Benefits of LooseLay

Quick and easy to install

All you need is a dry, sound, smooth and dust free subfloor and you're ready to go. It's great because it can be fitted over most existing hard floors.

Easy to repair

Should you need to replace a piece, simply lift the plank or tile in question and drop in a new one.

Warmer underfoot

Our products are softer and warmer underfoot than natural wood and stone flooring. For extra warmth, Karndean is easily used with underfloor heating systems.

Environmentally friendly

100% recyclable

Like the name suggests, you don't need adhesive*, meaning Karndean LooseLay is 100% recyclable. Why not move it into another room in the house for a change of scenery!

Acoustic qualities

Karndean LooseLay is perfect for projects where you want to reduce noise levels in rooms below such as playrooms, bedrooms and garage/loft conversions, without the need for underlay.


With a limited lifetime warranty you can rest assured your floor will last for years to come. Unlike real wood and stone, it won't splinter, warp or crack.

Low maintenance

All Karndean floors are simple to care for. All it needs is a quick sweep and run over with a mop, warm water and Karndean Clean.
