What the Home Pros Know with Michele Batye

“Room to Explore” to me is an investment in our customers and sales team. It takes technology and displaying flooring to a whole new level. The evolution of this system took over a decade for our flooring co-op to analyze and test. 

One of the things we found in our research is that purchasing flooring can be overwhelming to our customers, so much to the extent some just choose to live with their ugly underperforming floors. Can you believe we used to boast that we had over 13,000 stocked items to choose from? My name is Michele Batye, owner of Flooring America. I’ve been in the flooring business for more than three decades and I’m confident this new flooring experience is going to revolutionize how customers shop for floors. 

What “Room to Explore” does is simplify your floor buying journey. Your life is hectic, busy, and full of decisions, so we want to make choosing a floor easier.  We know that you want your home to reflect your lifestyle, be functional, and aesthetically pleasing. When you walk into our new flooring showroom the first thing you will notice is open space, no longer an overwhelming number of manufacturers’ displays. Our samples will be arranged by color and texture, helping you move quickly to the look that is right for you. Don’t worry: our flooring experts will be right there to guide you to the product type that will work best for your home.   

Hey, we like to talk about flooring because it’s our passion, but we know it’s a lot of facts and figures when you don’t buy flooring every day. Our state-of-the-art Customer Experience Center allows you to scan each sample to see product and warranty information that is easy to understand and compare. Pricing and financing options — even room scenes — are all there at the touch of the screen. You can even upload photos of your own rooms either at our showroom or on your own device anywhere, anytime to see how the products look in your space before you make that big decision. Our improved website gives you information before and after the sales, so our showroom is always at your fingertips. 

We all agree less is more these days, but we want you to be reassured when downsizing our selection we had value in mind. We looked at all our product selection and compared the look, quality, durability, warranty, and price to create a collection from our most trusted manufactures. But again, don’t worry: our flooring experts and designers will be here to offer their experience throughout the entire process. We’ll provide free in-home consultation, measuring, and estimating services and once you have made your flooring choice our professional installation crew will make sure your product is installed to your satisfaction.  We’re so confident you will love it we even added our Adore Your Floor Guarantee. Anytime during your warranty period and after the flooring is installed you wish to change your “Room to Explore” floor to a fresh style or color, you have that option.     

So, what are you waiting for? Come explore what Flooring America has to offer on the Business Loop.
