Choosing new flooring is an important decision and it is crucial that you get it right as you don’t want to be unhappy with your choice only a few months after having it laid. If you love the look stone or wood but can’t afford to spend that much and don’t like the idea of a cold floor in a morning then consider going for Karndean flooring as an alternative!
Karndean flooring is a highly durable form of vinyl that is designed to replicate the exquisite beauty created by natural flooring, particularly that of stone or wood, but without the drawbacks associated with these materials. This type of flooring replicates its natural counterparts to perfection but without the maintenance or cost that comes with going for stone or wood.
Each plank or tile of Karndean is carefully designed to make it look as unique and authentic as possible so that the end result looks natural and not in any way manufactured. Multiple shades and tones of colour are used to give it that natural appearance but because it is made of vinyl, it is much warmer, easier to maintain and practical around the home while providing just as much character that would have been gained though laying wood or stone.
There are hundreds of different designs, styles and colours to choose from so it doesn’t matter what you’re after, how simplistic or sophisticated you want your floor to look, there is something that will suit your needs.
Karndean flooring is also a highly practical option. Stone and wood floors are unsuitable for areas that often get wet, such as bathrooms and kitchens, due to their porous nature, and often require regular upkeep in order to maintain them. Neither of these are something faced with Karndean flooring, due to it being made from vinyl, meaning that it can be used in kitchens and bathroom happily and is easily cleaned with a mop. It doesn’t need much in the way of maintenance either, something that can cause disruption to households, and it is well suited to being laid over the top of underfloor heating.
This is also a highly durable form of flooring whereby it is very unlikely that damage will be sustained. If such an event does occur, however, it is easy for a tile or plank to be lifted and replaced. This is much more beneficial than when a roll of carpet, linoleum or sheet vinyl is laid whereby, if damaged, the only options are to live with it or to replace the whole room’s floor covering.
