Since 1999, Riverbend Interiors Floors & Décor has been the business of choice for Cochrane homeowners. With a full line of flooring, cabinet hardware, custom countertops, and installation services, customers are happy to have all their design needs met in one convenient location.
Owners Cathy Haynes and Greg Bruins, along with sales and office manager Erin Munro, inspire a team that is committed to providing knowledgeable advice and outstanding customer service.
Cathy had been working in the home renovation and flooring industry for over 10 years before opening Riverbend and knew she could offer the Town of Cochrane something unique. She had developed longstanding relationships with customers and industry leaders, along with a wide array of experience and knowledge of interior design, products, and installation methods; but most importantly, an innate ability to offer personalized service and honest business practices.
In 2011, Greg came on board as a business partner and as a second generation flooring professional. He has further fueled the store’s level of expertise and is a great asset to the do-it-yourself customers who sometimes require extra guidance and technical assistance.
“Our focus is offering quality products at competitive prices. There are so many different products available and each project is unique. It quickly becomes very overwhelming for customers and we pride ourselves on simplifying the renovation process and choosing the best product for their project,” says Cathy. “We have a huge selection of different types of flooring and ensure our customers are educated on what will perform best for them.”
Greg adds, “We offer professional installation of all of our products including all types of flooring, tile and counter tops. Our products and services are fully warrantied so if something does go wrong, you can be assured that we will stand behind our work.”
While there is plenty of good design information out there, not all of it is reliable, and the large number of home renovation television shows can set some very unrealistic expectations.
As Cathy explains, “Not all products are intended for all applications and the wrong product or incorrect installation can cause your floor to fail. We get an idea of our customers’ lifestyles, if there are kids and/or pets, and of course their design ideas so they can choose the right kind of flooring. Not all products are created equally. The right flooring is an investment in your home and should add value, not create headaches and expense down the road. Super inexpensive flooring options are inexpensive for a reason, whether it’s unethical manufacturing practices and sourcing of materials for production, unqualified products that do not meet proper air quality and environmental standards, or substandard quality and performance.”
You’ll find classic, time-proven products along with trending ones at Riverbend.
“A lot of our customers prefer the rustic and natural elements of design while others are on board with the clean lines and more contemporary aesthetic that the design industry showcases in magazines and show homes,” adds Erin. “The cool grey and white trend has softened considerably, and now warmer tones and mixed elements are gaining ground.”
Shopping at Riverbend Interiors means enjoying a huge selection of products in a relaxed, family-oriented environment with a team committed to helping you finish your project on time and on budget.
“We have longstanding relationships with our customers, contractors, installers, suppliers, and the Cochrane community. We have built these relationships on honesty, expertise, and hard work. Our greatest asset is our product knowledge and installation expertise, so we can ensure each project is done properly. A price match guarantee means customers get the best price while shopping locally and avoiding driving all over the city.”
Riverbend Interiors is pleased to celebrate 20 years and looks forward to hosting an open house on October 26. Air 91.5 FM will be on site, and the celebration will include contests and door prizes. To further mark this milestone anniversary, sales will be held throughout the store during October and November.
