Karndean

For over 40 years, Karndean has been creating versatile, practical and attractive luxury vinyl flooring inspired by the natural, tactile properties of wood grain and stone.

The business began with a young entrepreneur, Mike Walker, in 1972, who wanted to create beautiful flooring products with quality, customisation, good looks and durability at their centre. Now, it has branches in the US and Europe, and a range inspired by nature’s textures, classical artists and now, new for 2019, its Heritage Collection, evoking the rich colours and elaborately tiled floors of grand Victorian townhouses and villas.

Suitable for any space in your home, Karndean floors come in a variety of subtle colourations echoing natural materials from all around the world such as soapstone and marble, driftwood and pine. Jersey Limestone, for example, is mottled with warm tones of grey, honey and sand, while Bleached Tasmanian oak brings the clean, fresh feel of the beach into your home.

Offering a lifetime guarantee, Karndean floors are strong, child-friendly, waterproof, environmentally sound, supremely comfortable underfoot, and compatible with underfloor heating. Their multi-layered construction is engineered to deliver a lifetime’s worth of durable good looks.

Gorgeous to look at and walk on, hard-wearing and practical, Karndean offers three installation options:

Gluedown
Individual tiles with bevelled edges, bespoke design options and handcrafted embosses. A dry, flat subfloor is a must, as is professional installation.

LooseLay
Using a unique friction-grip backing, this floor delivers superb temporary or permanent flooring solutions with no adhesive required, and excellent soundproofing properties. Great for families who change flooring often.

Rigid Core

This is a click-locking floating floor that works with uneven subfloors to deliver good sound and heat insulation, and provides a good alternative to laminate and engineered hardwoods. With a pre-attached backing, it can go straight down with no separate underlay required, and quick installation an added bonus.
