The floors also won’t expand or contract under the normal conditions that would cause other floors to do so; as COREtec Plus is inert and dimensionally stable. This means you can safely fit a COREtec Plus floor in a room which will be bathed in sunlight all day long, without having to worry about it affecting the floor.

Further, COREtec Plus never needs expansion strips in large rooms. Each COREtec Plus plank has an attached cork underlay for a quieter, warmer vinyl floor that is naturally resistant to odour causing mould and mildew.

The technology is such that it has the capability to excel in both residential and commercial usage. It is as stylish and functional in both a family home, handling the day to day wear and tear of family life, or in a large office space, restaurant or any area with vast amounts of footfall.

Using Laminate on the Walls

laminate flooring used on wall

Sometimes the very best ideas are right under our noses and we aren’t even aware of it. This can even be true of home DIY and style trends. In this case, the latest trend isn’t just under your nose, it’s under your feet! This latest trend is laminate flooring! Hardly revolutionary, right? But what if we do something other than use laminate flooring as a floor? Let’s try using laminate flooring on the wall!

Honestly, we’ve not lost our minds. It may have been a long winter here in Glasgow but the cabin fever at Modish Furnishing hasn’t quite set in yet! We see laminate flooring on the walls as not only a viable alternative to traditional methods, but a stylish one too.

Can I use Laminate Flooring on the wall?

Laminate is an excellent DIY wall solution as it gives you the chance to really get those creative juices flowing. Laminate is a terrific way to design your own feature wall. With so much choice, you have complete control over its style, allowing you to create a contrast effect that really stands out.

Other great uses include the use of laminates to enhance wall pockets in the home. These pockets can be used for photos, vases or other decorative means. By using laminates in them, you can really highlight the shadows and make them stand out as part of your home décor.

laminates in wall indent shelf

We’ve written before about how great laminate is on the floor, mainly down to how easy it is to install and maintain. As well as this, you can pick up laminate flooring relatively cheaply compared to its hardwood or carpet counterparts. These advantages are retained whether you’re using laminates on the floor or on the walls.

Installing Laminate Flooring on the Walls

Installation on a wall is swift and easy. It also requires very little maintenance after its initial fitting. Laminates are made to be durable and tough, able to easily handle the wear and tear of people walking on them all day every day. This means your new laminate walls will be highly resistant to scratches and scuffs; and should they get dirty, they’re easy enough to wipe.

Using wood on the walls was a popular trend around the middle of the 20th century. Like so many trends, it seems it’s come back around. The difference this time is the volume of choice we are now afforded with, and the endless style ideas we can find online. Using laminates on the floor is a trend with so many advantages. We think this time the trend is here to stay.

When searching for good quality carpet at a reasonable price, it’s quite easy to come unstuck. After all, many retailers slap massive price tags on their big brand carpets. Throw in the cost of delivery and fitting and you’re looking at remortgaging the house just to get a new carpet.

Carpets with Star Quality

Invictus Carpets Logo

Past customers of Invictus Carpets are well aware of the top quality carpets Associated Weavers have created over the years. Many of our carpet customers throughout Glasgow can attest to their quality and durability. The company have outdone themselves once again though, and their new constellation-themed range of carpets is in another galaxy to the competition. In this blog, we’ll look at these new carpets, each named after one of the constellations in the night sky: Sirius, Canopus, Orion, Pegasus, Scorpius and Perseus.

Invictus say these new carpets are here to show you what heavenly comfort feels like. Such a claim sounds outlandish, but the unique combination of texture, body, softness and lustre makes for an outstandingly soft and comfortable carpet.

Variety isn’t forgotten with the new range either. You are able to choose from a varied palette of 14 different colours.

New Yarn

Befitting of a new range, Invictus has developed new yarn technology into the mix. Developed as collaboration with yarn producers around the world, the new iVinci technology has made its way to this range of carpets. This new generation of Solution Dyed Olefin yarns (SDO) delivers superior softness, lustre, bulk and is brutally resistant to stains.

These unique yarns were created using state-of-the-art extrusion methods and employing experts in the fields of chemistry and technology. The result of the exhaustive process is that iVinci was born. The high number and unique shape of the polyolefin filaments both contribute to the outstanding qualities of the new yarn.

Invictus Carpet in Glasgow

Modish Furnishing is a premier supplier of Invictus Carpets and offer free measuring and fitting on ALL Invictus carpets. Such luxury doesn’t normally come at this fantastic a price. Currently, we have the Invictus Sirius carpet available to view (and feel!) in our showroom, with each of the other carpets in the range available to order.

