When organising a flooring installation project, choosing the right carpet fitters is essential.
Carpet tiles have been a firm favourite in the education, retail, hospitality and office sectors for over 40 years. Carpet tiles are different from regular carpet as they are not just one continuous flooring solution, they're made of either multiple planks or tile shapes that can be individually removed by a professional carpet fitter. This flooring solution can give the effect of a normal carpet floor just with more benefits of flexibility and cost-effectiveness. Additionally, you can also create a bold and unique floor with carpet tiles - as each tile is different you have the option of different colours or patterns if desired.
For any commercial establishment, the flooring you decide to install has the power to work with or against your business. It doesn’t seem like an important part of your business, but if you choose the wrong flooring type it can become a hindrance to your team and clients. For example, for the retail sector it’s rare for our experts to recommend carpet flooring as it wouldn't be durable enough for the sector’s busy foot traffic, or risks of food or drink spillages.
A large majority of business owners opt for office carpets as they are dependable and cost-effective flooring solution that’s suited to their various needs. Our wide range of office carpets is available in lots of different styles and colours, to be a subtle or bold addition to your office space.

Our experts are frequently asked what the differences are between laminate and LVT and the answer is simple; if you’re looking for a floor that is flexible, water-resistant and soft to walk on choose LVT, or if you want a floor that’s very similar to wood flooring’s properties but with a cheaper price tag, choose laminate!
