WITH a wealth of experience in sales and installation, Leeton Floors has got all your needs covered when it comes putting a new floor under your feet.
As the name conveys, Leeton Floors retails and installs floor coverings for all areas of the home, as well as for smaller commercial work.
That can range from carpet in a wide variety of styles and fibres such as wool, solution dyed nylon and eco green, to floating timber flooring (hard woods, bamboo, oak and laminates), or vinyl in sheets, planks or tiles.
Jaxon and Kirsten Durham have operated the business for three years, but took over a fourth-generation business that began about 1950.
“The previous owners are very close friends of ours and were looking to pass the business on,” Jaxon said.
“They spent a lot of time training and mentoring us for the responsibility of taking on their family business. We feel quite privileged to be given this opportunity.
“We want to make sure we maintain the same high standards and continue to grow the business in the best way possible.”
The business also has a homebrew shop that stocks a range of supplies, including brewing equipment, essences, sugars, beer kits, bottles and accessories.
Leeton Floors has four experienced floor layers and one apprentice, as well showroom staff with knowledge of different flooring products and ranges.
Although based in Leeton the business services the surrounding area, including Griffith, Narrandera, Hay, Lake Cargelligo, West Wyalong, Coolamon, Coleambally, Darlington Point and everywhere in between.
“We’ve had a lot of interest from Griffith residents over the last year,” Jaxon said.
“We have been doing a bit of work there and we want people know that we are available to service their needs.”
This advertising feature is supported by the following business:
Some customers put in extensive time and research before contacting Leeton Floors, while others come into the store seeking advice.
“Some people have been online exploring the vast variety of flooring, or looking through styling magazines,” Kirsten said. “They come in with names and pictures of products and designs they like.
“Others come in without any idea and we get the opportunity to workout what is best suited to them and their families.”
Jaxon said people don’t tend to change their flooring unless they need to.
“When they do, they tend to choose what is happening in the design world,” he said.
“A lot of the on-trend products are more practical now and more budget friendly. So people can get the best of both worlds and have on-trend flooring, while being practical at the same time and staying within a budget.”
With their hard-wearing nature and ease of cleaning, vinyl planks are becoming more popular as a flooring option. They are also available in an amazing range of colours, textures and sizes.
“People are choosing lighter more natural colours that are reflective of the Australian environment and raw materials, when it comes to vinyls and woods,” Kirsten said.
“With carpets, people are tending to look towards the greener, eco friendly, low allergen products. Greys and darker colours being most popular.”
Jaxon said designs with herringbone patterns are on-trend, but haven’t swept the MIA to any great effect.
“We are yet to see very much of it around here,” he said. “We have done some really nice parquetry with the vinyl planks recently, which came up really well.”
