If you’re looking to install vinyl flooring in your home, you probably would like a mix of looks, versatility, and durability. Karndean flooring is a multi-purpose and hassle-free option for your floors.

What is Karndean flooring?

Karndean is an engineered alternative to wood flooring, composed of calcium carbonate (limestone), polyvinyl chloride, and various colours. It is made from five layers including two PVC layers, one photographic layer, one transparent PVC layer and a top protective coating.

Regardless of the technical jargon, here are 8 reasons why Karndean flooring is the best choice for your home:

  1. Karndean flooring provides distinctive ‘wood-like’ grain and knot details without practical difficulties posed by using traditional wood flooring.

  1. Real wood products vary in quality and can expand, warp, and shrink due to moisture. Karndean flooring keeps its shape over time.
  1. Typically laminates and engineered woods are known for appearing unrealistic. Karndean uses expert manufacturing techniques to beautifully replicate all the assets of real wood.
  1. Water can cause the top layer of your normal laminate or hardwood floor to de-laminate and peel, but Karndean flooring is water-resistant and ideal for use in any room of your home, including kitchens and bathrooms.

  1. Say goodbye to cold feet! Karndean flooring is warmer than other types of laminate and engineered flooring and is also suitable for underfloor heating.
  1. If you’re prone to slips, compared to other flooring types such as stone and wood, Karndean flooring often provides a better grip when wet or for your pups who love to skid about!

  1. Clean up your mess in a jiffy: Karndean flooring is more hygienic than other floorings because there are no fibres to hold bacteria or dust mites; simply spray and wipe away!
  1. If your Karndean flooring becomes damaged, you can simply replace a single tile or plank without having to replace the entire floor.
