Operations Manager

Introducing Nathan! Nathan is The Flooring Room’s Operations Manager which means he co-ordinates the installers and ensures our team is on time – every time. It’s a big job but he’s certainly up to the task seeing as he has over 15 years of flooring experience under his belt as well as a ‘get stuck in’ attitude. We love having Nathan on the team because not only is he passionate about flooring, he also has plenty of time to crack a joke along the way. Outside of work, he has recently put an extension on his man cave so that his ever-growing collection of power tools also have a home.

We had such a pleasant experience dealing with The Flooring Room, couldn't have asked for better service. Efficient and affordable what more could you ask for.- Caitlyn Sowry
Four words excellent, efficient, effortless, affordable. The Flooring Room would have to be one of the best companies I’ve doubt with in the last 7 years and 6 renovations- Anita Brown
Excellent service from Richard and his team at The Flooring Room Palmy. Adric was really helpful and spent a lot of time with us choosing the right flooring options, he helped us all the way through the process. Richard and his installers were very knowledgeable and spotted issues that other carpet stores did not pick up with our old existing flooring. We choose Flooring Room because of their superior knowledge and experience.-
