Realistic effects and textures

First things first, let’s set the scene for a fresh new look. Tempted by warm wood tones, a cooler Scandi feel or a contemporary design? Luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) from Amtico come in an extensive range including realistic effects and textures to mimic wood and stone. Select from Amtico’s simple Spacia range, elegant Form or premium Signature collections.

As well as plank effects, wood-effect LVT flooring comes in herringbone and basket weave patterns and you can create parquet panels with a plain border – it also comes with a range of other patterns. Stone-effect LVT flooring in large or small tiles can be shuffled to create unique, subtle or bold laying patterns, or select chic hexagons for a standout bathroom. Whatever look you’re going for, there are plenty of patterns to choose from, in a wide range of colours.

Luxury vinyl tile flooring is durable

It’s not every day you change your flooring, so durability is important. You want your floor to stay looking as good as the day it was laid. LVT is made by heat-compressing several high-quality materials together to create extremely durable, flexible and versatile flooring.

Amtico’s advanced layering system helps to absorb sound, making it quiet underfoot. Unlike hard stone or wooden floors, it’s comfortable and warm if you walk across it with bare feet. And as a plus, Amtico luxury vinyl tile flooring is designed to work with underfloor heating systems and won’t crack or warp.

How to take care of vinyl flooring

With a busy family, spills and scuffs are the order of the day, but Amtico flooring is finished with a unique Quantum Guard Elite layer, designed to make it stain resistant, hygienic, waterproof and low maintenance.

For day-to-day cleaning, all that’s needed is a light sweep and a mop with Amtico Floorcare Maintainer. Once a year, give the floor a deep clean to remove ingrained dirt, using Amtico Floorcare Stripper followed by Amtico Floorcare Dressing. If the worst happens and you damage a tile, they’re easy to repair or replace.
