If you’re searching for top-quality flooring in Bishop Auckland, you’ve come to the right place! Located on Watling Road, our friendly team at Frank’s The Flooring Store is ready to help you find the perfect flooring for your home.

With our impressive selection and unbeatable prices, it’s no wonder why we’re the North East’s largest independent family-run flooring store.

Store Manager, Graham, has been there for 22 years – man and boy! The store has a team of 9 working and Graham says it’s the characters in his team that make his day. Graham has stayed so long because it feels like a real family, and he’s still learning even now. Everyone takes pride in their displays and they like to have fun; for instance, laminate doesn’t just have to be on the floor! Check out the amazing laminate cladding in the hall at the store in Bishop Auckland—Graham liked it so much he did the same in his own hall at home.

Graham’s team is committed to giving you good, honest advice on the best options with no pressure. Graham’s best advice is, “Tell us what your budget is, how much traffic or footfall you get in that area, what and where you want it laid, and what colour or pattern you’re looking for, and we’ll steer you right and make sure you get it to your budget.” At Frank’s Bishop Auckland, everyone in this team just wants to put a smile on people’s faces and make their day!

  3. Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT): For a blend of luxury and durability, our LVT flooring is unbeatable. It mimics the look of natural materials like wood and stone, offering a high-end finish that stands up to everyday wear and tear.

  5. Rugs: From area rugs to small rugs simply for decoration, we have it all! Fun fact – The term rug was first used in English in the 1550s, with the meaning ‘coarse fabric’. The term is of Scandinavian origin, comparable to Norwegian rugga ‘coarse coverlet’, from Old Norse rogg ‘shaggy tuft’. This means the word rug is practically Geordie!
