Hebburn-based Flooring Works has recorded its busiest year in businesses after refurbishing its boutique showroom.
In recent months the firm, set up by Martin Blane in 2010, has reinvested a chunk of its profits into recruiting more flooring experts and fitters, as well as developing a brand new website.
Mr Blane said: “Flooring Works has been fortunate enough to have grown year upon year and we are always looking for new ways to build and improve.
“We hope to open a second store in the next 18 months which will help us increase our customer base and ensure we are able to cover a much wider area in the region.
“Our aim is to provide our customers with the ultimate service at a price that is fair and affordable.
“We want to give people access to the world's leading flooring brands as well as a professional installation flooring installation service that other firms in the region simply can't offer.”
