Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) continues to be the flooring of choice for homeowners, especially as it’s durable, easy to clean and maintain, and offers many design possibilities

Karndean Design flooring have been supplying creative and stylish floors to a world-wide client base for more than 40 years, recreating the timeless elegance and authentic appearance of natural materials such as slate, marble and timber in a range of luxury vinyl flooring products. By listening to their customers and keeping a close eye on upcoming interior trends, Karndean can introduce new designs that suit current lifestyles.

Karndean have recently introduced an innovative rigid core collection, Korlok, which has all the durability and waterproof qualities of luxury vinyl in an easy to fit format. With 12 new authentic wood designs inspired by European and North American woods, Korlok can be laid over most hard floors or uneven subfloors without exposing imperfections underfoot. Its K-core technology, featuring a superior 5G vertical click locking mechanism, means it is easy to install with little upheaval and disruption to everyday life. Korlok’s pre-attached acoustic foam backing makes it ideal for reducing noise transfer to rooms below such as in bedrooms, playrooms, attic and loft conversions.

Creating a bespoke or individual floor is a big trend of late, especially using LVT. Karndean’s Kaleidoscope is a stunning geometric collection with a dedicated selection of hues, shapes and patterns, including cubes, hexagons, chevrons, and woven designs, that add wow factor to any room. Each Kaleidoscope floor has been individually cut from Karndean’s established wood and stone designs, including popular colourways from its Art Select, Da Vinci, Van Gogh, Opus and Knight tile ranges. Ideal as a standalone floor design or as a feature rug effect, the collection boasts the sophisticated and subtle chevron layout of Apex to the striking and statement 3D effects of Cubix and Pennon.

As homeowners increasingly look to grey to give their space a more contemporary feel, Karndean have updated their popular Art Select collection with four new wood designs, including the multi-grey hues of Storm Oak in matching full-length plank, parquet and basket weave formats. Full of charm and character, Art Select is recognised for featuring the most beautiful natural timber effects with intricate and realistic handcrafted embosses. This new, cool, ashy grey will be popular with those looking for a more modern vibe, as well as those who want to achieve the same colour floor throughout but with alternate formats to maintain cohesion, perhaps in multi-generational homes which are becoming more popular due to rising house costs.

Homeowners can explore various floor designs in 34 different room settings using Karndean’s Floorstyle Floor Designer tool, and their Augmented Reality (AR) app allows users to see what their favourite floors will look like in their very own home.
