Project Checklists

There's lots to think about when planning your new floor. We want you to get the most you can out of a visit to a retailer, so before you go, spend a little time thinking about the following hints and tips.

Our retailers are skilled at helping you select a floor for your living space. Here are a few tips to help you make the most of your visit. You may find it useful to also view Guide to choosing your Floor to inform your floor selection process.

Preparing for your retailer visit

Once you have selected your look, why not put together a mini project folder?

  1. Make a note of your favorite Karndean floors and finishing touches or print them off
  2. Then gather together any color references, wallpaper and paint swatches, wall tile and surface samples
  3. Why not take a couple of photos of your room with your mobile phone?
  4. Take some approximate measurements of your room(s)
  5. You may wish to do a rough sketch of your room shape, too. Don’t forget to note window and door positions and key items such as kitchen or bath units, fireplaces and built-in furniture. If it’s possible to see what’s under your current flooring surface, make a note of it e.g. wood, concrete and if it is fairly flat.

Find a Retailer

Then use our Find a Retailer tool to identify your local retailer and take your project folder along with you. They can skilfully guide you through the process, fine-tune your choices and take you from concept to reality!
