If you follow the blog or know me, you might know we recently got on the ladder and bought a ‘fixer upper’ property.
We’ve embarked on a complete rehaul and tried to save money on every aspect of DIY in the process.
Who knew kitchens, bathrooms and furniture were soo expensive??
One thing I discovered along the way is how much the little details count.
What colour flooring to get, what curtain fabric to use, which tiles will go best in the kitchen or bathroom.
So naturally, I went on a free sample frenzy and made a list of all the places to find free interior design samples.
It didn’t help my serious case of decision fatigue, but it did save us from making any expensive mistakes on the above.
Hopefully, you’ll find these as useful as we have!
Why order fabric, tile or floor samples?
Why would anyone want to spend their time sending off for a 10 x 10 cm cube?
Well, for starters it will save you a bucket load of money from choosing the wrong laminate flooring shade in 30 packs or purchasing a sofa that’s definitely not matching up to the colour it looks like on the website.
It’s also great for any arts and crafts projects!
How much do fabric, tile & floor samples cost?
That’s the beauty of it, 100% free my friends!
Until you make a purchase on their website, you won’t shell out a penny.
Even better, your free samples also sometimes come with a tea bag and a biccy AND a discount to encourage you to choose their company.
Will I get harassed if I apply for free samples?
Companies will send you follow up emails asking you how you liked your free samples and of course, ask you if you’d like to follow this up with a sale.
If you’ve left your number (I usually enter an old one so they can’t contact me) then just tell them you’re not interested and they won’t call you again.
I know lots of people feel cheeky ordering samples and feel obliged to buy something from the company but trust me, you’re under no pressure here.
So, here is my list of top samples available…
