How to plan your new floor

Posted on the 8/02/2019 by Karndean Designflooring

With the warm weather and longer days,  summer is the perfect time to explore a whole new look for your home.

Here at Karndean we can offer plenty of ideas and support to help you pick out a floor that will set off your new interior style to perfection.

Inspiration can be found in many places, with the latest trends on show in interiors magazines, designer showrooms, social media and blogs.

Pinterest and Instagram are both brilliant sources of inspiration. We love collating our favourite designs on Pinterest and now you can also save Instagram posts to your own collections. Why not head over to our profile on Instagram for some ideas to get you started.  

Our brochures

Here on our website you'll find plenty of great ideas. Our blog offers style inspiration and practical hints and tips to help you choose the perfect floor. Check out our style finder tool, scroll our library of images or search our product catalogue of designs inspired by stone and wood.

If browsing a catalogue is your preference, you can request our free brochure for delivery straight to your door or simply download your own digital copy.


Floorstyle designer tool featuring Korlok Washed Grey Ash RKP8104 

Here at Karndean, we know it can be difficult to visualise your ideas in your own space. So, once you have an idea of what you’re looking for, head over to our Floorstyle designer tool to put it all together. Use your own image or choose from a wide range of rooms, from kitchens and bathrooms to dining rooms and conservatories. You can even add design strips and decorative borders and compare two designs side by side.

Once you have a shortlist of flooring designs, it’s time to see them in real life! Why not order free samples from our website and see how designs look in your space throughout the day as the lighting changes. 

Our Melbourne showroom

A visit to our showroom in Knoxfield just off the Eastlink and Monash freeways, or to your local flooring retailer can help you understand the differences between the ranges and which product would best suit your lifestyle. You can then create floor layouts on our exclusive design table using real flooring. Try playing around with laying patterns and mixing products to create a truly bespoke look.

Once you’ve made your decision, you can sit back and relax, safe in the knowledge that your retailer will manage the project through to completion. You’ll be pleased to know that our lifetime residential guarantee means that once your new floor is fitted, you can enjoy Karndean’s benefits for many years to come.

We love to see your projects so please share your before and after photos with us on Instagram or Facebook.
