Can't find an LVT floor I like

I wrote a post a little while back about how I hated my new herringbone glue down LVT floor. I made the sickening decision to get it redone and the flooring place kindly said that they would do it at cost price. I have spent weeks now searching , buying samples, even buying boxes of floor and nothing seems right. I need a warm colour (not too light, not too dark that will go with oak doors). I literally have run out of options. I am now even considering other flooring types but just don't know enough about anything. Anyone any suggestions? I've tried karndean, amtico, polyflor and moduleo.

we got our LVT from Tapi carpets and love it, they have colours that are specific to them so perhaps worth a look.

I really sympathise, I spent months and months looking for the right LVT for our kitchen/dining area. Many places let me borrow the sample boards overnight and some places were able to give me a dozen or more pieces left over from other jobs theyíd done. I sent for samples but 1 or 2 pieces werenít enough to get the overall effect. It was definitely worth all the agonising in the end as I love the one I finally chose. Only problem I have now is I canít find a dining table that matches 🤣

Thanks everyone, I think the problem is I quite liked my old flooring but had to change it as we made the space open plan and wanted continuous flooring. The old floor was here when I moved in and it was a warm colour that matched in with the doors and furniture. I have found LVT floors that are warm but they seem to be light and more orange (old floor was mid tone with a red tone). I am literally obsessing with this but can't seem to find a solution. Thanks for your suggestions. Just so frustrated because when I find a photo of one I like, all other photos of the same floor look different! X

What colour type / shade is your floor? I bought a new dining room table last year and I'm desperate for the new floor to match in with that too!

I liked lots of the Amtico and Karndean flooring but when we put them on the floor they were two orangey/golden, I wanted more of an industrial colouring. In the end we chose Polyflor Camaro Cambridge Parquet and itís perfect for us. Iím sure youíll find the right one for you soon, hopefully it wonít take as long as it took me 😂

Rather than match can you have a complete contrast?

I quick Google shows some 'oak' as more grey. Would that work?

Finally it may be easier to just change the doors to match a floor you like. The floor you'll see in every room from every angle/seat. The doors not so much.

I have that flooring all through my downstairs with the graphite edging. Itís beautiful and so hard wearing. There are four of us plus two dogs in the house and itís still immaculate after 4 years.
