In the spotlight


Choosing the flooring is one of the bigger decisions you need to make when building a new home. And while many people are opting for hard surfaces, such as timber, tiles and concrete, there is still a need for visual warmth.

A natural-fibre rug from Advance Flooring not only sets off a beautiful wood or polished concrete floor, it also helps define your seating and dining areas.

Genuine sisal and coir rugs can be custom made to your specific size, colour and design requirements. This means you can choose a border or binding to complement your furnishings. The range of options includes more than 230 different patterns and weaves, and more than 190 borders and bindings made from fabrics, such as jute, cotton, leather and tapestry.

Advance Flooring's natural fibre rugs offer further benefits. They bring warmth and texture to a room, and contribute to noise reduction. They are also designed to be hard-wearing and slip-resistant – for safety purposes, each rug comes with an anti-slip underlay pad. In addition, as they are static-free, the rugs attract minimal dust and dirt, making them easy to care for.

The company says every Advance Flooring product is subjected to a nine-point quality inspection before it leaves the factory. This checks the quality of the yarn structure, knots and colour consistency.


Other flooring products from Advance Flooring include Artisan cowhide rugs and leather floor tiles. The tiles come in a range of colours to suit any décor. As well as providing an attractive and hardwearing surface, they also enhance walls, reception areas and executive desks.

Another service offered by the company is carpet and rug binding.

Advance Flooring works with designers and architects, and has a nationwide network of stockists and installers.
