Best of Bri­tish

Bri­tain has al­ways been a na­tion of shop­keep­ers. And we all know that di­ver­sity on the high street, with a good mix of in­de­pen­dent re­tail­ers, makes for a more ap­peal­ing shop­ping ex­pe­ri­ence. We’re flood­ing back to butch­ers, bak­ers and spe­cial­ist stores – of­ten the lifeblood of our com­mu­ni­ties – and lo­cal ar­ti­sans are flour­ish­ing. This ap­plies to car­pet re­tail­ers, too.

We buy a new car­pet ev­ery seven years on av­er­age, so need to turn to peo­ple we can trust. The Car­pet Foun­da­tion has 450 in­de­pen­dent re­tail­ers na­tion­wide, most of which are small or fam­ily-owned. Many have been sell­ing car­pet for gen­er­a­tions, driven by pride in their work and a pas­sion for their prod­uct. They of­fer qual­ity car­pets to suit all bud­gets and needs, and help from knowl­edge­able peo­ple who will make sure you buy the car­pet that is right for you.

All Car­pet Foun­da­tion re­tail­ers op­er­ate un­der a Con­sumer Code of Prac­tice ap­proved by the Char­tered Trad­ing Stan­dards In­sti­tute. It guar­an­tees a cer­tain level of ser­vice – you won’t get any nasty sur­prises on the bill and, in the un­likely event of a prob­lem, there is an agreed dis­pute res­o­lu­tion process. They are the only car­pet re­tail­ers in Bri­tain al­lowed to fol­low this Code of Prac­tice and are mon­i­tored to en­sure com­pli­ance.

Shop­ping is one thing we do well in this coun­try, but car­pet is a com­plex and in­fre­quent pur­chase, so choose a lo­cal car­pet spe­cial­ist for great ser­vice, gen­uine ex­per­tise and ac­cess to a wide range of qual­ity car­pets, perfect for a coun­try home.
