Moving house can be a very stressful experience—and never more so than during the Christmas period!
There is so much to think about. First, all the stress that comes with the festive season. Wrapping presents, visiting family, preparing the Christmas dinner with all the trimmings. But now you have more to contend with…
From showings to van rentals and packing of your belongings, there is so much to organise when you move house. In fact, with so many things to tick off your ‘To Do’ list, it’s easy to forget the finer details of your new home.
The last thing you need is to arrive at your new property to find it missing the small details which make a house a home. Unfinished floors and empty curtain rails can easily deflate your moving day excitement. What’s more, who wants to spend Christmas or the New Year in an unfinished house that’s rough around the edges?

Meet Karndean and Amtico—the next big names in design flooring!
Their innovative designs push the boundaries of flooring, delivering creative results that are both functional and beautiful. Together, they are the faces of the design flooring revolution, armed with innovative ideas, precise craftsmanship and stunning designs. But who are Karndean and Amtico? Read on to find out!
Who are Karndean?
Karndean are leading manufacturers in practical flooring with a luxury twist. Just as their slogan—“inspired by nature, designed for living”—suggests, Karndean take the classic beauty of natural flooring and combine it with the functionality of vinyl tiles. The result? Versatile, luxurious flooring for both commercial and domestic environments.
Karndean have spent years developing innovative designs and textures in order to achieve such like-for-like realism. In fact, many if their designs are so accurate, they are often mistaken for the real thing! But surely Karndean is better than the real thing? You can enjoy the classic, chic, timeless design of natural wood, all the while appreciating the practical benefits of vinyl flooring. And what’s more, each piece is uniquely beautiful and bespoke!
Who are Amtico?
Amtico are proud to be designed and manufactured in Britain. Crafted in their specialist factory in Coventry for genuine provenance, their luxury flooring is very much functional meets beautiful. No wonder they’ve become one of the leading manufacturers for modern flooring design!
Unlike a natural floor, Amtico is low maintenance. It doesn’t require regular buffing, polishing or refurbishment. Instead, the occasional mop or sweep will keep everything as good as new. What’s more, their unrivalled choice of flooring—from wood to stone and abstract designs—ensure that you will find the perfect match for your home.
Dovetail are proud to be specialists in Karndean and Amtico design flooring.

The dining room can be the heart of any family home.
Even if it’s only used for special occasions — or in some cases, barely at all — the dining room should be treated as more than “just a place to eat”. It’s a social space where the family can come together, whether it be to dine, talk about their day, or even to take part in a family game night!
The flexibility of a dining room allows you to tailor it perfectly to your needs. From formal dinners to a cosy alcove for drinks and nibbles, Dovetail have assembled our top tips to organising the perfect dining room layout.
Is your room mostly used for formal dining?
A large table with extendable leaves is the perfect choice. Should you need to entertain large crowds — such as for a family gathering — you can easily add leaves to reach your perfect size. And once the party is over? Simply remove the leaves for a smaller, more personal dining space.
Introduce a serving table to the room if you usually host large numbers of people. This way you can spread your dishes “buffet-style across the room”, so the table feels less cramped and more inviting.
A large, sturdy table is also the perfect companion for a study. Why not add some bookshelves to the room so it can act as a study outside of dining time? It could equally become a space to relax with the newspaper and a coffee.
Do you feel your dining room is too small to utilise?
Nonsense! You just need to follow these very simple (but very effective) tips. A round pedestal table with armless chairs will create the illusion of a larger space, while a monochromatic palette is also effective.
It’s important to keep the floor and walls clutter-free and minimal; if the space is filled with side tables, bookshelves and lamps, you are simply introducing more corners to wiggle around, and the room feels all the smaller for it.
But what about flooring?
Obviously, the more often you use your dining room, you will need a more hard-wearing flooring than if it only used for special occasions. Laminate flooring may be a cost-efficient choice, but it beautifully compliments any wooden furniture. It is also easy to clean and stain resistant, so is perfect for heavily frequented dining areas.
Alternatively, carpets can equally work as well in your dining room. They also add warmth and comfort (often missing due to the minimalist furniture) while a fresh, neutral colour choice can help to brighten the space.
Dovetail have a variety of dining furniture and flooring available from our showroom.
Our Pacific Lloyd loom cane collection comes in 8 subtle colours with co-ordinating fabrics, while Daro offers a vast choice for any taste. Why not take a look at our extensive cane and loom collection for yourself?
Did you know 1 and a half acres of forest are cut down every second?
Even more shocking, estimates from the United Nations suggest 18 million acres of forest are lost each year. This is a staggering number, so Dovetail are passionate about making a change.
We are so excited to introduce our NEW range of eco-friendly carpets and flooring. Some of the biggest names in environmentally progressive textiles are now available at our Norwich showroom, including Riviera, Ted Todd and Forbo. 100% natural and renewable, these stylish collections both look good AND help protect the Earth.
Simple yet sophisticated, the indulgently tactile designs of Alternative Flooring are perfect for any home.
Every one of their carpets are made from ethically-sourced fibres. From the soft, silky textures of the Tiliaceae plant to the pure, white fibres of the Agave Sisalana plant, these innovative designs are both natural and sustainable.
Alternative Flooring use 100% wool fibres for their stunning wool collections. What’s more, their Barefoot collection is made using completely natural, undyed wool and handwoven using traditional looms.
Choose Riviera for a truly eco-friendly carpet solution. Their bio-degradable, ethically-sourced carpets are crafted from 100% natural and sustainable resources — one of only a few working manufacturers to do this.
Did you know 90% of carpets take up to 500 years to break-down in the soil? This is because they are crafted using man-made fibres, such as Nylon, Polypropylene or Polyester. These fibres derive from oil, so the toxins released can be really harmful for the environment. But not Riviera!
Riviera carpets take between one to five years to naturally bio-degrade. Plus, as they are made from 100% natural resources, no harmful chemicals or VOCs will be released into the soil.
What’s more, Riviera Home™ have recently introduced their exciting new eco-collections, crafted from 100% natural wool. Therefore, no dyestuffs, chemicals or stain blocking treatments were added during their creation.
For over 20 years, Ted Todd have pushed the boundaries for wooden flooring. As a result, they are now one of the world’s leading flooring brands. Completely unrivalled in quality and creativity, their beautiful, innovative wooden floors are both stunning AND environmentally friendly.
Ted Todd ensure all of their flooring is responsibly sourced. In fact, 95% of their wood is FSC® and PEFC certified. Indeed, their wooden floors are crafted using 100% natural hardwood with ZERO emissions or harmful pollutants!
In a world of environmental awareness, CORKART utilise cork — a natural, bio-degradable and 100% sustainable resource — to craft warm, luxurious and comfortable flooring.
Cork is an incredible material. Harvested from the Cork Oak, it survives without the need for fertiliser, irrigation or chemical herbicides. In fact, it is the only tree where the bark regenerates naturally, meaning it can be sustainably stripped without the tree being harmed.
What’s more, the bark from the Cork Oak retains a significant amount of CO2 while it grows, while also helping support natural biodiversity, such as shrubs and wildlife.
Marmoleum by Forbo
Marmoleum a natural floor covering that’s over 150 years old. Associated with durability, quality, sustainability and truly innovative design, it’s created from 97% natural raw materials, including flax, linseed, rosin and limestone.
Marmoleum flooring is versatile in application, colour and design. It can easily be fixed to your floor with low solvent adhesive, in keeping with its sustainable, eco-friendly attributes.
Our exciting range of eco-friendly carpet and flooring can be viewed in full here.
