Carpet King Carpet One Floor & Home is your local flooring retail store serving the Marion, Iowa, area. We have been a family-owned business since 1977 and pride ourselves on giving you an experience worth coming back for! Our flooring options begin with carpet; however, we have many well-known brands for wood flooring, luxury vinyl and vinyl tile, laminate, tile, stone flooring, and more. We specialize in both residential and commercial installation, and we have a team of dedicated professionals who cater to our client's needs.


Since its establishment in 1977, Carpet King Carpet One has proudly served Marion, maintaining its steadfast presence in the community over the decades. While the years have passed, our commitment to excellence remains unwavering. Evolving with the times, our store has transitioned from showcasing rolls of carpet on the main floor to offering a wide array of samples, ensuring a more personalized and convenient shopping experience for our valued customers. This transformation allows us to expand our flooring selections, providing an extensive range for customers to explore and select from, catering to diverse tastes and preferences.

In 2018, Carpet King Carpet One underwent an extensive remodel of its location, elevating both the exterior and interior with upgraded finishes. These renovations were meticulously crafted to not only enhance the aesthetic appeal but also to redefine the customer experience. With attention to detail at every turn, our remodeled space reflects our commitment to providing our customers with the utmost quality and sophistication in both our products and the environment.

Now, customers can seamlessly find precisely what they need and promptly place their flooring orders, streamlining the shopping process. From its humble beginnings as the new kid on the block to becoming a cherished trademark in the community, Carpet King Carpet One has proudly served Marion for nearly 50 years. Throughout its esteemed history, the brand has consistently upheld its reputation as a trusted name, providing unparalleled quality, service, and reliability to generations of loyal customers.

Family-Owned Marion Flooring Company

In 1977, Shirlene and Raymond Houdeshell laid the foundation for our business with passion and dedication. Their sons Brett and Brad were integral parts of the journey, deeply immersed in every aspect of the operation from a young age. Growing up within the business, they gained valuable hands-on experience, working in the store and warehouse, selling flooring, mastering installations, and assuming ever-expanding responsibilities. Their dedication and hard work paved the way for their eventual transition into management roles, where they further honed their skills and leadership abilities. Today, Brett and Brad proudly carry on the legacy as owners, continuing to uphold the values of integrity, excellence, and customer satisfaction instilled by their parents over four decades ago.

With the addition of Brett’s son Tyler in the installation field and Brad's son, Blake, to the store's leadership, Carpet King Carpet One proudly embraces a three-generation legacy. The Houdeshell family views their success as synonymous with community success, understanding that their roots are deeply intertwined with Marion. As a family-owned business, Carpet King Carpet One maintains a unique pulse on the community, fostering a genuine connection with its residents. Unlike larger corporations where decisions may be dictated from afar, Carpet King Carpet One prioritizes its customers' needs, offering personalized assistance in selecting the perfect flooring solutions for their homes or businesses. With a commitment to excellence and a heartfelt dedication to serving their community, the Houdeshell family and Carpet King Carpet One continue to flourish, ensuring that each customer receives the care and attention they deserve.
