Reintroducing our entry-level 12mil Knight Tile product range to offer the full selection of designs in an additional rigid core format; along with creating new visuals for the range.
Originally introduced to the US market in 1998 as a gluedown range, Knight Tile grew to offer a diverse mix of effortlessly stylish wood species and natural stones with universal appeal. Today’s Knight Tile range includes 14 woods sized 36” x 6” and 10 stones sized 12” x 18”, with all visuals available in both gluedown and rigid core constructions. Specify and design with the gluedown format for areas where a fully adhered product or intricate layouts are preferred and choose rigid core for applications that require enhanced acoustics.

The latest designs to join the range were developed from concrete, Carrara marble, Northern European oak and character oak pieces reclaimed from a wind-powered sawmill in Amsterdam. New colorways of the range’s existing Lake District slate design and Scandinavian pine design are also now available.
According to Karndean Designflooring Director of Marketing Jenne Ross, these new visuals are especially timely. “We were able to capture many market drivers in our latest visuals. The addition of mid-warm woods focus on the need for comfort and well-being as as many of us transition back into the office or travel post-pandemic,” Ross said. “Other new wood looks lean more traditional with some character knots, complementing a more airy aesthetic; and new aggregate concretes and a light, warm marble look add greater variety to our entry-level range.”
Mid Limed Oak Chevron Planks (shown in gluedown format)
We have also made two designs – Pale and Mid Limed Oaks – available in a 48” x 9”chevron plank format. Easily incorporate a classic chevron pattern into projects without the added time of making cuts on site; and for an even faster install, opt for the rigid core format. Another design element that aims to reduce install time is the addition of a painted bevel on all Knight Tile rigid core stones.
“We consider Knight Tile to be our entry-level product range because of its 12mil wear layer, but the quality and level of detail within the designs reflect what the design community has come to expect from Karndean Designflooring. Now that the full range of visuals is available in two constructions, specifying Knight Tile offers even more flexibility.” Ross added.
