5 Simple Steps to Choosing Your New Floor

Although choosing a new floor for your home can be a stressful, hair-pulling journey, it doesn't have to be! Check out our top 5 tips to help you find the best floor for your space, your needs, and your style.

1. What style suits your home and your personal taste? Classic and traditional? Shabby chic? Contemporary? Modern?   

Have a look at our Inspiration pages for style ideas, create mood boards, and play around with our wide range of floors in different room settings with our interactive room viewer, Floorstyle.

2. What look are you after - woodstone or something Iconic and different? 

From distressed and hand-crafted timbers and natural stone looks to unique mosaic and pebble designs, we offer such a wide range of options that you're bound to find the perfect floor to suit your space and your style. What's more, no matter what design you go with all of our floors are highly durable, easy to care for, and guaranteed for many, many years to come.

3. How much natural light does the room get? Which color tones would suit your room best?

Lighter wood planks and stone tiles bring a fresh, spacious feel to living spaces and can help brighten up the darker areas of your home with fewer windows, while mid-wood planks and stone tiles can be a good match to neutral color schemes as well as adding warmth. If you want to add rich depth and a bit of luxury to your space, darker wood tones and stones will help you get just the look you're going for.

4. What plank or tile sizes would best suit your space?

If you have a larger space to fill, consider the larger tiles of the Opus collection or wider wood planks available in the Van GoghOpus and Art Select ranges. If you're working in a smaller space or if you'd like to achieve a more traditional look, try Da Vinci's narrow wood planks or smaller Knight Tile products.

5. Do you want to define your space with unique details?

With Karndean Designflooring it's easy to personalize your floor with a wide range of design strips, borders and other custom design options.
