Magic has happened with this new empty space

Our beautiful new showroom at Benton is now open.  We love it and we know you will too and look forward to seeing you visit soon.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank our great bunch of friends and family because without their help we could not have achieved what we have.

Also, a massive thanks to our colleagues, Liam, Michael, Neil, Paul, Phil, Scott M, Scott W and Steve who worked tirelessly to ensure that both showrooms remained open whilst the work took place in the new showroom.  By working the extra hours and usual days off, they managed to pull apart and empty Unit 4.  It wasn’t an easy task and one we don’t ever hope to repeat!

A big shout out to the amazing fitters who managed to build the vision we had in our heads; your craftsmanship and dedication is truly fantastic.  Thank you to Andy, Craig, Darren, Jake, James, Joni, Jordan, Neil, Robbie, Sam and Sean.

Our new showroom has over 90 doors on display from our suppliers XL and LPD.  To complement doors you purchase, we have a great range of handles and accessories for you to choose from.

We also have a fantastic range of Engineered, Laminates and Vinyl flooring most of which can be taken away the same day. 

We’ve even gone the extra mile and showcased staircase displays to give you some great ideas for that full house re-vamp.

Exciting times ahead and we’re all very proud of our achievements and sharing it with our customers.

Michael joined Doors & Floors Direct Limited on a Joinery Apprenticeship in 2018.

Unfortunately, a proverbial ‘spanner’ was thrown into the works when Michael’s college closed later last year.   

As we expand, in early 2019 we started to put the wheels in motion to move our Benton showroom to a new site across the road. This site will give us more space, accompanied by a larger warehouse to manage.

We know our business will become a lot busier this year so we are really pleased to announce that Michael will take on a new role supporting the management of this warehouse. 

We wish him all the best in his new role.

In November, we announced that we’re moving our Benton shop – not far though! In fact, just across the road. 

Over the last few weeks it’s been all hands-on deck as we strip out the unit that we are moving into (used to be Grainger Games) for us to create a bigger and better showroom to showcase a whole range of exciting products.

We’ve been snapping photos as we go to give you a hint of the size of the area.  We’ll be updating this as we progress to share how the new space is taking shape. 

We are aiming to be in by April so watch this space for more details of our launch.
