Sunderland Carpet Centre is an independent family business and has been providing quality carpets and flooring with unequalled service in the North East since 1986. Main dealers for many prestigious brands, our showroom boasts a magnificent display of real wood flooring, sitting among an extensive list of the finest carpet and flooring suppliers in the industry today.

As well as traditional boards, a bespoke finishing and colouring service is available using blocks, panels and bespoke patterns available in a wide selection of designs and finishes, all installed and finished on site by our professionally trained in-house installers.For situations where real wood is unsuitable, “and there can be many “ we offer a wide range of sheet vinyl, laminate flooring and designer tiles, having recently installed a brand new Amtico studio displaying the entire new collections including the newly re-launched Uniquely Amtico and Spacia brands.

Our store has a fantastic selection of the latest innovations in carpet styles and fibres, many stocked in our own warehouse, Our partnership with American carpet company Nourison enables us offer the very best woven carpets made today, many ranges hand carved.

We have a dedicated in-store rug department, the largest in the area offering a wide selection of traditional handmade Oriental rugs and the latest contemporary designs. We have been selling our rugs online since 2002 as Rug Store NE and are now one of the largest rug internet sites in the UK. We believe that we give our customers better value for money than any other Carpet or Flooring retailer in the area. We are passionate about our craft and strive to be the very best at what we do, ensuring you will still be enjoying your floor long after you have forgotten how much it cost.


Our fitters are trained to the highest possible standard in all aspects of floor preparation and installation, we were the first carpet fitters in the North East to gain Masterfitter status with the NICF, winning the regional heats of Fitter of the Year in two consecutive years and representing the UK Fitting team in Europe.

Our fitters have attended bespoke training courses for Crucial Trading Plant Fibre, sub floor preparation, Amtico, advanced Karndean and Polyflor designer flooring. We are members of the The British Wood Flooring Association and our fitters have completed wood installations courses at FITA training centres and advanced bespoke
parquet installation sanding and finishing courses with the BWFA.

All our fitting teams are employed by Sunderland Carpet Centre, we feel this puts more emphasis on the quality of the installation and less on the time it takes to install. We are continually investing in training programmes to ensure we are delivering the best installation service to our customers.
