Our Elm effect flooring has all of the interest and beauty of the real timbers, with none of the practical drawbacks. A mix of darker knots, and light and dark contour grains meet a warm, light wood tone for a versatile and homely style.
Create a variety of looks by experimenting with different plank layouts for a classic or contemporary scheme. We have numerous styles and sizes to choose from with our authentic large planks in Art Select, Van Gogh and Opus collections to slim and sophisticated looks in Da Vinci.
You can arrange planks running straight down the length of a room for a simple but authentic look or for smaller rooms why not try laying your planks on a diagonal to give the appearance of a wider space.
Ships Decking Effect
If you are looking for something a bit different try adding decorative strips in between each plank which we call ships decking to really define your floor. Choose a decorative strip as a contrast to your main floor to create a feature around your furnishings or define the shape of your room.
Add a Border
Allow your imagination to run free and create a floor that is unique to you -from a simple angled tramline perimeter strip to a smooth and sumptious Keyline curve, anything is possible with Karndean Designflooring.
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.
