Exceptional Flooring and Carpets, Wimbledon
Flooring & Carpets, Wimbledon
As you live with a carpet for long enough, a lot can happen to it over the years: set-in stains, water damage, or even just general wear and tear that makes it look shabby. With wear, your carpets are likely to continue to worsen until they become eyesores that bring down the appeal of your entire home.
While you can possibly prevent or reverse that deterioration with proper care and maintenance, many of us do not have the time, given the busy lives we lead today. One day, you wake up and realize that the time has come for you to purchase a new carpet or carpets, or another type of flooring, for your London home.
Fortunately, our flooring experts at Graham Lee Carpets are ready to assist you with our wide range of first-rate services. With our broad selection of floor coverings and our expert advice, you’ll be able to pick out the style of carpet or wood flooring that fits your unique taste and the needs of your home.
At Graham Lee Carpets, we will transform your household into one of the most comfortable places in London. We are happy to provide customers with in-store advice or come out for a home consultation.
We are not just carpet retailers, either. As a 61-year-old family business, we have many years of hands-on experience and extensive knowledge of carpet and flooring installation, making us one of Wimbledon and Greater London’s best carpet fitters. We’ve been in business since 1960 when founders Fred Whant and Fred Kemp opened our first store in Mitcham, naming it by combining the names of their eldest sons, Graham Whant and Lee Kemp. Today, our stores are in Cheam, Worcester Park, and Ewell, but we serve a far wider area from our South London base.
Our Shops are able to advise on a wide range of flooring
At our carpet store serving Wimbledon, we also offer a lot more than just carpets:
Types of Carpet in Wimbledon
One of the most complicated things about fitting new carpets or flooring into a Wimbledon home or business is navigating the wide range of choices available. Because of the diversity of flooring solutions, carpet shops supply a large variety of carpet/flooring that differ in design, material, and comfort. The best way to find carpets/flooring that fits your home is by knowing about all the different types. For carpets, these types include:
Nylon Carpet – South London businesses and residences often choose nylon flooring for their interiors because of its inherent resilience. Nylon is probably the best option for any home or store that experiences heavy foot traffic because nylon will last many years despite heavy use
Polyester Carpet – London home and business owners choose polyester carpeting when they want stain resistance similar to nylon but at a less expensive price. This material is softer but doesn’t stand up as well over time, as it gradually becomes crushed under heavy foot traffic.
Wool Carpet – Using wool as carpet flooring is ideal for homes. It’s soft and pleasant to the touch, naturally repels dirt, and resists crushing better than polyester. However, wool carpets can be costly and high-maintenance, requiring frequent upkeep to ward off insects and eliminate stains.
Choosing the Right Type of Home Carpets, Wimbledon
While the range of flooring products can be daunting at first, our in-store sales teams at Graham Lee Carpets have extensive knowledge of fitting homes with carpets and flooring that complement your style. Wimbledon residents can feel at ease knowing that, with our decades of experience in the flooring industry, you’ll be able to have your dream floor covering.
To keep from becoming overwhelmed with choice in the store, you can focus on a few specific traits to help you select the carpets, vinyl, or wood flooring that match your needs and tastes. The most important one is figuring out where you will place them, which informs everything about the most appropriate type of carpets to get for different areas of your Wimbledon home.
If you need carpeting for somewhere that sees a lot of traffic, we recommend nylon and wool as durable carpeting materials that can withstand being walked on all day. While polyester is very plush and one of the best-feeling flooring options, it tends to get matted down after much foot traffic, so it’s best for the house’s less-travelled areas.
While in our carpet shop or browsing samples of distinctive brands with an interior designer, remember that carpet tiles can serve as an excellent tool in deciding upon the possible look and feel of your home’s floor.
Other Flooring Types (Vinyl, Laminate, Commercial)
In addition to carpets, our Graham Lee Carpet team is quite experienced in recommending and installing several other flooring types. Wimbledon customers can order professional fitting and installation services for vinyl, laminate, and commercial flooring from our website. No matter which flooring solutions you pick, our team is ready with fast and courteous service for any area in your home or business.
Each flooring option offers distinct benefits to our Wimbledon customers.
Vinyl and luxury vinyl are flooring options that home and business owners often use to replace higher-maintenance floors such as wall-to-wall carpeting. Vinyl is cost-effective and durable, able to withstand large amounts of punishment while still providing quality comfort. For added quality, at Graham Lee Carpets, we can supply Amtico vinyl tiles, a luxury vinyl flooring option that comes in a multitude of different designs. Amtico vinyl flooring can achieve the look of stone, tile, or wood.
Interior designers often use laminate flooring for Wimbledon buildings in place of more expensive wood or stone materials. It’s not quite as durable as standard or luxury vinyl tiles but is a solid, low-maintenance option for Wimbledon kitchens, hallways, and bedroom floors.
Here at Graham Lee Carpets, we provide a wide range of flooring options from several leading brands as part of our commercial flooring service. From safety flooring to rubber flooring to wood flooring, our team of fitters will ensure that any Wimbledon business, school, or hospital will get the best floors possible. Our cost and service are unbeatable.
