Suncoast Flooring and Design at Gulf Breeze is under new ownership, and Carrie Carver and her husband, Jeremy, have been working hard to let everyone know.
“We had a grand reopening and over 75 people came,” Carver said. “We also have an after-hours trade event on October 27 with the Gulf Breeze Chamber of Commerce, so we’re picking up the name and our marketing materials together.”
Suncoast floors and design, located at 5668 Gulf Breeze Parkway, Unit 2B, boasts a passion for flooring and professional installation, according to Carver. From hardwood and vinyl to carpet and tile, Suncoast Flooring and Design offers a selection of quality products for your flooring needs.

“I ran a flooring store before,” Carver said. “When I was 30, I was hired by a friend to help start his flooring store and run it. My husband had a manufacturing business where he made cabinet doors.”
These experiences, coupled with Carrie working as a full-time real estate agent and Jeremy as a financial advisor, made the purchase of Suncoast Flooring and Design too good an opportunity to pass up.
“There are three flooring stores in Gulf Breeze, but there isn’t one in Navarre or around Navarre,” Carver said. “So we saw this as a great way to bring a great product and provide a great installation experience.”
With this fresh start for Suncoast Flooring and Design comes a new location as well.
“The store was just the front of (US) 98 for a very long time,” Carver said. “I believe for 16 or 17 years. We’ve moved to the back corner, and it’s a little easier space to get quality items in the store and not have a million items that nobody knows about. Choose.”
Carver is enthusiastic about one style in particular.
