Rapport Interiors

Carpets & Flooring

As well as interior design and re-upholstery, Rapport Interiors has an in-depth knowledge of all aspects of floor coverings, including traditional and natural fibre carpets, luxury vinyl tiles and wood floors. Steve Meredith has more than 35 years of specialist experience in this area and gives sound, technical advice on practical and durability issues as well as offering a wide range of flooring designs and colours. We also aim to provide excellent value for money, competing comfortably with the larger national chains.

We regularly work with insurance companies, and although nowadays you may be steered towards using specific retailers, we suggest you contact us first should you need to make an insurance claim for your flooring. We had plenty of experience both on behalf of our customers and ourselves in 2007! Mike Dix, our ‘resident’ carpet fitter, is extremely experienced and efficient. Mike served his apprenticeship in 1960, and is now joined by his son Ian, to whom he is passing on a life-time of skill and knowledge.

Carpet

We stock sample ranges from a wealth of manufacturers, but many of our mainstay suppliers are companies who still manufacture in Britain many nearby in Kidderminster – the Worcestershire town well known as founding the modern carpet industry. Many of these companies still source their raw materials within the UK, so more often than not you are buying an entirely British product.

Natural Fibre

Sisal, Seagrass, Coir and the many similar combinations, plus some heavily- textured wools, come under the heading of natural fibre. These styles of carpets have to be treated quite differently to traditional woven carpets in the way they are installed and need specialist handling. Today, there are several importers of natural fibre carpets and we deal only with those who provide consistent quality and competitive prices.

Karndean

This luxury, vinyl tile-style, flooring for us, stands way ahead of its competitors. It’s an excellent surface to use where real wood, real stone, or real ceramic may not be practical. Warm, easy to maintain and professionally fitted, it looks fantastic. We stock samples of the complete Karndean range and an initial consultation in our showroom will include advice on the most appropriate style for your needs and budget. We are fortunate to have Karndean’s UK showroom less than ten miles away, just outside Evesham and we often recommend that customers visit their 500 sq metre display area, to see just how good large areas of Karndean looks when fitted. You can visit their website below.

Wood

Our wood flooring includes real wood engineered boards and solid wood tongue and groove. We can offer any species of wood including: walnut; merbau; cherry; beech; oak and pine. The main flooring used in and around the Cotswolds tends to be traditional oak. Again we source our products from several importers as well as buying direct from British mills. Buying direct enables us to specify particular finishes, so if you want your engineered board to look like a rustic solid board rather than an over engineered and finished product we can do it. As with many products, they’re only as good as the person who lays them and we have a dedicated carpenter and wood floor fitter who has many years of experience in wood floor fitting.

We also offer a wood floor sanding and re-finishing service. So if you have an existing wood floor that needs some TLC, we can help. Whether it’s an original hallway, library, sports hall or dance floor, our expert finisher has 15 years experience in this area.

Custom Rugs

With many customers now opting for hard-floorings in their homes, we can help 'soften' these surfaces with a custom-made rug or runner, in the colour, design and material of your choice. Using companies such as Crucial Trading, Alternative Flooring and Roger Oates, we can create amazing bordered rugs and runners in wool and sisal to virtually any size.
