The Flooring Nook is a locally owned and operated flooring and design center ran by husband and wife team: Dan & Shaina Freitas. Shaina's father and grandfather were both flooring installers, and they introduced Dan to the business after him and Shaina met in 2001. Dan started "Dan the Tile Man" in 2004 and over the next 10 years developed a wonderful relationship with Tim Horn, owner of "Jim's Ceramic Tile". When Jim was ready to retire, Dan and Shaina purchased "Jim's Ceramic Tile" and changed the name to "The Flooring Nook". In 2017 they built a state of the art showroom located at 2077 Old St. James Road. They have now grown a small team and continue striving to bring high end; quality flooring, installation, and design to Rolla and the surrounding areas.
