Life as the wife of a "Flooring Guy"...
As the wife of a “flooring guy” I have developed a deep appreciation for anything flooring over the years. It’s impossible to walk into a restaurant, a mall, or even a friend’s house without some recognition of what is covering the floors. Every home we have lived in over the past 13 years has had a flooring makeover. We recognized early on that we could add quick value as well as beauty with this relatively inexpensive update.
When the opportunity arose in the fantastic Portland market to get into business for ourselves we were excited about the prospects. After 15 years of experience in every aspect of the flooring business, my husband finally took the leap into self-employment. We wanted Stone+Wood Outlet to be the type of place that we would shop. We offer a great selection with a huge in-stock selection (which we would have loved when we were working on our flooring projects!) with something for everyone’s taste. When you enter our warehouse, you’ll see hardwood, stone, ceramic, laminate, and even decking. You’ll be greeted by our knowledgeable and personable staff- and very likely you’ll have the unique pleasure of working with my husband! (Tell Steve that Lisa sent you!)
We have always appreciated the beauty and diversity of tile. We are very excited about our recent acquisition of beautiful, high end tile- that we will be offering to the public at amazing prices. If you are in the market for tile…or will be in the near future- you owe it to yourself to check out this special offering. Tile looks great in the traditional rooms-bathrooms and kitchens, but it also creates a sophisticated living and family room. We found one of our favorite uses of tile has been in the homes where we had a combination of kitchen/breakfast nook/family room. We used a large 18x18 tile in a dark, natural state tile which had a lovely appearance, hid dirt well, and was easy to care for. We hope that you give Stone+Wood Outlet a chance. Stop by and say hello to Steve- remember, tell him Lisa sent you.!
