Some of the most exciting and practical flooring designs can be found at stockists here in Yorkshire as Jane Ramsay discovers

‘As a bespoke manufacturer our clients have never been hindered by any particular season’s colour trend. There has been a marked move away from

bland neutrals - The carpet is no longer a mere surface texture but a carrier and initiator of colour to the interior.’

Brian Burton, designer Signature Carpets

‘A hardwood floor is both stylish and practical. Oak is the most popular wood floor with its vast range of grades you can cover the whole spectrum of looks. It ages well and you can select from clear grades through character to pippy and the more distinctive rustic appearance. Style can be further enhanced by choosing the edge finish of the floorboard from plain, bevel, arris, or planed tongue and grooved. A floor laid with a selection of random width floorboards gives an immediate period look. Matching with skirting and architrave will achieve a sleek and seamless finish.’

Liz Boddy, director John Boddy Timber
