Are you looking to renovate a property or looking for an iconic piece of design for your home?  Are you reluctant to visit the many chain stores that we are now so familiar with due to their generic products and lack of personal service?  Then why not look to a local independent merchant for products to upgrade your home.   

You don’t need to be in a big metropolis to find help on your quest for stylish interiors.  Even in small UK towns, there is a wealth of high quality products and services available from local businesses.  Often retailers may be in more random locations but as real specialists, selling niche products, their shop may be a destination in it’s own right.   

We decided to do some research into what interior design businesses are situated in our local area and we chose Bingley, West Yorkshire as our test area.  We wanted to see what independent merchants are situated in a small British town, such as Bingley, and what they can offer the style conscious homeowner.  

Bingley is a small market town with a population of just under 20,000 and is situated in the Aire Valley, West Yorkshire, close to both Leeds and Bradford and on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales.    Bingley is situated in the heart of the UK’s textile industry and its Victorian mills still illustrate its history of producing woollen goods. 

This expertise is reflected in the wealth of carpet suppliers in the area.    For instance, Carpet Time, based in Bingley, is one of Bradford’s best-known carpet retailers.  Started in 1947, this family business has adapted over the year’s to suit ever-changing consumer demands adapting their flooring range to include the latest in high quality laminates and vinyls.  

Another legacy from the industrial revolution is Salts Mill, which is now a real destination in West Yorkshire when it comes to interiors.  The Home store on the mill’s main floor offers stunningly presented designer homewares and the ultimate in classic furniture; Mies van der Rohe chairs sit alongside Alessi kettles and Phillipe Starck lemon juicers.  The Mill, Saltaire also sells affordable art for the home with a wide range of posters and prints available from the bookshop.

As the UK’s leading radiator retailer, Feature Radiators, based in Bingley Railway Station, is the one-stop port of call for anyone wanting stylish, high performance heating at competitive prices.  This award winning company offers a selection of the best contemporary, designer, traditional cast iron and electric radiators and heated towel rails on the market in terms of quality, design and value for money.  With over 160 styles on display in their showroom, expert advice, unrivalled customer service and nationwide delivery, we are widely recognized as the UK's leading radiator specialist.

For textiles, The Design Mill at Castlefields Industrial Estate offers supply and design services for curtains and blinds from a range of fabulous fabrics at discounted prices.  With Bradford and Keighley close by, Bingley also is ideally located for sourcing Asian fabrics due to Airedale’s connections to the East.  Asian textiles are readily available from a huge array of merchants around the city, most notably Bombay Stores, Shearbridge Road, Bradford, which is the UK’s largest Asian department store.  

Last but not least, the latest addition to local interiors shopping in the Aire Valley is Labyrinth Interiors, which offer high quality paint and wallpaper from their showroom on Main Street.  

It’s clear to see that big cities and chain stores are not the only option when it comes to sourcing the right interiors products.  Local independent merchants operating around the country can offer a personalised service and as specialists in a particular field, their knowledge of products and the market makes choosing the features for your home not only easy and uncomplicated but also enjoyable.
