Flooring matters

For a flawless feeling underfoot with stunning looks to match, M H Flooring is here to help.

If you actually stop and take the time to look at your flooring, it can be surprising how much of an impact it can have on the look and ambiance of your home. It might be that you’ve moved into a new house and the flooring doesn’t match up with your interior design vision, or that 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 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 Honeychurch – owner of M H Flooring, with more than 31 years’ experience in the flooring trade – offers his advice: “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.”

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 households 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 – I speak from experience as in our home we spend a lot of time in the garden with family, friends and our dog, so chose Amtico LVT flooring as it’s extremely hard wearing and easy to clean.”

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. As an example, Mark continues: “We recently completed a large water mill conversion near the north Cornish coast. Working closely with our client Simon Williams of Williams Creative Homes, we supplied and fitted a variety of flooring including new hardwood flooring, reclaimed Parquet, Amtico LVT and Sisal Carpets to meet our brief, combining traditional with contemporary. In the feature lounge we fitted reclaimed parquet flooring, which we sanded and re-finished to create a stunning and unique floor.”

As one of the longest-running independent flooring companies in Cornwall, the M H  Flooring showroom displays flooring to suit everyone. With the addition of the new Amtico stands the showroom now has even more to offer customers. Mark 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.” And the customer testimonials speak for themselves, as one (of many) stellar customer reviews reveals: “Mark did an excellent job advising us about, and fitting our new floor. From start to finish the service was excellent.”

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.
