Martin King Carpets and Flooring

Firstly thank you for finding my website and taking the time to read about my profession. Let me introduce myself- I’m Martin King.

The skills that I have developed throughout my career, have enabled me to build upon a sound ethos comprised of honesty, reliability and pride, to ensure my customers trust me and feel confident that I will offer them a good service. Just contact me & I will be only too pleased to try and help you.

Carpet Supply


Supplying the best carpets to suit your requirements. Whether that be a stainless man-made carpet, a synthetic fibre or 100% wool, depending on your budget and requirements we can work together to find you your perfect carpet for the right price.

Carpet Measuring


Accurate measurements to find out exactly how much carpet you need and no more. Knowing how much carpet you need is an art, finding sections to use for stairs, landings that would have gone unused may mean you get something for nothing... thats not something you can say now very often.

Carpet Supply


Fitting carpets is my main job and skill, creating seamless carpets fitted to the highest standards to fit to any shape or size. Laying a carpet seems a simple proposition, but getting it perfect, in usually one peice is where the skill comes in. Around doors, stairs and fittings is where you can tell that this is my passion.

Carpet Samples


Samples are integral in finding your correct carpet. Matching your carpet against other items in your room is paramount and there is no better way than looking through samples of carpets in that room. I have all the latest brand samples available and for anything that I do not currently have I can get.

Vinyl Fitting


This flooring solution is perfect for bathrooms and kitchen. Easy to clean up, providing good grip in wet and humid conditions vinyl is a perfect solution for those rooms that are causing you issues.

Carpet Repairs


Carpet had a problem? Let me see if it can be repaired. A new carpet is not always the best solution, sometimes patching up a carpet you already own works out better. This is always on a case by case basis. Either way the best resolution is what I suggest.

Carpet Advice


Always available to advise on any flooring solutions. Whether you need to find out what would be best, what can be done, what needs to be done I am available to advise you for with the best advice to suit you.

Carpet Re-fitting


Has the carpet started pulling up? After a number of years existing carpet might need a bit of streching or stairs refitted due to wear.

I take pride in my work. All of the photos on this site are of my work. There is no job too big, too small, too complicated. Carpet fitting is not only my job but also my passion.
