About Us

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.

We are also a member of the National Floorcovering Alliance, an elite group of flooring dealers selected by, and representing some of, the largest and finest in North America. Membership in the NFA allows us to provide our customers with access to fantastic products at prices that can’t be beat by other Canadian retailers.

Through all the changes Floortrends has remained a family owned business.  Our dedicated staff have built our reputation by providing customers with quality flooring, fair prices, and excellent service for over 50 years.  But don’t let our age fool you – as our name suggests, we’re on top of the latest trends in flooring products, installation, and design, offering a vast selection to match your style and budget.

We understand that flooring is a big investment and our expert staff are more than happy to help guide you through any residential or commercial flooring project you might have.  We install everything we sell so you can be assured that the flooring you purchase will look as beautiful in your home as it did in our showroom.  Stop by any of our five locations and we will be happy to discuss your project with you and make recommendations tailored to your needs.

Can’t make it into a store?  Take advantage of our “Shop at Home” program and have us bring the flooring samples right to your home!  Shopping from home is the best way to see what the products you select will look like in your own home – making sure it matches your furniture, paint, and décor.
