Carpet & floor covering specialists

About us

Phil Gilbert, flooring and carpet fitter

At 16 Phil won an apprenticeship with a family owned company that specialised in all forms of carpet and flooring and after 5 years of working and training at Kidderminster College he travelled, spending a number of years living and running a team of carpet fitters in the luxury end of the market on the northern beaches of Sydney, Australia.

Ocean Flooring was started out of demand really from more and more clients asking me to do private work in the evenings and weekends. So out of reputation alone Ocean Flooring was born.

These days Ocean Flooring are grateful to have a wide range of clients from the lovely old Betty Glen, who has a new kitchen vinyl every few years to family homes, schools, landlords - big and small, first time buyers on a budget, the Sussex Beacon, the rich and famous and thanks to Nutshell and some of Brighton's leading interior designers we've also been working in some of Sussex's most stunning homes.

“After 24 years of installing carpets and flooring for other companies I wanted to combine my background and experience to create a company that’s truly customer friendly. I believe our hands on experience gives us a real insight into our products that you can’t get from sales driven companies.”

“I hoped that if we concentrated on being the best and not the biggest that the rest would fall into place and fingers crossed it seems to be working”.

"Finding the right carpet or flooring will result in an interior being well rounded in both colour & design. To get the right interior scheme you need to build from the floor up."
