The Secret to Carpets

Most people have carpet somewhere in their home be it the living room or bedroom. Soft underfoot, a variety of colours and finishes makes it very versatile. But did you know that carpet can help with air quality too. Fibres trap dust and particles in the carpet ready to be hoovered rather than lingering in the air. At Colchester Carpets & Flooring we have hundreds of carpet choices from top brand and low prices for both homes and commercial applications. Come and see us on Head Street in Colchester.


Try using laminate today!

Are you aware there’s a flooring option that’s simple to maintain, can be swept clean of pet hair, and can withstand the test of time, even when pets and youngsters give it a run for its money? It seems too good to be true, right? Wrong. Colchester Carpets has a large selection of laminate flooring in a variety of colours and designs. We have walnut, oak, beech, and a variety of other woods in stock! For additional information, see our ‘Laminate Flooring’ page.

To assist you, we provide samples of all flooring options so you can take them home and decide which one is best for you.


Tired of always cleaning?

Many people associate winter with cosy nights in front of a warm fireplace, but for those who have carpets, the fear of having to remove muddy paw or footprints comes to mind. Why not make a tiny adjustment that has a big impact? Installing laminate flooring in your home allows you to easily wash away muddy paw prints.

Winter grime, not in your house!

The carpet appears to be lovely, fluffy, and clean, but as soon as you open the door in the winter, dirt and leaves are dragged in, making cleaning difficult and time consuming. Rather than spending hours attempting to get mud out of your carpets, consider having laminate or vinyl flooring placed in your house, where mud can be wiped away in seconds. Perfect for high traffic or maintenance areas like hallways and utility rooms. The flooring options are available in a variety of colours and are all incredibly low maintenance yet extremely durable, allowing them to appear their best year after year.


Why only experience autumn once a year?

When you look outdoors, you may see autumn colours everywhere, but have you ever considered bringing those colours inside? There is always something just ideal for you, whether its rich orange rugs that serve as the finishing touch or hardwood flooring with deep crimson tones flowing through it. If you’re not sure which flooring option to choose, feel free to take some samples home with you or just simply contact a member of our staff for additional information.
