DIY Flooring Essentials Guide

Carpet tiles, LVT or Laminate flooring?

Before you begin any project you need to start thinking about which floor type is best suited to the environment that you have. Here at DCTUK you can buy carpet tiles, luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) or laminate flooring.

Carpet tiles are the most affordable option with our entry level carpet tile Nouveau Urban priced at just £1.89 per tile in our sale. Carpet tiles are a very versatile option - and can suit most rooms. Laminate is also a very affordable option and we stock the very popular Solido Elite laminate collection.

Finally we have LVT - a technologically advanced flooring option that has the durability of laminate but with the flexibility and ease of installation as carpet tiles.

Got questions? The team here at DCTUK are here to help. Just call us on 0345 222 1544 or Livechat with us.
