With the encouraging news that stamp duty is now frozen on property valued up to £500k until March 2021, Designer Contracts, the UK’s largest flooring contractor, is ready to help its customers with the predicted rush from buyers looking for a swift purchase.

Carefully curated furniture, lighting, curtain and blind packs have been developed to make furnishing a house easier than ever – available at a time when many may prefer a one-stop-shop option – rather than venturing out into the high street.

The packs are particularly beneficial to first-time buyers and landlords who may require a turnkey solution.

Furniture packs consist of three selections depending on preference and budget – ‘Choice’, ‘Ideal’ and ‘Supreme’ with each covering a range of living, dining and bedroom furniture – quickly transforming a house into a home.

Lighting packs include ‘Select’ ‘Supreme’ and ‘Glow’. Select is a value package with a variety of elegant and contemporary lighting essentials, while Supreme is a luxurious package of hand-picked, prestigious fixtures and fittings. Glow includes an assortment of colourful, cheery designs – perfect for children’s playrooms or bedrooms.

With its own curtain and blind making facility, the company also provides a wide-selection of bespoke window dressings, made and fitted ahead of completion – and often more cost-efficient than buying from the high street.

Said Designer Contracts md, Peter Kelsey: “We’ve tried to think of everything – everything a buyer may need when furnishing a new home. The packs have been an incredibly successful addition to our floorcoverings and we feel that now more than ever people will want to move swiftly without the hassle of measuring windows and waiting on lengthy new furniture lead times.

“We have also bolstered our stock levels to over £2 million, ensuring we can meet the predicted increased demand – we are able to deliver and fit a huge selection quickly!”

Designer Contracts operates across 15 regional outlets throughout the UK and is now fully compliant with the UK government guidelines on managing the risk of Covid 19 – and has been certified as a ‘Covid Safe’ employer.
