Affordable Floors Abbey Carpet is excited to be nominated as the Best Floor Covering Shop in the Columbia River Gorge for 2023! This special honor is voted by the community and Affordable Floors takes great pride in this recognition by its patrons. The Best of the Gorge contest, presented by Bicoastal Media Radio, highlights the best local businesses and services within the Columbia River Gorge region as valued by the community.

A local Hood River business since 1992, Affordable Floors teamed up in 2002 with Abbey Carpet & Floors to expand their purchasing power nationwide. After 25 years of operation on 13th Street, the business moved to its current location on Osprey Drive which provided ample space to build a new luxury showroom. “Everybody who walks in is just in awe of the showroom,” says owner Larry Williams. “It’s eye-popping.” Supplying both residential and commercial flooring, Affordable Floors Abbey Carpet offers customers the best and largest selection of carpet, hardwood, laminate, vinyl and tile in a friendly, comfortable and helpful atmosphere. “Come see the latest and newest in floor covering designs,” says Larry, noting that there’s always something new coming in.

Affordable Floors Abbey Carpet knows floors from one end of the room to the other because that’s all they do! Offering the best possible prices, on-site design professionals, complimentary in-home consultation and free estimates, as well as professional installation, they have it all covered. Featured products include Infinity and PetDefense carpet with the best stain resistance and softest construction on the market today and all exclusive carpet brands are manufactured in the U.S.A. Add a 60 Day Guarantee and Lifetime Warranty along with an exclusive distributorship for Bona floor products and you have no reason to shop elsewhere.

“We’ve had a super awesome year!” Larry expresses. A hands-on owner, he still mans the showroom, takes orders, does measuring and completes installations. Jim Hart, who’s been with Larry for over 30 years, and Jim’s son, Jordan, are currently full-time installers for the company. Larry’s niece, Shelby, is the office manager and helps Larry handle the sales front!

Growing up in Hood River, Larry returned home from college to raise three sons with his wife of 38 years and is blessed with three granddaughters as well. When it comes time for Larry to retire, his hope is to pass along the business to a family member or close friend who will honor the personal owner/seller relationship that customers have come to trust and appreciate from Affordable Floors and Abbey Carpet & Floors.
