Need to replace the flooring in the kitchen / diner and also the hallway. Currently have laminate in hall and kitchen part with carpet in dining area. Debating which one of these to go for. Anyone got any experience of them? Are they easy to clean / maintain? Advice online seems to be conflicting. I understand a good fit is the key!

We have karndean in hall and long lounge it's dark and long planks winter oak I think.

It looks lovely but please be aware it scratches ALOT easier than we ever conceived. You will need felt pads on everything.

Oh no! We've just ordered Karndean for the hallway as we thought it was supposed to be scratch resistant. We have two dogs who charge around and decided that wooden flooring would look terrible very quickly. Have we made the wrong decision?

We had Karndean in our last house for many years, with a large dog and children. Very little marking or scratching from dog or children playing, although some where chairs were shuffled backwards and forwards whilst being sat on. I'd say it's really hardwearing stuff.

Just ordered Karndean - friends have it and it looks fab. No scratches.

Thanks everyone. Very helpful. I expecting it to scratch a bit but hoping that if we get the wood effect it will show less smile

Resurrecting this thread again. Anyone else had any experiences to compare Moduleo, Karndean and Amtico? Some of the online reviews for Moduleo don't look great but they do seem to have a great range and I've also heard that Amtico is hugely overpriced.

Look at Polyflor too. We had their school oak in our old bathroom. I do think the textured lvt is less prone to scratching - we have Amtico in the hallway of our new place, obviously expensive as it's laid in a pattern and at least 15 years old I'd say, but it is scratched to glory.

You can also get commercial grade stuff - have a look online or visit a retailer which supplies several brands. That is thicker and stands up to lots of wear and tear.

We have amtico and it is bloody amazing. We have a wheelchair and hoist going over it all the time!!!
