Designer Contracts – the UK’s largest flooring contractor has launched new ranges into its extensive product portfolio.

As carpet remains a staple flooring option for the home in 2016, the company has unveiled a number of new flooring collections. The exciting new products include Castle Twist, an affordable and great looking wool-rich range crafted from 50% wool and 50% polypropylene that comes in six traditional colourways.

Made from 100% stain resistant polypropylene are Symphony, Elements and Riviera. All of these ranges are naturally stain resistant and bleach cleanable, making them an ideal choice for family living and pet owners. Symphony is an affordable

structured loop pile range in four neutral shades and Elements, a traditional twist with a wool look and feel, comes in 10 stylish colours.

Saxony carpets continue to grow in popularity and as the long luxurious pile ranges take the retail market by storm, huge volumes are now being sold when offered in the new build market. As a result, the company has updated and relaunched New Sumptuous, which now comes in seven exciting contemporary tones including more greys which are more popular than ever. A flooring range without a selection of greys is almost considered outdated!

Also available is Riviera, another plush Saxony which is available in eight modern shades. With a luxurious feeling underfoot and distinctive styling these highly fashionable luxury pile ranges are an ideal choice for all around the home.

Peter Kelsey, md of Designer Contracts said: “We have established relationships with most major flooring manufacturers. This means we have access to the most up to date ranges and are always aware of new and innovative products, often in advance of them being introduced to the industry.”

Meanwhile, in high traffic areas, such as hallways and kitchens, luxury vinyl tiles, fashionable laminates and vinyl continue to grow in popularity. Recently relaunched and re-coloured is Jupiter, an affordable domestic sheet vinyl range. With an R10 slip resistant rating, it comes in 15 matt designs, including wood effect, traditional classic tiles and modern plain and linear patterns.

The company’s Hometex range is an exclusive within the UK. This slip resistant, entry level, felt-back sheet vinyl features a mixed collection of 11 colourways in a natural look and feel, including mosaic and plain embossed designs.

Also new to the company’s portfolio are various ranges from the Gerflor collection including Griptex, a warm and comfortable vinyl flooring with a unique GFT polyester textile backing, specifically designed for housing and renovation. This range also meets HSE guidelines for installations that require additional criteria to be met.

Designer Contract’s felt-back vinyl ranges are more tolerant of minor subfloor imperfections and more resistant to moisture. They are less likely to bubble which means that service issues can be greatly reduced which contributes towards the five star rating that builders are striving to achieve and maintain.

Ideal for use in healthcare, education, corporate, hospitality and retail environments, the company offers Concept Décor and Woods, a range of practical commercial vinyls that are available in two designs. Décor includes 12 colours and Woods 15.

Said Peter: “As the leading supplier of floorcoverings to the new build sector, it is important that we stay in touch with changing consumer trends in order to ensure that we, in turn, provide our customers with the very latest products.”
