Flooring, we’ve got it covered
Discovering the best flooring solutions for your home from the experts at MH Flooring.
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. If your carpet is looking a bit worse for wear, or you’ve moved into a new house and the flooring doesn’t match up with your interior design style, then investing in a new floor can make all the difference. It might even be the case that you’ve simply outgrown your current type of flooring and need to upgrade due to lifestyle changes, such as having children or getting a puppy, making an easy-clean hard floor a better option to carpet.
“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”
We get some advice from the owner of MH Flooring, Mark Honeychurch, who has over 30 years’ experience in the flooring trade, 18 of which have been spent running his own business. Mark tells us: “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.”
When it comes to choosing suitable flooring, hardwood flooring is a popular choice for a classic, timeless look with only a small amount of maintenance to keep it looking its best. However, trends have changed over recent years with luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) such as Amtico becoming increasingly popular, as they are easy to maintain and come with a long warranty as standard. Carpet is still traditionally the choice for the luxury touch as nothing beats the feeling of stepping out of bed to the warmth of carpet underfoot. “Living in Cornwall we’re lucky to be surrounded by sea and countryside” says Mark, “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. Mark explains: “We offer a complete service including: initial consultation, survey and design, with a free no-obligation quote. We have 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 MH Flooring showroom displays flooring to suit everyone. Mark tells us: “We work very closely with our suppliers to provide excellent quality and value for money. We’ve had lots of positive feedback since opening the showroom, we’re busier than ever due to having good product knowledge and excellent customer service.” And the customer testimonials speak for themselves – one customer wrote: “Mark did an excellent job advising us about, and fitting our new floor. From start to finish the service was excellent and we’re really pleased with the end result.” The showroom has a wide selection of styles and finishes to choose from in hardwood, LVT, carpets and vinyl so we definitely recommend visiting to really appreciate the excellent quality and styles available.
