Soapstone, from the Knight Tile stone collection, gives you the tumbled, filled look of a real stone in versatile pale tones and with none of the porosity or coldness that can make real stone tiles so difficult to live with. Attractively neutral, soapstone can be accessorised to your personal style with a range of finishing touches, from grout effect strips to design borders and different laying angles.
For a clean and modern look choose square tiles without a design strip for a simple background to your space. For an authentic stone look try adding a pale decorative strip in between tiles for a realistic grout effect.
Straight or Diagonal Patterns
You can lay tiles on a straight angle creating a linear look or try diagonally to add a spacious feel to a small room.
Try a Border
If you are looking for simple design ideas try using a combination of feature strips in a variety of widths and effects, known as a tramline or keyline border to make a feature around your furniture. Your local retailer can suggest some ideas to complement your furnishings.
Create a Chequerboard Effect
For a classic look select different stone effects in contrasting colourways to create checkerboard tiles adding a unique look to bland spaces.
Karndean Designflooring has a wide range of personalisation options to help you achieve a unique look for your room. Why not try a design strip between wood effect planks for a different effect or to replicate the gaps between real wood floor boards?
You can also use design strips as borders around the edge of your room or around a key feature such as a fireplace or kitchen island unit. Thinner 3mm and 5mm strips can be used as keyline borders or in combination with wider 10mm, 30mm or 76mm widths to form a tramline design.
Design and feature strips that can be combined with this floor are shown below. Strips can also be requested as samples. To order a sample, simply click 'Add To Basket' next to the strip you like.
The Knight Tile range has a particularly wide range of designs, borders and design strip combinations, ensuring there’s something for everyone. Each floor is supplied in a hardwearing 0.3mm surface layer and comes with a lifetime residential guarantee.
