How to choose the right kind of luxury vinyl tiles for your home.

If you’re looking for style and substance then look no further than luxury vinyl tiles. Not only do they offer all the hard wearing and easy cleaning qualities of vinyl, but it comes with the style of real wood, marble and an extensive range of expensive flooring. But how do you choose with LVT brand to go with?

The two most popular brands of LVT we have here in Welch Mill Carpets is Karndean and Amtico. So we want compare the two to help you make a informed choice when you come to purchase some LVT.

Which luxury vinyl tiles to choose?

Both of these brands are huge names in their own rights and they have both been pioneers in the LVT  and flooring game. This can make is difficult when it comes to choosing between them, but carry on reading if you need some help deciding!

One of the most important factors when it comes to flooring (for most people) is budget and cost. The Karndean tiles start from just over £19 per square mile, however Amtico starts around £5 more at £24 per square meter. On the opposite end, if we’re talking the most expensive tiles, then Karndean is still the cheapest.

Next, you’re probably going to be looking for something hard wearing and extremely durable. This one can be a hard factor to test. But we think due to Karndean’s K Guard + being awarded the highest wear level possible. However, Amtico’s flooring tiles do include a range of different wear layer sizes which can be customised depending on your needs.

A factor that is coming up more in recent times is how environmentally friendly the flooring is. Karndean and Amtico have both pushed to be as eco friendly as possible, however the front runner in the green race is Amtico. Their LVT collections have been certified for low chemical emissions, and are completely phthalate free!
