Whether you’re revamping existing décor, planning a whole new room such as an extension or loft conversion or self-building your dream home, flooring is one of the first elements to consider, as it has a huge impact on the finished look and feel.  

Specialists in luxury vinyl flooring, Amtico has a huge choice of premium, design-led planks and tiles and now its unique Signature collection offers even more with 65 new products that will transform your floor from the ordinary to the extraordinary. 

You can make your floor even more unique with your choice of laying pattern. The way your planks or tiles are arranged will have a huge impact on the finished look and feel and with the Signature collection, the options are endless. 

Pick your favourite with Designers’ Choice

With the Signature collection, you can personalise your space with your own product combinations and laying patterns or pick your favourite from Amtico’s Designers’ Choice. These pre-designed patterns and product combinations take the guesswork away, as the in-house design team has done all the hard work for you. The range of textures, tones, colours and patterns from the newly redesigned Signature palettes offers something for every space, with subtle and statement flooring to bring your room to life.  If you prefer to design your own, then the Signature collection has a wide range of laying patterns to choose from, perfect for expressing your inner interior designer.

But if you need a helping hand, here are four of the most popular laying patterns for kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms, living spaces, hallways and open-plan living… 


Available in both small and large designs, Parquet can be used for Amtico’s wood, stone and abstract luxury vinyl flooring. Sophisticated and elegant, this laying pattern has stood the test of time, as it’s as popular now as it was in the 1930s. Versatile and enduring, it looks stunning in both classic and contemporary interiors with 14 different Designers’ Choice laying patterns to select from.

Gable Parquet 

A choice of five mirrored wood patterns that make an instant impact, Gable Parquet is bold and beautiful with small-scale pieces reflected in four-part modules which, when laid together, create a striking floor with plenty of tonal variation for a feeling of depth and character.

With its rows of oscillating semi-circles, Arc is a high-impact pattern full of life and movement. Perfect for creating zones within your space, it looks especially striking paired with tonal designs such as Tempus. Curves are becoming increasingly popular for flooring with soft, circular shapes creating a fluid look. Available in three colours, it’s ideal for bathrooms and brings a retro look to any space.

Use stripping to define your space 

Zoning a space is a great way to break up an open-plan area into a multifunctional room for different activities. From cooking and dining to relaxing, entertaining and home working, one way to add definition is to use stripping lines to break up planks or tiles. These lines can be used to form a special grout style and are available in all collections in a choice of five sizes. 

Mix and match materials or patterns between spaces and use borders and simple perimeters with contrasting stripping to create visually stunning material breaks. From tile ‘rugs’ around the dining table or kitchen island to a statement focal point in the hallway or for the fire surround, it’s a quick and easy way to add impact.

Super-tough with a 1mm wear layer for long-lasting protection, it’s ultra-hygienic with antimicrobial technology built in and it comes with a lifetime warranty, so you can be sure your floor looks good for years to come.
