To create this extraordinary neutral design, we sourced volcanic slate by hand, selecting unique pieces of 300- million-year-old stone. We then gave them a smoother surface to let the fabulous fractured details you see now shine through. These tiles can be paired with a dark-coloured design strip for a striking effect, or a lighter strip for a subtler approach. There’s also the option to have no strips, as the variation within the tiles is enough to create a simply stunning canvas for your décor.
This design has an optional, matching Windsor border for added definition.
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.
