flooring for rooms that often come in contact with water, we can help you find waterproofed cork flooring.
