If you are looking for flooring then look out for pink signs and sheep grazing on the lawn outside a showroom in Bell Lane, Uckfield.
The sheep models have become a landmark on the Bellbrook Industrial Estate and make it easy to find Fluffy Side Up at 76 Bell Lane, a business which supplies all types of flooring, wooden, luxury vinyl tiles, carpets, normal vinyl and bamboo.
Children are fascinated by the sheep but they are not the only ones. Drivers of articulated lorries visiting nearby premises have also been known to pull up to take pictures.
Fluffy Side Up owner Sebastian Bishop said introducing the sheep was the best thing he could have done. “Business doubled overnight and within two weeks it was phenomenal. They have been a great talking point.”
Sebastian brings 25 years of experience as a carpet fitter to the business he launched four-and-a-half years ago and which has grown steadily ever since.
He supplies quality products and once he knows what is needed by a customer is able to recommend appropriate flooring for the job. “If I don’t think it will do the job then I won’t sell it,” he said.
Sebastian takes pride in the service offered and said customers appreciate that along with the quality of work provided.
He has a good team of fitters. “We’re not perfect but we strive for perfection and, if there is a problem, we rectify it without a fuss,” he said.
A move to the showroom next to Green DIY proved to be a good one and customers are able to choose paints and flooring in one outing.
Sebastian said: “We offer a full service as standard, from moving furniture and replacing it afterwards, to taking away old flooring, preparing the floors, and doors if necessary. Whatever needs to be done will be done, including clearing up afterwards.”
Fluffy Side Up offers a carpet cleaning service and also sells rugs to complement wooden floors and vacuum cleaners to help keep carpets in tip top condition.
The business also does contract flooring for schools and commercial premises
A warm welcome is offered, along with a hot drink, on arrival at 76 Bell Lane and remember, all you need to do to find the showroom is to look out for the pink signage and sheep on the lawn outside.
