My name is Steven Holmes, I'm from a family of flooring fitters and I'm the 4th generation in the business. I've been fitting flooring professionally for 15 years, managing large flooring companies for 8 years and my own business for 4 years. As of 2016 I started up my own business in the North West via MyBuilder, away from my families successful business in the West Midlands that has been around for over 60 years. I now employ 20+ staff over 2 sites. Please read more on my profile.

About Holmes Carpets
Holmes Carpets is a 4th generation family run business. We originated in Derbyshire and have been trading in the Greater Manchester area since early 2016 and secured premises that opened its doors to the public in early 2017.
To this day we have proudly supplied and fitted flooring for over 4,000 customers and have received over 800 positive 5-star reviews online from 2016 through to 2020!

We are still rapidly expanding and plan to open in Liverpool, Stoke & Oldham over the next few years.
We cover the whole Greater Manchester area but also travel further afield for full house projects and large commercial projects nationwide. We promise to beat any quote you’ve received online or in person and to provide you with a faultless, relaxing and unrivaled customer experience.
We hope to hear from you soon.

THE HISTORY BEHIND HOLMES CARPETS...
Holmes Carpets originated in the late 1910s when carpets were nothing like they are today. Selling rugs, carpets and furniture in the Derbyshire and Staffordshire area of the West Midlands. This trade was then passed on to my Uncle and Father, from my Grandfather and Great Grandfather along with the family name.
Both have now been trading in Derbyshire and Staffordshire from their premises for over 70 years combined. From fitting carpets in caravans, airplanes, houses, treehouses and even for royalty. Holmes carpets have always prided themselves on a can-do attitude and doing whatever it takes to meet a customer's flooring needs.
In the past, we've provided flooring in 7 different countries for loyal customers that are just unable to buy from other traders after experiencing what they do at Holmes Carpets.
Now, over 70 years on from the first days of Holmes Carpets, I have brought the family business and family name, Steven Holmes to Manchester and the North West. I started my business very small with just a small Clio and a roof rack and I could regularly be seen driving down the M62 with carpets tied to the roof! One year on in 2017, thanks to MyBuilder and the feedback from customers here we secured premises, office, showroom, warehouse, a number of vans, 4 fitting teams and a great team to ensure everything goes to plan in our offices. With 1000s of samples and ranges to choose from at the lowest possible prices, we are sure to be the best choice you can make!
