Why amtico is a great choice for your kitchen floor
The modern kitchen is so much more than a place to cook – today the kitchen is the true heart of the home, somewhere for the family to meet, eat and socialise. So when it comes to choosing a kitchen floor, it needs to combine a lot of different qualities – durability, functionality and ease of maintenance. This is why many of us tend to go for tiles or a laminate or wood floor to stand up to all those clattering feet and kitchen spills – it simply makes sense to avoid carpet.
Ceramic tiles vs Amtico
The last thing many of us would consider is vinyl with its reputation for poor wear and downright ugliness. But vinyl has come a long way, and with the introduction of luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) like Amtico that are incredibly easy to lay, it’s an excellent option for your kitchen.
Drop a saucepan on ceramic tiles and they’re likely to crack, involving expensive repairs. It’s difficult to damage an LVT tile, but if you do, the repair is simple and seamless. Another big plus is the look and feel of Amtico, especially when used with underfloor heating to create real warmth underfoot. And it’s beautifully durable and easy to maintain too, keeping its looks long after tiles have cracked and worn.
What are the options?
Amtico comes in a range of finishes that accurately mimic wood and stone. The only limit to how the tiles or planks are laid is your imagination – go crazy with pattern or create different zones in a large room by combining different colours of tile or tones of wood.
LVT is incredibly hard wearing so doesn’t show scuffs and marks like a real wood floor. And when Marks and Spencer use LVT for the flooring in their stores, you know it must be good quality and exceptionally durable.
Boring or beautiful?
With a huge range of finishes to choose from, LVT is an exciting new flooring choice for high traffic areas, proving durability and functionality can be stylish too. So why not banish boring and think beautiful in your kitchen?
