    hi there.

    I would like LVT in my hall, living room and dining room (or real wood but I have young children so not sure if it’s practical?). I priced Amtico but it’s way out of my price range. A local floor company has said Luvanto is a good option and gave me a great price. Is it too good to be true or will I be buying cheap buying twice? Any advice would be really appreciated as I’m 200 pages deep on Google trying to research and I don’t have a clue

    I have an older property so I would like to keep with that look ideally so nothing too modern looking. In the Luvanto range, I’m looking at country oak herringbone.

    If it helps, my sizes are

    Dining room: 3.6mx 5.3m
    Living room: 3.8m x 4.2m
    Hall (l-shape): 1.5mx 3.6m and 0.8x2.4m

    Ideally, I want to spend under £2500. They have quoted me under that excluding screeding. Amtico was more than double that but I know it is known for better quality. Karndean Van Gogh was slightly out my range too but I would save for a while longer if need be.

    Thank you so much for any advice. I can’t afford to do this twice so want to make the right choice. :)

    Luvanto is not bad at all. Fitted a fair amount of it in the herringbone and it's not bad for the price for what it is but I wish they would add a few more variety of patterns within the mix of planks. Did a job in the ebony, pearl and priory oak which looked good.

    If you can save for the Van gogh though then do it, VG is a nice flooring and one of the favourites, far much better than Luvanto.

    thanks so much for taking the time to reply. I appreciate it. I got confused - it’s not Van Gogh I’ve been quoted on - it’s Da Vinci (too many Italian painters!). Is Van Gogh pricier than Da Vinci, I take it?

    Too late, I’ve been overthinking for months. I’m Scottish - finding it hard to part with my cash ;)

    Do you mean just go for Luvanto or just go for it in general?

    Also, I forgot to mention he also suggested a brand Authentic Herringbone. Have you heard of this? It’s not waterproof though.

    Honestly Luvanto is decent for the money, if the price is right for you go for it.

    Da Vinci is nice aswell but remember they are only 3" wide planks, depending where you source your flooring from DV is slightly more a m2 but not a lot.
