Floor & Decor

Floors may be the last item to be installed, but they should be one of the first things to think about when beginning any remodeling or new construction. Floor & Decor helps its clients find the perfect flooring solution. It offers a wide selection of flooring including ceramic, porcelain, wood, laminate and stone flooring, as well the tools needed to do the installation. It is a hard-surface retailer, so it also offers such things as shower surrounds and backsplashes. “We have the lowest prices and best in stock selection,” says Lindsay Swenson, chief executive merchant. “No one can even come close to competing with us on that.”
What are some things you need to know when helping a client pick out the best flooring? We ask a ton of qualifying questions to help determine our customer’s wants/needs such as: Do you have children? Pets? Are you up for modest maintenance? Is slip factor a concern? Is durability a top priority? Is it a wet area? Is this your forever home?
How does living in New Orleans influence your inventory? We definitely customize our inventory to the New Orleans wants/needs. It’s all about the white marbles, white subway tile, white glass. Light grays are also popular especially for wood flooring and porcelain tile for kitchens.
What design trend in flooring do you wish would disappear? White on white on white on white...enough already. It’s uninspired, boring, sterile and overdone. Be brave, do something different!
