Concrete Effect Moduleo

23rd July 2015

Moduleo Flooring in large kitchen

Our clients in Newton Mearns had moved into their new home in January this year and really wanted a concrete effect porcelain tile, but without the cold hard floor surface.

The house was stunning, and as it was only sixteen years old it still had the original flooring. The kitchen was a really large open space, and our clients were happy with the design and layout but were unhappy with the colour and feel of their floor.

The floor was a dark grey, almost black, hard cold slate. With three children – a 9 year old, 2 year old and 5 month old baby – they were concerned that if any of the children fell over they would hurt themselves on such a hard floor. In addition, with winter coming, they wanted something warmer and softer underfoot. The grouting had begun to come loose as well, so every time they cleaned the floor parts of it were coming up.

As it was real slate, it was also very difficult to clean as dirt became ingrained into the rough surface. Finally, one of the tiles was cracked and so they felt that now as the time to change the floor before their youngest child began crawling. The clients didn’t really know exactly what they wanted, but they wanted something that wouldn’t show up dirt and crumbs as much as a dark floor, and it needed to be waterproof and scratch proof with the children in the house. They didn’t want a real wood as the rest of the floor either side of the kitchen was a very good quality oak effect laminate.

They chose several finishes in the shop but when we took them to their home, they completely changed their mind as different lights showed up different elements of the flooring. One of the ones they were interested in the shop looked too green in their home – which just goes to show the importance of seeing samples in situ. We recommended Moduleo flooring which is a luxury vinyl and very competitively priced in comparison to other well known brands. It’s very warm underfoot, a click system so is to easy to fit, and could be fitted on top of the existing slate with an underlay over the top. They opted for a concrete effect which has an almost silvery metallic sheen on it. They felt that it would lighten the kitchen and open up the space in comparison to the dark slate.

They didn’t want a wood effect as they wanted something that would not clash with the maple units and go with the granite worktop. In addition they felt it would look better against their white kitchen furniture. Our fitters arrived and managed to fit their new floor in just half a day. Our customers were thrilled with the results and feel that it is so much easier to maintain and clean, and they are no longer worrying about the children hurting themselves!

Jim Hillier 1st June 2022

Absolutely Delighted with the Conduct and Quality of Work. My Wife and I decided to replace our Bedroom Carpet and lay down wooden flooring for our Hall. We noticed that there was a possible supplier for flooring at first floors shop on Fenwick Road. We met up with David and Graham and explained that we were looking for quality products for both Items. We were shown flooring possibilities from their extensive range of designs and thicknesses and soon found a product that we were interested in. We were delighted to find out that they had carpet selections at the back of the shop which surprised us; you could not appreciate the size of the place from the shop front! We chose a carpet that we thought met our specifications and were given a reasonable sized sample to take home to see how it would look in our room taking into account of our particular lighting conditions. First Floors sent out a guy to take measurements for floor, accessory fittings and carpet.
Being very happy with the proposition given to us and estimates of work completion dates and prices we went ahead with the order. Graham kept us updated with the schedule and I am happy to say that the work was carried out on time and was completed to a very high quality with which we were both delighted with.
I would be happy to reference this company for anyone who is interested in upgrading their floors or replacing carpets.

Alastair Barrie 2nd June 2022

Good selection, service and fitting.We were able to take home some samples to select the carpet that was just right for our room. There was a delay in our furniture arriving and First Floors were very accommodating in putting our fitting date back to suit. The fitting went very well indeed - couldn’t have been easier.

Olive Leitch 1st May 2022

Excellent service from First Floors. All staff including fitters have been helpful and gave a friendly professional service. My new stair carpet has been fitted very well and already received many complements

Linda McBrearty 27th April 2022

Excellent service with care. On our first visit to the showroom, David advised and helped us with our choice but never rushed us and gave us lots of confidence in making our final choice of engineered wooden flooring. Our new build home was delayed for a few months and during this time David and his team waited patiently with us until the flooring was able to be fitted! The fitting throughout our new house was more than excellent. The care and attention to detail was everything we could have hoped for, our thanks to the fitting team. We would have no hesitation in recommending First Floors, their professionalism and customer service was 100%.

Anna Smylie April 2021

Fantastic service. David gave me great advice on which flooring would be most suitable for my business premises. Within the week Steven came to fit the flooring and, as promised, was in and out in a day. Can’t recommend this local Company enough. Anna Smylie ZuZu Giffnock.

We recently purchased engineered oak flooring and carpets from First Floors. The customer service from David and team was exceptional. We had just moved home from overseas and bought a house with no floors so we did not have access to allow First Floors to measure. Theye allowed us to use our own measurements as we wanted the floors laid ASAP once we had the keys. The floor is beautiful and laid very professionally (thanks Steven). The carpets are also lovely and exactly what I wanted. The only thing I would change about the experience would be to have First Floors assess the house in advance. We have fire doors which were a problem the day the carpets were laid. This was not the issue of First Floors and it was resolved quickly. Thanks again David, we would highly recommend First Floors to anyone.

Ian and Lesley Proctor January 2022

Another Great Job Done!!
Just had our third floor project in seven years completed by First Floors once again.
Great service from David and his showroom team from assisting in the selection of materials through to arranging the installation. Chris and his team worked tidily and efficiently on the hardwood flooring with great attention to detail. Gordon who fitted the stair carpet was very professional in his work and was able to resolve some problematic details to our entire satisfaction.
Would definitely recommend First Floors.

Gavin Reid 18/08/20

We recently had First Floors install laminate flooring in our lounge and hallway and are absolutely delighted with the final result! It has been finished to a high standard with great attention to detail.

Having had a rough idea of what we were looking for, David helped find the perfect flooring for both rooms.

We were booked in quickly and kept informed throughout the process.

We would definitely recommend and use again.

Christine Sharp 23/08/20
