Meet the team

With decades of experience, the Floortrends team is trained and equipped to handle any flooring situation you might face. 

Floortrends

Through all the changes Floortrends has remained a family owned business.

Floortrends is a family owned business that began in 1967 as Kawartha Karpet & Tile, a small flooring store in downtown Peterborough, Ontario. In July 2001, the company outgrew the old warehouse and storefront at Hunter Street, moving to 1230 Lansdowne Street West before finally settling at the current location at 700 Clonsilla Avenue.

Today there are a total of 5 Floortrends stores serving South Eastern Ontario. Our locations in Cobourg, Belleville, Bowmanville, Lindsay, and Peterborough have helped people and businesses from Kingston to Bancroft and Pickering to Haliburton.
