OverviewSuggest Edit

Across the UK we have been installing all types of flooring for many years. We are a progressive, customer service focussed company that goes beyond an extensive product range of floorcoverings and includes

• Curtains & Blinds

• Showhome & Design Services

• Furniture & Lighting

We are a national company with a unique network of 12 regional centres. Since 1992 we have enjoyed considerable growth, allowing us to build considerable financial resources, a robust operational structure, fantastic buying power and an experienced workforce of 200+ employees. This gives us great stability and it means you can trust us to meet all your needs; now and in the future.

Across many markets in the public and private sectors, our commitment to excellent products, very competitive prices and industry leading service standards remains as strong today as it was when we started business in 1992. This is reflected in our proudly held position as the UK’s largest flooring contractor.
