Perfect flooring for your home

A handy guide to finding the right rugs or carpets to suit any space.

More and more, we find that instead of choosing feature walls or statement pieces for a room, people now turn to flooring for that ‘wow’ factor.

Finding the right flooring to do the job doesn’t have to be difficult. At Arighi Bianchi, our huge range of exclusive flooring, carpets and rugs has something for every home. Plus, we’ve put together this quick five-step guide to help make choosing your flooring that little bit easier…

Step one – consider the space

The first thing to do is think about the room. Space is important (and we offer a free measuring service), but also think about how the room will be used…

Kids, dogs and wet shoes downstairs can be messy – luckily, our polypropene rugs are very easy to clean and take care of!

Flatter piles such as our Cameo and Mad Men range don’t absorb as much moisture and odour. And our selection of luxury laminate and Karndean hardwood floors are perfect for both living and utility areas.

Alternatively, if you want a thicker, welcoming feeling underfoot, our range of Cascade rugs are ideal.

Step two - the right style for you

We’re proud of our colour selection service. We always advise customers to visit us in-store and not just online, to truly appreciate the range of tones and textures, with hundreds to choose from.

Many clients will bring in samples from their sofa, wallpaper, or really any item out in the world that they like – we can then coordinate the colours of your rug, carpet or flooring to match, instantly.

Step three – better design

We offer a bespoke interactive design service in-store, where you can view our full range of designs in a digital rendering of your home.

Experiment, explore and invent – we can manufacture rugs with any image you like, to fit perfectly in your home

Step four – staying on trend

At Arighi Bianchi, we believe in an ongoing search for the finest new flooring solutions and styles. We visit nationwide trade shows, the UK’s largest flooring retailers, and approach the best and newest manufacturers to guarantee we stay on trend.

Lately, we’ve seen a lot of flat weaves, loop piles, chunky yarns and thick plush piles – something to suit every home, in bold, fabulous-feeling fabrics.

We proudly stock carpets and rugs from top-name brands such as Roger Oates, Crucial Trading, Arlo, Victoria and more.

Step five – proper fitting

We offer a complete service, helping you every step of the way from selecting your flooring to delivery and fitting. 

Our dedicated, expert in-house fitters will measure, cut, prepare and fit your flooring in no time, without too much disruption.

With over 100 years’ shared experience in our flooring department, we understand how important it is for things to be right first time, every time. We’re proud of what we do. And we can’t wait to show you.