We are able to offer the Sirius range from as little as £20 per square meter, a huge saving on the normal price of around £37.99 per square meter. We provide carpets to Glasgow and throughout the central belt, just give us a call on 0141 429 3541 and we can arrange a free measure!

Carpet Wear and Tear Protection

Invictus means invincible, and that’s what this carpet is designed to be. Each Invictus carpet comes with a 20 year wear warranty, a 20 year stain warranty and is bleach cleanable. No more worrying about ruining your new carpet. With such protection you can afford to relax and not worry about potential spills and stains damaging your new carpet.

The wear guarantee guards against excessive fibre loss from regular use. However, these carpets are created so strongly, and crafted so meticulously that this shouldn’t be an issue! So unless you’ve got a pet rhinoceros, there’s little chance of the Invictus’ thick Saxony pile being impacted by day to day use!

Therefore, we believe this is reason enough to invest in your home’s future by purchasing a new carpet. Without this kind of protection, you could be met with a large bill at any moment; all it takes is one spill! With Invictus and the protection they offer, you are essentially protecting yourself from any unwanted financial surprises in the future.

Contact Modish Furnishing today to arrange a free measure! We also offer a free fitting service to match. Call us on 0141 429 3541 to speak to our carpet experts. Your new Invictus carpet is only a phone call away.

Carpet for Christmas?

isense and invictus carpets in glasgow
Modish Furnishing’s Carpet Showroom in Glasgow

Some people think it’s far too late in the year to be considering buying a carpet. However, we disagree. With such great prices across our carpet showroom in Glasgow, it’s an excellent time to buy a new carpet!

What do you want for Christmas? A nice trip abroad? A new watch? A good pair of socks? How about some peace and quiet? Or time to relax after the tough graft of 2017?

Let’s face it, at Christmas time, what we all want to do is simply rest after a long, hard year. That, and eat our own bodyweight in chocolate!

It can be tough to really relax at Christmas time though, there’s an awful lot going on. Between presents, family and of course, the all important Christmas dinner. It can be difficult to find a moment to yourself.

free carpet fitting in glasgow
Wide selection of carpet at Modish Furnishing

With this in mind, it makes it extra important to have an environment of peaceful tranquillity. So that when you do find a moment to turn the engine off and unwind, you make the most of it. To ensure your home is geared to be your very own calming utopia, you’re going to want to make sure it feels as homely as possible.

New Carpet from the Experts in Glasgow

We’d recommend doing that by investing in a brand new carpet. Nothing helps you relax quite like the recognisable scent of a fresh carpet. The feel of its thick, luscious fibres underfoot is a joy to behold. There’s a reason why people often use the cliché “it’s like walking on air” to describe the feel of a fresh new carpet. There’s really nothing else like it.

Invictus Carpets in Glasgow – with free fitting

Carpet with a Shimmering Twist

Invictus Carpet Glasgow Sparkle
Invictus Carpet

It might come as a great surprise to many of you, but a new carpet can do wonders for the winter home. Here, we take a look at the brand new Invictus Centaurus range. This range is available at our Glasgow showroom

Invictus Carpet in Glasgow

Winter is quickly rolling in. We’re beginning to spend more time indoors in the reassuring warmth and comfort of our own homes. We Brits love a cozy night on the sofa in our dressing gowns and joggers. It keeps us well away from the howling gales and piercingly cold Winter rain.

During the cold, dark months of the British winter, keeping your spirits up in a nice warm home is the goal. So what better time to treat yourself to a brand new carpet? Something that feels welcoming and reassuring underfoot. Something to look forward to getting home to while you’re sat in the office, punching away at your keyboard all day.

Invictus Centaurus Glasgow
Invictus Carpet Glasgow

We have just the carpet for you! Brand new into our showroom, the stunning Invictus Centaurus range! This all new carpet range is one of Invictus best ever and the perfect winter warmer for the Great British home!

Invictus Centaurus Carpet in 9 Colours

This carpet is available in nine distinct and unique tones ranging from cool to warm. It also features all of the outstanding attributes we’d expect of an Invictus carpet. For starters, it’s made from the latest polypropylene technology, making the carpet fibres 100% stain resistant. This means there’s no need to worry about your glass of wine, cup of coffee or messy kids!

