Julie Schwer

Julie is a homeowner based in Felixstowe, Suffolk, who first got in touch with our customer service team regarding the stairs in her hallway along with the carpets and flooring required for the landing. We were invited to her home to assess how we could create a statement piece for the entrance to house so it would create more of a ‘wow’ factor and add instant character to the space.

Elsewhere, Julie requested a plain, neutral carpet for both the stairs and the landing to replace the existing carpet so it would fully complement the surrounding décor. The hallway was a high traffic area and as such had to be both hardwearing and waterproof so it could withstand long term use effectively while maintaining its appearance.

Our plan of action

Based on Julie’s requests and layout of the property, we suggested a number of helpful solutions that combined both practicality and style for her home.

Once the changes had been agreed upon, our installation team completed the job across two days. Firstly, we recommended a vinyl floor covering for the hallway for which Julie picked out a funky, yet traditional tile design. As the subfloors were floorboards, we recommended plywood was added to create a smoother finish. This stage took place over the first day, before we returned to lay the vinyl flooring 24 hours later.

We also recommended new underlay, gripper rods and carpet were used for both the stairs and landing areas. This preparation ensured the carpet could then be installed to British Standard to ensure a smooth, special finish.
