We wanted to send out a massive thank you to all those who supported us with the charity barn dance that took place earlier in October! For those who don’t know, our MD Mandy Risso was recently appointed a trustee of the charity For-Ethiopia and is a long-standing member of the Avon Business Club. In a bid to raise money for For-Ethiopia, we opened the doors and hosted our very own barn dance with a live band Jiggerty Band.
Renovating your home or workspace can be an exciting time and laying out a new floor is a fantastic way to breathe new life into a room. Whilst on the subject of breathing, it is also important to recognise the impact that specific types of flooring have on those who suffer from allergies and have the know-how to combat that.
Indoor allergy triggers can include anything from dust mites, mould, pollen trodden in from outside and pet hair to name but a few of the more common sensitivities.
Selecting the right supplier or contractor for your flooring jobs can make or break an office revamping experience. These projects need to be completed according to the timescales you specify and to a very high standard.
We understand that whilst a supplier may seem that he knows what he is doing and will give you a convincing sales pitch, we believe it is so important to ask questions before any paperwork is signed to ensure you are getting exactly what you want and what you pay for.
Without being in the interior design trade, it can be tough to know what questions to ask which is why we’ve compiled a set of questions that will benefit you and keep your contractor on their toes!
The perfect flooring for your hotel or B&B has to be several things; durable, safe, attractive but most of all, cost-effective. With high levels of footfall (including luggage) every single day, the floor needs to be appropriate and safe for its job but still provide that wow factor that keeps people staying with you time and time again.
There are benefits and limitations to every type of floor which will be dependent on what you are trying to achieve with your hotel or B&B. Bedrooms, bathrooms, corridors and dining areas will all need different considerations.
In environments such as care homes and hospices, the right choice of flooring is essential for the residents’ well-being and quality of life.
When choosing flooring for these unique environments, there are several factors that must be considered, some of which are often overlooked when faced with tight budgets.
In order to create the best possible environment for those living there, here are our top considerations when choosing to floor for care environments to ensure you make the best choice regardless of your budget.

Whilst most of us slowed down as December approached, patiently waiting for the Christmas break, there was no rest for our MD, Mandy Risso.
Just one year on from taking on the New York Marathon (and just 3 years on from putting on a pair of running shoes!), Mandy was back at it again, this time taking on the Great Ethiopian Run 2017 on the 18th November; a gruelling 10k course in high temperatures and altitude.
Through her efforts, Mandy raised just over £1,200, smashing her original target of £1,000! Find out more about the run and the causes Mandy supported through her fundraising in our latest blog post.
