Tailored Flooring has moved to 80 Alma Road, Clifton, Bristol, BS8 2DJ

Come to our new showroom - new products and new design ideas

At Tailored Flooring, we’ve always believed that if you’re going to do a job, you should do it properly. That’s why, in order to continue suppling the same high quality and luxury carpets and floorcoverings, with excellent, authoritative and accountable service from initial enquiry to installation, we knew we needed a larger showroom.

It wasn’t long until we heard about a retail space that had become vacant on Alma Road, right by the Clifton Down Centre - and round the corner from all our favourite cafes – we knew it was right for us. We gave a lot of thought towards the showroom’s new design and even worked closely with some of Bristol’s most renowned interior designers in its inception.

The new shop is split into three distinct areas: carpets and runners, wood-flooring, and luxury vinyl and hard floors.

When you cross the threshold into the showroom, the first impression is one of dazzling colour combined with an impressive sense of space and airiness. Bold, solid colours are back in vogue and we’ve decided to showcase some of the fantastic, inhibited carpets by our favourite suppliers.

In the window we’ve chosen to display Alternative Floorings Quirky-B Liberty carpets which deploy iconic Liberty of London fabric designs which exude vitality and optimism. We’ve also dedicated another panel to the rest of Alternative Floorings Quirky B range which are a celebration of the interplay of colour and form.

We’ve chosen to highlight the 100% woolen runners by Fleetwood Fox and Hartley and Tisseir, available in customisable widths, colours and patterns. Tailored Flooring’s fitters specialise in fitting these highly specialist products on even the most tricky staircase.

We recognise that the turn in interior design towards more vivid colours isn’t appropriate for every floorspace which is why we’ve kept some of the more muted hues on display, emphasizing the variations in natural and pastel tones of our Sisal carpet range, along with the subtle gradation of classic twist piles by Victoria and Brintons.

We decided to contrast brightness of our display stands with a measured, yet majestic darkened Liquorice engineered Oak herringbone by Ted Todd, which also complements the suspended limed ceiling our carpenters created for us.

For second section of the showroom, raised slightly from the first, we decided to lay a classic Sisal carpet – the Malay Shanghai by Alternative Flooring. This is also where we have stationed our wood-flooring section.

We’ve chosen to exhibit a wide range of engineered oak boards by Woodpecker flooring exploring the huge variety of textures and finishes which oak is capable of. We also have plenty of sample board by other great suppliers such as Ted Todd and Havwoods which are available on request.

 In the final section of the showroom huge selection of Karndean design flooring sample boards. There is a stand for each range – the Knight-tile, the Opus, the Van Gogh, the Art-Select and the Michelangelo. Each range comprises of a tantalising mix of wood and stone effects in hundreds of finishes and patinas.

We’re delighted with the new showroom, but don’t take our word for it, why don’t you come down and visit us?  We look forward to seeing you.

    We used Tailored Flooring to replace the ugly, broken slate tiles in both our kitchen / diner and family bathroom. It was something we had been putting off for some time as we thought it would be quite an upheaval. In actual fact, it was one of the smoothest jobs we have had done on the house, thanks to Darren and his team. The knowledge and efficient service from the whole team was second to none and they were polite, punctual and a pleasure to have around whilst the work was completed. The result is two truly beautiful new floors which make us feel as if we have two brand new rooms. We are absolutely thrilled and would use Tailored Flooring again and again – we’ve already given a business card to a friend.

    Thank you very much for doing a lovely job it is much appreciated. Your team worked really efficiently together – we were impressed

    Your chaps did such a sensationally good job I thought I must send you these photos of them hard at work. A visitor here recently who seemed knowledgable on carpet laying said he had never seen better. He was particularly impressed with how you managed so professionally to replace the worn through stair and bathroom carpets with the relatively unworn parts of the main assignment. All, I probably told you almost 50 years old.

    The carpet looks lovely, thank you. The boys you sent were an extremely efficient and pleasant team. A joy to have in the house.

    Tom and his colleagues have done a great job of the fitting, and were extremely friendly and helpful. I thanked them but do please tell them that we've reported that back to you too.

    I used Tailored flooring to fit new flooring in my kitchen (Karndean), and carpet throughout the rest of the house. It's a project that took me just over a year, doing each room separately. Darren and team were so accommodating, great value for money and generally really nice guys. They allowed me to buy the carpet in one go,and store it with them until we were ready to have it fitted. They have their own team of fitters and were so flexible in arranging fitting, I'm not sure you'd get that with a national company. They were really good value for money, as I'd done my research and also got other quotes. All in all I'm really pleased, the carpet looks fabulous and I'd definitely use Tailored flooring again.

    From start to finish this was a first class service. Have used Phil's services before also and very professional every time. Carpet and tile fitters on time and job done to the highest standard. Will always go back to Tailored flooring.

    Tailored Flooring saved our bacon and did a better job than I could have imagined possible with our kitchen and bathroom flooring. We were due to have kitchen flooring fitted, so the kitchen was emptied, all appliances disconnected and completely unusable, and the fitter we had booked let us down the morning they were due to fit. I was in a complete panic as I had property valuations booked for the end of the week before which the kitchen and bathroom flooring had to be completed.

    Within an hour of leaving a message with Tailored Flooring, Darren had called me back and said he would be with me within the hour to see what he could do. Exactly as promised, he attended, measured and talked me through what he could do for us. It turned out we'd selected completely inappropriate flooring (soft vinyl in a huge, heavily used kitchen), and Darren guided us through better options available to us. To cut a long story short, he went out of his way to jiggle us into the schedule, order materials and the next day his fitter, Grant, was working on our flooring.

    The fitter, Grant, is a master. He was very tidy and careful (given the rest of our home is cream carpets), he worked quietly and very quickly. Each evening he tidied everything away. When it came to fitting the Karndean tiles, he talked me through the different options of laying them (brick style etc.) and also made his own recommendations from his experience. He measured the placement of the tiles to ensure there weren't any odd shaped tiles and when the job was complete it exceeded all our expectations.

    We managed to get everything straightened out at home in readiness for the property valuations, and two estate agents who had previously valued our home commented on the positive updates to the flooring.

    Also, they have recently moved to a beautiful show room on Alma Road which I walked past before they opened and had admired through the windows. If you want some inspiration, then definitely pop in for some very good quality, well merchandised and easy to browse carpets and flooring.

    I am really looking forward to using Tailored Flooring again for our next home.
