Compare Karndean & Amtico over other floors

Karndean & Amtico v Other Floors

How does Karndean & Amtico Design flooring compare with other flooring such as laminate, carpet, ceramic tiles, sheet vinyl and real wood and stone floors? This guide is designed to help you make the right choice.

Karndean & Amtico v Wood

  • Karndean & Amtico give you all the visual qualities of natural wood, but without difficulties. Natural timber comes in varying quality and can expand, warp and shrink. Design flooring maintains its shape throughout its lifetime.
  • Wood is susceptible to temperature changes, and if it gets wet you can be in real trouble.
  • Karndean & Amtico can handle changes in temperature and spills of water.

Karndean & Amtico v Stone, Marble and Ceramics

  • Natural stone can be hard to manage and weight can be a problem, especially if you want to fit upstairs. Karndean & Amtico is much lighter, flexible and easier to install.
  • Karndean & Amtico's floors are warmer – the cold touch of stone and marble can be a bit off-putting in cold weather.
  • Textures can help to avoid slippery surfaces, especially in areas which get wet, like the bathroom, kitchen, hall or utility.

Karndean & Amtico v Carpet

There are some big practicalities of Karndean & Amtico over carpet.

  • Karndean & Amtico are easier to clean, especially if you are busy, have children or pets to clear up after. So you can keep your floor looking good for longer.
  • Our floors do not harbour dust mites or bacteria - unlike carpets.
  • Karndean & Amtico are easy and simple to keep clean.
  • Our residential guarantees start from 12 years and rise to 20 years for the Art Select and Da Vinci premium ranges. It's hard to find a carpet with such durability.
  • Karndean & Amtico can be laid over under floor heating systems.
  • In the unlikely event of damage it is possible to replace a plank or tile of Karndean or Amtico is a huge advantage over carpet which would need to be completely replaced.

If you really want carpet, then we don't have a woolly version of Karndean or Amtico but you could be surprised by the warmth and comfort of our floors.

Karndean & Amtico v Laminates and Vinyls

  • Karndean & Amtico just isn't in the same league as laminates and vinyls. Quite simply the quality, colour, finish, effects and guarantee are much better.
  • Many man made materials, including laminate, can curl or shrink whereas Design flooring maintains its shape throughout its lifetime.
  • Karndean & Amtico are hard wearing.
