Glasswells is renowned for its high quality products, from furniture and soft furnishings to cookware – but there’s so much more.
Did you know it’s the largest flooring retailer in Suffolk, employing around 40 specialist fitters qualified to fit everything from carpets, wood and laminate flooring to luxury vinyl tiles and planks by market leaders Karndean and Amtico. These made to last products aren’t for DIY-ers but for the more discerning customer who’s looking for a service too; the store can move furniture, uplift and dispose of your old flooring.
There’s a free home measuring service and right now carpet fitting’s free too.
The soft furnishing department sells bespoke curtains, blinds and accessories; with thousands of fabrics to choose from, including all the designer brands like Harlequin, Sanderson and Voyage.
