Classic & Contemporary Carpeting

Despite an interior design trend towards sleek hardwood flooring, ceramic tiles and modern engineered vinyl flooring, wall-to-wall carpeting remains a hot favourite in British homes. Nothing adds a touch of luxury, softness and comfort to a room more than a plush carpet, and of course as a floor covering carpeting is hard to beat for its thermal and sound insulation properties.

Carpets are divided into a myriad of styles and types, depending on how they are made and what material they are made from.

Woven carpets are usually the most expensive – made using traditional methods on a loom – such as the well-known Axminster and Wilton carpet brands.

Most carpets sold in the UK are tufted carpets, made by machine with yarn punched into the base canvas. The cheapest tufted carpets are made of synthetics like polypropylene, polyester or nylon, or you can opt for natural wool carpeting. For the best of both worlds you can choose a wool/synthetic mix.

A modern trend that is gaining in popularity is carpeting made of plant-based materials, like sisal, jute, seagrass or coir, which is strong, stylish and hard-wearing.

Versatile Vinyl or Elegant Engineered Wood Flooring

Whether you need a marble-effect floor in your bathroom, fancy a flagstone look in your hallway, or need a hard-wearing surface for your shop floor, vinyl flooring or LVT (Luxury Vinyl Tiles) can fit the bill.

Modern vinyl flooring comes in a staggering range of designs, in sheets, tiles and planks, convincingly mimicking everything from grained hard wood to Moroccan mosaic, Victorian ceramic tiles, natural stone and even plain concrete. When it comes to flooring versatile vinyl is an interior designer’s dream.

Manufactured from layers of PVC and resin, vinyl flooring has the advantage of being water resistant, durable, and easy to clean. The best quality brands are cushioned for comfort and warmth underfoot.

If you’re looking for the real thing, we offer an extremely attractive range of Engineered wood flooring in Wiltshire. This consists of planks made from several layers of wood, pressed together, topped with a veneer of solid wood – shades of natural oak being the most popular choice.

When professionally laid engineered wood floors are indistinguishable from hard wood floors. They are especially compatible with underfloor heating systems, with a high moisture tolerance level.
