What Hard Flooring Should You Choose?

August 1, 2018

Hard floors have become really popular over the last few years, they look great, clean well and can help people who suffer from allergies in the house.

But what hard floor should you choose? There is such an extensive choice it can be hard to understand what is right for your home. Here is a guide on the most popular options:

Real wood floor

A real wood floor looks amazing in every setting and can work with a modern home or more classic home. Wood floors are valued for their warmth and can even add value to a home. They are expensive but they will last if they are cared for properly.

Real wood floors can be hard to fit and you’ll need to lay the floor on a surface that is sound, dry and flat which can be problematic for some homes if the surface isn’t flat or you’re in a rush to lay the floor.

Vinyl Flooring

Vinyl flooring is known for its hard wearing properties and ease of keeping clean. This would be a perfect choice for a household with children or pets. You can choose a number of effects with vinyl from stone, to wood to slate and it’s totally waterproof and resistant to dust mites.

Amtico flooring have been making vinyl floors for over 50 years and can offer a huge range of options when choosing your floor surface.

Engineered wood

Engineered wood has three or four layers to it, a solid oak top layer, a softwood core and a strengthening bottom layer which makes this kind of flooring cheaper than real wood and can make it hard to tell it apart from the real thing. This can be a really good option if you want the look of real wood but not the price tag.


A laminate floor can be a really good option if you have children or pets as it’s a very highly durable surface and is easy to keep clean. Laminate has had a bad name but there are lots of brilliant effect options from wood, to stone and tiles.

What surface do you have in your home?
