Re: CarpetsWell done with this, Swimmy. It certainly pays to shop around.
Re: CarpetsOrdered a 4m x 4m carpet from SCS for our lounge, when I got home there was 18" of floorboards showing, all round the edge of the room, got straight on the phone to complain, they said, haven't you seen the TV advert, there's 25% off everything.
Re: CarpetsWe bought a lovely Gold Twist, for 2 Bed and hallway and stairs, that was £21 per sq metre and that was from HICKS, we are very happy with it.
Re: CarpetsYes, large sums can be saved by shopping around for carpets and not forgetting the small independent shops. When we moved about 5yrs ago we decided on the commercial flooring Flotex for our whole house carpeting due to its scrubbable durability and our ability to spill almost everything.
