A Little More About Carolina Creekhouse

Hello! I’m Shannon Blake, the founder of Carolina Creekhouse. 

I get asked a lot how the company started and what was the driving force behind it all, and I must admit, it started because I was a frustrated mom and business owner who needed help! 

I was tired of constantly cleaning the area rugs throughout my house.  Between dirty boots, pets, teenagers and all the comings and goings, my rugs were disgusting. Washing the rugs was time consuming, labor intensive, and always ended with disappointing results. I knew I needed to find a better solution that would make my life easier. As a long-time business owner, I started researching alternatives and found a wipeable material that is perfect! 

Why It's the Perfect Material

The vinyl material I found can be printed in endless designs, is extremely durable and able to withstand heavy foot traffic and can easily be wiped clean with a wet cloth.  The functionality and beautiful appearance were everything I dreamed they could be, so I decided to launch Carolina Creekhouse to share this wipeable rug solution with others.  

A Family Name

The Blake family (my in-laws) have owned a creek house in Pawleys Island, South Carolina for more than four generations.  It is where we spend our best quality time together floating the creek, catching crabs, paddle boarding and hanging on the dock.  Because this new product would also be perfect for the creek house with nonstop sandy feet, I decided to name the company Carolina Creekhouse after our favorite place on earth.  

Our Team & Location

Carolina Creekhouse is based in Milton, Georgia and run by a team of women.  The hundreds of designs we have on the site were created in-house and include over a dozen shapes and sizes to choose from.  Our team is passionate about respecting our southern traditions, while focusing on making life easier by providing a pretty and practical material that can be used in all areas throughout your home.  

Carolina Creekhouse FloorFlats and TableFlats are made in Georgia, USA and have a one-year warranty.  Our mighty team provides top notch customer service and free design consultations. 

Why FloorFlats?

Our Flats are non-toxic, pet & kid friendly and safe for any hard surface floors or tables. They are hypo-allergenic for families with allergies, lay-flat for families with mobility issues or lots of people in and out, and pretty – because everyone likes pretty! The best part is that they are easily wiped clean with mild soap and water – move from washable to wipeable and free up your time to do more of what you love.
