The founder of The Flooring Room, Steve Ferris is third generation in the flooring industry and has been involved with flooring in Tauranga (and internationally) all of his life. This vast experience has allowed Steve to hand pick the suppliers, products, installers and team to create something special – A flooring store run by passionate locals who care.
The team at The Flooring Room have seen the difference between big corporates and the love and care a local can give and realised that the suppliers saw this too. They know that price matters so set up a massive carpet warehouse (the biggest in the Bay) allowing them to buy all flooring types in bulk giving phenomenal deals with all the major brands.
The Flooring Room is a member of The Flooring Foundation – a group of like-minded independent retailers that are supported by Australiaslia’s largest carpet manufacturers Godfrey Hirst and Feltex.
A big part of the vision that Steve and the team have created they refer to as “local love” – to give the customer what they want. If this means they want a consultant to come to them with all the samples, no problem. If they want it after hours, no problem. Free colour consultation? (valued at $120) – you guessed it, no problem.
