Gone are the days of thin sheets of a wood-effect or stone pattern, modern Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) is a versatile and customisable flooring material

LVT is a stunning flooring alternative with new designs in colours, patterns and textures which give engineered wood, stone and porcelain a run for their money. Practical and warm-to-touch, finishing a project with LVT is certainly worth the time exploring. 

Low Maintenance in High-traffic Areas

For modern families when it comes to choosing flooring it isn’t all down to design. There is a lot to consider, including for those with children or pets, and that’s where LVT comes into its own. Ticking all the boxes, LVT is water-resistant, hardwearing and durable, and therefore perfect for high-traffic areas like kitchens, bathrooms and hallways and usually comes with guarantees for at least one decade. 

Requiring little maintenance, LVT can be cleaned simply and easily with some warm water and doesn’t require any silicon sealant if fitted correctly.

LVT is Heating up the Competition

95% of Amtico’s products are designed and made in Britain, making them a sustainable choice of suppliers as the flooring carries less embodied carbon before it even reaches your home. For more information go to www.amtico.com

Many families are renovating and extending existing homes to bring them up to date with the latest mod cons. Underfloor heating (UFH) is one such luxury which is a staple in projects big and small, but the flooring you choose will massively impact how efficient and successful this installation will be.

Most LVT works incredibly well with UFH up to a temperature of 27ºc (most UFH is set at around 21ºc) but also offers a naturally warm feeling which is comfortable underfoot — anyone who has lived with natural stone or porcelain floors will certainly understand how important this can be!

Get the Style you Want

Huge leaps forward in LVT technology means realistic stone and wood effects can be created. More cost-effective than the real thing, the latest LVT collections are tactile and characterful, replicating the unique patina or grain of natural products. Some suppliers also offer room visualisers which means different styles can be tried and tested before any decisions are made.

Express Yourself

We spend more time in our homes than ever before and expressing your individual style is an essential aspect of any renovation, extension or self-build project. Cast aside thoughts of tacky linoleum rolls as modern LVT is fit as individual pieces, meaning a unique aesthetic can be customised in the rooms we use the most.
