Carpet Buying Guide
There are a range of carpet types, styles and contruction options available which will all have an affect on the performance and wear. We will help guide you to make the best choice for your needs whether you are carpeting one room all your whole home.
Shorter pile carpets generally wear better than long pile carpets and these factors need to be taken into consideration.
Wool has always been regarded as the best option for wear and comfort, but over the years, better synthetic fibres have been developed to closely match the benefits of wool whilst having the added bonus of being bleech cleanable and stain resistant.

Wood & Laminate Buying Guide
As well as being practable and easy to fit, there are a large variety of laminate floor options available, designed to bring home the authentic look of real wood or tiled flooring.
Laminate comes in various thicknesses and the general rule is the thicker the laminate, the greater the advantages. Thicker laminates will provide increased stability, better acoustic properties and stronger durability.
Each of our stores show a large range of laminate options and we offer a sample service so you can see the designs in your own home. We are a registered QuickStep dealer and display their full range of products.
Underlay Buying Guide
You will spend a lot of time, trouble and money selecting your new carpet so it makes sense to protect it with a good quality carpet underlay. Your underlay provides your carpet with essential support and so you should always buy the best underlay that your budget will allow.
Some carpets are manufactured with a built-in underlay (felt backed carpets) but most are hard backed and it is vital that they are fitted with a good carpet underlay.
Underlay acts as a shock absorber between your new carpet and the floor. Floors themselves have no "give" or resilience, so when you walk on a carpeted floor with no underlay all the pressure is absorbed by the carpet, rapidly accelerating its wear.
