The Story

We are delighted to still be family owned and run after 22 years in the wood flooring business. Living Floors original showroom was born in Chester in 1997 and created by my parents Blair and Eleanor Smillie.

Along with my sister Elaine, I have worked in the business since the beginning, learning every aspect from creative design to unloading delivery lorries! I now head up our shutter side of the business and Elaine runs our Chester wood flooring showroom and sanding service.

In 1997 my father,  Blair, was working in Sweden and saw the gap in the market for a wood flooring specialist in the UK, the timing was perfect with the boom in DIY TV such as ‘Changing Rooms’ and we have never looked back.  Not only did the new trend for wood flooring look superb, it was also practical so its popularity has grown and grown.

By 2003 we had introduced plantation shutters to the company and were one of the first around to supply and install them. Along with the wood flooring we have grown over the years into the companies we are with a reputation to be proud of.

Living Shutters are proud to be completely independent and this allows us to have full control over the supply and quality of our products. 

As a small, specialist business we develop and nurture close relationships with our customers, giving attention to detail and bespoke solutions when required.

We like to think that we treat all of our customers as family.
