Emily Turro sent us the following question:
I have 4 very active children under 10 and I want to replace the very worn carpet in a well used room in the house. It doubles as a play room for my 4 children and entertaining room (which we do a lot of). I want a wood effect or vinyl floor that is easy to clean and will continue to look good for years to come. If you can provide a few options with various price ranges and benefits it would be appreciated.
We have come up with four different options for you which should hopefully suit your criteria! All these are a PVC tile/plank (vinyl flooring) which will provide a hard wearing, long lasting and easy to clean surface at various price points and installation ease!
- Flexo - Fabulous budget range of PVC planks that are self adhesive and easy to install yourselves. Starting from £8.99m2 and coming with a 10 year wear guarantee this range has 5 colours to choose from and is available for next day delivery.
- Spacia - Another stylish and practical, easy to maintain option with a 15 year guarantee under the "Amtico" brand umbrella. This range of flooring requires a little more floor preparation and is usually installed by an Amtico approved fitter either onto a freshly screeded or 6mm ply wooded floor. However once it is in you can rest safe in the knowledge it will need only a quick mop to keep it looking great!
- Eletile - have several ranges pricing from just £22.69m2 and can be installed yourself. Rather than being stuck directly to the sub floor with little or no floor preparation they adhere to each other creating a perfect floating floor with guarantees of up-to 25 Years! Perfect for DIY installation.
The designers choice if you want to make the room really special is the Amtico Collection. With over 200 colours and styles to choose from you can create a bespoke look tailor made for your room. From £59.00m2 this floor comes with a 20 year fully transferable guarantee and like "Spacia" will need little more than a mop.
All the above come in a wide range of colours which you can browse through at our flooring shop. If you would like further advice please don't hesitate to get in touch.
