Stunning Stringers

We had the pleasure of fitting a new floor in one of our favourite shops in the region recently!

Stringers Department Store in Lytham is currently having some renovation work and we were asked to install new flooring in their stunning gift shop area. The family run independent department and home store is an iconic part of Lytham, and their stunning range of products and unique shopping experience draws people from across the Fylde coast and beyond.

You can imagine just how thrilled we were to be approached about their flooring!

We worked with Creative SPARC Architects in Lytham to discuss the design style they were looking to achieve so that we could deliver flooring that matched the stylish look of the store, whilst being mindful of the footfall in the gift area and ensuring the flooring was robust enough to withstand this.

Our team at Gainsborough Flooring worked with the onsite team at Stringers to determine their requirements and come up with numerous options for them.

Jenny Clarke, Director at Stringers, commented, “We wanted a concrete effect floor which was both warm and contemporary, but also fairly simple to keep the look uncluttered, as it’s a busy area. We looked at a few different shades in situ to allow us to consider lighting and other shop fit elements. The team at Gainsborough were so helpful with their advice and support.”

Stringers opted for Amtico Spacia monument concrete which offers exceptional quality, durability and performance. Part of the decision was based on which flooring worked best alongside the existing floor adjacent to the gift shop, so it would create a natural flow as customers move from zone to zone.

James Hudson, the Site Manager for Lowther Building Company who is co-ordinating the build and renovation at Stringers liaised with the Gainsborough team and commented, “The team were very professional with a broad knowledge of the job at hand. They were meticulous in fitting and worked fluidly alongside our team and within the time frame given.”


Stringers were delighted with the stunning new floor, and we’ve also had numerous comments from our customers who shop at Stringers and have spotted the gorgeous new floor!

Jenny from Stringers concluded, “We are delighted with the quality, tone and overall effect; we will hopefully be using it elsewhere in the store as our project unfolds.’
