Q. What type of flooring should I have in my kitchen or bathroom?

A. You always need to remember that kitchens and bathrooms are humid environments so should be careful to avoid anything slippery. Modern vinyls are a good floor covering for these areas including Kardean bespoke vinyl flooring, but you can also use a suitable carpet

Q. How do I measure up a room for flooring?

A. Always measure from the extremities on width and length or, alternatively, we are happy to do this for you as part of our service

Q. Do I need underlay and why?

A. Yes, especially for carpets. The benefits of a good underlay are:
Improves comfort underfoot
Helps reduce wear to your carpet
Improves insulation and warmth
Increases sound insulation (especially from upstairs rooms!)
Helps smooth out some sub-floor imperfections

It’s also worth bearing in mind that you will need suitable underlayment for laminate flooring

Q. What types of carpet can I buy?

A. Carpets are generally wool, manmade fibres or a mixture of the two.
Wool carpets have a historic reputation for quality as they are strong & resilient, easy to care for and soft & warm.
Manmade carpets are stain resistant, tough and hard-wearing
A combination of the two such as wool rich 80 / 20 will them combine all of the above qualities making them ideal for the home

client testimonials

  • After much thought we decided to go with Coytes for our new carpet. They were professional and helpful, and made the whole process so easy. We were thoroughly impressed with everything from start to finish and will definitely be recommending them to our friends and family.

    Mr & Mrs Daniels

  • Well well well, what can I say about Coyte? Originally got in touch as I was looking at changing to a darker colour in the living room, having 3 dogs can be such a strain on a light carpet! The process was quick, easy and efficient, and I couldn’t have asked for a easier experience all round. Looking at doing the bedroom next and Coyte will definitely be my first point of call. Thanks for everything!
