Palleo is a contemporary classic with its light honey tone and subtle grain. Chunky plank formats create a sense of space as well as making fitting of this style easier and quicker than smaller formats. Create interest by laying on a 45 or 90 degree angle.
Create a variety of looks by experimenting with different plank layouts for a classic or contemporary scheme.
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.
