The Carpetstore: Family Values

Joe, Tony, Marvin, Danny and Clay

Investing in a new carpet or flooring? Whatever the budget, material or style, you’ll be spoilt for choice at The Carpetstore

Clay and Joe Miller grew up in the carpet business. While at school, they would join their uncle, who was a fitter, on jobs and the brothers have now run The Carpetstore for over 25 years. They stock a huge selection of carpets in wool, natural and manmade fibres (all come in a fantastic array of colours and classic and modern designs) as well as an extensive range of hard-wearing vinyl, tile and laminate hard flooring.

With so much experience, Clay and Joe are perfectly placed to observe – and respond to – changing fashions and customer preferences. ‘Stair runners are really popular at the moment,’ says Clay. ‘This autumn we’ll be stocking new pattern runners made by Fibre Flooring. We can cut the carpet to any size or shape, then we send it off to have the edges professionally finished with either binding tape or a whipping.

‘The other major trend is for made-to-measure bespoke rugs. They are the perfect way to warm up the stone and wood floors which are now so popular in living rooms. We have hundreds of samples in different materials – from contemporary and classic 100% wool to Natural Sisal fibre – and customers can choose any length and a width up to five metres and we’ll have the rug made for them.’

One thing is certain, whether it’s a carpet, rug or runner, there won’t be a problem with moths. ‘I’d say that one in three customers tell us that it’s been an issue for them,’ explains Clay. ‘That’s why all our carpets are moth-treated. A chemical is put on the yarn as it is spun, so, it’s actually built into the carpet rather than just being sprayed on top. That works perfectly.’

With four in-house teams of fitters, The Carpetstore service includes taking up and removing existing carpets, laying hardboard, ply and latex sub-floors and cutting and trimming doors. If you are investing in new carpet or flooring, whether for the home, office or a communal property, you’ll receive excellent personal service and straightforward advice.
