Celebrating the beauty and benefits of premium vinyl flooring

We are proud to offer our customers a range of quality luxury vinyl flooring from well-known manufacturers Karndean and Amtico – read on, to discover why vinyl is a great choice for your home: 

Why choose vinyl flooring – the practical benefits

Vinyl flooring is an extremely sensible and functional choice for application throughout the home – here’s why:

•    Water and stain-resistant
Vinyl is ideal for use in locations where spills may occur, such as bathrooms, kitchens and utility rooms

•    Low maintenance and easy to clean
Vinyl flooring is incredibly easy to keep clean with the right cleaning products which makes it perfect for rooms and spaces which directly connect with outside areas, such as entrance hallways and rooms which open onto gardens and patios

•    Hardwearing and durable
The resilience of vinyl flooring means that it is perfect for entrance ways, foyers and anywhere that is subjected to high footfall.  Amtico Signature comes with a lifetime guarantee and Spacia comes with a 25 year residential guarantee. 

•    Compatible with foil underfloor heating
With the addition of foil underfloor heating, vinyl floors will be pleasant and cosy under foot in the colder months, which makes it a great choice for bedrooms, bathrooms and living areas as an alternative to carpet

•    Quick and easy to install 
Many competent DIY-ers take on the installation of vinyl products themselves, but if a professional is required then this is available through Tilemates, a registered Amtico trained installer.

Vinyl flooring style advice

As discussed, vinyl is practical as well as affordable and because it is available in a plethora of designs and size options it allows homeowners to achieve a range of looks in their properties – read on for interior inspiration with vinyl flooring:

•    Natural stone-effect 
Both Karndean and Amtico offer flooring which resembles the look of classic and timeless natural stone tiles, such as slate, limestone, travertine and marble. 

•    Timber floors
Capturing the charm and character of natural wood, Karndean and Amtico provide an expansive selection of wood-effect flooring, covering everything from rustic and distressed ‘floorboards’ to more polished variants which are reminiscent of timber parquet, in a palette of shades spanning pale honey and grey to deeper tones.   

•    Plain styles, tiles and geometric designs for contemporary interiors
Amtico offers a selection of plain or patterned flooring as well as decorative borders and intricate geometric motifs which can be used to define open plan areas whilst adding visual interest to a space; Karndean’s ceramic-effect flooring gives all the style of a tile including realistic grout strips.
