Flooring Center business.
In 1999, flooring replacements ranked eighth as the most popular home improvement renovation carried out by homeowners in the United States, generating an estimated ten billion dollars in sales. A tremendous opportunity exists to capitalize on this enormous market by opening a retail flooring center that stocks, sells, and installs a wide range of flooring products, including carpets, area rugs, ceramic tiles, hardwoods, laminates, cork, and vinyl. Flooring installations can be contracted to qualified installers on a subcontract basis, and as a method to bolster sales you can hire flooring sales consultants to work on a commission basis. Do not rely strictly on walk-in store traffic; display your flooring products and services at home improvement trade shows and by setting appointments with new home contractors and architects to present the flooring products and installation services you provide. Be sure to build alliances with property management firms of both residential and commercial buildings. On average, flooring is replaced every 10 to 15 years and property managers and interior decorators can be an excellent work and referral source.
