This is a sponsored post written by myself.
Please excuse the radio silence for the past week.
We went on vacation and 2 of my little men picked up a crappy virus.
We’ve been laying low and having lots of cuddle time waiting it out.
Suffice it to say I’ve been going a little stir crazy.
I did get a small break and got to slip away to visit the Disneyland of flooring stores (aka Floor & Decor in Draper, UT).
This store popped up in the parking lot of Cowabunga Bay in Draper recently and I had the opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes tour before the grand opening this Wednesday, 7/30.
Holy Schmoly this place is huge!
75,000 square feet of tile, wood flooring, and other decor. They pride themselves in having the largest selection and being the lowest price leaders in the hard flooring industry with great customer service.
If you’ve ever shopped for tile, you normally go in to a show room, pick what you want from the display on the wall then place your order. At that point they will normally tell you your order will take 2-4 weeks to arrive. Not here. They keep everything that’s on display in stock. They claim to have over 1 million square feet of flooring in the store. See what you want, take it home today. Much different than my experience with trying to buy flooring.
On a side note, how gorgeous is this honed granite?
Hello future mud room of my dreams. That white veining…somebody pinch me.
They also have rows and rows of faux wood in a tile which is hugely popular. I was hard pressed to determine if a lot of it was actually wood or tile. And if you’re the DIY sort of person, they teach weekly workshops on how to lay tile yourself.
In addition to the ceramic, porcelain and natural stone tiles they also carry a gigantic selection of hardwoods from engineered to bamboo, pre-finished to unfinished.
If I could turn back the clock I wish I would have gone with this Montpelier Wide Plank Oak in my own home.
While I was there I was able to corner a tile expert and get some advice regarding the marble tile situation in my master bathroom. He gave me some valuable insight which I can’t wait to investigate. Stay tuned.
So here’s the exciting news…Wednesday night from 5-8 they are holding a networking event for Contractors and Pros. This will be a great night for pros to get to know the store. Vendors will be there, the evening will be catered and get this…they will be giving away a brand new Dodge Ram Truck to one lucky pro!
Saturday, (8/1) they will holding a Super Saturday event. Kind of like a huge block party. There will be food trucks, members of the Salt Lake Real Monarch team, a BMX bike show set up in the parking lot and more. You thought the Ram Truck thing was cool? They will be giving 200 people a chance to roll some dice to spell “FLOORS”. If someone can do it they will win $1,000,000.
Floor & Decor is located at 12101 S. State Street although they do have stores all over the country. Don’t have a store in your area? No worries, you can buy online.
Hope to see you there!
