As a floral designer, I make a mess. A beautiful mess that is. Big buckets filled with murky flower water, thorns, petals, dirt, you name it. It all gets pushed around on the floor, spilled, cut and stepped on. Clean up was never fun at our old house. We had hardwood floors and I was constantly laying down drop cloths and cleaning up every drop of water as soon as it hit the floor. It was a nightmare. I knew that I needed something that would be water friendly and durable. Our Karndean floors are just out of a dream. Every time I create my florals, I am now able to concentrate on designing my arrangements vs. cleaning up and wiping down my mess.
I’m a self described renovation enthusiast and I searched near and far for a floor that was a wide plank with a golden colour, and none of the big box stores came close with what they carried. I wanted a pet and kid friendly floor that also looked like real wood! I started to research the Karndean pictures I had seen on Pinterest and found a local dealer, and I’m extremely happy with the quality and realistic wood look!
Some friends have Karndean and I was very impressed. This flooring looks awesome with a gloss white kitchen. Very easy to keep clean even with 2 kids running in and out!! Comes with a lifetime guarantee. I'm that impressed will eventually have all down stairs done in Karndean.
My kitchen and hall were fitted in 2013. As advised I used qualified Karndean fitters who made sure that the floor was correctly prepared and did a fantastic job. Both the kitchen and hall floors still look as though they had been completed 12 days ago rather than the 12 months that have now passed. The flooring is soft and warm to the touch and underfoot, even first thing on a winter morning. It is easy to clean with just a brush or a damp cloth which is important for us as we have six grandchildren who sometimes decide that the best place for their food is on the floor!!
Karndean flooring is excellent value and I have on several occasions recommended it to my friends and family. I will shortly be purchasing more flooring from Karndean when I re-decorate my dining room.
We love our Karndean floor! We chose Classic Oak laid on the diagonal with a border strip around the edge of the room and the kitchen units. With a four year old, a two year old and a newborn we needed a floor for our kitchen and family room which was easy to keep clean, was warm underfoot and could withstand anything a toddler could throw at it and our Karndean floor has not disappointed. It complements the traditional feel of our kitchen, giving the room a classic yet sophisticated feel.
Karndean has provided my wife and I with the perfect finishing touch to transform our bungalow, into our home! We initially discovered Karndean at the Grand Designs show in London last last year (2014) and as they say, the rest is history.
We are delighted with the flooring. We have had an extension on the kitchen with bifolding doors, taking the room into the garden. The Karndean flooring has been used from the front door right through the hall and kitchen. We are impressed with how warm it is. We did think we would need underfloor heating but are glad we didn't. The Country oak is easy to live with and enhances the light wooden kitchen units. Our 18 month old grandson loves running and playing on it. The cars go very fast!!
It's comfortable, low maintenace, great value, looks great and is generally really practical - especially with young children. Van Gogh Ebony is dark but really striking and I wouldnt change it for anything! Highly recommend Karndean!
Hi, my name is David, I'm a design floor installer from Northern Ireland. I have over 15 years' experience in the floor covering industry working with many different products, both domestic and commercial. I cut my teeth with Karndean flooring when I was just an apprentice many years ago and fell in love with the product. The versatility of the many ranges, and feature designs still give me a lot of satisfaction and simply blow my mind from start to finish of an installation. I've met many lovely people through my working life so far and had the pleasure to fit some amazing floors both at home and as far away as a tiny island in the Caribbean! I'm looking forward to many more years fitting and meeting new people all with the love for Karndean flooring. Simply an amazing product not just for the customer, but also for us fitters. It's simply a joy to work with!
We wanted a dark wood floor for our new bathroom installed in 2014. Having opted for a dark wood, high gloss product and we were devastated when it bubbled, peeled and was basically wrecked within weeks. The suite had to be removed to allow the floor to be ripped up. We managed to get a refund, and replaced the floor with Karndean Atra. We are so pleased with the durability, it is fit for purpose, not slippery and looks amazing. Thank you for rescuing our bathroom!
Nine years ago I went to view a house, it had Karndean throughout the downstairs. I'd never heard of it before but immediately fell in love with the design. We were sadly gazumped, but I vowed I would get Karndean one day.
Anyway, after Christmas I decided it was time to get the hall done and my first stipulation was Karndean.
On recommendation we found a fab shop that was also recommended by Karndean on their website and even better we got our carpet there, too (Phil Williams flooring Liverpool). So the Floor was chosen - Pale Limed Oak -and has been in a few days now. It has had lots of visitors who think it is fab.
Any regrets.. YES... Why didn't I get it in the front room, too (I will)! The product is so warm and looks like the quality floor it is!
After having my kitchen replaced after 30 years with a striking cream kitchen. I wanted a floor with the wow factor.
