Domestic flooring buying guide
Here are our top 10 buying tips to make carpet buying easier:-
1) Visit an independent local carpet shop
You will receive better service and advice at a local carpet shop, having to pay equal- if not less- as you would at a big multiple. At Hurren and Glynn we are part of the Greendale Group of small carpet shops which means that we get big discounts that we pass straight on to you. Our staff are not paid commission on sales and are only interested in you purchasing the right carpet for your budget and area, not the carpet that pays the most commission!
2) Ensure the carpet you choose is right for the location
It is important to get the right carpet for the area. Some carpets are robust enough for stairs because of the heavy wear while others are not and may only be suitable for bedrooms. Bathrooms and kitchens need special attention due to the presence of water and the need for regular cleaning
3) Consider what the carpet is made of
Carpets are made from a variety of fibres these days including Wool, Nylon, Polyester, Coir and even plastic bottles! Each fibre behaves differently, influencing factors like ease of cleaning, appearance and wear and tear.
4) Get a quote for the complete job
Cheap advertised square metre prices do not guarantee the lowest price for the complete job. Ensure that the price you are quoted covers all necessary services such as fitting, underlay, door bars, carpet disposal and furniture moving, etc. If you are shopping around ensure all companies are quoting on exactly the same carpet so you are making a fair comparison.
5) Get the area professionally measured
If you have the area professionally measured and assessed the responsibility for errors is with the carpet shop. By careful planning it may also be possible to reduce the amount of carpet needed by utilising as much waste as possible. This should save you money.
6) Ask for a sample
Lighting can significantly alter the appearance of a carpet. Fluorescent lighting in a shop is not like the lighting in our homes. Ask the retailer for a sample to view the carpet in your lighting conditions.
7) Have the carpet fitted by an expert
Carpet is an expensive purchase and if it is not fitted correctly you will not get the pleasure from it you deserve.
8) Buy a new underlay
Investing in a new underlay will significantly increase the lifespan of a carpet- by as much as 40%! It will feel fantastic underfoot but even more important, it will keep your new carpet looking better for longer. Underlay also improves sound and heat insulation.
9) Buy the best carpet you can afford
Like most things in life you do get what you pay for. If a carpet is really cheap there is a reason for this. A carpet may look the same but if the price is considerably cheaper then it is not the same.
10) Show your friends
Your new carpet will make your room look better than ever so be proud of it and show your friends and when you do tell them you got the carpet from Hurren and Glynn

Commercial flooring buying guide
- Commercial flooring needs to be durable and practical, especially in high foot traffic areas.
- Safety flooring is non-slip, hygienic and easy to clean. It is the perfect flooring solution for wetrooms, changing rooms and toilet facilities, where moisture is prevalent and a safety concern. It is particularly suitable for hospitals, schools, care homes and leisure facilities.
- Commercial carpets are more hardy and stain resistant than domestic carpets, while still adding a touch of warmth, comfort and luxury to your business premises. Carpets are a good option for offices, hotels and public areas of bars and restaurants. Stain resistant and durable, they are particularly suitable for high foot traffic areas.
- Carpet tiles come in a range of attractive designs. They can add a truly stunning look to your workplace. They are easy to install, easy to clean and extremely hard wearing. They offer a practical flooring solution; if a tile is damaged it can be easily replaced without having to replace an entire area.
- Commercial vinyl flooring is hard wearing, yet attractive. It’s particularly resistant to scuff marks and castor chair tracks, making it an ideal option for offices, commonways and staff rooms.
Over the years Hurren & Glynn have supplied and installed carpets and flooring to commercial and public sector premises including The Sussex Police, UK Power Networks and EDF.
