We pride ourselves on providing excellent quality workmanship across all client projects, both on time and within budget. Take a look at some of the previous projects we’ve completed for our satisfied clients below and if you have any questions about our services, contact us.
Hospital Flooring, Poole Hospital
Brief: The KC Carpets team were recently called in to complete a job at Poole Hospital. It was a multi-faceted job, with our engineers tasked with completing renovations to a bathroom, particular functional rooms and corridors, as well as to the front desk area. It was important to be as unintrusive and efficient as possible, in order to avoid disrupting hospital staff and their day-to-day operations.
Our Solution: We would like to thank Randell Construction, who we worked with on this project to great success.
The KC Carpet team’s first task was to complete renovations to the bathroom, specifically the floor – which as an area that frequently gets wet, needs special consideration when it comes to the chosen material.
Our fitters selected Granite Safe T flooring from Tarkett, which is a durable flooring specially designed for catering to heavy traffic, wet areas where safety is of the highest concern. The flooring possesses plenty of high-tech features, such as slip-resistant R10 grip for bare feet, and a Safety Clean XP surface which is stain resistant and easily maintained.
BioClad wall cladding was also installed, forming the corners of the room and welding the joints to lock the flooring in securely – providing one, hygienic and easy clean surface.
In the hospital corridors, we again worked on the flooring. Our team chose another Forbo Eternal Wood product, but went for a slight colour variation in warm chestnut.
This colour is slightly deeper in nature and provides a ‘warmer’ feel than the tropical beech.
Hotel Flooring Installation, Bournemouth
Brief: We were contacted by Premier Inn to supply and fit a range of flooring solutions for their 105-bedroom hotel on Bournemouth’s West Cliff.
We were tasked with fitting attractive, durable flooring throughout the entire hotel, including its 105 bedrooms, the kitchen, public spaces, staircases and back of house areas. Because of the varied nature of these spaces, we advised on the best solution for each area in order to deliver a stylish and hard-wearing finish.
For the bedrooms and lounge areas, we fitted highly durable Cavalier carpets. Because hotels experience high levels of traffic, they need carpet that can withstand greater than average amounts of wear and tear. Cavalier carpets are made from polypropylene, which has an inherently high tensile strength. This means, where other carpets might start to look tired and drab, Cavalier carpets will stay looking great even in busy areas. They can also be cleaned by bleach and are stain resistant, making them an ideal choice that’s easy to maintain.
Throughout the rest of the hotel, we fitted Amtico signature vinyl tiles and Altro wood-effect vinyl safety flooring. Vinyl flooring is a great choice for hotels as it looks fantastic while offering enhanced durability. It’s also easy to maintain and keep clean, which makes it ideal for busy, high-traffic areas.
The kitchen areas were fitted with safety vinyl flooring, to provide slip resistance and reduce the risk of injury (especially important in areas with an increased risk of moisture and spillages).
Our multi-skilled team of flooring fitters was able to deliver a wide range of flooring types to a high standard and finish. We were on a tight schedule and completed work on time and on budget.
The client was extremely happy with the speed of our installation team and the exceptional quality of the work provided. We were delighted to be recognised and chosen by such a well-known company and our professional, experienced team went above and beyond to deliver the high standards we’ve built our reputation on.
School Flooring Project in Salisbury, St Michael’s CE Primary School, Hampshire (Morgan Sindall Group)
Brief: Morgan Sindall contacted our team of experts to help assist with their new school development project in Salisbury. Our client needed high-quality education flooring throughout the school’s staircases, classrooms, bathrooms, library, cafeteria, kitchen, and staff room.
We used Heckmondwike supacord carpet tiles throughout the staircases, library, hallways, classrooms and staff rooms to have continuity in the school. This flooring solution is low maintenance, energy efficient and is a cost-effective choice for schools as if a tile gets accidentally damaged there’s no need for an entire flooring replacement.
Altro slip resistant vinyl flooring was used in bathrooms, kitchens, the cafeteria, and stairs as the flooring's materials have an R10 slip resistance value, which is essential for a safe educational establishment. The feature blue and green staircase and the standard staircase both have Quantum PVC stair nosings, which guarantees safety for all young students. The main staircase is now a striking feature within the building, its bright colours will catch the eyes of any student! The bold green edging not only is a fashion statement, but it's also designed so that young children can clearly see the edge of each step, which makes it safer for them to walk up and down the stairs with ease. The staircase has two different sections that include normal stairs and a seating area directly next to it, this will become a social focus point for many of the school's students.
The team also installed Whiterock Cladding on the school's kitchen walls to provide a hygienic and clean environment. Our Whiterock wall cladding is approved by the European Union (EU) for health and hygiene that guarantees cleanliness for all teachers and students. The Whiterock cladding can withstand up to 60 degrees, so our client doesn't have to worry about high temperatures affecting the product's warranty.