I decided on the Santi limestone with Canterbury border. It looks amazing. Everyone comments on it. It is a large kitchen and the border makes it look so special. I loved it so much had my hall done straight after with with RP91 Lorenzo warm oak with a light border. I now want the bathroom done. Well, in fact, would like the whole house done.
The product is so warm to walk on not like my old thick quarry tiles and the staff at Karndean were very helpful sending me lots of samples.
Our Karndean floor in our kitchen means family time. It was fitted as the final part of a Grand Designs extension that saw our house without a kitchen for 18 months. As a family we were dispersed! After builders, plasterers, electricians, heating engineers, decorators, glazers and carpenters, the relief when the flooring contractor arrived was immense.
So now the work is over and the floor is down we have a room that together we can all enjoy; share stories of the day and like any modern family spend the majority of the evening glued to a screen or another!
However, once the floor was laid the final icing on the cake for the family arrived, she was an 8 week puppy called Lottie.
We selected Summer Oak from just a sample and are extremely delighted now we have seen it across a large area. The bigger planking is very effective. It looks modern and fresh in daylight and warm and inviting in the evening. The texture gives it a vitality not expected and makes it hardly distinguishable from the real thing.
We've also underfloor heating which works superbly well and is ideal for those winter mornings. Everyone loves it when they visit.
And back to the dog; she's put the floor through its paces in one way or another but it's taken everything she can throw at it literally. She's now growing up, a big part of the family and bringing no end of stuff in from the garden including mud, rocks, plants and a passion for chewing branches to a fine saw dust.
However, whatever she does we have no worries as the floor is always easily swept and cleaned!
We've got karndean American oak in the hall already, it's been down 8 years now and has been so enduring. So having created an open plan kitchen/dining space the only choice for us was Karndean flooring again because we wanted to create the realism of a stone floor, but with warmth underfoot safe in the knowledge that it would be a sound investment. The final result in Portland stone looks stunning. It's so durable, easy to maintain and provides the "wow" factor to the overall project.
My floor provides extra comfort on those cold mornings when you put your bare feet on the floor and when normally the floor is freezing cold, this isn't. Along with the great look and feel of the product you instantly get the feeling you are walking on a real wooden floor. I've had friends and family who all think I've had real wooden floors put in throughout my house and every time I have to lift their jaws from off the ground when I tell them that it is actually vinyl.
At Whitby Holiday Home.com we established our luxury family self catering business in 2011, with our Whitby Pad apartment being the very first property we offered to guests. We wanted the apartment to be luxury but child friendly, so thought carefully about the kind of flooring we should use.
We discounted carpets as an option straight away as we wanted a cohesive look throughout the apartment and so needed something practical enough to go under a dining table. We seriously considered solid wood floors, but were worried about causing too much noise for the apartment below. Karndean's high quality vinyl seemed the perfect solution. Easy to clean, with the stunning look of wood; but much warmer and quieter under foot.
Three years on, it still looks perfect and has lived up to the rigours of holiday guests. We are currently renovating our third apartment in preparation for holiday guests and plan to use one of the stunning Karndean Parquet products throughout.
Quality and design that suits my 1913 cottage. Apart from it's stunning look it's easy to clean, comfortable to walk on and is everything I hoped it would be. I also love the grout strips that add to the finished effect. Superbly laid too. Very happy customer.
I love all of my new kitchen, but the best part is the Karndean floor which I chose to provide some drama and to work well with the adjoining dining room carpet. As soon as I put the samples out on the design table in the Evesham showroom the floor I'd imagined came to life. The fitter from Newman's in Tewkesbury understood exactly what I wanted and took care positioning the tiles in relation to grain and colour. It's beautiful quality and gives us constant pleasure.
I am an animal lover and have several pets. I am so delighted with my Karndean floor as it is so warm, easy to clean and quiet. Here is my pet dog Tilly looking super cute on my beautiful Karndean floor. I would recommend Karndean to anyone. Thank you Karndean!
This floor is outstanding, whenever we have guests over their first comment is: “where did you get this floor – it is beautiful!” I have handed out many business cards for the Karndean Designflooring showroom. The quality, the price and the service is like no other!
What I loved most about the Korlok design was the texture of the plank, it felt like it was real wood. The plank size was also ideal; I wanted a larger format plank to fit in with the current design trends.
We are thrilled with how well the entire suite came together. Our vision for a bright, airy and open space was complimented by the old world look of the Savannah Oak that we had laid in the herringbone pattern. We never could have imagined how well the product would look.
We chose our flooring from the Karndean Showroom in Burlington. We took samples home to see it in our space and as soon as we did we new this was the perfect floor for our bedroom. We laid it on a 45 as well and it turned out beautifully!
I love our floors! We have them in our entire house. They are very durable which we need because we have three boys ages 6 and under. I love the look of them and so many people mistake them for real wood.
