From the first time I walked into B. Lakins Tile, I knew I was in the company of somebody who knew the tile and flooring business and that I didn’t have to go anywhere else. And that I wouldn’t go anywhere else, ever, for any of my flooring needs. I have since sent many friends and family members to meet with Brenda(and anybody else who will listen!) Brenda not only has a great selection, but she uses her expertise and decorating skills to help you pick what would work best for your space. In this time of COVID, she has still made herself and her business accessible while doing so in a safe manner. I will not go anywhere else and I will continue to send people her way as I know they will be treated in a fair manner while getting the best care. I am so pleased to write this letter of recommendation as you just can’t go wrong.
I have had the pleasure of dealing with Brenda Lakins for over thirty years. She has recommended tile for our last three homes. Since I am challenged when it comes to picking tile and decor options, Brenda has been an invaluable resource! We were looking for a tile for our front foyer a few years ago and I dragged home tile after tile to no avail. Brenda made a suggestion (which I hated in the store!) and she said...just take it home and try it. I think it is what you are looking for. It was perfect!! Though she had only been in our home a couple of times her instinct was spot on! This has always been our one stop shop for tile and Brenda works hard to make sure that customers are pleased with their final choices/results!
My husband and I were building our dream home and were looking for flooring and tile for the entire house. I went to 4 places in Kingston and found Brenda Lakins at my last stop. I knew right away that I wanted to deal with Brenda. First off, she is very friendly, approachable, and very easy to talk to. Secondly, she is extremely knowledgable and was able to answer any question I had and offer some good suggestions. Thirdly, her stock is great. For such a small shop, she has so many great options. I ended up getting very high end engineered hardwood flooring for the entire house, minus the bathrooms, which we tiled and then I got some very unique backsplash for the kitchen. We couldn't be happier with our choices and with our experience with Brenda. I have already recommended Brenda to friends and clients and will continue to do so. She is the best!