Our client Morgan Sindall is thrilled with the outcome of St Michael’s new school flooring, that include durable carpet tiles and slip resistant vinyl solutions. Our team of experts had a tight schedule to ensure the project was completed on time, and within budget but we achieved it! We worked closely with the builders site team in order to achieve our target, and provide quality flooring for the client.
Rob Easton, project manager at Morgan Sindall, had this to say about working alongside us: “KC Carpets and Flooring worked collaboratively with our project team at all levels to deliver an education project on time and to a good quality in a challenging set of site logistics.”
Office Flooring Installation, Positive Lending in Ringwood, Hampshire
Brief: Jade Aden Interiors contacted our team to partake in another joint project for client Positive Lending. Positive Lending is a leading finance broker within Hampshire, and they wanted to refurbish their office environment with new facilities and flooring. Ideally, they wanted a durable and flexible flooring option, for their kitchen and office space throughout their building. It was essential for the new flooring solutions to match the vibrant, and modern office refurbishment.
After a consultation with the client, we recommended that grey carpet tiles would be ideal for their open-plan office and boardrooms, while Tarkett Universal Safetred vinyl flooring would be great for the kitchen area. Tarkett Universal Safetred flooring is available in 16 designs and colours, our client chose dark grey as it gives a classic and simple tone to the office’s canteen area. The safety vinyl flooring has slip resistance R10 grip so it’s perfect for Positive Lending’s kitchen space, as it protects employees from slip and fall accidents from food or liquid spillages.
The light grey carpet tiles throughout the office and boardroom is durable against high traffic movements, which will make maintaining the floor easy for our client in the upcoming years. The client wanted a professional floor for their large office to keep the space looking bright. With their feature walls of bright green and pink, they wanted a subtle floor to flawlessly match all spaces within the office environment. Carpet tiles are popular for offices as if one tile gets damaged there’s no need to replace the entire flooring, you can simply replace the one tile which saves time and money for any business.
The client is pleased with their new office, and how speedy our team worked to ensure the project was completed on time and in budget. The carpet tile and vinyl flooring look great in Positive Lending’s office, and the overall joint office refurbishment has completely changed the space into a fun and vibrant working environment for the client’s team. Positive Lending is very happy with our team’s efforts and the results, we hope to work with Jade Aden Interiors again in the future.

Karndean Kitchen Flooring in Wimborne
Brief: Our customer approached the KC Carpets & Flooring team because they were searching for the perfect new flooring material for their kitchen. They had three main priorities for their new floor; it needed to be durable enough to cope with busy family life, be easy to clean and maintain so they wouldn’t have to spend lots of time and money on it, and it needed to be highly attractive in order to fit in with the rest of their home’s style.
In response to this tough, yet achievable, brief, the KC Carpets team recommended Karndean’s stunning Art Select range in a classic Herringbone design. The Art Select range from this leading manufacturer of premium flooring is bursting with all the charm and character of real wood but with all the ease and practicality that comes with imitation flooring, perfect for a busy kitchen area.
As this quality range is inspired by the natural beauty of wood and stone, each design embodies all the intricate detailing of mother nature to create wonderfully realistic designs. As well as providing highly attractive floors, Karndean’s vinyl is also budget friendly, water and stain resistant, long lasting, and provides a softer, quieter surface than wood, stone or tiles.
The customer was delighted with their gorgeous new kitchen floor and the service they received from the KC Carpets & Flooring team and left us a brilliant review; “I just wanted to thank you for the amazing flooring we've had laid...it looks fantastic and we're so pleased with the final result! Both fitters were great and they've done a really super job!”
Amtico Vinyl Flooring in Private Home
Brief: Our flooring fitters were tasked with installing a kitchen flooring material that not only looked great, but worked well too. As the floor was to be installed in a kitchen, it needed to be easy to clean, hygienic, long-lasting and match the client’s beautiful dark blue cupboards.
To fulfil the client’s tough brief, the experienced KC Carpets team suggested installing a gorgeous luxury vinyl flooring from Amtico, one of the UK’s leading flooring manufacturers and is widely regarded by the industry for their stunning realistic effects and unbeatable durability.
Vinyl was a great choice for this client as it fulfils all their requirements; it is long-lasting, easy to clean and it looks beautiful. The client was able to choose from a huge selection of styles from our shop in Wimborne and chose a classic Herringbone design surrounded with a two-tile border.
Once our installation team had perfectly fitted the luxury Amtico flooring, the client was absolutely delighted with the finished result. The quality of the installation highlighted the attractive style and design of the vinyl flooring and the natural wood colour complemented the blue kitchen cupboards perfectly.
