Carpets, Laminates and Karndean Flooring in Orpington | Supply and Installation

BR Flooring is the best-known independent supplier of carpets and flooring with property owners in Orpington, which is just a short drive from our Petts Wood and Eltham branches. Most visits received at our showroom are from prospective clients starting a renovation, replacing old flooring or investing into an extension. Some struggle to find carpets, laminate flooring or hardwood flooring to suit their properties; others might not know enough about the benefits of Amtico flooring or Karndean flooring, our premium, luxury vinyl flooring ranges.

Our team is always on hand to help you on a visit to either of our showrooms, but this page provides a rough buying guide for those who like to arrive suitably informed.

Should you require further advice when you reach your nearest outlet, we will have it available. Customers from Orpington laud our levels of customer service. Please keep in mind that we don’t just supply carpets, laminate flooring and hardwood. Like all reputable flooring companies, we also offer a free estimating, measuring and fitting service within a wide radius of our two popular showrooms.

We can also measure, quote and fit your preferred choice of Amtico flooring or Karndean flooring. Here are some of the key considerations when choosing carpet or flooring for your Orpington home:


All carpets andall flooring types provide a different aesthetic. Which one is best seems subjective, but many prefer carpets because they offer the warm and inviting feel people like to cultivate in bedrooms and living rooms. Laminate flooring, Amtico flooring and Karndean flooring, on the other hand, have clean and modern looks. This makes them ideally suited to hallways, to kitchens and to bathrooms but obviously, this isn’t a fixed rule.

Beware of ordering carpets and vinyl flooring online without seeing samples first. Products look slightly different online due to lighting and the way the photographer takes the pictures. Come see what we have on offer in a real-life environment. Orpington customers can find the traditional and contemporary flooring they need at either of our two showrooms. We’re a much safer bet than using online flooring companies.


If you’re looking for something that’s durable, you can’t beat hardwood flooring. What’s more, hardwood flooring has unique aesthetics and characteristics, and home owners in the Orpington area usually find that it looks better with ageing. This level of character isn’t possible in alternative flooring products such as laminate flooring. This makes hardwood the best long-term investment but also the most expensive.

If wood flooring is slightly out of your price range, we have carpets, Amtico flooring and Karndean flooring available as well as laminate flooring. Each offers a different look and feel but all have long-term durability in mind.


Most of our Orpington customers won’t want to spend time maintaining carpets or hardwood flooring. For high traffic areas, pick something with fewer maintenance requirements like wipe-clean laminate flooring, or luxury vinyl flooring e.g Amtico and Karndean products if you want to opt for a luxury vinyl. Densely packed, off-white cut pile carpets also require minimum care but, in kitchens and bathrooms, there’s a high likelihood of liquid spilling onto the floor.

This creates a heightened risk of staining so choose Amtico flooring or Karndean flooring for kitchens and bathroom spaces, which clean and wipe easily following a spillage. For low traffic areas, like bedrooms, deep pile carpets in rich and luxurious shades are much more appropriate and lower in maintenance.

Good flooring companies will always advise you on the most suitable low-maintenance choice for your Orpington home.


It’s important to keep in to a budget when shopping for carpets, vinyl flooring laminate flooring and hardwood flooring. Laminate flooring and some lines from Amtico and Karndean sit at the cheaper end of the price spectrum whereas hardwood flooring and top-of-the-range carpets are premium options that can push your budget to the limit. The cost of carpets can vary significantly with patterned carpets being higher than budget designs for low-traffic areas.

Our Orpington customers should compare our options and consider whether the extra cost for a premium product is worthwhile or not.
