Order delays

Order lead times for Quickstep

Order lead times for Quickstep

We would like to make you aware of some issues that are arising with lead times for certain products within our flooring range.  Whilst all of our suppliers have worked extremely hard to fulfill orders on a usual timescale, unfortunately there are some delays caused by Covid-19.

We are sad to say that in order to increase production of other ranges Quickstep will not accept any new orders for their new Signature laminate range until November 2020.  Any orders placed before 1/7/20 are secure.

In order to give you as accurate information as possible we will be double checking stock quantities on our live order systems and by telephone.  Please bear with us as there are also some slight delays on deliveries due to restrictions in warehouses that are complying with Covid-19 regulations.  We urge you not to book any installation dates until you are in receipt of the goods.

Our advice would be that if you have chosen a product and it is in stock, order the product as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.  For our local customers we are more than happy to hold orders at our Chester store until they are required.

Thanks for your patience,

Elaine and the team at Living Floors & More

Design Havens for Heroes



Like everyone, we are in awe of the amazing hard work and sacrifice made by all of the key workers during this time of Coronavirus, but in particular we salute those in the NHS and care sectors.

Here at Living Floors we have been thinking of ways that we can give back to those that are at the front line of this crisis.

Well, we are delighted to announce that we will be involved with the amazing ‘Design Havens for Heroes’ project set up by Interior Designer Francesca Rowan-Plowden.

Design Havens for Heroes will bring together a collective of local Interior Designer, Makers and suppliers to create room makeovers for NHS and care staff.  At present, for many of us, our home is our sanctuary, somewhere to reax and enjoy after our busy work day.  This project will ensure that some of those NHS workers have a fabulous space to retreat to and enjoy.

For more information visit Design Havens for Heroes  where you can also find out how to nominate a NHS staff member to receive a room makeover, wouldn’t it be lovely if it could be someone in Chester!

We will keep you posted with progress on this exciting project!

Take care, Elaine

How to choose a wood floor for your kitchen

  • You can absolutely have a real wood floor! It is important that you consider the finish of your wood floor as a kitchen will take a good deal of foot traffic and extra cleaning.  For your kitchen floor we would recommend a hardened (or UV oiled) oil or matt lacquer finish to give good durability.  After installation remember to choose the correct cleaning and maintenance program for your wood floor and stick with it.
  • Consider the additional heat and light in your kitchen if you have bi-fold doors, large patio doors, skylights or velux windows. Additional heat and light can affect the movement of the floor and it is worth considering the effect f sunlight on the finish.  Some high quality laminate floors, such as Quickstep laminate, offer better stability than real wood floors and will be far less affected by sun fading.
  • Think carefully about who lives in your home and how the kitchen is used; is it a gorgeous show kitchen for adults or a busy family kitchen with children and pets? For a busy family home click LVT (luxury vinyl tile) can offer a great solution.   Our Quickstep Livyn and Luvanto vinyl floors offer a warm, durable and waterproof option that make them ideal floors for family kitchen and living areas.
  • When to fit your floor? Unless you are having a free standing kitchen, the best time to install your floor is after the kitchen.  Any floating floor (flooring that sits on an underlay) must not be fitted with a kitchen built over the top as it will adversely affect the expansion and contraction of the wood.  We can provide samples so that Islands and end panels can be adjusted ready to accept the new floor and plinths can be cut to suit the height of your new floor.

We are always on hand to help with any queries at our Chester showroom on 01244 382416

Good luck with your kitchen project,


Choosing a floor… the Living Floors Way

Choosing a floor… the Living Floors Way

For many of our customers the choice of wood, laminate or vinyl floors can be overwhelming.

When you visit our showroom, we will spend as much time with you as required to help you to whittle down the perfect type of floor for your project.

There are two main criteria to consider: what look do you want and what area of the home is the floor being fitted in i.e. do you need a waterproof floor for a kitchen area?
Bring in your plans, mood boards, kitchen worktops, even a table leg and we can have a chat over a coffee. Bring along the family too, the children can play in our play area whilst you look around in peace.

Key points to consider are:

What room is the floor for?
Who lives in your home and what floor traffic can the floor expect?
Is this your forever home or may you be selling in a few years?
What maintenance are you willing to do?

I promise that we are not grilling you with questions but our aim is to help you choose a floor that not only looks great but one that fits in with your lifestyle.

And that is why we still recommend coming in to see us, in real life! Nothing shows a floor off like a large sample panel where you can get a real feel for the finished floor. Get up close and feel the different textured finishes from skip sawn to wire brushed. Particularly for real wood floors, each board is unique and just seeing a small sample will never do the floor justice. Take away a hand sample from our large stock, or we can order samples within a few days, completely free of charge!

Should you wish we can then arrange a home visit where we can bring the large sample panels so that you can see the wood in your own home. These are just some of the reasons why we think it is vital that you still come and see us and the floors in real life. Come visit us between 8.30am – 5pm in the week and 9am – 4pm on Saturdays.

New Ted Todd stand at Chester

New Ted Todd stand at Chester

We are so excited to see the transformation of our Ted Todd stands at Chester!

The new crisp white stands are the perfect foil for all the fabulous new samples. White really enables you to see the true colour tones of the wood, which is so important when you are comparing products.

There are some fabulous new floors including the brand new Project Herringbone range and the new wide boards within the Warehouse range.

Chester is now the place to come and view the Ted Todd range with an increased number of display panels meaning that there is plenty of goregous floor to choose from the super contemporary to aged, rustic oak.

We also have a great stash of hand samples to take away so you can add to your mood boards at home!
