Area Floors is a service-oriented floor-covering boutique where we are more interested in matching customers with the best long-term flooring solution that with gaining a short-term sale. Everything we do is guided by a commitment to doing it right the first time while offering a competitive price. As a result, some things are a little different at Area Floors.
Other stores place a lot of work and responsibility on the customer in terms of researching which flooring option is right for them – material, finish, installation method, price and interior design coordination. If you are lucky enough to flag down a staff-person, they are often not equipped to answer these questions. We are already experts on these things, and are here to listen to your needs, ask questions, and guide you through the selection process. Come in and let us do the work for you – that’s why we’re here.
We are a woman-owned and nearly and all-women operated business. This gives us a bit of an advantage over the typical floor-covering store. We are mothers, grandmothers, wives, and proud home-keepers who have a keen understanding of how families put serious wear and tear on floors. We are full of tips on how best to maintain and clean your floors – from specific cleaning products to DIY mixtures. Our senior design consultants bring years of interior design experience to the table when giving our free design consultations. They also bring a compassionate intuition that comes from personal experience of how a home is an expression of those who live in it. Just like you we want it all – price and beauty. You can count on us to be thrifty fashionistas when it comes to flooring materials – we seek out today’s designs at a great price.
When you come into Area Floors, you can be sure that your shopping experience will be a pleasant one. You will be taken care of by people who love what they do and look forward to helping you find the best flooring solution. Since we don’t take commissions or employ salespeople, you’ll never be pressured into anything like at other stores. Feel free to bring the family – we have a kids area, snacks, and light refreshments to keep everyone happy, even your furry family members.
When it comes time to install, you’ll be matched with a few contractors who specialize in your specific project needs. It’s our policy not to employ on-staff installers so that we can offer our customers a more tailored installation team. Since our contractors are evaluated by us and our customers with each project, you can be sure that you’re getting the best in the business. Other stores employ on-staff installers who don’t have to earn a good reputation – they are guaranteed work from the flooring company and are often ill-equipped to handle the varying demands of a wide range of projects. Because we recommend more than one independent contractor, you can bid your project to be sure you’re getting a competitive rate with no mark-up from us. Having a recommended independent installer saves you money and ensures the installation experience is much more likely to run smoothly and without hassle.
Come in to Area Floors today to take a look around and tell us about your project – we can’t wait to meet you.
