One of our biggest passions is home décor and we adore spending time pouring over home design magazines and blogs. So continuing our Valentine's themed week, we’ve put together some key steps on choosing a ‘forever floor’ to fall in love with...
Inspiration is everywhere, from magazines and social media to websites. We love collating our favourite designs on Pinterest. Pinterest is a brilliant tool for inspiration, but if you’re not sure where to start, simply head over to our profile to check out our boards. You can download the ‘Pin It’ button so that you can add to your own Pinterest boards whilst you’re browsing the web!
Still stuck for ideas? Head over to the Explore by Style section of our website for even more inspiration.

Try out your designs
Here at Karndean, we know it can be difficult to think of new ideas and visualise them in your space. So once you have an idea of what you’re looking for, head over to our Floorstyle designer to put it all together. Choose from a wide range of rooms to visualise your floor. You can even change wall colours to match your space. Alternatively, try our augmented reality app, where you can see your favourite floors in your very own home!
Narrow it down
By now, you should have a better idea of what you like, and what will work well in your space. You may have already requested flooring samples, but if not, now is the time! Finally, make a note of your favourite products and book a consultation with your retailer. You can find your local showroom by using our Find a Retailer tool.
See it in real life
Your local retailer will help you to understand the differences between the ranges and decide which product would best suit your lifestyle. You can then create designs on the retailer’s play table – using real flooring to firm up your decision. Try playing around with laying patterns and mixing products to create a truly bespoke look and be sure to take a few full sized samples home to see how they look in your space throughout the day as the lighting changes.
Leave the rest to your retailer!
Once you’ve made your decision, you can sit back and relax, safe in the knowledge that your retailer will manage the project from here through to completion. You’ll be pleased to know that Karndean is quick to install in comparison to other floorcoverings – your retailer will be able to give you a more accurate estimate. The lifetime residential guarantee means that once it’s fitted, you can enjoy your custom-created floor for years to come.