If a stain resistant guarantee still doesn’t leave you convinced, there’s a 20 year wear and stain warranty thrown in to boot. That means you’re covered for the next two decades! It includes cover against the calamities and wear and tear of the modern home. We think that’s a pretty great deal!

One of the main benefits of polypropylene carpets over traditional, natural fibres is the fact that they are so easy to maintain. The Invictus Centaurus is fully bleach cleanable, something that would be unthinkable when trying to clean a natural thread carpet.

Deep Saxony Pile – Invictus Centaurus

Its 15mm deep Saxony pile means your toes will feel as though you’re walking on air as the soft, luxurious fibres slip between them. Picture waking up on a cold morning and getting out of bed to this. Surely a much more appealing prospect than your bare feet on a cold, hard laminate or wood floor?

However, we’ve not yet come to the most spectacular thing about this new carpet range. What really sets this carpet apart from the rest is the beautiful sparkling shimmer running through it. Not enough to blind your guests, but sufficient enough to give the carpet a little something extra. Without verging into the realm of looking tacky!

This luxurious shine is almost impossible to capture on camera, so we highly recommend coming down to see it with your own eyes!

How to clean your Laminate Flooring

Laminate flooring is wonderful. We’re huge fans of it here at Modish Furnishing, and our customers are too.  Opting for a laminate floor in your home comes with a variety of different benefits. We’ve spoken about those advantages before in the blog, so we won’t repeat ourselves here, but today we’re looking at maintaining your new laminate floor.

Cleaning and maintaining your laminate floor may not be as straightforward as you thought: it’s not as simple as wiping it down with a wet mop. Excess amounts of water on laminate flooring can cause the laminate to warp, ruining your lovely new floor. Likewise, using the wrong type of cleaning solution can stain the laminate board.

Neither of these two options is very desirable, especially not when you’ve just invested in what you hoped would be a long-term purchase. This is why it’s so important to take good care of your laminate floor; with just a little TLC, you can add years onto the life of a laminate floor and prevent it from losing its sheen and structure.

We obviously want you to get the most out of your new floor and for you to remain happy with it, even years down the line; so here’s some handy tips on how to keep your laminate floor in tip top condition:

Don’t get it too wet!

This rule isn’t reserved solely for Gremlins, getting your laminate flooring wet can cause it some serious damage. It’s crucial to be very careful when using water to clean your laminate floor, as too much can cause the floor to warp and swell, resulting in a ruin of a floor. So be sparing when using water to clean the floor!

We recommend using a spray bottle and only applying a little on select areas of the floor you intend to mop. If the floor can’t dry by itself after a few minutes then you’re using too much!

Sweep Regularly

Laminate flooring can get stained and sticky but a great way to pre-empt this is by making sure you sweep up on the regular. This removes any excess dirt and so on, and helps to prevent the issue worsening. When sweeping, it’s important that you use a brush with soft bristles, as stiff bristles can damage

Invest in mats

Simple, but effective: buying door mats encourages people to think about the mess they’re dragging into your home. They’ll either wipe their shoes or the sight of a mat will force them to consider taking their shoes off altogether.

Having to take your shoes off in someone’s house is always a bit of an annoyance, but if it keeps your floor nice and clean, who cares!

Get the hoover out!

The humble hoover, or vacuum cleaner to our friends across the pond, is one of the greatest inventions of the 20th century. It has revolutionised cleaning in our homes and has undoubtedly saved countless lives due to the improved hygiene it offers.

Laminate flooring and the hoover go hand in hand. A quick once over with the hoover and your laminate floor will look good as new, with dust and dirt swiftly disposed of. Do be careful though, laminate floors tend to be pretty scratch resistant, but you shouldn’t take that as a given. You don’t want a big scratch down your floor.

No chemicals!

Staying away from harmful bleaches and chemicals will make a huge difference when it comes to the maintenance of your laminate floor. It might be tempting to grab for the bleach when you spot a stain, but we’d always recommend other options, damp cloths and a bit of elbow grease will generally get just about anything out.

Warm water will always work better than cold, but you don’t want to be damaging your floor with steaming hot liquid, even if it is just water. Using diluted vinegar in the water is also a great way to avoid using chemicals while getting rid of any stains you’re facing.

For more stubborn stains, get creative: Nail polish? Get the nail polish remover. Blood? Use a touch of window cleaner and a damp cloth.

Act Fast!

