National Flooring is locally owned and operated in Wichita Kansas by Kamela Compton. The business was started 25 years ago in 1987 by Kamela’s father Gene, a carpet installer who went into business for himself. Initially, National Flooring mainly offered carpet and installiation but, as the business grew, they have added other products.
Kamela has been with the business for 10 years. She has a business degree from Friends University. Throuhout her college career, she took a lot of architecture and design classes. Kamela worked for 5 years in the aircraft industry, but didn’t feel like she had enough creativity in her job, so she went to work at National Flooring. She works directly with builders and homeowners to choose the design for their homes.
National Flooring has one employee who does the measurements for the company. Installers are sub-contracted out, but Kamela has a select few that she works with that are very consistent and do quality installations. She wants her clients to be happy with the end results.
The material National Flooring provides is high quality. They specialize in carpet and tile design installation. Brands of carpet they sell are Shaw, Mohawk and Beaulliau (bo-you). Numerous tile brands are available, but a few name brands they sell are Emser, Dal and American Olean. They also sell wood floors, area rugs (customized to size) and Cabinet Hardware.
We were transferred to Wichita, KS and were able to buy a new home and still pick out our flooring, tile, counter tops, etc. We met with Kamela for over 2 hours and were able to choose everything all at once. She had some great ideas that I hadn’t thought of at all and we’re so excited!!! Other employees will be coming to Wichita soon, and we’ll certainly tell them about Kamela and National Flooring. Our builder works with her exclusively and we see why he chooses her to work with his buyers.
