The Flooring Room Tauranga


Owner of The Flooring Room

Being a third generation flooring guy I was born with “fluff in my veins”. I ran the national product program for NZ’s biggest flooring chain but when they sold to an Australian private equity I decided it was time to fulfil my dream of creating The Flooring Room. I put my name to every job and am extremely proud of what we can do for you.
