Discover the benefits of gluedown flooring

What is gluedown?


Gluedown is a format of luxury vinyl flooring that is fixed to a perfectly flat and dry subfloor using adhesive. Our gluedown ranges offer our widest choice of colours and formats. Features such as textured emboss or our premium handscraped finish, wide bevels or flat edges make each range unique to Karndean and serve to highlight the faithful replication of the original wood and stone that inspired each of our products.


Choose gluedown when...

  • You want to create your floor, with different laying patterns, design strips and decorative borders.
  • You want to be able to mix stone and wood designs and create a completely bespoke floor.
  • You have a completely flat, dry subfloor, prepared by a flooring professional.
