Commercial Flooring Norwich Norfolk

Although we have been carrying out commercial flooring & furnishing jobs throughout Norfolk, Suffolk & beyond for many years, we had never carried out a commercial flooring job on this scale.

We came up with a tailor made commercial flooring package for Orchard homes that we made sure would not only match their budget but also their high quality specification and requirements. The tailor made package consisted of high quality flooring for more than 70 rooms!

We laid commercially graded LVT in all hallways and kitchens along with commercially graded gel back carpets in all bedrooms - both styles picked from our extensive range by Orchard homes for this specific commercial flooring job.

LVT is the market leader in commercial floor covering. Giving a modern, unique look whilst staying durable and easy to clean/ maintain. All LVT areas which have to be screaded where done so using ARDEX NA smoothing compound which is widely recognised as the most reliable and trusted within the flooring industry.

In this case, we had to work along side the progression of building work by Orchard homes, flooring each room as soon as they were ready.

Originating from Tudor and Victorian origins, The Oaksmere has achieved a distinct blend of contemporary style across the hotel including its 10 individual boutique bedrooms. When the Oaksmere asked us to help them bring their vision of a new state of the art restaurant, kitchen and lounge area to life, we knew it had to be something unique, whilst carrying their brand of exquisite quality.

We made the tables seen in the restaurant out of Karndean flooring in order to give them a distinct, stylish look whilst knowing that the quality of the materials meant that they were built to last. Once the tables had been cut to the required shape, we then edged the Karndean with a copper finish to add that extra element of class that The Oaksmere is known for. In order to keep with a consistent theme, we also floored the restaurant with Karndean. Karndean is a leading global brand of luxury vinyl flooring, known for it's durability and style.

The lobby features leather models from our Vintage collection, placed to give off a warm, classic feel that's naturally complimented by the impressive, resident Victorian fire place. Due to the existing character featured throughout the hotel, there was no need for dominating ornaments or extras. Instead we added hand picked finishing touches that we felt enhanced the individual features of each room. An example of this would be the white Stags Head located above the fire place in the waiting lobby. Similar to the lobby, the Bar area also featured strong character through the inherant Victorian windows and wooden beams. We felt that simple hanging bulbs and steel, rustic stools would compliment the area nicely without taking the attention away from the existing craftsmanship.

Each of the 10 individual boutique bedrooms feature luxury, British made Hypnos beds, distinct wallpaper and hand picked bedroom furniture that we felt complimented each individual room whilst keeping in line with what The Oaksmere was trying to achieve.

At Benjamin Britton School we achieved a chequer board effect using Karndean LVT in the middle of the hall whilst covering the remainder of the school flooring in a heavy duty wood plank sheet vinyl. We smoothed all floor areas using the highest quality latex screed on the market, ensuring a perfect finish and durability.

Whilst working at Sutherlands Nursing Home, we uplifted and disposed of all old flooring, before preparing the subfloor ready for a popular, heavy duty wood plank vinyl. We ensured the wood pattern was following the same direction throughout the main corridor and all of the rooms that followed. There were purposely no door thresholds or bars to separate each room which resulted in an immaculate, free flowing, natural finish.

We began by uplifting the existing contract wood flooring, refitting the whole hall with 280 sq m of Junkers Clip System Sports Wood Flooring - known for its durability within commercial areas. Our in-house team of wood fitters completed the job over the space of 6 days and evenings.

We worked closely along side Swank Interiors on this exciting project. Lanassir Lawes at Swank Interiors had the creative freedom and vision to come up with some stunning but homely designs for each room in the show home, with the aim of emulating a stylish, modern day family home.

Lannassir managed to achieve her aim by handpicking items from our 40,000 square foot showroom here at John Doe of Diss. Everything in the Roxbury Drive showhome from the flooring, dining furniture and curtains to lighting and beds is straight from our Diss superstore

Roxbury Drive is a stunning new development of mixed housing built by Cloverfield Homes including two, three and four bedroom houses and three bedroom bungalows, all with generous parking and gardens. Roxbury Drive is superbly located on the outskirts of East Harling, a thriving rural village in Norfolk with an extensive range of facilities.

The development has been planned, designed and built in a style sympathetic to its rural location with each property given its own individuality, while retaining the practical needs of today’s lifestyle with generous parking and gardens. All of the houses have been built to the latest Building Regulations for efficiency and environmental impact.



Banham Community Centre came to us for a quality flooring solution that would stand up to the test of time as well as various sporting and leisure activities, whilst still staying inside their budget. After sending out one of our resident John Doe commercial flooring experts to their site, we came up with a bespoke package to meet all of Banham Community Centre’s needs and requirements.

As their original wooden floor; Premium Grade Silver Sport 22mm Solid Beech, had served them so well over the years and had lasted such a long time, they asked if we could find the same floor to replace it with. Fortunately, we were able to do so and went on to replace the old floor that they knew they could trust with an exact match.

Commercial Flooring Norfolk

Due to Banham Community Centre having an underfloor heating system already in place, we had to lay the Premium Grade Silver Sport 22mm Solid Beech flooring on a specialist underfloor heating underlay in order to allow the floor to breathe.

The corridors at Banham Community Centre are the areas that see the most day-to-day traffic. As a result, we needed to source a hard-wearing floor that could meet the challenge head on. We found a robust Flotex carpet, the kind that is used in hospital day rooms, as the perfect solution. This is a gel-back carpet, so even if you spill a glass of red wine all over it, it will just sit on top until wiped away.

Banham Community Centre have a very busy schedule, so we had to plan our work to fit around their day-to-day itinerary. Taking all of this into careful consideration, a working plan was drawn out and agreed on. The whole job was completed over the space of 10 working days [2 weeks] and we sent a total of 6 fitters; 3 carpenters [specialist wood fitters] and 3 of our commercial flooring specialists.

“The Banham Community Centre Committee and I would like to thank you for your generosity and all the staff in the flooring department for their professional workmanship during the refurbishment of the Centre. An excellent job was done by all”
