A good start to the year

After two weeks well deserved break we opened our doors again on the 3rd of January, since then we have been flat out which for January is a bit of a shock, during the Christmas break my Sister gave birth to a little girl called Elsie, she is a pretty little one ,fortunately she looks nothing like her parents or her uncle for that matter. Maybe once she’s started walking we can teach her how to fit Carpets, we need the staff. We are not holding a sale as I don’t believe on inflating my prices only to reduce them at sale time, I give my best prices all year round backed up by our second to none service which comes free of charge, here are some photos of some recent installations and a picture of blackberry hills latest staff member






Crazy Carpet Christmas

yes this year as always everybody wants new Carpet and Flooring for Christmas, Craig and myself are rushing about trying too get Two Months work completed in one month, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of my customers for their business and support this year and to wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy new year, I know it’s early yet but I don’t anticipate having time over the next two weeks. I’ll try to keep in touch but for now here are some photos of installations from the past week and some Christmassy shots of the showroom












A beautiful Carpet in a beautiful Barn conversion

Today we fitted a lovely soft feel saxony carpet into a Lounge area of a Barn Conversion in Market Harborough, Leicestershire, the finished product looked great. We still have some fitting spaces available before Christmas but you’ll have to be quick , also there a lot of new products arriving in the showroom why not pop in for a browse.

Lounge Carpet

Winters coming

If you believe all the papers we are in for a harsh winter so its time to pop into your local Carpet Showroom to purchase that warm and comfortable Carpet you’ve been promising yourself while we can still get the van to your home to install it, unfortunately they don’t make jet skis big enough to carry Carpets, sorry thats enough nonsense for one day.


First I installed some Fells Snowdon Carpet onto a Hall, Stairs and Landing in Little Bowden then I moved onto Great Bowden to install Some Penthouse Shoreline Carpet into a Lounge.


I installed some Fells Snowdon Carpet throughout a whole Flat, this product is good value and looks great on the floor.


I started the day at Kibworth Beauchamp Installing Some Bedford cord Carpet into a Conservatory before moving onto Lubenham to fit some Cushion floor into two bathrooms after repairing the subfloors then I measured three jobs.


Craig and myself Installed some Clarendon Twist into a large lounge in Desborough before driving over to Leicester to view the Y.M.C.A  Bar area which we will be installing in a couple of weeks. I then measured another three jobs on the way back.


I went to Tur Langton to install a Cushionfloor into a Bathroom while Craig went to Little Bowden to Stick the gripper rods and door plates at Bungalow, we then met on the Southern Estate in Harborough to install some Fells Serendipity Carpet onto a open plan wrap around stairs and Bedroom, then we went back to the bungalow in Little Bowden to install Some Fells Saxon King Carpet into a Lounge, Diner and Hallway, that was a big day to end the week.


I didn’t  have time to sit down all day it was a fantastic day in the shop, lots of measures booked and samples lent out


today has been a bit slow but the weather probably hasn’t helped but at least I’ve had time to catch up with some paperwork.

see you all next week


No signs of it slowing down

Another extremely busy week


Craig and myself started the week in Foxton in a pretty cottage we installed some Fells Montrose onto a Hall, Stairs, Landing, Bedroom and Dressing Room this is a really good value carpet it looks fantastic on the floor.


Craig installed some more Fells Montrose into a Lounge, Study, Hall, Landing and open plan Stairs in a Dorma Bungalow in Market Hartborough while i covered the showroom, another very happy customer.


I was back at Dingley Hall first installing some Marrakesh twist into a En Suite this Carpet is made of 100 % Polypropylene but feels like Wool. Then i moved on to Lubenham to install some Penthouse Vermont.


Matt and myself went over to East Midlands airport  to install Carpet into some more Bedrooms at a Hotel.
