When it comes to choosing the right flooring for your home, it is easy to be overwhelmed by choice in terms of both material and design.
While there may be many options on the market, from solid timber and engineered wood, to porcelain and ceramic tiles and even rubber flooring, it pays to carefully consider the aesthetic you are looking to achieve alongside your budget as well as your lifestyle before making your final decision.
If you have a large family with young children, a hard wearing floor covering that can withstand knocks and scrapes is essential, while those with busy lifestyles will likely want a low-maintenance option.
Building a house from scratch will understandably give you a blank canvas, but choosing flooring for your existing home requires a little more consideration. You may want to choose something that suits the vernacular of your home (if you live in a period home, for example), or take into account the floor coverings that appear elsewhere in your property before making the final decision.
Luxury vinyl tile (LVT) is a popular choice with many homeowners and is often suitable for use all around the home.
Here are five great reasons you should choose LVT for your home.
LVT is often chosen for commercial applications, so can easily withstand heavy foot traffic in a domestic environment. More hardwearing than natural materials, LVT is scratch resistant making it a fine choice for households with young children or pets. You can choose different thicknesses of LVT so do speak to your chosen retailer to find out which is best for your home.
2. Scope of Design
LVT is available in a wide range of colours, patterns and finishes, meaning there is a suitable option for every room in every home. You can even emulate the finish of natural materials with LVT, allowing you to get the look of solid wood, for example, for a fraction of the price.
Amtico's Spacia, Form and Signature LVT ranges offer a solution for every home.
- The Spacia range is practical, durable and tough. All Amtico Spacia products come with a 25-year warranty
- The Form range features 36 beautiful wood and stone designs, which suit both modern and traditional spaces
- The premium Signature collection features a range of designs and laying patterns and is suited to those wanting to create a unique look in their home.
3. Underfloor Heating Compatible
If you have underfloor heating, LVT is a great choice of floorcovering. Amtico's LVT is compatible with underfloor heating systems up to 27 degrees and will create a warm and comfortable feeling underfoot.
4. Water Resistance
Offering good water and slip resistance, LVT is a safe and suitable solution for both bathrooms and kitchens.
5. Easy Cleaning and Maintenance
LVT is easy to clean and requires very little in terms of maintenance so is a great option for those with busy lifestyles. A regular sweep, occasional mop and an annual deep clean will keep LVT looking good.