Probably the most important piece of advice on this list: when you spill, clean it up immediately!

Wiping up the mess straight away means you don’t allow the liquid in the spillage to seep through the cracks or cause any kind of lasting damage to your floor.

Simply get a sponge, dry cloth or paper towel and blot the spill as soon as it happens, then, if you need to, dampen a cloth and give a more thorough wipe to remove any lingering stains.

Following these tips will help to keep your floor in great condition for the duration of its life span, saving you money in the long run. For more advice on laminate floors, you can come down to our showroom, or give us a call on 0141 429 3541, and one of our flooring experts will help guide you through buying and maintaining a new laminate floor.

Abingdon’s Softest Ever Carpet

Here we are again, back to talk about carpets! This time, though, we’re talking about Abingdon’s softest ever carpet. Among the new ranges are Secret Affair, Loving Touch, Lasting Romance and Deep Feeling.

We hope you’re not growing tired of our carpet and flooring chat, but it’s the perfect time of year to be buying! Long enough before the Christmas rush, so you won’t be scrimping and scraping for Santa, and just before the kids go back to school.

With this in mind, Modish Furnishing pull out all the stops and go to great lengths to bring new and exciting carpet ranges to our Glasgow showroom! So this week, we’ve added a whole bunch of new ranges from the Abingdon collection of carpets!

Abingdon Carpets – Best of the Best

Over the years, Abingdon Carpets have been one of our most popular sellers, with a whole bunch of advantages. The new ranges come with just as many benefits and a host of… interesting names, to say the least. Among these new arrivals, we welcome:

  • Secret Affair
  • Loving Touch
  • Lasting Romance
  • Deep Feeling

Not exactly the types of names we’d choose for a carpet, but our expertise is about the carpet itself, not how they should be named!

Benefits of Abingdon Carpets

So what are the advantages of these new carpet ranges? Well, for starters, each one comes with a 10 year warranty. This means you can rest easy without having to worry about spills and stains. In houses with pets and children (or even clumsy adults) the threat of a ruined carpet thanks to a tipped over wine glass or muddy shoes coming through the house is very real. But because of the 10 year manufacturer warranty you won’t lose a minutes sleep over those issues!

Another new development from Abingdon is the use of 100% polyester in their carpets. This is a trend that has been gaining significant popularity in recent years. Abingdon have gone for a brand new weave of polyester, making their new ranges extra sturdy and long lasting.

Caring for your carpet

Wear and tear, like stains and spills, is a real problem with a lot of carpets. High traffic areas suffer the most. These areas around doors tend to slack and wear away quicker than elsewhere in the home. This is something that 100% polyester carpets are able to handle a lot better than naturally weaved fibre carpets. The new Abingdon lines are able to withstand heavy usage over a sustained period of time. Hence it is one of the most durable carpets on the market.

Something that really helps the polyester carpet to stand out is the fact that it’s bleach cleanable. If the worst happens and there’s carpet chaos, you can get the heavy cleaning products out. Abingdon even make the promise that their carpets are guaranteed against ALL household food and drink stains!

British Made Carpets

Abingdon, a well-respected and established British carpet manufacturer, have really upped the game with their new ranges. Their stain guarantees and warranties make these carpets a fantastic choice for the type of family home that wants to have a great new carpet. And without the worry of it getting ruined, and without the burden of an astronomical outlay.

Abingdon Carpets in Glasgow

All of our carpets come with a free fitting and measuring service.

Carpet Magnificence at Modish Furnishing

Our good friends at Associated Weavers, the company responsible for some of the best ranges of carpet on the market, have done it again. Not content with previous success stories such as their luxurious iSense carpets or earlier Invictus collections, Associated Weavers are back with something pretty special!

There’s a new member to the hugely popular Invictus collection: the Magnificus!

New and Improved Carpet

The Magnificus collection is a step up from previous iterations of Invictus carpets. Learning from their mistakes, while sticking to what makes them so great, Invictus have really pulled it out of the bag with this new carpet.

Demand for 100% Polypropylene carpets is on the rise, and Invictus has listened to the needs of the customers, creating the new Magnificus range from 100% Polypropylene. Where polypropylene carpets were once considered the ‘budget option’, they’re now seen as the sensible choice when it comes to purchasing a new carpet.

Advantages of Polypropylene Carpet

Polypropylene carpets represent state of the art fibre technology and are capable of withstanding the wear and tear of everyday life: such as messy pets and clumsy kids. The technology in these types of carpets help them to retain their soft and sumptuous feel for a lot longer than traditional carpets, giving you more bang for your buck, or carpet for your cash!


