Stripes: Putting the S into Stylish and Sophisticated

Stripes: Putting the S into Stylish and Sophisticated

12 February 2018

It’s not a secret that the team here at Tailored Flooring has a love for all things striped. We cannot seem to get enough of them, and it looks like we’ve passed this onto all of our customers and followers! Our suppliers know exactly what we like and they never let us down with the amount of choice and variety that they provide us with. There’s simply too many stripey options out there for us to showcase them all to you. But we have picked our favourite 5 striped carpets to get your design taste buds tingling.

Fleetwood Fox Brompton 1

 Our first choice is the beautiful Brompton 1 which is one of three from this range by Fleetwood Fox. Made from New Zealand Wool we feel this carpet effortlessly adds style and character to a home. The simple use of three colours allows the design to be extremely versatile and works with many different colour schemes and themes. If you are wanting a striped carpet that adds a real wow-factor without being too drastic this is the choice for you.  

Alternative Flooring Margo Selby Collection Frolic Westbrook

Alternative Flooring is renowned for their fun, creative and inspiring carpet ranges. The recent years we have seen multiple collaborations along with their Quirky B range which have all been huge successes. Their most recent collaboration has seen them teaming up with the wonderful Margo Selby. The Frolic Westbrook is just one from the new stripe collection which we absolutely love! The mix of different sized and coloured stripes is stunning and is perfect if you want to define different zones in a room whilst linking the spaces. 



Talenzo Bakerloo Marylebone

 Bakerloo is part of the hugely popular Tube Collection by Talenzo.  The collection is an offering of narrow multi-stripes and the Marylebone is a mix of neutral browns, greys and beige. We especially like the monotone colours used in this carpet and the versatility that comes along with them. This carpet allows you to either keep the rest of the interior neutral or on the other hand experiment and add a splash of colour. You decide!

Crucial Trading Audrey Sunrise

What better way to add some colour to a room than with the Audrey range from Crucial Trading. This wonderful stripe collection is something else and whatever your colour scheme we're sure there will be a stripe to suit you. This is one of our favourites because the colours instantly turn a room into a happy place and you cannot help but smile when you see it. If you have a large bright room that needs some colour adding then why not choose 'Sunrise'?


Westex Audley 

Having a striped carpet doesn't always have to mean that you are adding colour or a focal point to a room. There are also some very classic style striped carpets that ooze sophistication like this Westex Audley carpet. With over 35 years in the business Westex is always a company that you can rely on to produce a good quality premium carpet that you will be happy with for many years.

    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.

    I am very pleased with the final carpet. Thank you very much for getting it sorted. I wanted to thank you and the rest of your team for an excellent service. We are very happy with the end result.

    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.

    We have used Darren from Tailored flooring on a number of jobs, and without exception have found the service to be exceptional. Attention to detail is a matter of course. Sound advice is always offered… corners never cut. A competitive service that we will continue to use.

    Darren and his team carried out the fitting of both carpet and vinyl flooring most efficiently, working around our difficult schedule with good grace in a most professional manner.

    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.
