The words ‘dining room’ conjure up different meanings for various people. For some, it's a separate room in a home. For others, it's a dedicated area within a larger open-plan space, perhaps a family kitchen or lounge-diner. Whatever ‘dining room’ means to you, many of the flooring considerations will be the same and luxury vinyl tile (LVT) is a great choice, from both a design and a practicality viewpoint.
Here are some of the key reasons why we believe LVT is a practical and excellent choice for your dining room.
A dining room is an important room in a home, and it can be a very busy one. It’s where families sit together to enjoy a meal, where guests are entertained and bigger celebrations are held at birthdays, Christmas, Easter and other key times of the year. Sometimes these celebrations can start and end in the dining room with everyone socialising around the table well into the evening, so a dining room needs the right ambience.
Plenty of choice
With Amtico’s LVT collections, there’s so much choice compared with natural materials.
You could opt for the richness of a wood grain in a classic laying pattern, such as this premium Amtico Signature Farmhouse Oak design in a Plank Weave pattern which beautifully complements the wooden dining furniture and helps create a feeling of authenticity in the room.
Or how about exploring an abstract design in a range of finishes to add a touch of dining room opulence. Signature’s Chroma Black in a Block Weave laying pattern is ideal for a more modern approach to a dining room floor. It has lustrous silver highlights and a deep black base that enhance multi-tones in dining furniture for a stylish room that makes a great entertaining space. Just think about sitting back and relaxing once dinner has been served. And because LVT is comfortable and warm underfoot, you might not want to get up and move to the lounge!
LVT for traditional and modern spaces
Access to so much choice is just one of the many benefits of LVT for a dining room floor design. The option to have LVT laid in so many different ways and to combine traditional and modern designs can help to make your space unique. If your dining area sits within a kitchen- or lounge-diner, you might like to pick this area out and create a focal point within the floor design. Amtico Signature provides so many ways for you to use borders, motifs or a change in laying pattern to highlight this area, or the option to introduce a contrasting product altogether. For example, creating a dining zone using Amtico’s new Victorian-inspired LVT collection, Amtico Décor, in Classic Azure is an eye-catching way to add authentic detail and a heritage feel to an open-plan kitchen.
A practical choice for the dining room
Anyone who has a young family themselves will be thankful for LVT.
LVT is very easy to clean, maintain and keep looking as good as new – a quick sweep and a regular light mop are all that’s needed. Spillages are easy to wipe up and LVT’s hard-wearing surface is waterproof and stain resistant – it’s the perfect floor to sit beneath a dining table.
Chairs moving in and out aren’t a problem either because Amtico LVT has a durable wear layer that protects against scratches and scuffs. And in addition to all this are our long-lasting warranties – lifetime for Amtico Signature and 25 years with Amtico Spacia.
LVT is great throughout your home but it’s a high quality and durable option in a dining area because it’s a space that’s used frequently and enjoyed by many as they spend time catching up on daily life over a great meal.
