Welcome to Creative Flooring

Keeping it local

Creative Flooring was established to shake up the flooring market and offer a wider choice for all. As one of the only flooring companies in New Zealand to offer locally produced, pre-finished wood and cork flooring in a range of colours - we are proud of our leadership position.

A solid heritage

Creative Flooring is 100% New Zealand owned and operated. Its founders have extensive industry experience and provide a full suite of services in the residential and commercial space, from planning, design and expert installation.

Rapid business growth has not replaced our personal touch. We understand that flooring is a significant financial and emotional investment – we believe our clients deserve to love the end result.

We’re doing things differently

Co-founder, Garth, is a pioneer in the NZ pre-finished wooden flooring market. Arguably the first to produce oiled wood floors directly in-house (as opposed to off-shore) means we can offer our clients superior quality and after-care service.

As the company name suggests, Creative Flooring produces ranges of colours, grades and finishes to match your design flair.

What else gives Creative Flooring a point of difference? Better choice! We are the only nationwide supplier of Wood, Laminate, Ceramin, Natural Cork and Coloured Cork flooring.

Pick an award winner!

We were delighted to recently win the ATFA Commercial Pre-finished Floor of the Year Award. While industry awards are exciting, the highest praise we can receive is a happy client. So come and see for yourself, the Auckland showroom is a vibrant place to bring our ranges to life. We look forward to showing you examples of successful projects and introducing you to our team.


Green as can be

Today’s consumer is conscious of the environment and Creative Flooring has a responsibility to help. Wherever possible, our timber is sourced from ethically maintained forests who have strong replanting philosophies.

The majority of our timber flooring is engineered - where only the top layer is slow growing hardwood, compared to full solid timber flooring. Likewise, our cork is a natural, renewable and recyclable product. Feel free to ask us about our practices and how we’re doing our bit to help out.

Pleased to meet you

Come and visit us at our recently refurbished showroom! To offer a great service, it takes a strong team. At Creative Flooring HQ, you’ll meet Garth, Greg, Susie and Jackie. But we’re also supported by a talented factory and installation team, along with a network of carefully picked distributors.
