The Dream To Do Things Better

Flooring Innovations is a privately owned company started in October, 2003 by Bill Nicholson. Bill had worked within the flooring industry at Dupont as a retail store planner for 10 years. During that time, Bill helped to create the concept of the company Flooring Centers and then set out travelling the country, turning carefully selected but ordinary flooring stores into flagship Flooring Centers. During all of his travels, Bill picked up a tremendous amount of knowledge about the nuances of the flooring industry from his newly found dealer friends. With the support of all of his comrades within Dupont and around the country, Bill decided to open his own  Flooring Center within the Coachella Valley.

    We would just like to take a moment to comment on our recent experience with Flooring Innovations. You are the BEST!!! Terri was great in helping us choose the product and making arrangements for the installation. She answered all our questions and helped with the selection by pointing out the benefits of various products. Very helpful and a great personality! The installation team, Kevin and Temo, were by far the best team we’ve ever been associated with. Very efficient, considerate, hard working and absolutely great. Plus, they have great personalities. The quality of the work is unbelievable and we couldn’t be happier. These gentlemen are a true asset to your company. Please know that we will, without hesitation, recommend Flooring Innovations to anyone considering flooring!

    Sincerely, William Schinsky & Patrick Sprinkel

    I cannot explain in words as to how pleased we were at the incredible performance of your workmen. The old carpet was removed; the new carpet was installed perfectly and in a very timely fashion.

    Thank you again for a very professional installation. And thank you Bill for having such a phenomenal staff working for you. In the future, if we need any flooring work done I will not hesitate to call on you again.

    The service I have received at Flooring Innovations is the best I have had in a very long time. I am very picky with an elevated attention to detail, which in today’s world is more of a curse than a blessing.

    Whatever it is you are doing…keep it up. I will only recommend Flooring Innovations when the opportunity arises.

    I wanted to let you know how happy we are with the services Flooring Innovations performed for us during our recent remodel to get our house ready to sell.

    As you may recall, we got bids from several firms for our kitchen cabinets, counters, and bedroom carpets. While your prices were not the cheapest, your organization was so clearly more organized and professional that we decided to go with you. That turned out to be one of the smartest choices we have ever made.

    Two weeks ago I came into your showroom to look for carpet for our bedrooms. I was cheerfully greeted by Stephen, one of your flooring specialists. He listened to what I was saying and helped me pick out the carpet I wanted. It is now a week later and we have our new carpet and we love it.

    Shopping with your company was a real pleasure!

    We recently had a complete remodel of our new home and selected Flooring Innovations for all the tile flooring, kitchen and bath tile, and carpet. From the selections at the Palm Springs showroom to our sales person, Steve, to the installation crew, it was professional and timely and we couldn't be happier! The end result is spectacular.
