Beneath your feet

Fresh flooring and expert workmanship are what you can expect from MH Flooring.

M H Flooring is one of the longest-running independent flooring companies in Cornwall, with showroom flooring displays to suit everyone. With the addition of the new Amtico stands the showroom now has even more to offer customers. Mark Honeychurch, owner of MH Flooring, tells us: “We work very closely with our suppliers to provide excellent quality and value for money. We’re busier than ever due to having good product knowledge and excellent customer service. Customer testimonials, repeat business and recommendations have ensured our business has continued to grow, and with a talented apprentice now in his fourth year who has proven to be a fantastic asset, 34 years of floor laying experience is now being passed to the next generation.”

If you look at your flooring, it is surprising how much of an impact it can have on the look and ambiance of your home. Perhaps you have moved into a new house and the flooring doesn’t match up with your interior design vision, or you’ve trodden the same threads for years and your carpet is starting to look a little worse for wear. It could even be that your lifestyle and work needs have changed and you need to upgrade your flooring to suit, such as having children or getting a puppy, in which case an easy-clean hard floor would perhaps be preferable to carpet. Whatever it is, Mark offers his advice: “The importance of a ‘homely’ feeling has never been greater. If you are thinking about changing your flooring, I would recommend looking at all the options available and we can then discuss the product best suited to your needs.” Continuing to prioritise complete customer satisfaction and quality of workmanship to ensure their clients are able to realise the full potential of a stunning new floor, the team work closely with their selected suppliers to offer the best products from British manufacturers, including carpets traditionally made in Kidderminster with British wool, and Stunning Amtico flooring, also made here in the UK.

For those seeking to add a luxury touch to their homes, carpet remains the obvious choice – after all, nothing beats the feeling of stepping out of bed to the warmth of carpet underfoot. For a lot of homes however, flooring needs to be able to stand up to the Cornish outdoor lifestyle, and historically, hardwood has been the go-to choice for a classic, timeless look with only a small amount of maintenance to keep it looking its best. But trends have changed over recent years, with luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) such as Amtico becoming increasingly popular, their easy maintenance and long warranties appealing to homes where flooring is likely to be put rigorously through its paces. As Mark puts it: “Living in Cornwall we’re lucky to be surrounded by sea and countryside. The ideal flooring for a family home in Cornwall would therefore be hard-wearing and easy to keep clean so a good option would be to choose LVT flooring.”

The team at M H Flooring have years of experience to provide you with impartial advice and flooring to suit your home and budget. “We offer a complete service including initial consultation, survey and design, with a free no-obligation quote,” explains Mark.

Inside the showroom on Redruth’s Cardrew Industrial Estate, you’ll find a wide selection of styles and finishes to choose from, in hardwood, LVT, carpets and vinyl, so if your floor needs an upgrade, we highly recommend paying a visit. With a team on hand to help advise and walk you through the process, you’re sure to find precisely the flooring that your home and lifestyle needs.
