As well as all the major categories of flooring for your Berkhamsted home, a range of customizable accessories are available to make sure you get exactly the look you want.

Fitted matwell

A fitted matwell allows a mat to be fitted so that it is flush with the floor around it. This is good idea for flooring which gets a lot of foot traffic, as there is no trip hazard. One good option is a PVC backed coir inset door mat, as it fits right up to the edge of the matwell.


Carpet whipping is a way of edging/binding a carpet remnant, by over-stitching wool into the carpet edge to create a finished piece. With every new carpet fitted there will be remnants that could be turned into rugs to save you money by matching them to your existing new carpets.

Stair Rods

A stair rod or carpet rod, is an ornamental decorative hardware item used to hold carpeting in place on steps. The rod is secured on top of the carpet in the angle formed between the tread of one step and the riser of the next. The rods are held in place by two brackets and typically equipped with a decorative finial on one or both ends. Traditionally, stair rods were used to hold a carpet runner in place on stairs, but with superior carpet installation techniques and more rigid safety standards today, stair rods serve primarily a decorative purpose.


A stair nosing usually overhangs the stair riser by about 1 inch. A stair nosing makes each step wider and is a safe way to finish your wood or laminate flooring on your staircase, by hiding the edges of the wood flooring, where the two wood floors meet.

These accessories are the perfect complement to the flooring in your Berkhamstead home.
