Grey is the colour

Grey is leading the way

Over the last few years grey colours  have overtaken the sales of all other colours in carpets. With so many shades and different quality’s available you will be spoilt for choice at Astra carpets. Thicker softer piles seem to be the most popular option closely followed by the more durable twist piles and textured loop pile carpets. If your looking for a thick deep pile for your lounge or bedroom, or a tough twist pile for your stairs or your dining room you will be sure to find something from our huge selection of samples on display.

We have lots of brands available such as Cormar,  Abingdon, Lano and Associated Weavers to name a few.



Choosing the right shade

We have a good selection of samples on display and we are quite happy for customers to borrow samples to view in their own home to help you make the right choice. We recommend seeing colour swatches of carpet (or any type of flooring) in your own home as they can look different in your own light.

All we ask is you provide us with your name and address and phone number if you would like to borrow some sample books. Some of the bigger manufacturers will also let you order small samples online to be posted directly to your home.

Free underlay and fitting offer

At Astra carpets we offer free underlay and fitting* on all our special order ranges £18.99m2 and above, with so many options to choose from you should be able to easily find a product that fits your budget. If you would like to upgrade from our free underlay we have more to choose from and you will receive a reduction in price on the upgraded underlay. * £25.00 Surcharge for stairs applies as we have to pay our fitters extra as stairs take longer to fit (£25.00 per flight if its a double stairs)



Our Measuring service

Astra Carpets offer a free measuring service, If you would like us to come and measure your areas before you visit our store,  or you can come to the store and choose some products and we can come out afterwards the choice is yours! Sometimes it is easier to know the measurements before you visit the store as we are then able to give you an exact price when you come in to choose.

You can bring in your own measurements which we can come out to check if you wish, or if its a flat area and you are confident of your sizes we can work to this also. If you are using your own sizes please remember to measure into all doorways and recesses and if possible bring in a drawing of the room to help our staff to advise you.


Stairs and landings

We will come out to measure stairs and landings as we need to get cutting plans for our fitters prior to them coming out to fit your carpet. You can still bring in rough measurements for us to give you a quotation don’t forget to draw the hall/landing shape and count how many stairs you have. Include the top step in the landing measurement and get as many sizes as you can in order for us to give you an accurate quote. If you decide to place an order for your stairs our estimator will come out to double check the measurements for you.


Uplift and disposal service

We normally ask our customers to have the areas to be carpeted (or flooring) to have the existing flooring up and area cleared of furniture. We understand this is not always possible as customers are not always able to do this or don’t have the time.

For an additional charge our fitters are able to uplift  your existing carpet and take it away and dispose of it for you, We are able to move some items of furniture but will have to make an extra charge to cover the fitters time. Please ask a member of staff for more details.

Come and visit our showroom at 244 Osmaston Road Derby to see our huge range of carpets, we are located just behind the Kwik fit garage set back slightly from the main road.
