The Carpetstore: Magic Carpets

Clay Miller

Are you investing in a new carpet or flooring? The expert team at the Carpetstore will help you make the best decision

According to Clay Miller – and he should know – West London is a hotspot for carpet moths. ‘Five years ago, one in 50 customers said it was a problem,’ recalls the co-owner of the Carpetstore. ‘Now, it’s one in three. Curiously, carpet reps tell us that it’s not an issue elsewhere. But it’s why we always ask suppliers, is it moth-proof ? If it isn’t, we don’t touch it. All our carpets are moth-treated.’

Clay has been in the business since schooldays, when he used to join his carpet fitter uncle on jobs, and he and his brother Joe have been running the Carpetstore for 25 years.

They stock a huge selection of carpets and stair runners in wool, natural and man-made fibres (all come in a fantastic choice of colours and classic and modern designs) as well as an extensive range of remnants and vinyl, tile and laminate flooring.

‘Natural carpets, such as seagrass, sisal, coir and jute, are really popular at the moment,’ says Clay. ‘Also, there’s a growing demand for made-to-measure handmade rugs. People used to have carpets in their living rooms, now stone and wood floors are fashionable. But they can be cold, hence the interest in designer rugs. We deal with manufacturers that can produce any rug in any size; we’re currently stocking 20 different designs and can always get more.’

Personal service is the hallmark of the Carpetstore. ‘We have four teams of fitters, all of whom have been with us at least 10 years,’ explains Clay. ‘We provide free estimates and planning advice, we’ll take up and remove existing carpets, lay hardboard, ply and latex sub-floors and cut and trim doors. We also handle bespoke fitting for staircases and supply carpets for offices, shops and communal properties.’

Whether you know a twist pile from a loop pile, an Axminster from a Saxony, at the Carpetstore you’ll get friendly guidance and a superb choice for every budget and taste.
