About us – Carpetwise Carpet Shop in Milton Keynes



Carpetwise is an independent, family run, carpet and flooring business with a carpet shop and showroom in historic Stony Stratford, Milton Keynes; a thriving market town with many independent shops, pubs and restaurants. The parking in Stony Stratford is plentiful and free.

We are one of the longest established flooring shops in the Milton Keynes area, we have been providing our valued customers with a friendly and flexible service since 1993. Combine that with great pricing, free fitting on all carpet room orders over £150, free carpet gripper / door bars and and you will see why we have a large, happy and loyal base of repeat customers.


When we talk about providing a flexible and practical service, that means that we understand that you might need help moving furniture, that you may want us to lift and remove your old carpet or flooring, that fitting your flooring room by room over a few days or weeks might be more sensible. None of this is a problem.

Our Flooring shop in Milton Keynes

Our shop in Milton Keynes contains samples from all of the flooring ranges, carpets, vinyls, Karndean (LVT), laminate, engineered wood, rugs and accessories. There are several thousand to choose from. There are also very dedicated, knowledgeable people manning the shop, Ross, Rebecca, Paul and Linda. So assistance in narrowing down the choices and advice on suitability is always close to hand. Let us do the hard work.

Wool carpet ranges

Wool carpets are available in 100% wool, 80/20 or 50/50. Wool is a very hard wearing, crush resistant, resilient fibre. Wool carpets come in an extensive range of colours, with much more subtlety to the colour range than man-made. We also have a range of wool carpets that can be made to your colour specification, just bring in a piece of cloth, curtain, paper and we can have a sample made. If you’re happy with the sample then we can have your carpets made, bespoke to you.

Stain Resistant Bleach Cleanable

Man-made carpets tend to come in Polypropylene, this is a very stain resistant, bleach cleanable fibre. Yes, you really can clean these carpets with a solution of bleach and water. However that would only be required in the most extreme of circumstances as the fibre is very stain resistant. Polypropylene delivers excellent value for money and a very practical fibre that is extremely suitable to the rigours of day to day life. Practical does not have to be boring though and the most luxurious, soft, silky feeling, deep Saxony carpets come in man-made fibres.

We only stock good quality wood flooring, that locks together perfectly, providing an excellent looking finish.
