As you can see from the pictures with limited time and funds we have managed to turn what was once an Oily Motorhome Garage into a smart Showroom that we can be proud of. From the beginning we have wanted to make sure that our showroom stays airy and uncluttered but still able to provide a good range of Carpets and Flooring.

We opened in June 2015 and thanks to our wholesalers were able to fill this new space with a mountain of sample books so that we were able to get our doors open as soon as possible. We were then lucky enough to be accepted by ACG, Associated Carpet Group, which resulted in an influx of Carpet and Flooring manufactures wanting us to supply their products.

Since then, due to our smart showroom, great location and story we have had a continuous interest from new Carpet and Flooring suppliers and are therefore constantly expanding and bringing in new brands. Keep popping back to see us or follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to see what’s new!


Alfords Carpets and Flooring is run by Mark Alford who has been a self-employed carpet and flooring fitter for 20 years, subcontracted by many local companies and employed as the main fitter for the long established and trusted name, Oliver’s and Son of Helston. Therefore he has built up a reputation for being a high quality fitter with an eye for detail and taking pride in every job he does, large or small.

After being in the trade for so many years he decided to open a Carpet and Flooring Showroom of his own, along with his wife, bringing into it the high standard of fitting he has learnt and lived by through his career, as well as a professional and friendly service. They are not salesman and don’t pretend to be, you just get experienced and honest advice on what they feel is best for you.
