Luxury Vinyl – Amtico, Karndean or Moduleo Flooring?

1st August 2013

Moduleo flooring is taking the luxury vinyl market by storm.

Why would you choose a luxury vinyl floor over a laminate or real wood floor? There are many reasons we would recommend a vinyl over real wood or laminate, but of course it all depends on your requirements and of course your budget. Firstly, it will come down to the vinyl product that you choose. The world of flooring has changed dramatically over the last few decades especially in the world of laminates and luxury vinyl. Here at First Floors in Giffnock, we are always keeping up with the trends and latest products on the market. We sell Amtico,Karndean and Moduleo and they all have their benefits but the product that we sell the most of, and which we believe is the most cost efficient is Moduleo flooring. Of course many people have brand loyalty to Amtico or Karndean and have used this product before, and that’s no problem as it’s all about being happy with the end product. But when it comes to Moduleo this is the product that is taking the market by storm. Moduleo flooring is a fantastic luxury vinyl originating from Belgium. With this product you can really let your artistic and creative side flow. The great thing about Moduleo is that they have an outstanding range of stone and wood designs for you to choose from. Just imagine your bathroom with a gorgeous Latin pine floor. Vinyl products now are state of the art in how they are made, so they are incredibly convincing copies of the real thing. We have many people coming into the store looking for a wood but ending up with vinyl as you struggle to see the difference at first sight. The beauty of vinyl products is that they are totally waterproof. If you have a busy house then you needn’t worry about splashes and your floor getting wet giving you the look you want plus peace of mind. Moduleo is also extremely durable and heard wearing. It is scuff and scratch proof and you can use most cleaning products on it! There is a unique structure to Moduleo which comprises of 8 layers. The clever composition of the product gives it a beautiful feel underfoot and almost like the real thing. Here at First Floors we have the full range for you to see. All samples are large and will give you a better idea what the product will look like on a bigger scale, rather than the small samples which are just not enough to get an idea of what the final finish will be. In addition we have the floor laid in our store so you can really get a feel for how it looks and feels underfoot. Each plank and tile in the Moduleo range is individual which in turn, when it is installed and down on the floor, will make it look so natural and will give you a truly stunning floor. The benefits of a luxury vinyl of this standard are exceptional. There are two types to choose from. There is dry back which has to be stuck to your subfloor a bit like a mosaic and the click version. The click we would say is our best seller, as it clicks just like a laminate and does not require to be stuck down, making it ideal over most subfloor surfaces. It’s also easy to fit, so keeps the fitting costs down. Visit our website for our amazing special offers, or visit us in store for the most up to date details on our discounts to ensure your home looks stunning. Remember, you can choose from Amtico, Karndean or Moduleo – all fabulous ranges.

Jim Hillier 1st June 2022

Absolutely Delighted with the Conduct and Quality of Work. My Wife and I decided to replace our Bedroom Carpet and lay down wooden flooring for our Hall. We noticed that there was a possible supplier for flooring at first floors shop on Fenwick Road. We met up with David and Graham and explained that we were looking for quality products for both Items. We were shown flooring possibilities from their extensive range of designs and thicknesses and soon found a product that we were interested in. We were delighted to find out that they had carpet selections at the back of the shop which surprised us; you could not appreciate the size of the place from the shop front! We chose a carpet that we thought met our specifications and were given a reasonable sized sample to take home to see how it would look in our room taking into account of our particular lighting conditions. First Floors sent out a guy to take measurements for floor, accessory fittings and carpet.
Being very happy with the proposition given to us and estimates of work completion dates and prices we went ahead with the order. Graham kept us updated with the schedule and I am happy to say that the work was carried out on time and was completed to a very high quality with which we were both delighted with.
I would be happy to reference this company for anyone who is interested in upgrading their floors or replacing carpets.

Alastair Barrie 2nd June 2022

Good selection, service and fitting.We were able to take home some samples to select the carpet that was just right for our room. There was a delay in our furniture arriving and First Floors were very accommodating in putting our fitting date back to suit. The fitting went very well indeed - couldn’t have been easier.

Olive Leitch 1st May 2022

Excellent service from First Floors. All staff including fitters have been helpful and gave a friendly professional service. My new stair carpet has been fitted very well and already received many complements

Linda McBrearty 27th April 2022

Excellent service with care. On our first visit to the showroom, David advised and helped us with our choice but never rushed us and gave us lots of confidence in making our final choice of engineered wooden flooring. Our new build home was delayed for a few months and during this time David and his team waited patiently with us until the flooring was able to be fitted! The fitting throughout our new house was more than excellent. The care and attention to detail was everything we could have hoped for, our thanks to the fitting team. We would have no hesitation in recommending First Floors, their professionalism and customer service was 100%.

Anna Smylie April 2021

Fantastic service. David gave me great advice on which flooring would be most suitable for my business premises. Within the week Steven came to fit the flooring and, as promised, was in and out in a day. Can’t recommend this local Company enough. Anna Smylie ZuZu Giffnock.

We recently purchased engineered oak flooring and carpets from First Floors. The customer service from David and team was exceptional. We had just moved home from overseas and bought a house with no floors so we did not have access to allow First Floors to measure. Theye allowed us to use our own measurements as we wanted the floors laid ASAP once we had the keys. The floor is beautiful and laid very professionally (thanks Steven). The carpets are also lovely and exactly what I wanted. The only thing I would change about the experience would be to have First Floors assess the house in advance. We have fire doors which were a problem the day the carpets were laid. This was not the issue of First Floors and it was resolved quickly. Thanks again David, we would highly recommend First Floors to anyone.

Ian and Lesley Proctor January 2022

Another Great Job Done!!
Just had our third floor project in seven years completed by First Floors once again.
Great service from David and his showroom team from assisting in the selection of materials through to arranging the installation. Chris and his team worked tidily and efficiently on the hardwood flooring with great attention to detail. Gordon who fitted the stair carpet was very professional in his work and was able to resolve some problematic details to our entire satisfaction.
Would definitely recommend First Floors.

Gavin Reid 18/08/20

We recently had First Floors install laminate flooring in our lounge and hallway and are absolutely delighted with the final result! It has been finished to a high standard with great attention to detail.

Having had a rough idea of what we were looking for, David helped find the perfect flooring for both rooms.

We were booked in quickly and kept informed throughout the process.

We would definitely recommend and use again.

Christine Sharp 23/08/20
