Winter is showing no signs of stopping just yet, and neither is the trend for creating the ultimate cosy spaces in our homes. Bringing much needed warmth, cosy homeware can transform a plain room into somewhere inviting, allowing you to escape the freezing weather outside in style, embracing the chill from a comfortable burrow.
The foundation of any room, the floor plays a huge part in the overall look and feel of the space, so it is the perfect point to start from if you’re looking for ideas for a winter makeover. Need more convincing? Here are three reasons why LVT is a fantastic option to help you transform your home.
LVT is warm underfoot
One of the features that make LVT so unique is comfort. Unlike natural stone or ceramic alternatives, Amtico’s LVT is warm and soft underfoot. Thanks to its multiple layering technology, it provides a cushioning effect making every step a joy.
Gone are the days of chilly feet or incessant sock wearing, LVT is a great choice for any room in the house – particularly those spaces where we want to feel comfortable and snug, like the bedroom or the living room.
Keeping your feet and home warm and cosy throughout the year with ease, our LVT tiles are the perfect flooring companion.
LVT is compatible with underfloor heating (up to 27 Degrees)
The most effective way to warm up your floor is to install underfloor heating. A must-have for the modern home, underfloor heating distributes the heat evenly and consistently below the surface. It’s also more efficient than radiators as it gently warms the room without wasting energy, therefore being a better option for the environment and a more cost-effective solution for you. Besides, there’s nothing quite as luxurious as stepping out of bed in the morning onto a wonderfully warm floor!
Amtico’s LVT is expertly designed to work with underfloor heating systems. Unlike real wood or stone, LVT is more flexible and can contract and expand as the temperature of the room changes. This means you can have peace of mind that your floor won’t warp or crack as is often the way with natural materials. Our LVT layers also allow heat to pass through to your feet with ease, meaning underfloor heating will warm up quickly and expand across the room in no time.
LVT comes in a rich variety of warm colours
It’s no secret the colours and materials we choose to decorate with affect how we feel. According to colour psychology, shades on the blue side of the spectrum make us feel calm and serene, while red and orange energise and stimulate us.
Visual warmth can trick our brains into feeling cosier and more comfortable – and this also applies to the floor. Rich shades of wood give a room depth and interest, instantly turning it into a cocooning space. From the golden hues of Honey Oak to the strong cocoa embosses of Sanctuary Grain, we have an extensive collection of wood-effect LVT, combining the warmth and elegance of timber with durability and practicality.
