For almost 50 years, Karndean Designflooring has been a global innovator in luxury vinyl flooring. Our designers travel the world for inspiration in our ongoing quest to bring our customers exceptional and simply beautiful floors that deliver a lifetime of performance and enjoyment.
As a trusted market leader in Australia and New Zealand, we are excited to announce the addition of new designs to our Knight Tile and Van Gogh ranges. Alongside our beautiful new timber and stone-inspired designs, game-changing enhancements to our technical specifications now provide even more versatility for designers and specifiers.
New to the Knight Tile Range
Our popular Knight Tile range provides a choice of 16 wood and 6 stone-inspired designs available in gluedown or our 2G™ click-locking system rigid core formats. Every plank in the Knight Tile wood collection has been designed to reflect the authentic grain detail and intrinsic characteristics of natural timbers.

New to the Knight Tile wood collection are planks inspired by the versatile beauty of quintessential Australian hardwoods. With a touch of discrete colour, Coastal Blackbutt highlights the subtle graining and sap markings of renewing sapwood with a light and neutral finish. For a warm and golden touch, our Classic Spotted Gum beautifully captures the characteristics that make this a classic flooring choice for Australian interiors.
Inspired by planks reclaimed from an old wind-powered sawmill in Amsterdam, the new Blond Character Oak rounds out our selection of 13 oak planks. From the timeless elegance of Traditional Character Oak to the dark and moody tones of Shadow Studio Oak to washed and limed oak options, our Knight Tile range offers tones and styles to suit any interior.
Classic stone inspired designs
The Knight Tile stone collection provides a choice of six on-trend flooring designs. Just like our wood collection, these beautiful tiles have been inspired by natural materials. Find your inspiration in colour, effects, and styles such as the dark textures of Honed Charcoal Slate or the contemporary cool qualities of Smoked Concrete. Our versatile options feature a lightly textured surface that enhances their authentic appearance

Create your masterpiece with the Van Gogh Range
Our popular Van Gogh Range captures the look and feel of real timbers in a carefully curated collection of 20 timber-look planks available in gluedown or our 5G® click-locking rigid core format for ease and versatility of installation.
From classic European species such as oak, elm, maple, and birch to quintessential Australian timbers including blackbutt and spotted gum, the Van Gogh Range celebrates the intrinsic character and rich diversity of colour, tone, and texture of the world's most beautiful timbers.
New additions to the range this season include the on-trend tones of Natural Maple, subtly coloured to contrast lighter honey notes with highlights of darker brown. Smoked Maple, with its rich chocolate browns and moody dark accents, is a confident and sophisticated choice for contemporary interiors, while new designs inspired by oaks and Australian hardwoods extend the inspirational choices for your next project.

Now available in dual format
Our Knight Tile and Van Gogh ranges are now available in both gluedown and rigid core formats. This dual format enhancement means there are now even more ways to enjoy our beautiful floors as you can choose the design you want, in the format that you need.
Gluedown and rigid core extend your flooring options
Gluedown format where each plank is individually glued to the subfloor gives you complete control over the look of your floor – from laying patterns such as herringbone or the option to incorporate our design strips and borders.
Our rigid core ranges, or hybrid feature a 2G™ or 5G® click-locking system that means they can be laid quickly and easily over most existing hard floors without the need for adhesive. Additional benefits can include less disruption and downtime for businesses or public spaces as floors can be transformed quickly without the need for adhesive drying time.
Slightly thicker than the gluedown format, an additional acoustic backing on our hybrid rigid core ranges works to reduce noise transfer - for instance to rooms below or on stairways. Dual format provides new flexibility to use the design you prefer for a seamless look and seamless application throughout your project.
