Introducing Van Gogh Rigid Core

Karndean Designflooring

We are excited to now offer 14 of our most popular designs from our Van Gogh range in a rigid core format, in addition to the existing gluedown luxury vinyl format. This allows you to choose the colour that suits your style in either gluedown or rigid core, to suit your needs.

Van Gogh gluedown provides you with peace of mind that planks will be permanently adhered to the subfloor and allows you to personalize your floor by choosing the direction and pattern in which planks are laid. This format also allows for the addition of “design strips” to create an inlay border or shiplap effect.

Alternatively, Van Gogh rigid core is a floating floor that clicks into place using our amazing 5G® click-locking mechanism without the use of adhesive. This format is our quietest to walk on thanks to the built in acoustic underlay, ideal for upstairs rooms in the home where you wish to minimise noise transfer to rooms below.

By offering these popular 14 colours in both gluedown and rigid core, you can first choose a colour that best suits your space and then select the format that better suits your needs. You may even choose to use both formats throughout the entire home by utilising the designability of our gluedown format on the ground level and the amazing acoustic properties of rigid core in upper levels of the home.

Woods within the Van Gogh range have evolved over the years to meet new trends while continuing to showcase enduring Karndean quality and performance. With its textured emboss and incredible replication of natural woods, Van Gogh continues to be a go-to range for gluedown. Popular favourites now available in rigid core include Spotted Gum, Birch, Oak and Reclaimed timbers.

Like our original rigid core product Korlok, Van Gogh rigid core features our 100% waterproof K-Core technology for installation over most existing hard floors whilst preserving them and without the worry of exposing subfloor imperfections. Rigid core is quick and easy to install and does not require the use of adhesive so rest assured in knowledge that you will enjoy less upheaval in the home during installation of this format.

Both formats are finished with K-Guard+ surface protection and a 0.5mm wear layer, guaranteed to provide durable surface perfect for busy households with kids and pets. Van Gogh rigid core planks are mid-sized at 1220mm X 180mm and features our amazing lifetime residential warranty to ensure you’ll have a beautiful floor that you’ll love for a lifetime.
