Floors of distinction

Create your perfect room with beautiful flooring as the centrepiece.

Family run, South West Carpets specialises in carpets and flooring, with a wide range of options to help you style your home, employing expert fitters with over 25 years’ experience in the flooring trade. We asked Demi, from South West Carpets, why they recommend Amtico over other flooring options: “Luxury Vinyl Tiles (LVT) are an investment, and we recognise this. A well-laid Amtico floor will last many more years than a carpet; it will be easier to clean than a natural product and can withstand a hectic home life.”

Made of resin and plasticisers compressed under high temperatures and pressures to produce a thin, highly durable, cost-effective product, LVT gives a closer finish to that of stone or wood flooring. When it comes to choosing your product and the design of your floor, the team at South West Carpets are with you from start to finish. Demi suggests when deciding on a laying pattern, scale is possibly the most critical factor: “The size, space and pattern should be compatible. A narrow hallway will suit a smaller scale pattern, like our Décor or Basket Weave laying pattern, while a larger space adapts well to bigger designs, like Flagstone.”

With specialist designers on-board, South West Carpets also offer advice on what may be popular in the coming years. “One of the main trends for 2022 is authenticity. People are looking for elements of craftsmanship and heritage in the products they choose. Textures play a big role in this, helping to give flooring longevity. Our new wood embosses in particular give LVT a beautifully aged, reclaimed look, with varied grains and lots of movement. Rustic and painterly features work together, blurring the lines between rural homes and urban spaces, adding warmth and cosiness to any room, regardless of its personality or style,” explains Demi.

As a premier Amtico retailer, South West Carpets is delighted to announce the installation of the Amtico One show area, the only one of its kind in the south west. Here you can view some of the most popular styles and patterns in stunning room settings.