One of the most important things polypropylene carpets have going for them though is the fact that they’re bleach cleanable. The Magnificus itself even comes with a 20 year warranty against stains and wear. Most carpet manufacturers only offer as much as a five year warranty. This just goes to show the confidence Associated Weavers have in their polypropylene technology and ‘stain away yarn’.

Does it come in other colours?

You’d be forgiven for thinking that the remarkable build and durability of these carpets would mean you’d have to make sacrifices in other departments; this couldn’t be farther from the truth though! The Magnificus boasts Invictus’ softest ever feel, and comes in a wide variety of colours: 15 to be exact!

How much does it cost?

The cost must be astronomical though? Nope! The Magnificus is a cost effective, luxury option capable of improving any home and bringing a room to life. The bleachable polypropylene and 20 year warranty means this carpet will also last you a very long time – saving you money in the long run!

Such is the durability of this carpet, we see it as a great solution for anywhere in the home; your best carpet shouldn’t be limited to the parts of your home with less traffic! This carpet can stand up to the tests of even the busiest of homes without losing its plush feel or gorgeous appearance.

This carpet is easy to install, easy to maintain and even easier on the soles of your feet! Invictus proclaim this to be their softest ever carpet and we have to agree, it’s the best of the Invictus range to date!

What else do you offer?

Modish Furnishing offer free measuring and fitting for all carpets and you can browse our vast range of carpets at our showroom.

Hardwood Flooring: Traditional, charming and a wise investment

Customers often come in to our showroom with a barrel load of questions about flooring. What flooring should I choose? Which is the cheapest type of flooring? What is the most durable type of flooring?

These questions are completely understandable. When it comes to choosing new floor, you are making one of the most important decisions you’re likely to face in the next decade; I say that because that’s how long you’ll be left to rue the consequences of any bad decision you take on the issue. No one wants to be reminded day after day about a bad decision they’ve made, but that’s exactly what will happen if you don’t select the right floor!

So Modish Furnishing is here to help make sure you make the right choice when it comes to your next floor! Here are some advantages of choosing Hardwood Flooring over the likes of carpet, laminate or vinyl…

Benefits of Hardwood Flooring

Hardwood Flooring is easy to clean

There comes the dog, paws covered in mud, right onto the living room carpet… oh and there’s a child, carelessly and clumsily spilling blackcurrant juice all over that nice new cream rug.

Is this the kind of nightmare scenario that keeps you up at night? If it is, then maybe it’s high time you switched to Hardwood Flooring.

Hardwood Flooring is unbelievably easy to clean: it’s as simple as wiping it down or sweeping it up. No more stains, no more pet hair, no more worries!

Hardwood floors last longer

Hardwood floors are immune to common issues that plague, threaten and ruin floors and carpets in the modern family home. A hardwood floor will repel dirt, stains, dust, water and all the problems that come with them.

What would normally ruin a carpet is easy work for a hardwood floor!

When maintained correctly, a Hardwood Floor is capable of lasting a lifetime. This not only represents outstanding value for money, but also makes life a whole lot easier knowing you needn’t replace your existing floor once a decade!

Hardwood Floors are more Hygienic than Carpet

Lurking beneath every soft step on a carpet lies a filthy secret: hidden in amongst each and every fibre of your woven carpet are things like: bad smells, pollen, dust particles, dirt, germs and lord only knows what else.

These nasty little surprises get stuck in between the furry fibres of the carpet and can remain trapped for years if your carpet isn’t professionally treated regularly.

None of these issues affect a Hardwood Floor though, a little bit of TLC is all that’s needed and all of those pesky odours and dirt particles are gone!

Hardwood Flooring looks amazing

This point is more of a subjective one, but it’s difficult to disagree: nothing looks more impressive than a traditional wooden floor.

Hardwood floors create a comfortable and homely vibe, adding a timeless charm to any room. No other type of flooring can replicate the elegance afforded by a hardwood floor. It’s even well known among estate agents that houses are more desirable and easier to sell when they have hardwood floors!

A gift to the senses, hardwood floors feel great underfoot, look superb and bring a sophisticated wooden aroma to the home.

Hardwood Flooring is more versatile

The incredibly wide ranging variety of hardwood flooring is yet another reason it stands above its contemporaries.
